    Not sure if there’s been any official word elsewhere on pricing yet, so...

    Local price for the Rai Penta is 1,590,000KRW (~$1410), with a 10-day promo price of 1,272,000KRW (~$1130).

    I’d expect the price internationally to be around that $1100 range.

    If you get a chance to demo the rai penta can you compare them to the z1r and xv?
  3. BananaOoyoo
    What's the XV? I might actually wait until next weekend to stop by and try it though, since the store hasn't gotten in the other IEMs I want to compare it with. (I'm doubtful Noble Khan will be there in a week, but the Z1R might be, seeing as it's officially released now)
  4. singingbee
    Actually its the qdc vx.
  5. BananaOoyoo
    Ah. I can try that one too, but it’s at a different store. (Actually, the Sony’s available at the Sony store already, but I don’t like trying to compare iems from different listening environments)

    Also... Rai Penta sold out in a day. :)

    Aesthetically, they’re on point (as expected). I like the final color more than the prototypes’.

    Penta looks so good! I am really hoping the sound is similarly on point too. Any initial impressions?

    The totl iem has BA and a Dynamic driver ?
  10. BananaOoyoo
    Yep. It's a penta hybird, with one DD and two dual-BA drivers.

    I demoed it, great build, fits great. Laid back sound, nice deep bass, but it lacked a little in the treble.

    Damn these look gorgeous, even nicer than Solaris. If they sound as good as they look and can compete with other hybrids in this price range - I know what I'll be buying at summer.

    Gave it a try at CanJam NYC today for about 10 minutes. Great ergonomics and great fit. Sound wise, it was very nice - it was neutral for me across the board for bass, mids and treble. Please take in mind that I'm new to high-end IEM and I do like bass (e.g. Solaris and Legend X). Will try to give it another listen tomorrow.

    Yeah man keep the impressions coming, let us know about soundstage too.
