Pros: Detail retrieval, lush/articulate across the spectrum, crisp, extremely clean and fast/dry, great "open" feel with very responsive dynamic range.
Cons: Perceivable peaks and valleys in the treble region, detail retrieval/articulation almost to a fault with some "smooth" genres like classical.
After owning the Vsonic GR07 Classic Edition for about 2 months or so, all I can say is these are absolutely brilliant.

They are quite neutral, however have a full low-mid area and a 6.5kHz peak, a build to a 10K peak, then a dip around 12kHz and then another peak above that (se for example innerfidelity for a detailed FR graph).
For critical listening, they are probably not as spectrally linear as you'd need.
However, they have a mildly scratchy/papery... (read more)
