Comments and reviews from the revered audiophiles:
– Perhaps it’s the softer, smoother characteristic up top, but I find the GT-R to be quite easy and enjoyable to listen to. I might even prefer it to the Alpha. (link) – Jude Mansilla, Founder @ Head-fi.org
– The GT-R’s detailed sound is engaging and well rounded with a mid-range focus that makes vocals the central focus. (link) – B9Scrambler, Reviewer @ Head-fi.org
– The slightly more compact GT-R is an over-ear semi-open planar magnetic design that’s a little more efficient for use with portable devices. It’s warmer sounding than it’s rather neutral big brother. To my ears it seemed like a good headphone for metal and rock. (link) – Tyll Hertsens, Editor-in-Chief @ InnerFidelity.com
