Too Good to Be True

There is a recent thread in erji.net showcasing a new JAYS' 5 drivers balance armature prototype that is on sale in the infamous TaoBao (Chinese equal of eBay) for RMB1500, or roughly US$240. Till now, all we have known about the next JAYS flagship is the long delayed quad drivers x-JAYS. But could this new FIVE drivers IEM be the next best thing from JAYS? Unfortunately, no - at least not from JAYS it is. I already received words from JAYS that they have nothing to do with this 5 drivers 'prototype' at all.

Strange though it may be, one must wonder if that is actually a company that will develop a 5 BA drivers IEM just to fake it as a phantom 'prototype' unit from another company? Then again, you never know if this IEM actually has 5 drivers or not. Well, you know, what to stop a faker from making false claim?
