VSonic GR07 Bass Edition Impressions

  1. Fat Larry
    I'm considering the new version myself at the moment. I had the old bass eds and was super bummed when one of the buds went quiet after 18 months.

    I'm dubious about their longevity but they did pretty much everything else i wanted so well.. I think i read something along the lines that driver death was a common problem with vsonics.. maybe i shouldn't go back. But then with the detachable cables we should be able to get replacement parts right?

    Will have no problem with the removable cable version

    hmmm i'm dubious.. can anyone compare the Oriveti New Primacy to the GR07 Bass eds?

    It's the driver that usually fails so I can't see the removable cables fixing much, but they seem to last OK (2 years on average) which is much better than the VS models in my experience.

    I'd honestly just buy another set of GR07s, purely because it's hard to replicate *every* positive aspect of the sound (particularly the wide staging / spatial qualities) without spending over 3-4x as much. In my experience almost everything else around this price point loses out sonically somewhere (noticeably) to the humble GR07 and to me that's not worth bothering with.

    I own more expensive IEMs for occasional use, but when my first set of GR07s stopped working I bought a new set (they've been great, and I'd do it all again). It's a great daily driver with a great price:sound ratio in my book.

    Edit - I also agree 100% with this, and it's an important consideration:
    The GR07 is a light load so drives quite well from phones, ipods, laptops, etc. Many other IEMs (particularly multi-drivers) have more difficult impedance curves and start showing frequency response curve flaws with the same sources - particularly phones and portable media players.

    Spot on, they sound really good out of anything - phone, laptop, etc once you get to the next level amps, sources all play too much into it as well as having to be too precious about them, and defeats the purpose of a portable everyday solution..

    Is there anyone using Spinfit eartips with GR07 BE?

    I had a hard time with them. I couldn't get them inserted without pinching the soundtube off.
