VSonic GR07 Bass Edition Impressions - Page 153

post #2281 of 2377

I was looking as well for a headphone with similar sound to GR07BE, but I found something better IMO - Fidelio L2. For me it sounds even better than GR07BE, so my search is over....for now. :D

GR07BE still my favorite IEM though.

GR07BE is a hall of famer.

I buy new stuff and have a lot of fun with it, prefer things about other sets of iems over the GR07BE, but every time I go back to them it's like "Ya, these are the schiit"

Hi everyone,

 

first of all thank you for your nice reviews and sharing impressions.

 

I would like to buy GR07BE.

 

But I have some questions.

 

I'm listening the Classical musics, jazz, country, acoustic guitars and symphonies.

 

I would like to detailed sound, detailed guitar sounds and wide soundstage for symphonies. Bass edition will be ok for me? Mid range will be enough?

 

Now I'm using Sony mdr-ex110ap, probably It will be perfect for me but I would like to use GR07BE for 4-5years.

 

I'm waiting your comments.

 

Thanks

So, I know I'm a year or so too late, but now I'm starting to see what the hype is about these. Not much I can say that hasn't already been covered but if you're considering anything in the $120 range, don't hesitate to check these out. I'm not too much of a believer in burn in, but I swear these have started to separate and space out more. The low end wasn't this clear yesterday. The attack and decay is magnificent. Could just be that my reference is the VSD3S which is a bit less refined and tight, but bio cellulose may be changing my mind about how much a transducer can change with use.

I'm really enjoying all of those styles on the BE and I think you would too. I don't find the bass too much; they aren't basshead IEMs at all. You could also consider the classic edition, but I haven't personally heard it. (Joker's comparison between the classic and BE are here: http://www.innerfidelity.com/content/vsonic-gr07-and-gr07-bass-edition). Guitars will be super detailed, nothing to worry about there. You'll hear plucking decay, slides, subtle knocking against the guitar's body. Everything is there. Soundstage is nice and wide, but not the deepest. Kind of oval shaped. I've heard the mids are a little more laid back on the BE than the GR07 but they're still very detailed. Coming from the ex110, you'll love them.

Thank you for your reply.

 

Your answer is completely cover my all doubts. Last week I try Ortofon E-Q7, Westone UM3X and Hifiman RE-600.

 

I loved re-600, and I realized my current earphone is not so good for sound ;)

 

Probably when I will get the GR07BE, I need to burn in it.

 

Again thank you for your reply.

 

GR07BE will make me happy.

 

So which option will be ok for GR07BE on Complyfoam tips?

 

And who will be winner of this competition: Shure SE215 vs Vsonic GR07BE?

There is no contest between the 215 and the BE, unless you have issues with hot treble where the smoother 215 might be more to your liking (I don't have issues with the BE treble but other users have so you'll have to see). In terms of separation and tightness of the bass though, the VSonic is much better. The 215 do have more bass, but it is looser and flabby, and it colors the other frequencies.
post #2287 of 2377

Yeah, a lot of people have said the VSD3S is better or at least as good as the SE215. The Gr07 easily wins that fight. As far as comply tips go, I'm not sure what size you'd want. T400 fits but it slides over the nozzle to do so. You'd probably want the T200. That being said, I find that the Comply tips make the treble and upper mids a little darker which leads to less clarity and detail. I prefer the stock silicone on the BE.

I would like to use isolation plus one but I dont know which model number can fit on GR07BE.

Like I said above, Tx-200 would fit, but the GR07BE doesn't sound as good with foams.

post #2290 of 2377

Try MH1 tips if you have them, they offer better isolation than any other silicon tip i've tried with the GR07. They aren't as comfortable as the foamies but they sound better imo and they fit consistently with no need for preparation before insertion.

+1

The Sony silicone tips that come with just about every iem they sell works pretty good also

I have Sony Hybrid earbuds, Can I use this on GR07BE? Because these buds are really nice fit on my ear

post #2293 of 2377

He has the EX-110AP, so he's got the hybrids already. I think they're smaller bored and shorter than the MH1 tips, but should be similar. 

 

EDIT: Yeah, you can use them fine. They give up a bit of detail over the stock tips, but they're very comfortable.

They do fit the GR07 but i got better results with the MH1 tips. Better isolation and more linear treble. Still, every ear is shaped differently so the hybrids might work better for you.

 

[EDIT]

Bore size is the same between the MH1 and the hybrid tips, the differences are length and texture. The MH1 tips provide a deeper and more secure insertion, to me at least. This translates in substantial differences in sound. The MH1 is as cheap as dirt and a very good sounding budget iem, so i would get one (i own several :P) for the tips as well as the sound.

That's why I love VSonic's stock medium tips. It sounds like the MH1 tips are a good alternative if your ears are bigger or can't get a seal with the stock tips.
