I think you'll like the 02's as well. Just take a little of the Bass off but tighten it up some( More in the line of the 06s but more depth) and add a wider soundstage then the GR99. The micro detail is also better on the 02's but it has the same pleasing sound of the 99s. I have no idea why people aren't snatching these up?, Just amazing value. Even tho the GR99 went up to $39.99 it's well worth it imo. I'm listening to Camel-The Snow Goose--Holy Cow!!! Amazing!!!
I received the GR02 (Bass Edition). Holy Cow!!! Amazing!!!
You were right. They are so much better, to my ears, than the GR06 and the GR99.
I only paid $20 + shipping. It seems like I'm listening to something much, much more expensive.
Everything is so clear...highs, mids and lows. When I listen to the the GR06s its like a muddy veil is placed between me and the music. With the GR99s, that veil is lifted, but something is not quite right - the balance is off somehow. With the GR02 its like everything is fine tuned and harmony is achieved.
Yes, the GR99 is worth it at $39.99. The GR06 are priced correctly at $60...its not their fault that the GR99s are better. The GR02s are a steal at $20. Twenty dollars, for crying out loud...that is what JVC marshmallows go for.
