VSonic GR07 MK2 - Packaging

First of all I would say a huge thank you to Zarni from the GateShop located in the USA for sending me out the VSonic GR07 MK2 Pro. I’ve always wanted to get my hands on the VSonic range, due to their incredible praise they received in the recent years. The GR07 MK2 Pro, being regarded by many as one of the best earphones, not only in its price category but as a neutral sounding earphone with a little punch. I can’t comment on the other VSonic line, nor can I compare the MK2’s to its younger brothers as I’ve never owned them.

As you’ll be able to see above, its ratings I’ve given it are quite high and I whole heartedly feel that it’s the right thing to do – I wouldn’t hesitate in recommending these earphones nor hesitate in buying myself a pair. However, you’ll be able to see from the cons that worldwide availability is something of a concern, which is a shame.
With that said I have a few links that I was able to find of the MK2’s – luckily if you live in the USA, you won’t have any problems sourcing the GR07 MK2’s.
Purchase links:
AmazonUSA $180 / £112
MP4 Nation $180 / £112
eBay posted from Hong Kong £115

As you can see above, the worldwide availability is scarce and finding these located in the UK and/or EU is actually near impossible. This means that people who lie in the UK/EU like myself would have to import them. Importing is always dangerous when it comes to custom/import taxes and even the time frame required to receive them could be extremely long. However, if you are in the USA or in Asia, you shouldn’t have any problems getting them in.

First of all I would like to thank the lovely Tanya, from Fischer Audio for sending me out the DBA-02 mk II’s!
Before getting into the review I would like to say that Fischer Audio was to me, an unknown, but yet a very established brand in Asia. Thus it came to my delight when I found these earphones being listed around the EU a little more; For example, the DBA-02 mk II’s can be bought from Top Dog Headphones, who are an authorised dealer!
