Which one do you guys think is better? GR07 mkII or the DBA-02 mkII? - Page 2

post #16 of 32

Hi all

 

just my two cents

 

Started using the dba-02 MKII and I´m pretty happy with them. My perfect isolation is achieved with the mid size foamies. With the also supplied and much talked about tri flanges I find the fit a bit uncomfortable (too much inside the ears)

 

Mind these do like amplification! they are 43 Ohm so that´s it! before amplifying running with my sony A-865 I was just thinking yes bass is lacking but as soon as I run them with amplification bass is just right. Also I find it´s a good match with this player.

Unfortunately I had to let the dba-02 mkII go. It offers great sound with emphasis on the mid, mid-treble and treble. Bass is tight and proper.  but I could not adapt myself to the cable fitting (I wear glasses all the time)

 

Overall I highly recommend it, If you find one you should grab it, it´s a great little piece!

how does the DBA-02 compare to the RE-ZERO in terms of SQ?

the low freq bass just drops off on the R-50s...

post #23 of 32

It actually doesnt, the difference between 80hz and 20hz on the R-50 is only about 5db. Ive seen the frequency response graph to prove it. The bass slowly tapers off, its really not bad at all.

 

The GR07's bass is tilted just a tad more towards the lower bass region. It will seem like it digs a little deeper. The difference between 80hz and 20hz on the GR07 is still about 3-4 though. So the bass on the GR07 still tapers off a little as well.

can someone tell me if the GR07 have the same amount of analytical sound as the re-zero?

post #25 of 32

I have never heard either one, but going from what i have read i must assume that the GR07 has more bass. People have called the RE0 bass light. I havent heard to many people call the GR07 bass light.

 

The GR01 and R-50 should sound more similar to the RE0.

GR07 is not at all analytical.. It's a neutral sound, with a just a tad little warmth. Bass extends low,with rumble.

but there is a slight roll off in the treble.

RE-0 is an analytical IEM. Re-zero isn't as so, as they bumped up the mid along with slightly added upper bass presence. Unless you're a basshead, I think re-zero is not an analytical IEM, more forward and balanced. I sold my hifimans before I had my GR07 so comparison will be from memory. I think the re-zero has more forward mid that is not as dry, while GR07's sound is weightier and a little bit warmer as well. Bass can be felt more with the GR07.

+1

 

Also, consider Ortofon EQ-5 or rockit-sounds R-50.. it's a nice midway between Analytical and neutral signatures.

both work well unamped,but If you want to juice up the bass on the R-50, get an E-11.
