 I was #17 on the backer list.  Dale made a post a while ago that they were doing mostly white cable standard color, because that's what they had the most parts of and didn't want to ruin their small stock of black cable and specialty coatings (makes sense since it's the only retail combo) so those of us with crazy combos have had to wait a bit longer.  Thanks, I am super happy with the looks.  I know!
THEY DO EXIST!!!!!!!!!!!!   Just got my black and gold Mic Rockets.  SOOOO happy since my other sets had long been given to my family that ordered them along with me.          
After finally getting to spend some time with rockets I agree they could use more bass, but I'm a basshead.  It's not that they can't handle it though.  I built a Viper4Android profile that upped the bass a fair amount and the rockets will really pump out some good clean bass without it muddling into the mids.  I use that profile on most of my hip hop/pop/edm kind of tunes and then use them unaltered for classical etc...  That's one of the great things about a neutral...
You guys and your impressions are killing me!  I ordered my rockets for a series of long trips this summer and am about to come up on my last one, sans good iems.  I guess being backer #18 wasn't quite quick enough since I had to go with non-standard colors.
 Right now all we have to go on is the test videos of the Rockets and their warranty - I'll give you that.  It doesn't take long to find multiple reviews on the RHA's to find people with cable issues though (granted not a ton, but they are still there).  As much as I have loved my Sure e3c's and other more moderately priced iem's it seems as though eventually it always comes down to one ear not working.  I hope 5 years from now we can all say we have used and abused our...
 I wouldn't confuse heft with build quality.  From what we've seen on Rockets they are likely to be the most durable IEM on the market at any price point. Audio wise though, I look forward to a lot more folks getting these and seeing comparisons with more iems in the $250-$350+ range.  It seems like right now the direct comparisons are to much cheaper iems than the Rockets will actually cost once released to the public.
Did you do black and gold?  I am still waiting and I was backer 17 or 18
Joe are you using the HQ or standard driver on the V4A install?  Do you find it makes a big difference in SQ or battery life?
Question for those of you who have them already, based on Dale's recent update, are you seating them in the "casual" or "deep" configuration?   I will be going for maximum isolation on these on airplane rides, so I'm curious to see how much better the isolation and bass are when worn deeper in the ear with the smaller tips.
I was one of the early supersteal orders and mine haven't shipped yet, so I wouldn't get too anxious.
