At this rate, until BA subwoofers can be smaller and maintain the same acoustic energy. I would say 9 drivers would be the max, I may be wrong. I wouldn't even know what the 9th driver would be, midrange? 4 bass, 3 midrange and 2 treble...

for those interested, there are a few Rooth LS6 reviews I managed to find. 

 

They're all in Chinese so reading them with google translate is a bit of a pain, but you get an idea of what they compare to.

 

LS6 vs UE11pro:

 Rooth is a relatively new brand in China,but the comapny itself have been in china's custom IEM market for many years. They are,actually,a bigger name than UM in China

 

 LS 8 is the first chinese 8 driver custom IEM i think,but the engineer who designed it left the company and founded another brand already.

 

 Their build quality seems really fine for the price tag,just don't expect it to be as good as JH16 pro though.

Haowai, thanks for the info. Don't want to be skeptical, but what are your sources for the info? And what is the name of the new brand?

 

Also, I can't really compare the 8s to the JH16s as I've never heard the 16s. Whereas I own a pair of 13s so I can compare.

 

Also making blanketed comments without backing up does not hold a lot of weight on this site. I'm not saying you are wrong about the LS 8 and the JH 16 comparison, but you might want to

add a bit more information than a one line statement.

 

Thanks again.

i am a Chinese and  there are a quite a lot information about the custom IEM makers at bbs.erji.com , the web is in Chinese of cause.

 

this is Rooth's thread http://bbs.erji.com/read.php?tid=553856

 

and here is orginal designer's new brand http://www.erji.net/read.php?tid=830208

 

this is the top rated brand: thousand sound  http://bbs.erji.com/read.php?tid=520827

 

 

don't get me wrong,i am not  trying to say LS8 is not good,actually i am really happy that people from other countries would consider get a Chinese customs,and i hope you enjoy it

 

just this 8 drivers thing is still new and sound tuning can be very complicated,it is widely accepted for us (Chinese customers) that our local brands is not at the same level as UE and JH,but they are getting there. i will translate a LS8 review later when i have time.

haowai ... i think your opinions and knowledge of the chinese custom IEM market is a really important contribution to this site. Anything you can add and translate would be great. This would begin to open up beyond just UE and JH, which are great, but to push the envelope in development beyond just two companies makes for a better listening world.

 

 

Keep em coming!
