This is good news, because despite your view of it being "average at everything", I actually think it is quite good at everything. Yes, there are more exciting IEM's about, but you can pretty much attach the GR07 to any source and throw any genre of music at it and it does a pretty good job. The more time you spend with it, the better you will appreciate it, or at least that is my experience of it anyway wink.gif

It has really good synergy with some setups too. I know you have better kit available to you,. but it loves the Colorfly C3 as a source cool.gif

It loves Lite DAC-AH as a source.

 

This is basically like a Hifiman HM-601/602, just a lot higher rez  http://www.ebay.com/itm/Hi-End-Audio-DAC-8pcs-TDA-1543-Chip-24Bit-96kHz-DAC-/120709626296

I finally received the Jays foam tips today.  Definitely the best tip for the GR07 with the MH1c tip a close second.  The Jays foam lets all the treble goodness through, due to wider opening, yet absorbs any resonance/ringing.  The MH1c tips attentuate the treble just bit, due to the smaller bore and have a bit better bass punch, as I find silicone in general has better bass punch than foam.  Thanks for the Jays foam suggestion putente!

You're welcome! I'm really glad you enjoy them!

Great to hear the foam tips work well. How would you say they compare to the stock conical single flanges in terms of comfort and isolation?  Also, what size foams would fit someone who uses the stock single-flange tips?  Thanks!

I used the largest stock single flanges for a while and bought the large Jays foams. Comfort is top notch and isolation seams to be a bit better.

Btw- How long does a pair of the foams last?

I see.  Putente, what size stock single flanges / foams have you used?  Wondering what size I would need to order.  The large stock single flanges are too big for my ears, the stock medium (there's only two sizes AFAIK) single flanges fit just about perfectly.  The medium Shure olives were the right size for my ears so the medium Jays foams are probably what I'd need.

Good question. In the last 6 to 9 months, I'd say the Jays Foams were the tips I used most often with the GR07, but I'm always testing other foam tips, so I didn't use them during all that time. But I'm still on my first pair, and although they start to show some signs of wear, they're still usable! The only problem I had so far was that one of the tips started to decore, as I taken them off and put them on so many times. But a small pinch of superglue did the job, and they're still usable! I just use my GR07 at home, and with moderate use, as I have other IEMs. But I'd say the Jays Foams are a lot more durable than the Ts400's I also have. The Comply's sound almost as good as the Jays and they're more comfortable to wear, but they don't last as long for sure...

I think the Jays Foams only have one unique size! At least, when I bought mine a while back, there was no size option and my package says "One Size"! I can help much with other silicone tips, as I've simply never used them. I'm a foam tip guy! But I can tell you I used the stock foam tips that came with the GR07 package without problems. It's just that those tips aren't very good for foams, as they're too rigid...

Ah, you're right- on size fits all. I didn't order large. Anyway I'd say they are M/L to large in size but nice and soft.  Also Jays packaging politely reminds us not to eat them.

You guys are right - I was looking at the Jays silicon tips, which come in 5(!) different sizes.  Might have to give these foams a go.

Jays foam will definitely last much longer than comply. I was using one pair for almost a year and it still looked fine and worked great.

After a/b'ing the GR07 mkII with the RE0 I have to say that I think RE0 is a better iem. The bass is much more linear with not too much sub bass roll off,, although it's not as extended as the GR07's. There is less of a dip in the mids and the treble has less peaks and is generally more smooth. I found some tips that I used with the ASG-1, and it has helped increase the treble a bit, as it can seem much more rolled off with narrow tips.

 

Will definitely be selling the GR07 soon. It's hard to believe the RE0 is only $50 now.

ugh. I need to get off head-fi.

One question. is the subbass quantity on the re0 greater or less than the gr07 mkII?

All bass is much less on the RE0, sub-bass included. I'd say about 6-8dB less. Sub-bass is also less emphasized than mid-bass on the RE0, but having less mid-bass than the GR07 allows vocals and some bass notes to sound more tonally accurate imo.
