VSONIC V7007 (former "GR08") - Info & expectations thread - Page 30

post #436 of 920

Well, yes, <$40 MSRP is pretty darn affordable. Detachable cables at this price point is just astounding. They look like they accept the standard CIEM 0.78mm pins as well. Also, a 3mm driver is certainly a feat. I do wonder how they'll perform, but it's pretty cool that they've managed to shrink the dynamic driver down to balanced armature sizes. I'm normally fairly critical of Chinese headphone companies, but VSONIC seems to push the boundaries of portable audio time and again, whether it's at the low end or the high end. I'll be watching these closely.

From adjustable nozzles to shrinking drivers, it's not to be a fanboy of the company lol. I still love my GR07 mki and anxiously anticipating how the GR08 will perform.

Love the detachable cables on those. They look great! And on something with such a low price... Vsonic seem to be uping their game all the time.

That VC02 looks nice. I just pre-ordered a pair from mistertao as I has some money in my account there. Probably lendmeurears will also announce it next Tuesday.

I was going to reshell my UM3x or get a 1964 v3, however, depending on the price, these may be a really viable option! I don't think I can wait until next year though, they better release some valuable information and send out some demos to reviewers.

For those here that showed interest in the new VC02 model, I created a new dedicated thread for them: http://www.head-fi.org/t/635372/vsonic-vc02-info-appreciation-thread

Has anybody ever heard the GR01s?

Hmmm, did you search that? There are a few threads about the GR01 here at HF, including a review thread by |joker|...

I did right after my post, so sorry for my obvious laziness.

They were too expensive for a TWFK design, it's unlikely they could sound much different than the Ultimate Ears UE700, Rockit R-50, Audio Technica CK10 etc. apart from some differences in FR.

That was basically what Joker said, warm, but typical TWFK

CK10 is more expensive than the GR01.

 

TWFK's carry a basic sound (bass levels are about the same, small dip at 2-4k and spike at 9,10 or 11k) but they can still sound quite different. R50 for example is more balanced and warm than the B2/MKII, having less of a midrange dip and a much smaller spike in the higher treble.

CK10 is a little bit more expensive than the R01 and it's most likely the best TWFK IEM.

 

Even with different filters, impedance, capacitance, resistance, equalizers whatever they all still sound more similar than different, there are no dynamic driver IEM's which sound like them.

 

 

The RE272 comes to mind which is quite close in speed and tone, which is why a lot of people compared it to the ER-4 on release.

post #450 of 920

I think it's likely between the R50, CK10 and R01 as the best TWFK. The CK10 has the worst nozzle you can have no a TWFK though, finding the right tip is a pain (because it has to be long and yet fit) and getting it to stay gets worse in the long run.
