That comparison is on the first page of this thread.
Thanks for your reply, i read the first page hence got compelled to ask the question. originall you scored
TLDR = FX700>=GR07>IE8
but after gr07 be and mkII what is the ratio' what is ur top fav gr07 be or fx700?
The BE isn't my favorite. I actually think all are equal. If you were to rank them, It would go like this
GR07 BE = MKII >= MKI = FX700.
They're all technical equals, but the sound signatures differ widely.
HAHA! So true. They're suppose to be here no later than 8PM MST and it's 530PM!! My TF10's have been gone for nearly a year, I have no idea how I suffered so long w/ the Klipsch S4's.
So there's an RE-Zero and an RE0? Really? Would RE1 have been that difficult? That's worse than the 9800GTX!
I owned the RE0's and the TF10's @ the time. I hated one for what they other had and vice versa. I wanted the RE0's mids w/ a soundstage as wide as the 10's. Instrument separation rocked on the 10's for trance/classical. But then someone would say something on the track and I wouldn't hear it because the mids on the 10's hid under the blankets.
So Ontrac just stopped by w/ my new GR07...
So not only are they the wrong product, but they've got ear wax on the tips. I ordered from Overstock Deals ~ fulfilled by Amazon because:
1. picture was clearly an MKI/MKII
2. review said he got an MKII
3. Feedback Rating: 4.8 stars over the past 12 months (98,415 ratings)
Is this my fault. Absolutely. Am I disappointed? Not @ all. Here's why:
1. Amazon is refunding me immediately
2. Amazon is letting me keep these GR07 Bass editions for 30 days
3. Amazon is giving me a credit of $20 So it looks like I'll get a chance to compare the MKII's w/ the Bass edition. :D
Now...time to start cleaning w/ 99.9% alcohol...
Edit: Also, I have to purchase this w/ a prepaid visa (hence the amazon over lendmeurears purchase). Ideas of where to buy from next?
Edit2: Is mp4nation.net a safe place to order from?
I really liked the FX700 as well. One thing to note though is that the treble is very aggressive. It's not sibilant, just very present. I found it best to listen at lower volumes.
If you want to go full-sized, you could look into the HD600 or the DT880.
That's a perfect description! I still stand by what I said about the 07:
I'd describe the FX700 as a Kim Kardashian, and the GR07 as *insert beautiful, wife-type woman here*
So you're saying the FX700 is hyped for absolutely no reason whatsoever and makes people dumber the longer they listen to it?
I wish I would have known! Oh wells...
I just bought these from Amazon with 2 day shipping. I got in on a deal for the TF10's a while ago. They sounded amazing but they felt like I was getting ear-raped after about 20-30 minutes so I sold them. Since then I've been listening to my modded Koss KSC75's and JVCXX $15 headphones. I was listening to a song with the jvc's and the simbilance from a certain vocal made me feel like I had been ear-raped again so I had to finally spring for another pair of respectable iems.
Where did you get them from? Amazon, but which seller?
Also, I posted this in another thread and will probably post in the official, so sorry if you see it 3x.
Here's a couple pics. First one has them being worn the "correct" way. The second pic shows how they have to be for my ears sake. I think for music, there will be no issues. I have no intentions of wearing these for movies or games. What do you guys think?
cables out front, square in ear
cables out bottom, square out
I'm pretty sure the picture you've labeled the 'correct way' of wearing the GR07s is a bit off. The top left corner of the earpiece (the square part) should be pushed towards your head and the whole piece should be flush. They are basically sitting in your ear at an unnatural angle and I don't think they'd fit anybody properly like that. The way you have the cable pulling them down may be causing the discomfort, so try looping the cable over your ears. If the earpiece won't sit flush inside your ears without putting pressure on any cartilage, I have to say these are not for you. The bottom picture looks as though they are precariously inserted into your ears and it's hard to imagine them being comfortable for long listening sessions as you have them inserted. Of course, I reserve the right to be wrong and I hope I am since they are great iems. Mine are currently being re-cabled by BTG Audio and I'll post pics when I get them back.
