The first GR07 were released in 2011, and immediately earned themselves a privileged position among users as versatile earphones with an astounding quality-cost relationship. Their main virtues are undoubtedly a balanced, precise sound, a wide soundstage and a very natural timbre. Short after, the current MK2 were released, minimizing certain sibilance issues present in the early version and providing improvements in both the cable and the finishes, which put the icing on the cake of an already fantastic product.
Whenever we mention the virtues of these earphones, the list of adjectives goes always the same: natural, balanced, precise, pleasant, all-purpose… and then “natural” again. Too often, the lack of grandiose adjectives such as “impressive bass sounds” or “crystalline treble” leads some –especially those who just landed on the audio world– to divert their attention towards more appealing models. After a while, when they finally get to try some GR07, they immediately realize their mistake.
As opposed to more spectacular options, the GR07 deliver a more mature sound that hooks after some use and is missed when not around. Everything sounds where it’s meant to, without major lacks; it’s the sum of all these virtues that makes the GR07 a highly esteemed earphone even among those who own more advanced and expensive models.
Focusing in the sound, the bass has a good extensions and power without being excessive or smudging other frequencies. Mid-range is greatly present, close and with a nearly perfect articulation. Finally, treble levels are precise and reach really high with enough control. No frequency overlaps the others –maybe mid and mid-highs are slightly emphasized–, which provides a relaxed listening that never goes uneasy.
Crafting doesn’t fall behind, providing comfort, considerable isolation and great durability. Despite not being the most comfortable and isolating earphones available, the GR07 reach high levels in both aspects, providing an excellent experience. ON the other hand, they’re solid as a tank, with high quality components, many of them oversized. The cable and other connectors are extremely solid while providing really good touch and ergonomics. Finally, presentation is impressive, as usual in the Vsonic family. They come with ear guides, a very useful pouch and, above all, an endless array of eartips among which you’re sure to find the ones that fit you the best.
Summarizing, one of the best earphones to be found in our store and in the market. They provide a magnificent use experience thanks to a sound quality, comfort and durability often reserved for models twice their price.
