Considering that Sony plans to keep the “starting” price from 10,000, it is likely that it will launch multiple products. Inspecting the price range, it looks like the company will take on serious players including Jabra, Audio-Technica, Klipsch, JAYs, and more. This means that the lower end market is safe for the time being.
