You can try to contact VSONIC directly. They solved issues with faulty GR07's before, even out of the warranty period. You must be patient and persistent though, as they're known for not being very responsive to emails and it can take a while for them to answer...

Has anyone tried GR07 mkii with Cowon i9 player? Also how are GR07 for outdoors use (I don't listen to IEMs at home)?

The GR07 MKII isolate decently, have low microphonics and stay in your ear pretty well. They'll stay for walking, but probably not jogging. I find them suitable for outdoor use.

I have decided to buy a decent IEM and was planning to buy a re-262 until people started suggesting the GR07 for the music i listen. I mostly listen to bands like the Red Hot Chili Peppers, radiohead, arctic monkeys, U2, muse, coldplay, mutemath.

 

So now i need to decide if i'll buy the MKII or the BE. In the BE-thread people suggested the BE, but what will MKII owners suggest?

Sound is shorting out and no response from VSonic yet although it's only been 4 days I think or less since I emailed them.

RE0 graph is out on Rin's blog. Treble seems just as peaky if not more than the GR07. Distortion however is extremely low. Channel matching is excellent. I was on the fence about RE0's treble, and the dips start a bit lower than I predicted. I wonder if this is typical of the RE0 since most people seem to rave about the linear and extended highs, which I'm not hearing or seeing in Rin's graph either.

I'm curious to how it responds with different tips.  Rin states that it's most linear with stock single flanges.  I was never able to get any type of good seal with the stock single flanges.  The best seals came from the Sony Hybrid for me.

Just received my GR07 mkII, just 7 days from Singapore to Europe with weekends and new year included, so really fast. First impressions really good, sound is really good and comfort is 10/10, can't even feel them in my ears. Now there is much less bass compared to my old Klipsch image S3, but i guess S3 just has too much bass, i really have no idea how much bass there is supposed to be haha. Also didn't receive hardcase, i guess it's no longer included into complectation?

Yeah of course, but it already sounds extremely nice for me compared to my all previous cheap iems. 

 

I would like to know, can you break iems just by doing too much volume on DAP which is w/o amp? My cowon iaudio 9 gives a lot of power, so wonder if i can go up until max.

I received my GR07 MKII's and let me say they are PERFECT in every way for me....no matter what I throw at them.  Now to find a full sized headphone that is comparable to this signature and I'll be done.

On that note, does anyone know of a full-sized headphone that is like the GR07 MKII???   I'm having trouble finding any answers.

I heard the Denon D7000 shares a similar signature. Unfortunately they're discontinued now.

No, I think you'd do serious damage to your hearing before that happened. Just use them normally, I have amped GR07 MKII in the past and punished them fairly hard there was never a problem. even that after weeks and weeks off burn in at 3/4 volume. The main thing you want to avoid is distortion, and also look after you hearing!

But to answer your question full volume won't hurt them. (as long as there's no distortion) Pretty tough little drivers in there. cool.gif
