VSONIC GR09 - Info & expectations thread

post #1 of 28
Thread Starter 

Since these are starting to be me mentioned a lot in other threads, let's start talking about them here... wink.gif

 

 

No product info about them yet on the official VSONIC site: http://www.vsonic.com.cn/

 

 

 

What is known so far, according to what's being rumored, is that they're supposed to have a 6 balanced armature driver configuration. Also, they're supposed to be released this year, and I'm guessing this will happen more towards the end of the year (or at least not before the summer)...

The first place where I read about them was here: http://www.inearmatters.net/2011/10/vsonic-more-to-come.html

 

 

 

 

 

So, this is all I can say right now about these , but I'll update this post as more information becomes available... rolleyes.gif

BTW, I know there are already 6BA custom IEMs in the market (at least the UM Miracle and the EarSonics EM6), but is there any other 6BA universal IEM already available?

Someone's quick. wink.gif

 

And considering that it's a 6 BA, I'm going to assume that it'll be a custom. Having a 6 BA universal is pure science fiction.

Oh and IF there is already a 6 BA universal in existence, I'm sure everyone will know it, instead of passing unnoticed. The release of the W4 as the first quad universal gathered a lot of hype. wink.gif

If this is the case, it means VSONIC will be opening a new line of products, going into the custom IEM market, which is new to them. Unlike you, I won't assume this yet. wink.gif But maybe that's the case, although VSONIC's line of business are universal IEM's... rolleyes.gif

 

 

I guess we need to wait for our "informer" to help us... airomjosh, where are you? biggrin.gif

Clieos' post seemed to imply that it would be a universal though, which is why it's so interesting... Maybe they're using a smaller driver?

Considering how small balanced armatures already are..... if it really is going to be a 6 BA universal, then it's going to be an interesting looking IEM. rolleyes.gif

Well, I highly doubt VSONIC will have an entire lineup of universals then suddenly have one 6 BA custom in there, assuming the GR08 will not be a custom too.

I'm scared of hearing the price...

As I said before (and judging from current and previous VSONIC product and price policy), I believe these GR09 will be universals and that the price won't be that high (for a 6BA IEM). Obviously, this doesn't mean that most of us will be able to afford it... wink.gif

Well, they usually relate to the disposition/composition of one IEM piece, not the pair. But it's possible, as the information we have so far is just a rummor... rolleyes.gif
