Looking forward to getting this in to review, was not a huge fan of the GMR series but im looking forward to seeing how there improved.
Doesn't look like any changes are being made to the drivers, so it should sound the same. We will see how they sound in, I'm assuming a few months when they ship.
Disappointing its only the Closed back model and not the open back one though.
Also the inline control box may be a con for some people. There is a fair amount of people, mostly on xbox one, but I have seen it affect PS4 users and the very rare case on PC with a good motherboard, who have an issue of audio bleeding into the mic and playing for people to hear. This isnt from volume being too loud and seems to be an issue that is only there when they use a heaset with a inline control box. As when you switch to a cable with no inline controls the issue is fixed.
Wish it included a second cable without it. But becasue of the way the mic is intagrated with the cable it would most likely raise the price of the unit too much. Assuming the mic is about the same quiclity as the base GMR it wouldnt even be worth it and hopfully a vmoda boom pro will work as a replacement mic/cable. But that raises what your paying so the value aspect may no longer be as good.
Still would love to check it out.
