Summary: I was sent the wrong item when buying from MP4 nation. I 'm giving this 5 stars because these are incredible headphones, but when you receive your Vsonic make sure that it says "bass" on the box and that the cable to two tone "candy cane" in color ads I ordered the bass edition and was sent the normal Vsonic Gr07. I t actually took me quite a while to figure this out and was barely able to send them back for a return!
Summary: First of all I would like to say that I love in ear as the big headphones hurt my ears. I used to have some $30 Sony in ear and they were great with bass but fell short on the rest. once they broke i purchase some Ultimate Ears SuperFi 5vi and I absolutely hated them. The highs and mids were decent but the lows were bad. The biggest issue I had with those was that no matter what you did the cord would cause noise from touching.
Summary: So about a year and a half ago I purchased a pair of the original GR07s right when they started to gain some steam in the US as a fantastic dynamic iem. I have been using them ever since. I loved nearly everything about them except that they were a touch bass-light when it came to listening right out of my MacBook or iPod/iPad. The rest of the sound spectrum was fantastic. Nice crisp highs, smooth vocals front and center and nice and deep, controlled bass.
Summary: Prior to the review, I would like to thank VSonic for the review sample.
VSonic is a Chinese IEM company. For years, they've been one of the leading OEM manufacturers in the world, manufacturing for some of the leading audio companies in the world. A few years ago, VSonic had started to develop IEMs to be sold under their own brand name. The flagship, the then called "R07" was developed for more than three years.
Pros: Great bang for the buck value, balanced sound-signature, very wide sound-stage, good building quality, a lot of included accessories.
Summary: For the price somewhere between $150.00 and $180.00 USD, there really isn't many other competition for the price. They really get the job done well. Can get a little stale in sound sometimes but that's really a rare case. These really are great!
Great sense if air in the treble (one of the best I've heard) with great detail and extension (sibilance was not a problem for me personally).
Fairly flat mid range that is true to the recording.
Pros: Great overall sound, HUGE bang for the buck, nice looking IEM, works well with most set ups
Cons: can be difficult to get an proper insertion (isolation)
Summary: these are nicely made and sound nice. They definitely put their sound signature stamp all over my record collection which is odd because they are fairly neutral in many respects. I feel it's somewhere in the dynamics and/or presentation that they add their unwanted stamp. For their designed purpose, on stage, I say these are spectacular and well made, but for casual and relaxed listening, they did not excite me enough to warrant further listening.
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. But the main thing which I love about the bass on these is the 'weight'. When the track calls for it these really do move a whole lot of air and slam it against your ear drums.
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.
