That's an interesting choice by VSONIC.
So then they'll have two IEMs that compete with the AKG at different price points...?
No, as per an earlier post, my guess is the cheaper one ($180) will compete with the $1,300 K3003, and the more expensive one ($500) will compete with the ~$4,500 SR-009 (the Stax requiring a very expensive amp, BTW).
Well, I always believe manufacturers' claims—ALWAYS—and when VSonic's CEO stated the GR08 / V7007 would put the K3003 to shame (or words to that effect), I knew straightaway he was telling the truth, nothing but the truth.
Well, the gr07be's didn't work out too well for me personally, but the vsd1's do work very well for me and imo they punch WAY above their price bracket. So I am open to the thought that 2014 might indeed be The year of Vsonic!...
