post #6811 of 6822

Will get a chance to compare the Bass Edition to the Classic, in addition to a modding idea I have in mind. I will let you guys know how it goes as soon as I get the chance to do this comparison.

Please do :D.  I have been itching to grab myself a pair of classics for a backup in case my bass editions eventually break.

Whatever mod that you're going to do, don't recable the BE with silver cabs. I made the mistake once. ONCE!

Nah it's a simple mod, what happened to the BE when you did that?

It then had too much bass. Bass bleeds into everything. The silver cables open up the frequencies nicely, but with an IEM already called "Bass Edition", it's too much of a good thing.

I don't think its cause of the cable, it's the physical change of the back of the driver. Somehow it became more open in the back which equals more bass

Maybe you left bigger hole at the back of housing? This can explain your problem! While recabling GR07 remember to use original rubber piece ('the black rubber thing on housing from which comes out the cable'). If original cable failed, just cut it off accurately with knife and get out the shielding and cable parts from it. Than insert new cable in the hole. You can enlarge the hole in it with awl because it is resin. Also very important to glue housing tightly to prevent sound leakage.

M6 biflanges seem like a good option, I'll do a lot of tip experimentation with these soon and see what I can come up with for sibilance, the trick is to tame it without messing the other parts of the treble too much. 

 

Would you consider the bores on Vsonic's included tips big or small? They each have a diameter of just under 4mm, except for the foam tips, which clock in at 5mm.

 

Of the five pairs of included tips, four of them have the same length, between 10 and 11mm. (The fourth one may be a fraction of a millimetre longer than the others.) Do you think these tips are a good length, or should I look into something longer? How long are the M6 biflanges?

 

Does switching between single-flange, bi-flange, and foam tips affect sibilance?

See the tips thread. Other than that, you may want to try a different IEM.

 

Where is the tips thread? Would you give the link?

Is there any place online to buy these tips without buying the MH1? If there is, I can't seem to find it.

Thanks guys. Unfortunately I didn't keep that BE, but this is one thing I'd make sure to take note of

Burned in with about 100+ hours, and these were the best iem (so far) I have bought biggrin.gif
Would definitely recommend this for a friend, if it is within their budget biggrin.gif

Disclaimer First mini review, might not use the correct terms to describe the sound.

First impressions: ( Gro7 Bass Edition)
When i first put them on, i was underwhelmed my the bass responce, as i was expecting it to have more quantity like the Im50. It was the second most comfortable iem i have tried, the first being the Um1.

After getting used to the sound, ~10 hours:
The sound settled in my head, and was surprised of the sound quality from this small iem. Had a fairly wide soundstage, tight bass, and clear sounding overall. However, there were some sibilance ( of course for this) that sometimes ruins the vocals on some Electronic songs i listen to

~100 hours burn in:
Pretty much the same, but with clearer bass, and significantly less sibilance at medium volumes.

'Mini review" done using RHA silicone hybrid tips and Fiio X1, all FLAC files.
