But then, after securing a proper fit, which of course is crucially important for IEMs (I used Comply foam tips since none of the three included silicon tips fit me properly), and plugging them in to a quality music source, all negative thoughts vanished because the sound is incredible! I own Grado RS1i headphones, and they have somehow managed to replicate the amazing sound quality of those headphones into these little GR-10 IEMs. The sound is a little less airy and the soundstage isn't as wide (not really surprising since the RS1s are open-backed headphones) but in some ways there is more of a feeling of presence using the IEMs. I have no idea how they do it. But do it they do. These IEMs are expensive, but I think they are well worth it. Highly recommended.
I really liked the minimalist approach, except that I wish it came with the microphone. One thing I especially like (that has not been mentioned by others) is the cable, very light and elastic - not too stiff, but not too flabby - so it doesn't get tangled up! Design is simple and elegant.
As for the sound, it is surprisingly open, transparent, and detailed, which can sometimes give a false impression that bass is weak. But it's not. It's very tight bass with just about right quantity (I know this is a very subjective part in the frequency spectrum).
After a few days, however, I decided to find a way to dislike it, as an excuse to justify an upgrade to the ultimate $1000 earphones (with a microphone too). A while ago I had a chance to audition Shure SE846 and was mightily impressed, so I have long been thinking about buying the ultimate and be done. Then I had a chance to borrow Westone W40 ($499) for A/B comparison. If another $100 can give me a significant jump, I was going to settle for it and save $500. For the tests, Apple lossless tracks were played on Macbook Air using iTunes, played through the Meridian Explorer USB DAC with full upsampling up to 192kHz.Read more ›
Enter the GR10s. I purchased a pair and have been using them for about six months now. I run them from a Fiio X3 and use WAV FLAC or other lossless formats. The pairing of an excellent source and the GR10s provides superb sound.Read more ›
