Well they appear identical.  The difference with the flagship was frequency response and impedance IIRC.  Just because they are cheaper through one seller doesn't mean they are different.   Mark2410 believes the R04 is the more balanced and better sounding of the two.  I believe the R06 has more bass impact.

Ok then i'l trust ur opinion. As says my friend - i will get used to any sound. And as the difference is not so big i guess to take the gr06. Hope to get 'em as soon as possible. I'll write my opinion for them. Thanx for help.

Compared to the Monoprice they are better in just about every respect but not by as much as you may think.  They have more bass quantity, a more enveloping soundstage and are as smooth.  Mids are slightly forward which makes guitars and vocals sound lush. The main difference for me is the timbre, the GR06 are more accurate so rock sounds great to me on these.  I guess it's all down to preference and genre, I imagine how the MP's could sound better at some things.  For the price...just get both beerchug.gif

It's so sorry but i couldn't get the 06's. So i ordered 04's from Ebay. Now i'm waiting for them to come and hope that there is not much difference between them indeed.

Cool, make sure you leave your impressions here!

How secure is the GR06 when used in the gym or while jogging? Since it is only $50 (look at me, $50 is nothing now! Thanks Head-fi :/) I am very intrigued by this. And that abundant replacement tips.

If you use the ear hooks than they can be used at the gym and for jogging, but without the ear hooks NO CHANCE!!

Finally i received my Vsonics. I wanted 06 but had some problems with payment so had to order 04 pro updated (for 50$, not flagship).

 

So let's start my first product review.

First - before burning in - the sound is just awful. After more than 50 hours of burn with Tara labs burn in disk i couldn't recognize my IEMs. 

So first about the sound.

Bass is strong. It's not much of it by default, but rockbox equalizer makes a miracle in the range of 80 hz - they give just earthquacking bass. And it's quiet fast and doesn't harm any other frequencies. And they can give much more than Sennheiser cx270 in comparison. Also i had a possibility to compare with Brainwavz m3 - anyway last are better. Bass it just right on it's place. All the time i can hear not just "boom" but i hear the kick and the bass guitar very clear and separately. But m3 are twice more expencive. So 04 pro i consider as great for 50$.

Mid. When i listen to quiet songs of Rammstein - his rough voice sounds so close and clear and just like vocalist stands right in front of me. It's just awesome. Details are good too. I heared many things that i never heared before even in songs which i listen more than 5 or 6 years. Sometimes listening the same song later with loudspeakers i hear that details (like qiuet and deep backing vocals or some small details) but i never heared them before! Here i honestly can't say that Brainwavz M3 are noticeably better.

Highs. There are not much of them at all. But they seemed to be detailed enough (again we must remember IEM's price). I can even hear difference between different albums mastering. At some albums all is clear and good and in others i can notice badly recorded percussions. Sometimes even hats can be clear and nice but crashes and splashes sound like a shower. So i have to choose what to listen now LOL! If to compare with M3's highs 04's high's detalisation is noticeably lower. But i'll say again - it's almost twise cheeper.

Now let's talk about construction and fit. 

Cable is good, strong and thick. But it has a great memory. It still has the folds at the places where it was folded at factory on it, but i use it about a month. Second about cable - it's copper wrapping under the isolation. It's slicing to layers at folds places so that i can see signal wires under it (ill give pics some later). But in general - i think it's rather good than bad. 

And about disapointments. First is 3,5 mm to 6,35 jack. They would better not to place it in pakage. It looks very cheep and not durable and plastic between contacts is not accurate at all.

Second disappoint was when i tried boxed tips. There is just 4 pairs of HARD rubber tips and one foams pair. Rubber tips are not comfortable for me at all it was just pain in my ears. When i tried to put foams on - i did it. But when i tried to take them off - i did it too just the inside tubes still were on the soundguides.

I tried Brainwavz M3's box tips and they are much better. The large pair sounds great but it's too large just for a bit. And the M size fits perfect now i shall wait when my frind will bring me this pair. So i use the large one for a while.

 

So verdict is

1. Good and detailed sound with a little excess of mids but equalizer changes it till almost neutral without any notisable changes in sound quality or detalisation

2. Cheep complectation

3. Good enough fit with a little complications with getting better tips

 

So i can recommend them to anyone who is bedinnig audiophile or just wants to get a good sound for a good money and has a possibility to get a pair of good tips (or has the iron ears LOL) or to buy a more expencive version with a lots of tips. I heared something about revision 1 and revision 2 but i'm not sure.

 

I hope it's informative enough for users and will help someone to choose.

P.S. Sorry for grammatics. English is not my native language.

Can you post your review(s) and impressions here? :) I would really appreciate it. I've read all the other ones and I'm just about to shell out some money for the GR01's :D

If anyone is interested in transforming the GR06 to a much better sounding in-ear I suggest using this:

 

J River Media Center: Headphones; Pronounced, Effects; Concert Hall +1 and Surround Field Subtle or Medium, Parametric Equalizer; Gain -6. And last but not least the plugin TB EZQ. The gain in clarity and treble detail with TB EZQ is just amazing. If you switch of this thing after using it for an hour it sounds like a muffled mess that you are surprise you used to find  pleasing at all.

Angelusmorti nice review.

If you are interrested I heve Al line of Vsonic products in my location)

post #149 of 160
Hi If compare to Sony MDR EX600 which one for me between GR06 & GR07 I want more high sweet sound from it. I ask this because GR07 is twice the price from GR06. I have quit small budget. Thanks
post #150 of 160

Sorry for reopening an old thread but now that the GR04 Pro Flagship sells for $53 and GR06 sells for $63 via lendmeurears, which do you think would have a better value? And what are the main difference between the two of them, since some reviews say GR04 is better and others in this thread say GR06?
