If my gr07be's are dynamic drivers, then I agree!

 

I do know that they have biocellulose drivers, whatever those are!

With the Cardas wire, the sound had better bass and highs, matched very well with the Somic drivers. Also, changed from single entry to double entry, that made a huge difference. The original cable was very fine, the Cardas wire is 24 gauge! No more mods needed here, the Somic's sound fantastic!

 

 

 

Correct me if I'm wrong, but it seems like the cable might have cost you more than the rest of the rig combined. Very cool. I'd love to do something similar for the lawlz.

I thought that I should maybe find out what those are lol. This link looks like it has potential...

http://www.head-fi.org/t/568694/biocellulose-and-its-use-in-headphones-earphones-referring-the-recent-iem-example-vsonic-gr-07-r07

 

Huh! Interesting:

 

Quote:

It is stated by some users at head-fi that the sound characteristics of GR-07 sits in between the dynamic and armature drivers. Some people also stated at head-fi that they thought they were listening to an armature driven iem!

 

I also have to say that the review by the respected iem reviewer ClieOS is great to understand the nature of these iems: (http://www.head-fi.org/t/536342/review-vsonic-gr07-labor-of-love).

 

Some parts from the scientific papers also supports that, biocellulose diaphragms can produce very wide range of frequencies very successfully (you can read the parts on the below).

 

Also interesting from ClieOS's review:

 

Quote:
One of the main features of GR07 is the diaphragm. It is a fusion of over hundred of individual bio-cellulose layer, each measured less than 0.001μM. Bio-cellulose diaphragm made its first debut on the portable world with Sony MDR-E888, a flagship earbuds of the company in late 90s. Though not in any direct mentioning in the ads material, it was once mentioned that the GR07’s diaphragm was licensed from Sony -  if such is the case, then the only conclusion I would draw is that the bio-cellulose diaphragm has certainly improved since the E888 era. To fully loosen up the diaphragm, the IEM was burnt-in for well over 120hrs (and it was recommended by VSONIC that GR07 should receive at least 100hrs of burn-in before review). Though nothing very dramatic, I do find the treble being slightly smoothed and extended out while the whole dynamic of the IEM improved.

 

I have a bit more burnin' in to do!

 

Sorry for taking this OT. I'll go back to my corner now :)

Mmmh, yummy ~~ 


Sort of want to try the CKN70s and all the goodies on this thread...probably why I attempted to avoid it for so long rolleyes.gif The budget-fi bug has bitten and HE-6 future is not looking good at the moment, sigh.

 

Vague question but, what is something that people here feel one must absolutely, unequivocally, try out in their lifetime? FXZ100/200/CKS1000/S500, all those have been cleared. Looking for more stuff to experiment with.

I would say the HA-S500 is a good start simply because of all the mods and potential they have. The CKN70 also just because it is the new benchmark for micro hd carbon nanotube iems.

I should know better by now :(

Dsnuts should really be in marketing if he isn't already :D

 

Actually maybe I should buy two...for <$70+shipping/import fees it's a crazy good deal. Shame on me for springing for CK100PROs and leaving out so many AT gems.

No i meant to say that i like micro driver/ CNT drivers a lot more than the traditional dynamic iems sound wise, i dunno dynamics just sounds kinda boring to me, while these newer micro drivers is more fun/ engaging, albeit more "artificial" sounding. Maybe i like that artificial sound mo'???

Hey i just learned that cdjapan sells these CKN 70s for like $70 with many prices for shipping, cheapest is $7 snail mail. That is cheaper than tenso and amazon jpn, but sadly their ATH ES700 is $150, BOOOOOOOO!!!

 

Just got a set of black CKN 70s from a fellow head-fier, so it's gonna be an interesting showdown between my FXZ200s. Can't wait for that amp to get it, though my trader seems to have yet shipped it. frown.gif

I crashed your party wat.

Holy just looked at Master Troll's gear list...I honestly though you just listened through Beats/XB500s or something :P

THAT's where you got all those posts from...

 

Think of it another way, it's ONLY $150 wink.gif

Looking forward to comparison better not have dusty gifs in them though. Almost got the FXZ200 but they had the CK100PROs next to each other in store and those were just gawdly.

Pissssh, some ol' dusty gif. YES CRUSH IT REAL FLAT, JUST LIKE CARDBOARD, YAYYYYY!!! That's how we party around herrr.

 

Oh you meant to say my for sale list. haha All hype sh!Ts meng, you can't hang with this. cool.gif I was like when did i do a gear list, maybe if you been on soompi Khiphop thread then yeah.

 

Meng $150 gears is a huge leap for my cheap @ss. You see all that budget gears i used to own, probably all added up to no more than $200 haha

 

Damn Twinksta, you Balla', hook me with a set of silver 70s since you probably don't know how to enjoy budget stuff.  It's gonna be wasted on those expensive ears of yours. biggrin.gif

 

edit: oh forgot to say how honored i am that you think i have such sophisticated taste in audio gear, it doesn't get better than beats meng, Someday i will be able to live out my hip hop fantasies but for now, i am a just lowly head-fier with uncool jpnese made junk. tongue_smile.gif

Horrible, just horrible.

 

What Soompi thread? wink.gif

Gotta compartmentalize master troll, buy smart. Though who am I to say I think I just talked myself into buying two of the same IEMs. $70 IEMs.

 

Definitely will be listening to KO with these that's for sure. Whatchu talking about I had $30 budget-fi when you were still in diapers...oh wait that wasn't long :P

 

Slowly lurks back into rap thread...

KO is gonna sound godly with those 70s i am sure, welp he pretty much sound spectacular in just almost everything, in fact the cheaper the gear the better he sounds. And that my friend is the power that KO embodies. 

700

 

 

Hey meng, it's always good to hoard real cheap goodies such as these CKN 70s, cuz it's the CHinese way. haha Or even better you can hook me up with a set, i am sure i wouldn't mind much. wink_face.gif I mean whatcha gonna do with 2 sets you knonwhatimeng, use them HA! biggrin.gif

 

That reminds me i should really contact the mods to see if i can get that old one unlocked, tbh. It just doesn't feel like home for some reason. LoL

Bring back the old sweetness ~~ 3.0 doesn't even have the Rap Sucks in the title (took it off for obvious reasons oc, but just not homey). Wait didn't you say you were secretly Currawong?

I know right? Cranked out the 1-driver-functional RE0, KO sounds like sex personified. Then borrowed a HD800 and just not as good you know? wink.gif

 

Need something <100, one bassy/fun/dynamic and one analytical. For gym use so I can be like KO. Can't believe I didn't read up on the CKN70s sooner...

 

Oh, I'll hook you up...if you catch my drift. Hehe. Hehehehe.
