Product Description
Combining the accuracy of planar magnetic drivers with the customizability of switchable tuning nozzles, GoldPlanar’s GL12 IEM takes earphone listening to new heights. Ultra-responsive, the 12.5-millimeter planar magnetic drivers found in each earphone feature a nanometers-thick diaphragm for excellent dynamic performance and detail, as well as powerful N52 neodymium magnets for maximum efficiency Read More

Headfonics review of the Gold Planar GL12 https://headfonics.com/gold-planar-gl12-review/ "The GL12 is a bizarre oddity in the planar-magnetic segment of the IEM arena. The GL12’s dynamism is being held back its complete aversion to any “roughness” in the FR. However, its velvety, cascade-like bass response is strangely endearing; there is some potential in the GL12."

Well I just received my pair of these (the black version, bought direct from linsoul) and I’ve got to say, I don’t know why others are shitting on them. I’m not an audiophile with loads of crazy gear, but previously I had been using the tin p1 and a ifi Hipdac and that was great for me. Loved the p1’s sound, but I guess I had gotten used to their lack of bass, these are head and shoulders above them in my opinion. Similar levels of clarity and placement of instruments etc, but with a much more open feel and a hell of a lot more bass!! I definitely recommend, don’t know why others are hating them, maybe they got faulty sets?

You wanna know why? Buy a pair of Audeze’s $2,500 LCDi4 (with their included $400 cable, and I must say for a naked cable which I’m normally not a fan of as I don’t build naked cables, was quite thoughtfully and meticulously designed and sounds great; oh, and make sure to order it terminated specially with a 4-pin XLR or 4.4mm Pentaconn; otherwise you’ll get a 3.5mm which is a huge waste) paired with a killer home balanced DAC and balanced amp, or a balanced portable DAC/amp such as the FiiO Q5s (connected to your iPhone), with the FiiO THX AAA-78 module installed that can output the required 500mW per channel at the LCDi4’s 32 ohms, and you’ll immediately find out why. I must also say I find it hysterical when people talk about “instrument placement,” like they have a clue of what causes it: phase noise and distortion from crappy, non-precision oscillators, poor PCB design with an emphasis on oscillator position, the use of mismatched delta-sigma DAC chips, and impedance mismatching between wires and connectors. Once you take care of all that, THEN WORRY about the PRaT of your earphones.

Yikes! End of Sept shipping date... I heard they got a new IEM ready to tour by that time which will use the air motion transformer technology. Maybe it might even come to Canjam socal.

I'm not a fan of his, but Crinacle just crapped real hard all over these today.

Interestingly enough, Crinacle and my measurements dont match totally. That's not a good sign.

An AM radio sounds nothing like that description though, so the review is dubious.

While I did really like the GL20 they were a bit under-developed. I have these and they have definitely aimed for a much more idealized design and sound. Took about 20 minutes to really get into the sound of a laid back planar IEM. They aren't as open as you would think but you can tell they aren't just another dynamic.

GL20 have hidden potential and really come alive with EQ: Preamp: -6.2db Filter: Peak for all frequencies 24    4.0db 0.360q 408   -4.3db 0.350q 830   -7.3db 1.200q 1454  -7.7db  1.890q 2646   8.6db  0.390q 2211   2.1db  4.980q 7421   4.9db  1.040q 11812  2.5db  0.690q 16000  0.0db  1.414q 16965 -6.2db  0.130q

I was very underwhelmed by their last IEMs, I wonder if these sound any better.

number of planar iem came out recently and most flopped..... this pair will be more scrutinized than ever

Definitely interested, but I am going to need some reviews before I buy a pair.

Same. I really wish Drop would either invest in a GRAS system or demand that the manufacturers supply measurements for products before they’re listed.
