Ive been eyeing these for a while now, especially since theyre so cheap. Can anyone compare these to any full size headphones? I dont have much experience with decent iems. Im really just concerned that i should be saving a little more to get the gr07 since im used to full size cans like shure srh840, grados and trying some sennheisers and beyers. Any thoughts or advice would be much appreciated
for full size headphones, i have the sennheiser hd-580s and just run it off my macbook. soundstage is pretty excellent on them and they're very airy. i could listen to them for hours with no problem. now for iems, i've had some decent cheap, budget iems and enjoyed some of them a lot. some of them, like the vsonic gr02 bass edition, i could listen to for a long time and enjoyably rock out while on the subway and bus.
my problem with the gr04 fe is that it doesn't rock out. accurate and great sound technically, but for my everyday traveling needs it falls short. the op mentioned this too, and i wish i were more confident originally to carry around a $150 set of headphones.
if you're gonna be using these occasionally, then it's fine and a great value. if you're thinking about using them frequently and can afford it, maybe look at the gr07 instead. i'm looking towards the gr07 bass edition as my next upgrade.
