VSONIC - More to Come

VSONIC just released the latest of their line-up - but not a flagship, not just yet. The new models is called GR06 and it is priced around $50. There are however more models to come, including (1) GR99 and the next flagship dual balanced armature GR01 (was GR00) that are supposed to come before the end of the year, (2) the dual balanced armature + one dynamic GR08 and 6 balanced armature GR09 for next year, plus (3) the portable headphone ST11, two earbuds OX01 and OX02 with at least 3 more models that have yet to be confirmed. 

Yeah, it will be a busy year for VSONIC.

GR06 is currently in China only. You'll have to wait for the international dealer to pick it up.

Andre said...

Oh ok thanks,probably waiting for Lend Me UR Ears.

hey i heard u got the Zo sound subwoofer. any first impressionn on that ? is it worth the hype everyone is raving about? thanks.

Tai / ClieOS said...

As an portable amp, ZO might not be the best around. If you are purely interested in getting more power, better separation, larger soundstage, etc, it might not be that interesting. But the hardware EQ is very well done. It gives a richer tone (not just adding bass) to the overall sound without degrading the mid and treble, and that's the best part about ZO. Overall my impression is positive and I can see why some really love it. But on the other hand, I can also understand some might not need the ZO if they are not looking for EQ.

Anyway, I won't be reviewing ZO as a standalone product as I am getting the upcoming ZO v.2 in next few weeks. It will serve as a reference for the ZO v.2 review.

Hey,i saw in your Possible Reviews a VSONIC gr06,have you found a International dealer who has it?

Tai / ClieOS said...

No, I haven't. It is a review sample straight from VSONIC.

jays said...

where did you get all this info??

Tai / ClieOS said...

Most of the time, a lot of internet browsing in tech news blog, manufacturers' website and forums.

Please keep us up to date, Tai. Quite interested in the GR08 myself. If they use a driver as good as the GR07 plus dual armature and the right tuning and enclosure, that could be something special. Hopefully at the $300 price point as well. Doesn't AKG want ~US$1,500 for the same thing, lol? The GR08 might turn out to sound even better:)

GR08 and GR09, yeah baby, if GR07 is anything to go by in sound quality, would be dying to hear what their six-BA sounds like, here's hoping that they would price is way below UM Miracle :)

i wonder what rating does GR06 gonna be in the list? can't wait for the full review...

how much burn-in does the GR06 require?

Tai / ClieOS said...

Not much really. It sounds fine fresh. If you really want to burn it in, 50hrs should be more than enough.
