The Crystal has a huge advantage in the form lower bass quantity, and I agree - it does have very good quality bass overall. The H3 isn't as tight, but it's not far behind and the bass is a lot more powerful.

Yes, you can. Not sure what that does to the cable noise and such, and the fit definitely won't be as secure.

Will the sound be the same

 i dont think it will degrade but instruments will be flipped .

If the fit is not the same does that mean the sound won't be either

  yes , if the fit is not good , if the seal is not there , sound will suffer . i dont think swapping channels will affect fit .

It really depends on whether your ear shape will allow an equally deep seal.

Have you tried it straight down

No, I had no problem wearing them the right way. I did try the PFE232 down but the fit just wasn't as secure as cable-up.

Did you think the sound was the same when you wore the 232 down

@Joker, I just recommended the team at Aurisonics to send u a review unit of the Rockets after they fulfill their shipping quota from kickstarter. It needs to be on that chart for all to marvel at. I soundly believe they top the CK10 (past owner) and a few customs on the merits of your scoring system. Keep up the good work.

Ahh, but do they beat the ckr series? ;) (despite them being different sound signatures)

 

I'm more curious on the altone vs rockets comparison though. Hopefully joker obtains one.

 

Either way that aurosonic rocket is amazing, and definitely deserves to be reviewed someday. :)

Yes I am interested in this comparison also. I'd really like Joker to review the ath ckr series. Currently they are hands down my best IEM beating the likes of my UE900 too.

Sorry to go a bit off topic, but I was hoping somebody with BA experience can solve a prob for me. I was listening to my PFE111s yesterday when the left channel suddenly dropped in vol. (bout half as loud as the right). First thing I did was change filters, no joy. I though since it was fairly hot and humid that maybe some moisture/sweat got in so I tossed them in a jar with a packet of silica. Still didn't help. While I was trrying to figure out what to do next, I cranked the volume waaay up, and after a bit of a click/pop the left channel was back to normal. Been playing fine since, but I was hoping someone could maybe explain what might have happened, and if its anything to worry about.

Cheers

I don't remember noticing a difference. I was using them with Complys.

Definitely not a good sign. Sounds like a mechanical problem with the armature but I can't say I've ever experience the same.
