I prefer the simpler VSD1 design, so these better sound really good after that delay and the sub-par looks. Of course, it's possible that the model in the pictures is a prototype made from some of the materials they had lying around - VSd1's plastic and a gr04's cable, so the final design might look better.
Gotta say, I'm not super-keen on their looks either. In fact, I can't really see me wanting to wear those out in public. And although that translated impression says they are comfortable, I'd be concerned about that.
Maybe I'll warm up to their looks. But at this point, yeah, they better sound really good for me to be interested.
