Do you guys think the Bass Edition is worth the extra ~$30?

 

I've been enjoying my VSD3S for about half a year now and I'm probably going to get the gr07 for my next earphone (Budget is around $100)

Well, as you'd think, it depends how much bass you want. The VSD3S has a bit more bass than the GR07 and less than the BE.

Really? I thought it was agreed, the VSD3S had more bass than both. GR07 CE and Bass edition have very similar bass, the Bass Edition has a subtle subbass boost and that's it. I feel this makes the Bass Edition sound better because the GR07 does lack that subbass boost imo and it's done tastefully so. They're still quite close, the name is misleading, I'll have a review on these two soon...

 

edit: bass on the graphs of inner fidelity VSD3S has more midbass and the GR07BE has a bit more subbass that's the difference. The regular edition as a result has less midbass than VSD3S but their subbass are similar.

All I can say is that I spent extensive time testing all 3 against each other and those were my findings. The GR07BE had noticeably more midbass and subbass than the VSD3S in my tests. My CE and BE were like night and day in the low end. This was with the stock medium tips on each.

I compared the two on the other hand and found the BE to be slightly bumped in the sub-bass and that's it. Midbass was generally equal. 

 

in addition, IF graphs seem to coincide

Have people come up with mods to eliminate the spike at 6.5khz for these iems?

i found the subbass was the biggest difference in terms of the bass

 

the midrange clarity on the gr07be was definitely drier and leaner 

 

the vsd3s are much thicker and warmer

 

treble oddly i found the vsd3 more peakier (less refined)

 

where as the gr07be was more extended and airer

 

but as many stated earlier the original price difference between the vsd3s and the gr07be is much larger than the performance would indicate.

 

i'm still enjoying my vsd3s to this day, and these days they get more ear time than the gr07be simply because i prefer it's better isolation for commuting purposes. that said my gr07 is still my favorite sounding earphone... so far anyway =0.

 

just grabbed a pair of 0f the audio technica im70 recently. Lets see if they can take that title away from the gr07bes =0
