Summary: The overall sound is similar to the Audeze LCD-2F - slightly on the warm side of neutral, but without the ultimate resolution the LCD-2F has. And easier to drive so you can plug them into your phone. The bass is all there but it's not bloated or enhanced like it is with so many IEMs.
Summary: I received my GR07 MK2 a few weeks back, and they have gone through the hundreds of hours supposedly required for burning in their bio-cellulase drivers. Having gotten over my new toy effect, I still enjoy them immensely, so I figured it’s time for my first review.
Pros: Balanced sound, comfortable fit, fantastic cable, great build quality
Summary: I've written a full, more detailed review here: Passion For Sound
In summary though, the GR07 MkIIs are a brilliant earphone for the money. The only other IEM which I find comparable for the price is the HiFiMan Re-272 which is now no longer available.
Pros: Neutral sound signature, good details, great performance for the price, moderate impedance makes them versatile with different sources
Cons: Fit took a while to get right with adjustable nozzles / square housings. Cable guides are bulky and without them the cable sometimes falls off my ears
Summary: I had the GR07s for a few months before I got the BEs secondhand. I loved the GR07 sound and if I had to nitpick and find one thing to improve upon it would be their slightly dry bass range.
Well. Problem solved.
The BEs are are incredible IEM.
Summary: These iems are incredibly detailed and clear at both ends of the spectrum. Although this is the bass edition of the GR07, the bass is not too heavy as to cloud the mids and highs. It is quick and controlled, but never fails to let its presence be known.
Pros: Sound stage, treble and bass extension, incredible detail, sq:price ratio
Cons: Require a lot of burn in, stock foams are useless
VSONIC is a well-known name in audiophile circles, with rave reviews coming from their GR07 monitors, which have recently seen an upgraded Mark II version and, the version I’ll be covering today, the Bass Edition.
Pros: Excellent Bass Quality and Quantity, Well Balanced Sound Signature, Great Selection of Accessories
Cons: Occasionally Prone to Mild Sibilance, Bass Rumble Might Be Fatiguing for Some
Summary: The VSonic GR07 Bass Editions are quite possibly the best value in the world of universal IEMs, from my somewhat limited experience. With that being said, let me explain why I absolutely adore these little candy-cane cabled beauties.
First off, let's take a look at the design and comfort.
Pros: Bass quality and quantity. Relatively well balanced with slight emphasis on the low end. Quite detailed and natural sounding. Highly adjustable fit.
Cons: Sibilance! It can get annoying. Reports of one side cutting out after a few months of usage.
Summary: After owning the Vsonic GR07 Classic Edition for about 2 months or so, all I can say is these are absolutely brilliant.
Very articulate, fast/dry sound. These will extract details almost to a fault, to the point where classical music isn't realistically presented for the most part, due to overly...
Pros: Detail retrieval, lush/articulate across the spectrum, crisp, extremely clean and fast/dry, great "open" feel with very responsive dynamic range.
Cons: Perceivable treble peaks prevent linear response, detail retrieval/articulation almost to a fault with some "smooth" genres like classical.
Summary: These are amazing IEMs for the price. It is a balanced IEM and isnt lacking across the spectrum. They can handle pretty much every genre you put through these.
The bass on these is excellent, it rumbles down deep, while being very quick and tight.
Pros: Highly detailed, neutral, goes well with whatever you throw at it
Cons: Can be sibilant (requires 100+ hours of burn in), springy cable, unhelpful strain reliefs.
