I'm Done (Vsonic GR02 Bass Edition) VS GR06 - Page 27

post #391 of 401

I wonder if anyone had similar problem with gr02 BE? I hope it's first and last time I'll send them for replacement because I can't afford sending headphones to Singapore.

Hi, could anyone help me with gr02 purchase.

I own a pair, which i bought from bigbargainonline;

http://www.ebay.com/itm/VSONIC-GR02-Pro-R02proII-Silver-Cord-Inner-Ear-Earphones-/380368381222?pt=US_Headphones&hash=item588fb8e526

And I like them a lot. I wanted to buy another 2 (one for me, and another for my friend) and when I checked ebay, there were another trusted seller - lendmeurear: http://www.ebay.com/itm/Vsonic-GR02-Bass-/321362767531?pt=US_Headphones&hash=item4ad2b6aeab

 

Shipping cost included, buying from him would be 14$ cheaper. So I wanted to know if there is any difference between the 2. I'm really confused with all those 'editions' gr02 model seems to have. Could anyone confirm that the 2 mentioned items are basically the same, or explain what's the difference between them? I asked the seller, he haven't replied yet.

Basically what I need to know is:

Do they sound identical?  What's the form of the plug of lendmeurear's set square or 'hockey stick'?

Thank you.

Lendmeurears is an authorized vsonic reseller, so it's fine. Most of the vsonics I had were from LMUW with the exception of a couple from bigbargainonline. R02ProII is the old version while the Gr02 Bass is the newer updated version. As far as the plug goes, I think that aside from the first batches of the Gr02 Bass edition it comes with L-plug and not a hockey stick lol

Understood. Thank you for the clarification.

is it worth purchasing a cmoy amp for these?

post #396 of 401

One of the ears of my gr02s stopped working when they went into the washing machine by accident like a month ago but I still kept them lying around. Just checked them today and both the ear piece are working fine now 0_o and the sound is just as good!

If i would like to upgrade my GR02 Bass Edition, should i take VSD3S or VSD3? LMUE said that VSD3S has more bass but i wonder how bass it is compared to GR02 BE. I love VSD3S color in red-blue pair. Actually i wanna do some testing before buying one but not sure if they are available in Indonesia yet.

not even a single relation. ckm500 is extremely low on deep bass (~31hz). it has a vertical soundstage which lacks depth (mid layering). it's treble is harsh and low on resolution. vocal & mid & bass seperation, i mean the main frequency seperations aren't shining either. if anyone seeking for upgrade to ckm500 without changing any of the above said parameters, should look for ostry products.

creative ep series are one of the most basic series in the market. they're definitely not trash but they're cheap sounding items compared to vsonic. they're on a different league for sure. creative's might provide some bass power and clean sound but that's it. frequency seperation is the main feature of vsonic products. after that of course gr02 has even more deep bass and more treble resolution. definitely an upgrade.

man it's so weird. vsd3 was my first item from vsonic. i returned it to the seller for connector fault. then i saw gr02 in discount with $25 price in lmue, i couldn't help it & bought. given the "bass edition" name and small size, i was expecting something like xiaomi piston. i plugged them to my ear and the first shock was the vocal seperation. they were just the same with the vsd3. and bass... the deep bass (~30-60hz) which i care the most was existing with the same or maybe more amount. the mid layers was horizontally placed, making the soundstage deeper which was correcting the most annoying thing for me in the vsd3. the treble also came to me more sweet than vsd3. more relaxed, more involving with the other frequencies while not ruining them. i tried so hard to find a fault in these but i couldn't. 

 

i care the bass and while it's bass still not as powerful as koss products, i think it's doing fine overall. i like them more than vsd3 for sure. after trying 19 earphones in last 6 months. it's feels good to finally find something that worth the time & money wasted. they're sitting on my desk right now, i can hear them calling my name... it's hard to resist. i think i'm falling in love with these. i don't know why this is happening maybe it's because of all other disappointments. i need more time to compare with koss and i'll give a chance to my upcoming vsd3s to make the conclusion about vsd3 soundstage, but i wanted to share my early thoughts. nice product, very nice...

when i was using the vsd3, i was feeling that highs aren't involving enough with the both vocals. on gr02, i feel they're involving enough with the female vocals, but the relation with the males are still the same with vsd3. i don't know if we're talking about the same thing but i wanted to state this.

Gr02be is more aggressive in the lower treble, while the vsd3s still packing good amount of energy in this region is smoother and more ethereal sounding, so female vocals can sound a bit more exciting with gr02be but they are also thinner and more fatiguing. Also, vsd3s has better bass impact and punch and the more prominent mid-bass helps with the presence of male vocals. In comparison gr02 is more sub-bassy and I found myself enjoying male vocals only with de-cored shure olives. With silicone tips it was a nit too V-shaped and grainy for my taste.
