VSONIC Focus 007 - The world's first planar-magnetic IEM - Info & expectations thread

post #1 of 85
Thread Starter 

It was announced today by it's CEO that VSONIC will release the world's first planar-magnetic IEM, and this new model will be called the Focus 007biggrin.gif

 

 

Not much info available so far, and no price or ETA yet. Price is said to be above 2000 YUAN (~320 USD).

 

 

Here's the link to the original announcement about these, that I posted back then in the GR07 thread:

Another mention to the planar IEM in a recent VSONIC's CEO announcement, on December 2012:

That kind of suspense is totally uncalled for... my heart can't take it.

It is still quite far from the actual release and I don't think we need to be excited just yet.

Thanks for sharing, but I found this:

YH-5Ms are vintage orthdynamic headphones. The orthdynamic is a dynamic version of planner driver.

 

Is this the same technology? rolleyes.gif

Oohhh.

YH-5M 'eartips' are intended to sit on top of the ear canal, not going in. So technically it functions more like an earbud than an IEM.

And hence technically bigsmile_face.gif

 

Can't wait for this though.
