Summary: Designed for use as a stage monitor, VSonic’s new flagship is a very strong performer on several levels. Utilizing bio-cellulose drivers, the VSonic GR07 does have the right sound signature to become one of the few studio-friendly dynamic-driver earphones.
Pros: Well-built and well-designed, great balance and presence across the spectrum
Cons: Tends to be slightly sibilant, especially when coming from a smoother earphone
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: 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
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: 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: 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: 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.
Summary: VSonic GR07 is a great example of IEM strong because it has few flaws and almost all of these are possible to correct with a good equalizer.
Bass is perfectly controlled, excellent texture, very well extended (-6 dB at 30 Hz with perfect seal), perhaps a bit warm due to high-bass boost (~250 Hz).
Pros: Very well balanced and very precise sound, no major flaws, adjustable nozzle angle
Cons: Slightly springy cable, over-the-ear only, sibilant/presence boosted with certain tips, slightly warm, could have more highest end
