Almost time to cash that Vsonic check lol. Only need to wait till frogbeats have it back in stock.


This is what I want to know too. And are they fast? How do they hold up when listening to rock songs, how well does the GR06 holds it composure during busy tracks?

Yeah bit unlucky with timing really, they used to be £32 @ Frogbeats but supply and demand and all that!
Rock is really their 'thing', as said vocals and guitars sound lush and full, they hold up great when it gets busy....they have better seperation than the PA's so it's easier to pick out instruments and the soundtage is more '3D'.

I would really appreciate it though !

Yeah I could be up for that, was interested in the crystals a while back. PM me and we can go from there.

CABLE CINCH DIY

 

small size cable tie.  attatch to desired size.  remove excess.  i can assure you this works just as well as any other tie i have had.

 

 

I use the guides for training in both triathlon and muay thai.   I would say they are more stable with them.  Very comfy phones for such a use with the right tips.

 

Simple and brilliant.

Last question about these. You already mentioned the bass, which goes deeper than the PA's. What do you think of the treble compared to the PA's? Better? Similar? I do remember Joker saying it was the weaker aspect of the PA's and could use some more sparkle.

 

Wow, imo the PA's already have great separation and soundstage. If these GR06 are even better, damn. Frogbeats better hurry up! But it seems most of their stuff are out of stock :/ Maybe I should look elsewhere, on eBay or something, but that would take much longer to arrive.

A/B testing these now and I must admit my original opinion of the bass based on memory is not correct.

Sorry for causing any confusion, brains been muddled from listening to GR07 constantly tongue.gif

Tiger, be aware that the signatures are quite different. The PA's are more balanced and the GR06 is mid centric, if your mainly a rock man you'll be happy but for EDM DnB etc I think the PA's are probably better suited.

Treble is better, not sure extention is any better but the way it's presented is. Retrieval and layering is excellent, I heard things in tracks I hadn't heard on the PA's.....it's not that they weren't there before it's just easier to pick out on the GR06.

Yeah speration is definately better, the overall soundstage impression isn't that much different but this is due to the forward mids, layering is better and this gives the added air.

I listen to a lot of different genre's, I actually only have a couple of rock albums on my player, not much at all. But most of the time I put my player on shuffle and hated it how the Xears Resonance couldn't handle those songs. So it started from there that everytime I buy a new IEM I had to ask the same questions. Maybe i'll take your other suggestion and go straight for the GR07. I'll think about it. Thanks NF for your impressions, I really appreciate it.

Good idea. I just used the twist tie that was wrapped around the GR06. Probably not as stable as a cable tie, but it seems to be doing the job.

lendmeurears.com have the GR06 in stock and they are cheaper than frogbeats I think.

Most places will raise the prices as its going up in China so might reflect everywhere.

Cheapest I found for is £40 on eBay from HK seller.

Will take 10 days to come but no other choice sadly for me.

another question about these...

 

I don't know if there is a technical term for it, but do these earphones have noise when connected & nothing is playing?

The technical term is "hiss", and it also depends on your source... but generally, Earphone with high Sensitivity will hiss more...

I don't know about GR06 though... maybe someone who own it can help you
