GR 07 vs IE 80 vs Brainwavz B2 for rock music

post #1 of 5
Thread Starter 

I`ve been choosing the best IEM for Rock, Jazz and Blues, mostly for Rock under 300$ for two months. I can buy all of these IEM almost for  the same priсe now. 

Gonna use it with Cowon J3 without any amps. 

 

I just cant decide between those. All of them have pros and cons

 

GR07 has to be great, but they have sibilances and many say that they are too boring for rock n roll

IE - bad isolation, too much bass

DBA-2/B2 - lack of bass, dry sound coz its BA

 

I like power sound very much when a guitar sounds like it should sound, smashin` drums, expressive vocal and so

Is there anythyng under 300$ like that?

I wanted to buy ue 900, but in europe they are to expensive - 400 euro

 

 

Please help me with it, coz I`m stucked

What would you recommend?

 

PS: I would like to see the AFR/AFC graffic for the GR07, but I cant find it((

 

Thank you

Wait, who said the GR07 is too boring for rock and roll?  Wow...and most simblance goes away after around 200 hours.  I really think the GR07 is perfect for rock and roll...especially with a J3 because you can tweak the heck out of the sound if you so desire.  Great EQ in that thing.

Yeah! I thought about it. Through the all this time Im choosing the new IEM my preference is on the GR07`s side. But some people say that there`s even more sibilances over 300 hours of burn-in.

Also their sensitivity is about 105 db and 50omhs impedance. What about the vol. level on the J3?

I love my B2 for rock music. Fast and aggressive. I think their lack of bass is sometimes exaggerated. It has plenty for me.
