moving from sleek audio sa6 - vsonic gr07 or something else...help!

post #1 of 4
Thread Starter 

hey guys,

  i have been a sleek audio sa6 user for about 7 months now. i like the sound quality and prefer to listen it with bass= and treble+ ports. i find that the sound quality over all is quite good.

   ive had major cable damage issues. i had to change 3 cables in 7 months. its crazy that i have to spend 20$ every 2 months or so for maintenance and go without listening to music in between cable exchanges. so i decided to move on.

 

   i listen mostly to alternative rock and metal but also listen to all kinds of genres like classical and pop.

 

   the features in the iem im looking for are:

1. very very good detail

2. good build quality

3. over the ear design

4. fair amount of bass - quality is more important that quantity.

5. under 250$

 

presently im leaning towards VSONIC GR07 or Hifiman RE262.

 

can anybody compare these iems with the sleek audio sa6? and also can u suggest any other iems that can suit me?

 

thanks in advance!:)

Ortofon e-Q5 is amazing option for you

Built is superb still among few IEMs made in Japan.

Bass is just right very clear and punchy quite amazing for BA type.

there are a number of reviews

thanks yello131 for the suggestion, ill definitely go through the reviews!

 

i was hoping some one could compare sa6 sound with the vsonic gr07.

 

i live in india, so there is no way i can try any of these earphones by myself without buying.

You are welcome,

 

and cheer up, most of us have no chance to audition IEMs so we bond to rely on our intuition and reviews primarily.
