I am not really digging the less extended polite treble as well as the rounder/ softer bass texture tuning, but the overall fuller, more out of the head sound is a nice addition since it makes it sound a bit more 3D.
/initial impressions/ rant
edit: Lets see what burn-in does for these.
Fingers crossed but i ain't expecting miracles. haha
After about 30 hours of burn in and listening to some of my favorite tracks from Red Hot Chili Peppers and Foo Fighters, the polite treble is the one thing I keep focusing on, in a bad way. I am okay with the softer bass but the cymbals from these bands all sound the same whereas on the GR07BE and even the VSD1, to some extent, can differentiate the various cymbal strikes.
I know I was enamored initially about the overall neutrality, but the more I listened, the more I missed the splashy clangs of the highs.
I feel these may be stored as backup to my backup...
