What exactly is different in the bass? More subbass with same midbass? Or more of both?
Does the midrange become more recessed in the bass edition? And do the highs change as well in comparison to the mk2?
I wish I had the MK2 for comparison, but from what I remember from the MK1, (which I auditioned) it's drivers were just as fast as BA drivers, and that I was very impressed. But back then, I only had my RE0 as point of comparison. The main difference that I can point out is the sibilance that was very apparent on the MK1 has been considerably tamed with the bass edition.
Bass comparison between the GR07 bass edition vs. BA200:
BA200 is fast and accurate. It gets out of the way fast and does not become muddied. However it lacks the sheer volume that the Gr07 has. It goes deep, probably as deep as the Gr07, but considering the quantity, the Gr07 feels like it goes deeper.
The Gr07 has the impact and volume, but like I said, it tends to get muddied with fast passages. Complex bass patterns coupled with percussions seems to get drowned out either because the overpowering bass or, the drivers really are having a hard time keeping up, or both.
But like I said, they are only apparent when compared to each other. Without the BA200, I would have said the Gr07s have excellent speed and are clear even with the fastest songs.
