You're right, dark and a bit peaky in the treble, messing up the tone recordings a bit, but it's inevitable trying to explain it. The GR07 MKII is one of the most balanced dynamics though, I'll give it that, perhaps the best dynamic along the EX1000. ER4S is missing bass a bit IMO as well, but beats the GR07 in everything else, orange knowles dampers will help the 4S' bass punch and extension. 

 

Started listening to these MKIIs today, provided by buddy DannyBai.

Electric guitars also have weak technical performance, full of THD+N.

 

 

oh ok. i get it now ..

...and the sound?

post #680 of 974

I just pulled these out of the box and they do sound ok but the bass is really loose and bleeding through everything else. There is a lot of distortion, could these tighten up after the burn in? Please tell me they do. 

post #681 of 974

These have among the least distortion of any IEMs, perhaps it's the recording.

 

The bass is boosted, but not too bad IMO. 

post #682 of 974

I am not sure that I am saying it right then. I put chevelle's comfortable liar.flac on and my sures play is nicely, then I used these and the sub bass just fell apart and the rest of the song just distorted. Does that make sense? With my se535s I can hear the bass drop fine and everything else is good too. It is like it looses control of the bass. I am hoping that it is because they are brand new.

post #683 of 974

GR07s have uber distortion performance.

 

The bass is bigger and a bit looser than the SE535s though, but it's distorting perhaps try a higher bitrate file.

The ER-4S, TF10, CK10, UE700 etc. have better highs or high-highs than the GR07 MK2 for sure, I just recall the tonal qualities of the ER-4, it's quite digital sounding. 

 

I think the GR07 MK2 is closer (but not quite) in the Sony MDR-EX1000 and ATH-CKW1000ANV league of dynamic driver IEM's in it's tonal quality.

 

I'm using the term tonal quality seperate from SPL / FR and technical performance.

 

For instance a flute has weak technical performance and very limited FR, it can still have a heavenly tone.

 

Oh, I actually ordered both Gr07 and ckw1000anv. But there is not much info about the audio technica.. Would u like tell me more about them? how do they compare?

post #685 of 974

I just want to say, the top dynamics are:

'EX1000, RE272 and GR07MKII. 

 

IE800 yet to be heard. 

post #686 of 974

The ex1000 is pretty good, except for listening at loud volume levels. Treble starts to pierce my ears at about 70db on some tracks. I usually listen at 80-90db.

Was a dealbreaker for me.

 

So you dont think the 1000anv belongs to one of the "top" dynamics? the price on them is top for sure^^

I agree with what you said, it's not a higher volume IEM, it's lack of isolation hints at that as well. For commuting the GR07MKII is the best without EQing. If open to EQing I think the RE272 is the best as all it needs is a small bass boost. These are the top 3 though.

No FX700?

post #689 of 974
Nope.

FX700 has bloated bass, sharp treble (though not too bad here) and recessed mids. It's timbre and soundstage are selling points bit it's not enough IMO. I would place them like 2 tiers below, may like the FXD70 more than it.

I haven't tried a IE80 with vents covered though and IE800.
post #690 of 974

From what I've seen, covering the 80 vent just reduces the low bass and not so much the midbass. So Inks, have you heard both the MK1 and MK2 GR07. I liked the MK1 but couldn't get that treble quite tamed enough withoiut triples which I prefer to not use. Is the Mk2 less peaky and maybe a little better with nuance in general? I suspect that the MK1 hot spot just hit my ears harder than most,
