RICHMOND, BC, May 31, 2022 /PRNewswire/ — The innovative and world-leading audio brand Edifier has picked up three awards at the prestigious Visual Grand Prix (VGP) 2022 in Japan: the brand new STAX Spirit S3 headphones were both a Gold Award and Special Prize Winner, whilst the NeoBuds Pro earbuds received the Grand Prize.
Known as the "Oscar in the Audio Industry", the Japanese VGP Awards is the largest, most authoritative audio-visual awards in Asia. It is held on an annual-basis by Ongen Publishing Co., ltd., one of the most prominent publishing companies in Japan with an expertise in audio/visual related devices and state-of-art technologies. Launched in 1987, the awards bring together respected reviews from dozens of countries, all to offer an authoritative reference guide for ordinary consumers looking to make informed purchases. The VGPs are often recognized as the highest authority award in Asia’s audiovisual industry and mark a significant recognition for Edifier’s groundbreaking work in the industry.
"It’s always an immense privilege to receive accolades for our products, but receiving awards such as these, from a panel as prestigious as that found at the VGP Awards, is truly rewarding. As a company, we work extremely hard to be at the forefront of the audio-visual industry and our designers, testers and staff are incredibly proud to be recognized for this; especially when it comes from one of the most well-respected awards around," said Stanley Wen, Edifier’s CTO.
