I also had doubts about over the ear, but GR07 is very comfortable, once you put them in your ears you just forget they are there, the adjustable nozzle and the flush fit helps a lot. If you listen to rock and metal GR07 has amazing timbre, natural sound and instrument separation. The guitars, drums and vocals sound just great. As far as I know the most recommended IEM for Rock and Metal on this forum is GR07. Maybe for other genres like EDM or RAP there are better in this price range, but for Rock is hard to beat IMO.
Easily the most comfortable for 'over-the-ear' wear I've had so far, so that shouldn't dissuade anyone when choosing. The GR07 is typically the most recommended for Rock/Metal, and I have to agree there - hard to best indeed. I feel the RE-400 isn't far behind in most aspects though, soI genuinely feel they are well suited for those genres (else I'd have just moved straight to the MKII) but still... I'm left with a bit of separation anxiety without a GR07. Perhaps one day we will be reunited
Still no info on the VSD7 and VSD9 release date but apparently the VSD9's driver diaphragm is made of some very unique and rare material or whatever coz vconic's ceo said it's so hard to obtain that now they can make only 120 VSD9 units a year, which makes it quite the limited edition iem. VSD9's price for overseas will be $650.
Graphene?? I wish...
