Is there a USA dealer for the Golden Crystals?

Thanks, didn't see that. He seems to like the B2 a lot, so that seems to be a point in favor of the B2

Sorry... It's not meant to be pronounced, it's just a username... Also, it's very distinctive, so wouldn't that make it a good screen name?

I've only heard the pre-production B2. For all intents and purposes the final version should score very similarly to the DBA-02 evaluated in this thread. Yes, they are natural competitors with the GR07 - I would recommend the B2/DBA-02 if you're looking to maximize resolution and speed and the GR07 if you'd rather have a slightly less analytical signature with more bass.

None that I know of. Not sure about the price, either. I seem to remember ~$250 but I could be off the mark on that.

Well Frogbeats has the Golden Crystal for about 200$ with shipping. Interesting how they're found in the "studio-monitor" section of their site, you could also hope a coupon in the future. 

post #4327 of 16802

I'll keep an eye on frogbeats for sales and hopefully any possible reviews/impressions to pop up around here.  I really like the idea of an IEM that small and if the sound can compete with the Monster Trumpets without the ridiculous looks, I'm in.

having the pl50 , do you consider the a151 a decent/major upgrade in SQ, keeping a good fit/comfort and maybe more isolation?

No, not a major upgrade. I think the A151 is tuned a little bit better in many ways and it doesn't have that overly creamy, stuffy midrange of the PL50 but otherwise it's just not a big step up. The isolation is better but it's not as small as a PL50 so it may be less comfortable.

No. From the A151 review:

 The treble itself is clean, clear, low on sparkle, and slightly laid-back
