Point taken. Thanks, now I know to steer clear of FA. haha So, what in your opinion defines great sparkle? I've always equated it to quantity and extension, but I guess there's more to it.

Great sparkle, IMO, is the result of good extension and resolution without graininess or sibilance (*pesky peaks).

ClieOS, you dont like the top end on the Gr01? You dont think it has good sparkle and good extension?

I never say GR01 doesn't have good sparkle or extension. The discussion here, however, is about great sparkle and extension.

This is true. My HF3's treble beats the GR07's by a good deal.

It would be nice if we could have a comparison between ER4S and GR01. I think I may be a fan of super neutral, so-called "analytical, cold" sound; as I'm finding myself enjoying the GR-07 more with the bass gently attenuated; although I've been taking a hacksaw to the gr07's slightly invasive treble, by EQ.

The stock bis fits me perfectly in the left ear but its a bit loose in the right one. :/

Obviously it is a lemon and you should contact the seller for an exchange.

I have contacted them. But seeing as how lendmeurears has a reputation for being very, very slow, I'm not happy.

 

And I'll probably have to ship it to them, which will end up costing me double the original price of a GR02. Great.

Sounds like you need to try the GR01. I have never heard the GR07, but from everything i read the GR01 has less bass quantity, and a smoother treble, with little to no sibilance.

 

I find no fault at all with the sound of my GR01. I like them a whole lot. I dont consider the GR01 to be cold though, it is analytical and neutral, but i dont find it cold like the hf3. It has just a bit more bass and warmth than the hf3.

That's exactly the same impression I'm getting of those IEMs. I might end up selling my gr07 to buy an ER4S or GR01. Thanks :)

I just got GR02 bass editions and its a pretty nice sound with nice low end but the top end often seems subdued, almost muffled.  I prefer warm and hate fatiguing and piercing sibilance, so I do like the sound for the most part, but it's just sometimes they seem too held back in the highs, basically like a stereo with the treble all the way down. Using them with the double flange tips they came with they are ok and seal pretty good but not all that comfortable. I Have some air bud tips on the way to try out with them. Also I have to try not to move too much because there is a lot of noise when the cable scrapes or moves across my shirt.

Okay, I can't seem to figure out how to open up the GR02's pouch. Help, anyone? tongue.gif
