VSonic GR07 Bass Edition Impressions - Page 116

post #1726 of 2271

I bought from LMUE before but it took 2 weeks to get it when it was supposed to be 1 week but it was ordered during the holiday season. I don't blame LMUE for that. It was a problem with either Singpost or Pos Malaysia.....most likely Pos Malaysia.

 

Anyway just got my GR07BE yesterday.....a lot better than my T-Peos H-100 even without burn-in except for soundstage and it doesn't have either the sub-bass or treble extension of the H-100.

Well burn-in shines them, as you listened just out of the box......

Is it normal for the GR07 to have some squish marks on them? I have a few on mine. Can the GR07 be recabled, just in case?

Why would you want to do that? to just a day old gr07.

 

The real challenge is prying up the seam carefully,opening up,de-solder the existing cables, solder the new cables and use a non-powerful adhesive to gently glue the plastic shells. basic solder knowledge is fair enough. Looks simple but even if you apply more heat on the driver joints it might fiddle with the voice coils or damage the lug....:(

My Bijou3 had a broken cable after just 1 year. So if that happens to GR07 in the future, it's good to know there is that option. I'm not planning to re-cable them now of course nor could I do it by myself. I was wondering if there are any companies doing it like they do for the TF10s.

One concern I have is that the driver is made out of biocellulose. Does that imply it will dry up in a few years and stop working, or degrade over time?

Hmm....There are only few who does the re-shelling for the dynamics as it's more of acoustics science than BAs......not sure, whether they just re-cable IEM alone, so may be you can give a shot there.if they do so, then there's intl S/H involved unless you find them in Malaysia or Singapore which might be cheaper. And cost for the cable you choose like silver,copper blah blah,3.5mm jack- Neutrik -straight/angled etc.. so you do the math.:wink:

Thanks Shawn. I just hope the cable lasts on these IEMs.

ur welcome! not a problem. I think these cables are built good if not like a tank and way better than the VSD1 series. Basic care/caution while handling is more than enough IMHO.

 

Believe me my M6,M9P,J3 Atomic,Muzx 606,PL13,PL21 which are all cheap sub $30 have their cable still going on....only my tf10 stock cable let me down last month,that too not a cable fault but the memory wire(flexible metal wire inside the plastic jacket) shorts the +ve and -ve of left channel.

My worry is the part connecting to the IEM itself. That's where the Bijou3 broke...putting excessive pressure when inserting them.

anyone know?

post #1737 of 2271

I don't think it will dry up because that implies the driver themselves has some moisture, which I don't think is the case. I don't know if it the biocellulose material can degrade over time. Hope some experts can shed some light on this.

Right because if htey do degrade over time then they wont last very long -- even if the build quality and all is solid, over time if the driver degrades then i dont get as much of my moneys worth out of this. Thus the durability ratings should probably be reduced (IF there is damage to the driver as time goes on)

When I had my GR07BE's, just to be sure, I spit in the drivers every night. Worked like a charm!

riiiigggt....that's so unhygienic. Better to soak them in water when not in use. :ksc75smile:
