^ Oh there are ALWAYS weaknesses, cuz THIS IS HEAD-FI!!!
It's not just the GR07. It's that this new crop of sub $200 iems serve as a serious sanity check for people who own these uber iems. The difference in SQ is not nearly worth the price. It's like the hypercar market where you pay an extra $100k for that extra 0.3s off your 0-60 times.
ikr, that's my personal limit for cans and iems cuz i just can't justify paying THAT much due to my ****ty sources and the music i listen to. : P
^ Great stuff meng, but dat part has me craving for some fried CHICKEN boi!!!
Yeah exactly right eke
Chasing that last 10 - 20 percent of sound is an addicting adventure that will hit your wallet hard
Its just most audiophiles will find flaws in SQs and will spend lots of money trying to rectify those flaws without regards to money spent
Those flaws will be constantly nagging them and irriating them until the point of purchasing a new IEM
Not to mention the taste of something even better is tantalizing, thats just human nature
Trick is to find the right signature that you can enjoy music with without blowing through your paycheck
All in all,
None of you audiophiles should take up hard drugs LOL
Like i said X2, THIS IS HEAD-FI!!!
LMAO on the 'alcohol consumption' thing. We should ask one of the guys from the Sound Science forum to prove this statement, but proven or not, I approve of this.
Oh lol. I guess I forgot what I wrote there. I'm seeing the GR07 Mk2 at about $215 here. However, I'm seeing a sort of "bass edition" and a "classic edition" for half the price. It's getting confusing. But what you said on its "2D-esque presentation" tipped me off. I think I'll resolve to get the DN-1k instead. But what of my amp now?
I guess like you said, audio is "like a curse and a blessing all at once." Those are really good words of wisdom, Masa' Walsa.
LoL i am not worthy of dat Masa' title i am just lowly Alfred. Masa' WAYNE would have my head if i get all uppity.
Yeah for some reason the VSonic gr07 is more expensive in China than what international resalers are selling them for. If you do go for the MKII, the newly released "Classic" edition for like $100 might sound the same but there still no solid answer on it yet. So the gr07 BE (Bass Edition) is more "worth" it if you do decide to get them since i am not sure if VSonic will make anymore of them due to it being discontinued just as the MKIIs are cuz the "Classic" version is replacing them both.
But yeah it is best to do more research and know what type of sound signature goes best with the music you listen to the most, and that is why this Discovery Thread was such an invaluable resource for noobs like me cuz trying all those cheapo hyped gears taught me a great deal. I can only imagine more seasoned vets laughing at us cheapo peons with our hyped FOTM gears but it REALLY helped me to grasp what i am looking for. Plus it's crazy fun hopping on the hype train no doubt about that. haha
