Since the GR01 thread is being hijacked by the GR08, I decided to start this thread, specific for the GR08. I'll update this first post it as more info becomes available...
No product info about them yet on the official VSONIC site: http://www.vsonic.com.cn/
This new model has now been officially named be VSONIC as V7007!
They're supposed to have a dual balanced armature + one dynamic driver configuration, much like the AKG K3003, but at fraction of the price (less than 1/3)!
These will feature flat removable cables and the metal parts in the housing are made of stainless steel.
ETA: around February 25 (in China). The rest of the world will probably have to wait 2 or 3 weeks to buy them (at eBay or Lendmeurears).
Price: 1999 YUAN (~320 USD).
*** NEW INFO ***:
And the first official rendering of GR08, thanks to ClieOS:
Detachable cable socket:
New picture of the metal part of the housings:
As said before, they are made of stainless steel, and it's visible that the housing has different parts!
Now, some new facts about this IEM, according to VSONIC's CEO:
- it's yet to be named officially, as market product!!! We are calling it GR08 over here, but the only "name" it has so far for VSONIC is their internal product code: 008;
- it will feature interchangeable sonic filters (like the K3003);
- each unit/pair of these is supposed to have an unique serial number;
- it will be VSONIC highest quality production standard and complex technology IEM until now.
- the product package is being said to be the most luxurious IEM package in the market (not sure what they'll include even more than the GR07 package);
- the cable color is yet to be decided, and VSONIC is accepting user suggestions about it (I hope they go for black)!
- production is supposed to start within a month, so I guess we can expect that the market availability ETA for December is for real!!!
*** Newest info, as of December 2012 (thanks Leoptimistic for the translation) ***
- Official name is V7007;
- Will be officially anounced in January;
- Market launch will be around February 25 (in China);
- Price will be 1999 YUAN, about 320 USD.
