Going back to topic, and I can listen to music on it, with headphones!  beerchug.gif

I just won a Kindle Fire HD and read it has a Wolfson audio chip or something or other - does anyone know if this is a superior way to listen to tunes?

So I've received my GR07 bass + GR06 bundle last sat and been burning them in since.

 

First thing I've noticed is that these GR07 don't need much burning in, I can't hear much changes after 30+ hrs on the burner.

 

The GR07 and CKN70 are VERY close !   ...GR07 has got slightly more details and slightly clearer across the spectrum, a very analytical sound to my ears.

CKN70 has got a slightly warmer mids compared to the GR07 which makes them more fun to listen to, treble on both are outstanding but the GR07 renders the high notes a little clearer, bass on both are on a very similar level.

 

Overall I would rate the GR07 Bass iem - as a side grade to the CKN70 with a very slight edge to the GR07.

 

Cords wise, GR07 Bass wins hands down !  ...in fact, they got one of the best if not the best cord of any iems I've come across !

 

Fit and comfort wise, the CKN70 is a little better with it's satelite ring to brace the iem against the ear, I found it a bit of a hassle putting the GR07 into my ears as it is akin to holding a square block with an earbud sticking out one side a cord the other and aligning it to my ear canals.

Hey ghost nice impressions, how does the GR07 Bass Editions compare to the FXZ200s???

 

WoW it is kinda interesting that you place them next to the CKN70s instead of the FXZ200 tbh.

 

O.O

You do know Vsonic themselves recommend 200 - 300 hours burn in for GR07? they actually have a label on their new packaging recommending so many hours break in time. From my past experience you won't hear any changes up until around 150 hours, there were times I thought I was wasting my time. be patent and keep burning them in, I am not even that much of a believer for IEM in general do burn in, but the bio cellulose drivers on GR07 have hundreds of layers, they need some long maintenance plan to sound their best. Take them up to 150 hours manually at least.

I am intrigued by the xba40's, but they are $180, and even though it might be an awesome price for them, it's too much for me right now (I think).

 

The xb90's have always intrigued me, and they are only $70, so that intrigues me further. But really, why would I get them when I have the gr07be's? One potential reason I guess is that I seem to like iem's that are not over-ear when using them out in public. So, I could the xb90's for that, and use the gr07be's the rest of the time. How's that for rationalizing?

 

Anyway, I ramble. Let me know if you have any words of widsom! Thanks.

 

Bro, I guess the both of us can retire blissfully from Head'fi now. biggrin.gif

 

AD900X for audio nirvana at home, WS99 for outdoors.

gr07be for clarity, xb90ex for bass rumbles...

 

...and no trolling from sfw, since he's lost and can't reach his computer at home.

How much of an upgrade are the CKN-70's over the CKM500's?

Yeah, I was following the gr07 thread before taking the plunge but I was surprised by how little changes were taking place initially as compared to carbon nanotube phones and even some non CNT phones.

 

I'll take your advise and keep them on the burn, if they do improve any further they'll pull ahead of the CKN70. SQ wise, the both of them are on par as it is now.

Will report back a week from now when they reach 250 hrs.

 

btw, the gr06 for the current price are quite good ! L3000.gif
