VSONIC V7007 (former "GR08") - Info & expectations thread - Page 41

post #601 of 923
Thread Starter 

Thank you for your help with the translation, Leoptimistic! I'm going to update the OP with this new information... beerchug.gif

 

 

About these new facts, I guess the name is the least important. We already knew that "GR08" wasn't going to be it's final name. Then the price, I guess it's where it should be, as we were hoping for 300~350USD. And now we have a final ETA...

 

For those in China, it's likely that VSONIC will have a pre-order deal somewhere before that date of February 25, like they did with their other most recent releases, so stay tuned! As for all of us in the rest of the world, I think mid March is the date to wait for! wink.gif

So, here are two new annoucements from VSONIC's CEO, where I think he's again talking about the V7007 (and the new GR07 facelift too). I need help again with the translation, please:

 

 

Quote 1 :
K3003在专业角度来看本来就很一般,吐槽的兄弟们希望到时候看看我们的做工,听听看声音对比,不排除还是有人以价论声,我们可能还有部分细节做的不够完美,我还是希望国内的所有烧友可以正面的去看待国产产品,毕竟现在国内的烧友圈的氛围实在是太畸形了。本人直性子,实在人,不喜欢者可绕道。

 

 

Quote 2:
VSONIC声学旗下GR07系列将会在1个月左右迎来一次小改款,主要针对外观细节做工不完美等进行修改,重新开设一套模具。另外此款圈铁上市后,后期还有1款旗舰圈铁正在研发当中。作为国产技术巅峰的 同轴双单元耳塞,平板单元小耳塞 将在圈铁发布后陆续进行发布,涉及到2款技术的耳塞,售价均会超过2000元

WUT? They're saying from a professional POV, K3003 is just a normal earphone. And hinting that their newly developed IEM wouldn't lose to that AKG's flagship IEM?

The price is even lower than what I expected! eek.gif Dear sirs, I hereby declare officially that the V7007 will be my next IEM! ksc75smile.gif

From a professional standpoint, the K3003 is but an average earphone. I hope that when our product is launched, those who despise/belittle us will look at our workmanship, and compare the sound of these earphones. I won't dispute the possibility that some will judge sound quality by price, and we may also have flaws when dealing with certain details. However, I still hope that all local (Chinese) audiphiles will view domestic products positively, especially since the local audiophile scene is one with a very distorted perspective. I am a very blunt and practical person, and I don't like to beat about the bush.

Vsonic's GR07 series will undergo a slight modification around January, which deals specifically with the aesthetic flaws of these IEMs and will use a newly designed mould for production. After this is released in the market, you can expect a new flagship dynamic [I'm not familiar with the term "圈铁" in audiophile language, but it could mean hybrid as it is an amalgamation of "动圈 (dynamic)+动铁(BA)] that is currently in development. The most technologically superior (in the domestic market) dual driver IEM [Translator: prossibly referring to the V7007, which is due for release in February, seeing that it will be released after January when the new GR07s enter the market], as well as planar IEM will be subsequently revealed after the dynamic IEMs have been released. These new IEMs will be priced at more than 2000 Chinese Yuan/Renminbi.

Wow, is that so? I wonder what's left for the rest of the IEMs in the market then. They are just plain garbage?

post #609 of 923
Strong words but I sense he is determined to sy that the V7007 will make a statement and if anything it steps up the competiion and it's good for all of us

Thank you very much again for the translation, Leoptimisticbeerchug.gif

 

 

So, VSONIC's CEO has high hopes for the V7007, as we do! I think his goal was to develop an IEM that uses the same technology as the K3003, but sounds better (!?!) for less than a third of the K3003's price! And from his words, you can clearly see that VSONIC's target market is in China... And again, he mentioned the planar IEM! biggrin.gif

 

From his words, I think that after the V7007, they will release an highend dynamic and that first planar IEM, both with a prive above 2000 YUAN! VSONIC, VSONIC... popcorn.gif

Where am I supposed to keep all these (hopefully) awesome VSonic toys?

 

I WANT A VSONIC LUNCHBOX, DAMMIT.

post #613 of 923

Sorry for not being around to translate, putente --- I've been busy (and will remain so). It looks like leoptimistic has done a good job of translating, though.

 

From all of the previous "tweets" I've seen him post, VSONIC's CEO seems to be a bit of a cocky guy; I'm not surprised that he declares his V7007 to be superior to the K3003; the truth, though, is that AKG did do a very good job of taking care of the tuning of the K3003, and it will require, despite all of VSONIC's capabilities, a gargantuan effort to surpass the K3003 in technical ability. Perhaps he believes so from a subjective, sound signature perspective, but I can't imagine any real improvements beyond the K3003 when it uses a very similar form factor and drivers. He claims that the K3003 has problems with the crossover networking, which isn't really true. The only issues I see with the K3003 are with distinct changes in character in the CSD response, and that's an inherent issue when hybridizing BAs and dynamic transducers.

 

With that being said, I've always maintained that the K3003 was overpriced by quite a few hundred bucks, and the V7007 will undercut my acceptable price by about half as well, so that's exciting. I'm also looking forward to the GR07 aesthetic/QC refresh. They say that they're using a completely new set of injection molds; perhaps the bizarre 'Walkaudio' label will also be gone, too.

Come on, you really think it's expensive? It's like saying:

 

- "Hey, look, I found this company which is selling Ferraris for $300".

- "Quite expensive, huh? I can buy a bycicle for $100".

I think the problem is everyone has a different outlook on what's expensive, especially...especially with audio gear. Never in my right mind would I think of purchasing a $300 IEM when I first joined head-fi, I laughed with a budget of $50 at the time. Then...after a while I crept up to $100....$120.....$150 etc etc.. Now $300 doesn't seem so unreasonable. My point is we're all at different stages in this hobby and what's expensive to some may not be to others. regardless of their income.
