The best IEM I've heard under $1000

Posted

Pros: Bass, Treble, Soundstage & Presentation, Build Quality and Customisation

Cons: Slightly Recessed Mids and Not Neutral

Before writing this review, I would like to thank Charles for generously sending out multiple IEMs and amplifiers for us to try and review. Charles is also one of the friendliest and most responsive guys that I have met in the audio world and often responds to emails in a few minutes. This is something that I take into account when buying any product, especially one at this price. I am in no way affiliated with nor against Rhapsodio in any way so these are my own, unbiased opinions on the Rhapsodio RDB v1 IEM.   Introduction Rhapsodio is a relatively new company to the audio world and they’ve already caused quite a stir on Head-Fi with their interesting products which have been...

Impressions of RDB+ 2v1 (baby bro of the RDB+ v1)

Posted

Pros: Great value for money, comfortable, compact

Cons: average soundstage, with some tracks it lacking bass

Introduction   The Rhapsodio RDB+ 2v1 (formerly known as RDP+ v2) is the baby brother of the RDB+ v1. It's still a 2xBA & 1xDD but instead of a 10mm driver that the older brother has, it sports an 8mm driver instead. As such the overall shell of the RDB+ 2v1 is smaller. In addition, the sound of the RDB+ 2v1 isn't necessarily a successor of the RDB+ v1. Talking to the makers, the RDB+ 2v1 is meant to have a more accurate sound signature, a goal of which I feel they have achieved.   Design & Ergonomics As can be seen, this isn't a very big IEM. Used with Ortofon tips, it fits snugly and comfortably in my ears and don't protrude out that much. Despite...

Rreally Ddynamic Bbass PLUS a lot of other great things

Posted

Pros: Bass is very well tubed, articulate yet punchy. Nothing muddy, nothing insufficient. A very big success!

Cons: Mids are not as forward as I would've liked. Borderline recessed: see my review below for explanations

Rhapsodio RDB+ Hybrid:   Is it named after Rhapsodio's Dynamic BA, or for its Really Dynamic Bass?!   Disclaimer: Rhapsodio's RDB+ is a really fantastic sounding IEM, the best IEM I have heard actually. However I do not have a lot of iem's as I am more of a headphone headfier. Hence in my review I will focus on the sonic performance of the RDB+ instead of any comparisons unless requested. Most listening are done by my Sflo:2 LO -> TTVJ Slim, critical judgement from my NFB5.2 and casually from my iPod 3rd gen.   Build Quality, Comfort, Sound isolation etc. To cut it short, very comfortable, better isolation compared to what I own (GR07, TF10), and...

Exceptionally pleasant fun sounding universal custom hybrid with plenty of detail

Posted

Pros: 'hearbeat like' bass you can feel, ample detail in the mids and highs. Choice of sockets, faceplate material and colors.

Cons: Acrylic universal - durability and potentially fit/isolation. Wind noise at the vent. Probably bass-forward, or not as mids forward as some would like

Rhapdsodio RDB+ vs some current hybrid IEMs. Rhapsodio sent us some gear for the Sydney 2013 Jan meet/to review after. The review skims over some gear used, what I look for in IEM sound [in case it's not what you look for ] a bit of info about Rhapsodio itself, and general/quick info about RDB+, before going into detail, so skip as appropriate if you're not in a reading mood It also includes some musings on accumulated experiences of using custom universals for about a year now, so if you're not into that - my apologies. Likewise, please excuse the the poor pic quality - the ones not supplied by Rhapsodio mostly turned out bad - new camera/last minute pics. [and no appropriate...
