I will soon upgrade to Vsonic GR07 Bass Edition, and I don't know whether I should also buy the Fiio E12 or stick to my E6 amp.

 

What do you guys recommend?

I've actually used the BE right out of my Galaxy SIII and it sounds pretty excellent.  I had a Fiio E10 when I first got them but found it unnecessary personally, as they are pretty easy to drive.  Let us know how it sounds with and without the amp when you get them smily_headphones1.gif

Unfortunately, my Android is a Samsung Galaxy Ace model, and without proper amplification, it sounds totally flat and bland - this is why I bought the amp. I'm sure both GR06 and GR07 BE sund just great with the S III :)

Personally, I'd go for the higher end amplifier since you'll get a better quality output for your Bass Editions. But the E6 isn't bad either.

I found the e6 made my gr07 BE sound worse

Checked my order status and it arrived at my local post office this morning. Which is literally around the corner. At best I'll have it this evening when I get back from a bday party or at worse Monday if they don't send it out today. 3-5 days delivery is not bad in my books!
Can't wait to try these out!
Oh, and those new Vsonics are looking great! Hope they sound great too!

Ok- so out of the box impressions are extremely positive. I settled for the blue tips without the foam. Playing Bob Marley Pandora station (with Pandora One) on my iPhone 4S and vocals are in line with the treble instruments in terms of volume and the bass is present but not overwhelming. Playing Today's Hits Radio makes listening to pop/hip hop songs engaging. The Script Radio and Gun's N Roses Radio were enjoyable. I agree with statement that the GR07 BE is a great choice for all sorts of music genre. I think I made the right choice in the Bass Edition because I find the bass amount perfect for my taste. And I may be annoyed if the treble were any more.

 

DISCLAIMER: I'm a novice at describing what I hear into words. I have pretty good hearing, but audio vocabulary is weak. In support of throwing out terms, I will explain what I hear so that if I do use the wrong term, you know what I am talking about. Thanks.

 

Compared to my burned in VSD1, I can sense the VSD1 to be warmer/fuller in the mid bass region. The GR07 is airier- I can sense some space between me and the music. The GR07 is quicker, smoother, brighter. VSD1 isn't bad for its price, but the GR07 is more refined (just as it should be for its asking price).

 

The GR07 has perfect musical energy, where my XBA-4iP is too much in the upper and lower frequency and my PFE 132 (grey filter) is too vanilla (little rumble and crispness). The only thing they have on the GR07 is their mic and call/music controls.

 

I can sense the upper frequencies are ever so slightly rough- I think this is due to the driver being brand new.

 

I would be a happy camper if the only change of burn in is the smoothing out of the treble- even with the current amount of bass.

Glad you're enjoying them!  As far as 'burn-in/break-in' and your ear adjusting to the signature go, this is exactly what will happen.  You'll have to come back with your impressions after you've got at around 75-100 hours on them.

Well, what type of music do you primarily listen to?  I can honestly say that both are very similar, surprisingly similar in fact.  The BE has a slight bump in the bass region (as expected) so it sounds more fun, and is well suited for rock/electronic/etc. The MKII is more neutral overall, and the mids are slightly more present, making it more suitable for vocals/acoustic/etc.  Other than that, both are excellent all arounders and work well with every genre.  Make sure you give them the recommended 75+ hours of burn in/break in, but I doubt you'll be disappointed!

My first post!

 

I picked up the GR07 BE last week.  Enjoying it quite a bit.  I already own the GR06 and these are a nice step up.  There's a lot more texture and clarity.  Everything is separated quite nicely and the soundstage is a bit better.  The bass is emphasized, but it never takes away from the mids or the treble.  The sibilance is the one real weakness here, but otherwise it's sublime.  Oh, and the cable is hideous.
