Are the VSonic GR07s a suitable upgrade to my Senn ie6s?

post #1 of 18
Thread Starter 

I have a pair of Sennheiser ie6s, which are my only iems. My source is an iPod classic with a fiio e6 amp and a fiio line-out dock. I am looking for a pair of buds that have better detail, and have decent isolation. bass is important.

I listen to mostly rock, and electronic music.
Are the VSonic GR07 MK2 Pro's a suitable upgrade?

Here is the link to them on Amazon. http://www.amazon.com/Dynamic-Isolation-Earphones-Earbuds-multiple/dp/B005FDXZJU/ref=wl_it_dp_o_pC_S_nC?ie=UTF8&colid=1XNG8RZI0WRAT&coliid=I1LI9RSPRF6SPC


Thanks in advance for your help etysmile.gif

A few more notes for you to consider:

They have to be somewhat fun-sounding, for those techno tracks.
I listen to a lot of downtempo too, and the 'phones have to be detailed in every frequency.

The magic of the GR07 is that they are incredibly balanced and detailed in every frequency, like you require. However, for your genres, there are other options that may be better.

 

The TF10's will be more suited for rock and probably techno as well, as they are more dynamic and have a slightly V-shaped FR. They have a recessed midrange, but none of your genres have too much going on there anyways. Their one downside, is that many have trouble with fit. The CKM500 are another great option for you to look at.

I've heard that the tf10's cables break easily...  I can just turn on the bass boost on my amp, would that help the GR07?

would super glue stop the TF10's cables from breaking?

The thing is, even if the cable breaks, replacements can be found cheaply.

 

But yes, a bass boost may help the GR07 a little bit, though it also may push its bass into boomy territory.

Which has more detail: the gr07 or the TF10?

post #8 of 18

Having never hearing the TF10, I am unable to answer that question. I hope someone else who has heard both can drop in. You may want to try the GR07 appreciation thread for more help.

TF10 has more detail, especially micro detailing, you just don't hear every small nuance in tracks with GRO7. I have compared many times....too many times.

Depends on what detail you are talking about. Treble in tfp, as like in many good over-$100 BA is far more articulate and in your face than the GR07. Easier to pick up details but has a delicate and IMO inferior timbre. GR07's more balanced frequency response brings a some parts of the music that is being overshadowed in the tfp10 though. 

 

I do think for techno tfp10 is more fun-sounding, can't beat tfp in terms of PRAT.

Never heard the TF10s but if you ask me the GR07s are great for electronic music.  The bass hits hard enough and extends low enough for me when it needs to.

I listen to alternative rock more than I listen to electronica. I've heard the TF10's mids are recessed, but will this issue be resolved by using my fiio e6? Which ones do you think are more suited for alt. rock (Coldplay, Smashing Pumpkins, Frank Zappa, etc...)?

Are the tf10's that much better than my sennys so it would be worth upgrading?

Bump.

It might be safer to get the GR07s - the TF10s also have some pretty bad fit issues with most people.


There's also a new GR07 Bass Edition that'll be released at some point in the near future too...
