VSONIC GR07 Impressions Thread - Page 376

post #5626 of 7378

I just got a set of these for $130.  Very nice, I can see why Vsonic has received so much love from the community.  I'm really thrilled with the tip selection of which multiple options work for me (extremely unusual).  Every manufacturer should adapt the trend of including a dozen different tips; 3 or 4 often doesn't cut it.

Im testing every single tip, right now im with the blue ones. I've managed to get a seal and get them pumping decent bass. The bad news is, it just needs way too much pressure.. you need to push them so deep in your ear canal is just not comfortable. Sound is great tho..

I find the bass fantastic in these - a couple of good recordings which highlight its great bass control are Whites Off Earth Now! MFSL by The Cowboy Junkies and Endtroducing by DJ Shadow.

I found that this is the best fitting most comfy iem that I've ever tried or owned. I'm using the small Sony hybrids tips. Tug on top rim of the ear and wiggle the outside of the iem in concentric circle and get to a comfortable medium level. Works great for me.

It means you're simply not getting a good seal. Keep testing tips.

Im still testing tips, I still have all the ones that come in the black foam (7, the coloured ones)

Im talking about that black leather pocket thing.. are you supossed to store them there? but I have no idea how to open the bag, it's sealed.

 

I also also like to know what 1/4 jack converter I need as I also need it for my DAC, as well as an extension cable. Can you guys give me ebay links to decent ones?

The hard case is what the original gr07 came with. Apparently you got the version with the spring clasp pouch. So you just push to the sides simultaneously and it opens. 

I personally hated this case and never used it but I have a lot of other cases. You can buy yourself a proper one.

As far as the 1/4 inch adaptrer and extension cable you might just go to your local electronics store and buy them. They should definitely have some instead of ordering online.

I really liked that case, I'd just store the IEM housings inside and leave the cable hanging out. How I store all my IEMs around the house.

It was the spring clasp that was awful and too tight. I still have a couple of these cases but I've removed the clasp and replaced it with simple string. I still prefer the brainwavz cases for storing my iems. They are my favorite and have so much space inside - even for a second pair of iems http://www.mp4nation.net/brainwavz-earphones/brainwavz-earphone-hard-case

I might get one of those cases, I agree the ones usually provided don't supply enough room or are a tight fit. Regarding the vsonic case, if you ever get another one open it really far past its normal threshold and the clip bends, makes it easier to push apart from then on.

I find the bag is useful for holding all the tips but it doesn't provide any actual protection.  Another thumbs up for the excellent Brainwavz case that came with my R1.

Unfortunately i've given up. Tried every single tip and i never felt comfortable. My ear cannal feels sort of inflammated after like 30 minutes. I was loving the sound so it's unfortunate.

I want to buy some earbuds (not IEMs that need to be stick inside your ear canal) for casual listening (I think I give up to the idea of producing with IEMs..) any options? I want maximun comfortability.

post #5638 of 7378

How can you not feel super confortable with foam tips with the correct size for you? Have you tried to straighten up you ear canal and compressing the tips before puting them in?

post #5639 of 7378

I understand how he feels. The only IEM that has ever been comfortable for me was the Ety ER-6i. The GR-07's are simply too big. The square housing pushes on 2 sides of my ear once inserted. I've have tried and tried to like these and @ most I can wear them for 15 to 30 minutes comfortably. I can't get myself to sell them however because occasionally, I can get by almost an hour...and they sound so damn good. :/

But your problem seems to be the iems housing, you might have small ears like me, with the time I got used to it and found new ways to put them in a way that was confortable for me. 

Initially I had pressure problems in my ear canal because I used the wrong tips and didn't quite place them correctly and that would result obviously in ear pain and headaches.

Just trying to help, thats all.
