You wish! When you get your hands on both, there will already be something better on the horizon... It's like the saying: there's always a bigger fish in the ocean! biggrin.gif

Considering this for my next IEM purchase, but only if they cut the teaser bull and release the thing. Can't stand this overhyped technique of waiting so long to release it, makes me want it less if anything because it feels like the company is using scummy marketing tactics.

Why do you think it's being overhyped?  Because they're taking their time to make sure they get it right? Scummy tactics? Please.

They are just doing the same thing as they did with the GR07. They took a long time since they announced it, until it was launched to the market. And it's launch date was also delayed at least once. You see, that's the thing with VSONIC, they take their time and perfect their products to what they believe it's right. They don't care much about market pressure, as other companies do, and then released bad designed/manufactured/tunned IEMs. And then everyone comes to HF bashing those companies, because they should've taken their time before releasing that product too early in the market...

 

And taking the GR07 (all models) as an example (and also the GR01, to some extent), VSONIC did a hell of a job for it's price/performance ratio, so I'm keeping my fingers crossed for the GR08 to trail that same path!

2 years, to be exact.

It just feels like a tease for them to make the product public knowledge so long before the release, and then keep pushing back the date. It just feels disingenuous, like they are trying to create hype. That may or may not be the case, but after 7 months, I'm sick of hearing about it. I want to hear IT!

Like the Sennheiser IE800?

 

It was to be released earlier, but they listened to customers like you who said they wanted removable cables. That's the cause of the delay, not some "disingenuous" tactic. Would you prefer hem release a half baked cable system that's prone to failure?

Don't worry, they aren't! HF pretty much doesn't exist for VSONIC, and the same applies for the global market outside of China! VSONIC is focused mainly on the chinese domestic market, where they're supposed to be a major player. The sales numbers outside of China are marginal to them, so don't worry, they're not teasing us, nor trying to create a hype here at HF over their new GR08 model. You just need to be patient like the rest of us. Hopefully, in a couple of months, our patiente will reward us all with a great sounding product, at a great price... cool.gif

I suppose that makes sense.

Well, considering it was originally supposed to be out months ago, it wouldn't have been that unreasonable for them to announce it when they did - but they decided to add new features and fix problems they were having with it, so I'd say the delay is quite understandable!

Like I said before, news about these are rolling!!! biggrin.gif

 

 

New small picture of the metal part of the housings:

 

700

 

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!!!

 

 

And that's it for now! beerchug.gif

Nice, these are reading more and more like a K3003 clone.  I hope so, I love that phone.  Another vote for a black cable.

post #404 of 923

i wouldnt mind a black cable

 

maybe too late but i would like to see it not only be used with recessed connectors to allow more aftermarket cables

This is exciting, yet worrying for my pocket. Time to start saving
