I had the GR07 for a little bit over a year, and unfortunately the right side broke. I'm guessing the drivers and not the wires broke since no matter how i twist the wires, the right side does not come on. I was thinking of getting higher tier IEMs, and I was wondering what you guys suggest? I really loved the balance and clarity of the GR07, though it could use just a tad bit more sub bass. I could also use a (very) sightly darker tone too. So far I was looking at either the Sennheiser IE8 or the IE80, but wasn't sure how they compared to the GR07's. I read that the IE80 is supposed to have a bit more sub bass and less mid bass than the IE8, but I don't actually know how the IE8 is compared to the GR07. Would you recommend these, or would you recommend any other next tier IEMs to me? I think I can get the IE80 for 330 dollars.
Also, isolation is not too important, but I need these to be sturdy enough so that I can bring it back and forth from my internship everyday.
Edit* I mostly listen to classical movie/anime OST and vocaloid, the latter of which covers a wide range of genres/sounds. There is the occasional melodic death metal in there though.
