Sometimes, this may lead to bass bleeding into the mids.

Another definition of mid-bass is the bass at around 60-150Hz.

Yes, well you can put it that way....

How would the Shures and RHAs compare if we add the Vsonic GR07 Classic and the GR06 to the mix, like zunehdrock suggested? Although I was looking for something with a mic or with some mic support, lendmeurears is selling them as a package for about $150 and the offer seems too tempting to refuse.I also recently discovered they ship within the US from a local warehouse...

I can't say for sure since it's by memory, but I'm pretty sure the RHAs will come out as top. The GR07 is good, better than the Shures. I do remember the GR07 having less bass warmth, and slightly brighter trebles than the RHAs.

well, doesn't the GR07 have several variants, like the Bass edition, the MkII, and the Classic? Other than the classic, what's the difference between them anyway?

Oh, and the GR06 is a Bass Edition too..... Will it be any good?

The one that I compared/owned was the classic. Never heard the MkII but the bass edition I have auditioned. The bass is emphasized, but retains control. Slightly warmer than the classic but not at the level of something like the Monster Turbine or Miles David Tribute

I see....I'll be having one purchased in a couple of days, so lets see which one I get....... So I guess it'll be either the Shures or the RHAs, whichever one can be found at duty free stores or at retail.....:)

What are the chance of finding those pairs at duty free shops?

Interestingly, I also bought another pair of UE200s recently, and this time the sound sig seems a bit different...... Can you suggest any reference audio samples that I can use to test out its frequency response properly?

post #36 of 51
I have never seen any of those in duty free shops, good luck in that!

As for audio samples, you can try Open Your Ears or the Ultimate Headphones Demonstration ...something. I personally just use songs that I'm really used to and are well recorded, like the S&M album by Metallica.

Went ahead and ordered the Shures, since my former budget took a beating all of a sudden :/ ....... Will the slight lack of treble in the SE215s be that noticeable as you mentioned slashfury?

It's up to personal preferences. I'm very demanding on the treble spectrum, which is why I hate them. The trebles roll of a bit too soon, and if that doesn't bother you, you're fine. smily_headphones1.gif

Anything that can be partially solved by a bit of EQing? :)

I don't know, never tried. But I don't think it'll help a lot. It'll improve the quantity, not quality.

You need an electrostatic headphone amp to drive an electrostatic headphone

Sorry for the overly long absence...... Just got the SE215s today :biggrin: As for first impression, it is definitely a HUGE improvement from the UE200s I have (SQ wise, even with improper seal :p). But I still haven't been able to get a proper fit, so gotta swap around the tips a bit before I can do a full assay of the SQ....

Which reminds me, the foams tips that came attached with the earphones out of the box are real hard to remove and don't look like they can be without damaging them first. I tried following the guide that came with the box, but it doesn't work. Any suggestions to that?
