At the beginning of February, I received an unexpected email from a Vsonic representative. He expressed his liking for my review of the GR07, my very first on head-fi, as well as the ASG-2 review in my signature. He said they would like have some feedback on a project that they'd been working on for years. As a closet Vsonic fanboy who has owned every single iteration of the GR07, I think I shouted "YES!" a little too enthusiastically.
A few emails later, and I was sending him my address. A week later, I was pulling an EMS package out of my mailbox. Inside, I found this:
To say that the IEMs contained within this (crude/non-final packaging) box have been long awaited would be quite the understatement. The triple-BA/biocellulose DD hybrid design has undergone many changes due to patent feuds unseen to public eyes.
But it's here.
It's finally here.
I don't think I've felt this giddy about an IEM since the first time I fired up a Linkin Park track on the original GR07.
So, I'm going to take my time with this one. Also in my possession are the likes of the K3003, JVC FX850, Tralucent 1plus2, and a few other Uber IEMs that are simply, from early listening, NO MATCH AT ALL for this game changing design. I've always said that portable audio will not see significant improvements until significant leaps in technology are implemented. Well wait until you hear about the kind of R&D that has gone into the V7007, like the orthodynamic-like tech that has gone into the biocellulose driver, and the ultra precision of the crossovers that harness all the components.
I've already started the main draft of this review, and I'll post the rest in the coming week after my exams. I'm just posting this so the rest of the world can be ready for what's coming.
