It's possible.

That's interesting about the stage though, since from what I recall, the Heaven V stage isn't smaller than the GR07 Mk1 I had (a while while back though). And the Mk1 some have noted as having a larger presentation than the mk2 and BE.

Maybe I'll give them a shot. Good extension at the looks of it, but kind of a weird placement on that mid bass bump. Looks interesting at least, and comfy.

^ Having a massive soundstage isn't all that difficult tbh, LOTS of bass centric iems have huge staging, but mids and highs a lot of the times are severely lacking/ scooped out, etc.

 

It's all about the cohesiveness of the overall staging which envelops the deep, tight, punchy bass, with lush/ textured mids along with a well extended sparkly treble. This is the basics of i am looking for in almost all my gears. :)

Large staging and large convincing presentations are different things. Most of the larger staged IEMs I've heard we're a arguably bass heavy.

GR07 BE Comparison:

 

Similar bass levels, very comparable here and hard to make out a  winner. I use both with a EQ of -7db on the midbass and both sound quite similar here.

 

Midrange on the Quadbeat is a bit more forward and sounds more neutral overall. GR07BE is definitely more sibilant, LGQ2 has just as much energy, yet smoother.

 

Treble is more extended, more detailed on the LGQ2. Not surprised as this is the strength of this IEM. GR07BE has similar sparkle and shimmer but just isn't as expansive in treble detail.

 

Soundstage sounds more expansive on the LGQ2, taller on the GR07BE. Imaging on both is comparable, but I'll give the slight edge to the LGQ2.

Hope these LGs are just as good/ fun/ refined as the MH1Cs.

 

 

Same here - I've recently tried both the MH1 and more recently the original Quadbeat, and I still prefer the MH1 personally.  Like most, my biggest qualm with the MH1 is the cable.  Right now I'm attempting to recable two pairs, so if I have success I'll post the results in the MH1 thread.  The QB2 seems to have alot of potential.

:cool: Definitely subbed now!  I think I'm going to have to bite the bullet and give these a try.  The reviews/measurements previously posted from goldenears look decent.

Oh oh oh, if successful hook me up with a set friend. :ksc75smile: I have stuff to trade if you are interested. ;)

No pressure though. :)

Ordered!

 

Since the H1 doesn't seem so promising, I decided to skip the new Sony offering.

Now let's see how good the new Quadbeat 2 really is...

Inks has a reputation to uphold; so I'm confident that he's not just hyping.

subbed, can't wait to hear more impressions about them from you guys!:o

Having heard LG speakers and a sound bar I'd need a hell of a lot of positive word of mouth to even spend $10 on their earphones.  The speakers were so f'n bad it's obvious they were tuned by a retarded monkey on acid.  No trust here.

The original Quadbeats were very well received, Joker gave them a 10/10 value in his review thread.

iSound tuned these and Quadbeat 1, I don't think they've done any other products for LG.

I bash overpriced IEMs, so I'm definitely not going to be recommending poor stuff around these parts.

That raises the question: Who are iSound and what makes their contribution significant?  When googled I find a supplier of low end apple oriented electronics.
