There's no information that they will actually be upgrades sq-wise. All we know is that they'll have different tuning. As far as the higher price, that's most likely because of the higher build quality as vsonic has spent quite a bit of money on the new fancy looking housings and fancy looking packaging.

There has been no confirmation on redesigned VSD1s. So far the plan seems to be an early 2014 release of the VSD3 followed by VSD3S probably like with the VSD1S a month or two later and VSD5 and supposedly VSD5S following. As far as I know, VSD7 and VSD9 might actually be ready but Vsonic's waiting for the right moment to release them - might be at any moment, might be in quite a long time. It seems that they lack the manpower and possibly the resources to manufacture all of their new models in the time frame they originally considered possible.
And that's even without considering the fact that they were supposed to release portable and full-size cans this fall or the DAP they are working on.
