I also agree with this.
And actually, when I boosted the lower frequencies I found the sound exquisite. But my standard is if I'm spending so much on an iem, I don't expect to be EQing it.
On a side note.
Are you sure these gr07's (mk ii) are incredible in their versatility. Kiteki says they're the perfect average. I think he's right in the sense that they are just shy of exciting simply because they don't put emphasis/focus on any particular part of the frequency range. If the music you're listening to has mids, mids it is. If it's basslines, bass it is. If it's treble, treble it is.
Although I must say I wasn't expecting it to make bass so pleasant. Makes me wonder why I would ever want a bass heavy iem.
I think this is what a neutral iem should sound like. An upgrade to this would simply improve soundstage, separation, detail, layering, and higher highs while maintaining the overall balance.
Hopefully, I still don't have residual new toy syndrome. It's been a week now.
atomik, do you already have the gr07?
