Yes, it does hsve the rotating nozzle.

 

Okay. I'm sold.. will get it when my wallet recovers from the iPhone 5 fiasco... :)

IMO what you actually need is the GR04 Flagship edition and not the 06. The gr04 is still slightly mid-forward compared to the gr07 but not as much as the gr06, it's also not as warm as it. So IMO the gr04 flagship is closer to the gr07 even though it has a little more upfront vocals and its extension is a little behind that of gr07. Oh, and yes - it also has articulating nozzles

The JVC FXD70 have much better clarity and detail. GR06 sounds muffled in comparison. FXD70 sounds a bit like GR06 with proper EQ plus some refinement.

I have not heard anything sound this good for 60$. Ever.

Hi,

 

My soundmagic e30 just died because of my mother (who sneaks into my room while I am sleeping and put to the washing machine my pants with my e30 and clip+ in it...but the clip+ still work ! ).

So, my right speakers has like 30% less bass than before and that sucks enough to get a new iem.

I was thinking about the gr06 or the e30 that I really loved and I would to get some advice.

Are the gr06 worths the extra 15 euro and do they sound like the e30 ? Thanks for the response ! (btw, this is my first post here)

May i suggest GR04 flagship? It's like GR06 but less mid centric, and it has 50 ohm impedance.

I do not own GR06 but from what i've read around here the overall SQ of GR04 is above GR06 because it has less emphasis on the mids and as a result it is more versatile.. Also, it costs less since it's being discontinued and it's not as popular as GR06 due to the stupid naming scheme.

The GR06 has big fat mid bass and very polite treble. I don't find the mids that forward.

They are excellent for drums though.

Well, I think the gr04 flagship will be more to your liking - its bass is a little bit tighter than that of gr06 and the mids are slighly less forward and more neutral like the ones of the e30. And yeah, it's a worthy upgrade of the e30.

I just browsed some info about the gr04 and that seems ok but I have seen that it is really better with an amp. 

Will it be good enough without an amp or it is really necessary ?

Out of a my portable (J3) without any EQ or Sound Enhancements of course it sounds mid-bass bloated. But when driven by a decent source (E17 or Nationite N2), the bass bloat noticeably lessens.

Coming from a lower level IEM you will probably notice a nice sound quality improvement even without an amp IMHO

post #281 of 375

Ok, I will probably take the gr04.

Thanks for the help !

so is it necessary? no.  much like an amp isnt necessary or upgrading to a  better DAP isnt necessary.  its a nice low cost way to upgrade things.

 

Are these examples of what you're referring to?

I just ordered a GR06 from Headphone Bar ($70 shipped) as the last link in the Ipod Nano + Fiio L9 + Fiio E6 chain, which should make a nice and compact workout rig, but if these impedance adapters are as small as they look I might pick one up for general use. Also, showing my noob a little, where in the chain would the adapter fit? Between the Nano and L9? The L9 and E6? E6 and IEM?

 the first one

 

you add it to the end of the GR06 cable then plug it into the amp output.

I have found that an extended burn in (200ish hrs) has tamed the lumpy bass somewhat. Trenemoller is good for burn in.

 

Still a bit too polite for me, and lacking long term comfort, but for the money, they are truly brilliant.

Got mine in yesterday, and holy tips Batman. Anyone have a convenient guide describing the difference between the tips? There are a lot of them, some awfully similar in size.
