Universal In-ear monitors for Rock/Post-Punk/Easy Listening - Page 2

That's fantastic Zamorin!

 

Well, i read about the sibilance over here: http://www.innerfidelity.com/content/vsonic-gr07-and-gr07-bass-edition-page-2 and also some other places including this thread: http://www.head-fi.org/t/592582/taming-the-gr07-sibilance-aka-how-i-learned-to-love-the-dubstep 

also lachlan mentioned that the RHA's were a more comfortable fit over the GR07.

 

I'm trying to narrow down my search to just 1 that I can buy for the primary purpose of GREAT sound quality and GREAT fit.

 

RHA MA750i

 

Beyerdynamic MMX 101 iE

 

VSONIC GR07 Bass Edition

 

Any more I can read up on? RHA and GR07 are top for me so far

I actually spent about 1 month on these threads reading about IEMs before I decided to get the GR07BE. The GR07BE is the 2nd generation GR07. They just released their 3rd generation GR07, the GR07 Classic:

I would also suggest you check out the DUNU DN1000, its getting good reviews here. Another one is the Tpeos H-200, also rated highly but it might not be comfortable. I got the H-100 and its huge and difficult to get a good fit unlike the GR07BE.

Wow that's great, definitely will check out GR07 Classic.

 

Here's a question, it says it's 50 ohm impedance so will it sufficiently work with the iPhone? doesn't it mean that i need to increase the volume to hear it? i generally see 16 and 32 ohms which work great with idevices. what's ur take on that? Thanks once again.

There will be no issues with the impedance (ohms). I can run it directly from my android/laptop.

 

Another thing, best to check out the GR07 Classic thread because it seems the diaphragm used for the GR07 Classic version is not the bio-cellulose one but a different one and users are stating that the SQ is different. Just came to know about this.

cool

 

I'm thinking of getting the RHA's and Etymotic ER-4PT? Any opinion on the Etys? never tried them however i'm curious 

post #22 of 33

I think if I'm not mistaken, the ER-4PT's SQ is flat. In that case I wouldn't like it because I've tried other flat SQ IEMs and I prefer GR07 over those.

Westone UM3X is very good for rock music

While I don't care for looks that much, the UM3X are one ugly IEM so they are out just for that reason :(

 

Zamorin can you give an idea what flat iems sound like? At $299 they are expensive and rated super high everywhere and was thinking they would be a good variety to get?

 

Also, I found http://www.amazon.com/Dynamic-Isolation-Earphones-Earbuds-multiple/dp/B005FDXZJU and http://www.amazon.com/VSonic-Dynamic-Isolation-Earphones-Earbuds/dp/B00ATWLG8Y/ref=sr_1_1?s=electronics&ie=UTF8&qid=1392326218&sr=1-1

 

which one do you recommend of the 2 versions? I just find them plasticky and dont know how durable they are going to be in the long run for everyday use.

 

If you could spend $400 on 2 iems which ones would you get?

 

Is the GR07 BE and RHA a good combination or will they be too similar to each other considering they're both dynamic drivers?

Hmmm, a flat sound is where every frequency across the spectrum is equal. No headphone can be perfectly flat. The ety's sound flat with a little bit of treble and mids boost. Flat headphones usually go for accuracy over musicality. Meaning you will have an accurate sound with a flat headphone, and a fun sound with one which has a small or large bass boost, or a mid boost as well. If I could pick 2 IEM's for $400 I would instead pick one headphone and choose either the westone um3x or earsonics sm3. I don't know why you don't like the look of the um3x, I think they are wicked awesome!
Personal taste i guess.....
But i you want 2 then I would choose vsonic gr07 BE and maybe the tdk ba200. I'm not perfectly sure on that one.. I purchased some westone 3's for Christmas when they were on sale for $160 and I think they were worth it.

Oh yeah i highly recommend the westone 4 r's they have a clear sound with present bass and smooth mids. They are very good for rock music! And they have detachable cables and lots of accessories if ya care about that stuff. Check 'em out! They are that type if headphone that isn't boring, but still gives they clarity and a lot of accuracy that the flat headphones offer!

nimbostruck14 has given a good description. My reference to flat IEM was the Hifiman RE0

Hi guys

 

Just purchased GR07 BE from Amazon's GateShop seller as these are becoming hard to find. Hope this is good and I won't need to get another IEM. Thanks everyone for your help! This is an awesome forum :)
