Sounds good then. I was planning to get one for morning runs. But after hearing a lot of complaints about the build quality, I kind of stop dead in my tracks.

Yeah...idk, I know people have had problems, but I haven't; I'm sure Shure will set you up with a replacement if you have those kinds of problems. The sound is great and the price is right, which is what mattered to me ksc75smile.gif

A bit confused between

 

 

Future Sonics Atrios - £109
IE7                          - £110
SE215                     - £79
 
Can you suggest which one is better ...

If you already like the sound of the GR07, try out the DigiZoid Zo when it's released this month. It boosts the bass to your preference without touching the rest of the frequencies. It should also be at, or below, the price of the SE215

Without having heard the futures it boils down to :-

 

If you need isolation pick the shures, if you don't need isolation get the senns.

If you can EQ, that would be the cheapest solution. The bass responds quite well to an equalizer.

SE215... just don't. They sound awful compared to the GR07, unless the only thing you care about is slow, muddy and loud bass. 'Cause that's what they will sound like after the GR07.

This is a good idea and I should have mentioned it earlier. I have the zo v1 and it mates nicely with the gr07 and can give you tons of bass.

It's hard to imagine the GR07 *not* having enough bass for someone, but everyone's ears are different. 

 

Anyhow, I would concur that 1) you should continue the "burn-in" process, since mine seem to have more low-end than when I first received them, and 2) consider trying many other ear tips -- both for the sound sig, as well as for proper isolation.  In my case, I'm actually using the large, gray Ety triple-flange ear tips (strange, I know) cut down to a bi-flange.  They have more low-end than any other ear tip I've tried -- which is many, many -- and sibilance is nearly non-existent.

Oh tips? Well, I guess genuine Sony Hybrids did perhaps bring out a bit more bass, maybe.

I get the impression that the OP wants big big bass, and I don't think new tips are going to tweak the sound enough achieve that.

Playing around with different tips is fun (if you ignore the mounting expenses), and can indeed help shape the nuances of the sound. But that's not going to magically give IE8-like bass.

I heard three of them (not the SE215) and I suggest the IE7. The atrio is excellent in the bass department but I felt that everything else was lacking.

Not heard the atrios or the se215 but if they are in the same league as the IE7 ,forget them and go for the tfta ,extra bass ,which is much Superior to the IE7 in sound quality and technical ability.

+1 on FX700. I actually want to get rid of mine because it has too much bass for me compared to GR07 lol basshead.gif

The GR07 is certainly a nice earphone.  First, the GR07 is a dynamic driver earphone meaning it does need break in time, a moderate amount, apparently above average.  This will help loosen up and fill out the low end.  Second, if you are accustomed to products that produce an excess of bass, that sound of excess becomes the normal.  At this point, you seek that "normal" from every other product you use regardless of if it's correct or not.  You have to decide if you prefer a colored signature or are willing to simply get used to the flatter presentation.  The GR07 certainly isn't a bass god though.  It does lack the authority that should be there and that is offered by other products.  The sound stage is also a little closed in.  Both, in my opinion (guess), are a result of the use of a relatively weak motor.  There is limited overall power of the motor used in this earphone.  This shows through with the lack of bass authority as well as a limit in dynamic range that results in a smaller overall sound stage.

 

In the end you do still have to enjoy the experience, and it's not like you're stuck with the product forever.  If you don't like something you simply try something else.

 

The GR07 was $150.  You are looking for something in that ball park.  You want more bass, something less analytical and more fun, a bigger sound stage, retention of good overall sound quality and detail, and  you want comfort.  You want all of this within $150.

 

The challenge is as with any change you will need to accept a series of trade offs.  For example, one earphone I really like is UE's (not Logitech) Triple.Fi 10.  It suits most of what you're looking for.  It has more bass, thick and punchy.  It is less analytical and more fun.  The sound stage is well sized and layered.  The sound quality remains excellent.  However, comfort is a mixed bag.  The earphones are large and oddly shaped.  It takes time to bend the memory wire to a correct shape, and the single flange tips are almost pointless.  It does now come with Comply tips which helps, but it's advisable to look into other tip options to help with the fitment issue.  Once you can manage a good fit, it's a great earphone.  The presentation is colored versus the very balanced GR07, but it will bring a lot of the fun factor into the experience.  The best part is this top tier earphone has a market rate of around your $150.

+1 on everything our good friend mvw2 has mentioned in regards to the TF10, which remains my most favorite fun & musical in-ear.

More bass, great sound stage...the Atrio's will be very pleasing for you.

 

The stock silicon tips provide great overall sonic presentation and very good sound stage. The stock foamies take sound stage to another level...to an AMAZING level !!! But they are not very durable.
