VSONIC just announced that GR99, which was only released to the market for a short few months, has been discontinued due to overly low price (apparently they are selling at cost, and the cost went up). GR04 will also be discontinued this month, followed by GR02 (both normal and bass edition) around the end of the year.
Wow, That sucks for those looking for low cost, good sound. I can't believe how good the GR99 sounds for $25, I have the GR02 Bass edition stuck in customs so it should be here this week.
Is it worth picking up the GR04 if you own the GR06 already? I'd say for anyone who doesn't own these they should jump on them while they can. I've always thought these "lower" models were priced to low, couldn't see how Vsonic was making a profit on them? If the GR99 had the same cable as the GR06 I'd pay $50-60 for them no problem.
Hopefully they don't redo the whole price range?, I'd hate to see the GR06 go up to the $100 range since it will be the "New" low model. It makes it real hard for us guys who don't have the extra $$ to get a great IEM, Personally I'd love the GR07 but can't swing the $150 plus price, or either I can't tell myself that the price jump from $50 (GR06) to $150+(GR07) is worth it? $100+ more in price is hard to do for me.
Wishful thinking, If the GR06 will be bottom model, keep the price at the $60 it's going for now, and bring the GR07 closer at $100-110, move the GR01 to $150ish....I'm sure they will still make a lot of profit and move more in sale due to it being easier to afford, just my thoughts:)
