First impression of the GranVela V1S
The GranVela V1S In-Ear is delivered in an attractive cardboard box. When unpacking you come across a small hard-shell box, which is ideal for transport. In addition to the in-ears, a small fabric bag and two pairs of silicone pads in other sizes are also included. So you can choose between three different sized silicone pads.
The in-ear has a really spacey look through the two driver units. Each driver unit is 6mm in size, which provides neat power. The silicone pads also sit slightly angled on the drivers, making them better support in the ear and a fall out should be largely prevented. An indication of how the In-Ears are used around is missing, but you do not need it because of the angled shape.
The cable is quite thin and rubber coated. In the upper third of the cable is a microphone, which can make calls. Calls can be answered via the control. Music playback is also controlled by the control. The volume can be adjusted individually and you can also control the song selection. Incidentally, the remote also works with iOS! The 3.5mm jack plug is gold plated.
Thanks to the two driver units per ear, the GranVela V1S provides one with decent bass. Nevertheless, the sound is still very neutral and clear in both the mids and highs. GranVela has created a very nice interplay between deep and powerful bass and tonally appealing mids and highs. The basic tone reproduction is extremely full. The V1S are also very noise-isolating, which means that interfering noises are barely noticeable. This makes the room image look very realistic.
The wearing comfort is pleasantly good. The in-ear is barely noticeable in the ear and the angled ear cushions make it almost impossible to fall out. The fact that the in-ear is comparatively large does not have a negative effect on wearing comfort. Even when exercising, the GranVela V1S stayed in the ear.
