nice review! i'm interested to know how the bass of the coppers compare to hippo vb and to a gr07?

 

i'm wondering if extending my budget for the coppers is worth it over vb or gr07. Thanks :)

Among the three, VB has the biggest bass slam (speed and impact) , Copper doesn't reach out quite as deep (though close) but offer more bass body (more mid bass and decay). GR07 is relatively more neutral in amount, but reaching just as deep as VB.

 

The question is, what kind of sound are you looking for? Copper sounds noticeably richer and warmer than the other two. GR07 is more neutral yet slightly warm, offering an monitor like sound, VB is more v-shaped in response. If you are looking for a bass monster of a V-shaped response, I think the new Atrio MG7 should also be considered if your budget goes up to $160 or so. Copper, GR07 and VB (or Atrio) do not sound alike and you might prefer one over the others. However, Copper is still worth the money if you can find it at $250 or so.

Thank you for your insights!

 

I'm looking for an iem with a generally warm sound signature. I mainly listen to Rock, RnB, party? songs, acoustic, and bossa nova. I also listen to jazz and classical once in a while. I'm not really a bass-head, but I do want to have a strong bass (with decent mids and highs).

 

I'm currently using an mee m6, and while i do love the way it sounds overall, i feel that it lacks on the bass department as compared to my former cx500, and imo needs some refinement on the highs. Base on some reviews here at head-fi, i'm thinking that gr07 might fit my needs, but i'm not so sure yet.

 

Sorry if I can't describe clearly/directly the frequency response of my preference, but base on my preferred genre would the $219 coppers be the best for me over the other choices?

 

Thanks in advance! :)

Both GR07 @ $160 and Copper @ $219 are good choice. GR07 is technically better (more accurate), and Copper is more musical. If you are not particularly looking for a warm and full sound, I would think GR07 is the safe choice for you.
