There are so many different types of EDM, dismissing it as a genre is to just dismiss some potentially great music. Glad you are at least prepared to check some of it out cool.gif

 

I am largely a rock/metal head, but there are some specific types of EDM I also enjoy, in the same way as I like something like Jonny Cash but don't particularly like Country music as a whole rolleyes.gif

I need a extension cable to add to the gr07 stock cable for some extra length for desktop listening. Can someone direct me on some possibilities for this? I would need about three extra feet.

 

thanks...

See if Brian from BTG-Audio can make one for you. He does great work for very fair pricing.

Sending him an email now. Any other thoughts?

Just a little shout out to Brian at BTG-Audio, I highly recommend. He communicated with me through the entire process, and when he was done, I got a picture and a tracking number.

Here they are:

 

 

Tell me what you guys think!!!

^^ eek.gif  Me like!!! Are you still able to wear them over ear?

post #4887 of 6937

Those aren't mine. I just posted here because I think it's relevant to this thread too. You should ask the owner about the fit on the thread I linked above, but I can't see why it wouldn't be possible to wear them over the ear after that great recabling job...

After months of usage with my mk1, I still think their sound sig is leaning more towards 'fun sound' rather than neutral. They have a slightly dominant bass (although it is fast and clean), and slighly scooped mids that makes distorted guitar oriented music less enjoyable to me. What I currently have that I consider neutral is the DT 1350. Some says their sound sigs are very close to each other but I really have to disagree. They may share the delicious sub-bass they both posses, but I think the DT 1350, although it extends lower, has a more neutral response. It has clean mids that I always miss on my GR07s. It's unnescessary to state the obvious details that the two is not in the same league to be compared. Just wanted to share that the GR07s (mk1 v.2) are not very neutral for my preference. But as many believe (I believe no one will disageee), they're one of the best out there when it comes to value:performance ratio.

I don't think the Beyer and GR07 sounds alike at all too. The Beyer has better transparency and clarity but has a trade off in its slightly artificial sounding treble. Something sounds off and dry between the mids and treble. The GR07 doesn't have that problem but tends to be more sibilant.

I can't speak to the DT1350's but don't disagree that the mids on the GR07 fall just short of ideal.  Don't get me wrong, I REALLY like these IEMs, but I've probably been spoiled by the forward, silky mids of SE530's and SM3's. (But those are $400 range IEMs.) That said, I would not call the GR07 mids "recessed" by any means.  I find that overall sound sig to be pretty close to flat.  But the mids just aren't quite as forward as I'm used to.  But I will say, dollar for dollar, I've never heard a better IEM than GR07!
