It's a Reshell and 3 drivers upgrade from Unique Melody. Since they said they've never see this headphone before, I have to tell them which driver(s) it was (TWFK x2) and how I want it to be upgraded. I basically tell them I want Knowles CI-22955 added. I want subbass, but stays neutral like the headphone is. And they freaking perfected it! 

 

I paid ~$400, ear impression and shipping costs included.

Nice going there ... My rockits have been reshelled. but 400 dolls is a bit too much to pay to add 40 dollar drivers. But, I am pretty sure UM did quality work on reshelling.

No subbass for me as well.... I think the Shure SE cables I got contributes certainly to it as well, may be search another cable.

I suggest having a read of the new Dunu Titan 1 dynamic. Though if isolation is important it's not for you due to the design. Having owned R-50, Brainwavz B2 offers a similar sound or Vsonic VC1000.

Here's the Titan thread which I would class a direct upgrade from R-50.

R-50, Brainwavz B2 and Vsonic VC1000 all share the Knowles TWFK driver, they are configured differently, but it would lead me to take the Dunu Titan.

How could I make this iems more fuller sounding whilst adding dynamism and slightly more impactful bass?

 

Thanks for your help

I use mine with Etymotic Gray Foam tips with a FIIO E17 USB AMP\DAC.  I kick the bass up a couple notches on the E17 and I am super happy.  I mostly listen to HipHop, RnB, and some Pop.

For me the most important is big soundstage with excellent separation, any info on these iems?

Soon will receive Havi B3 Pro I and compare with my Rock It Sounds R-50.

Please look into the Duoza review posted by Twister6. He describes a notably wide soundstage and separation, given his collection of gear I think its rather definite.

if you are looking for tips to use with these, the Shure foam sleeves fit, I find them more durable and then the comply tips

I still have not found an IEM/CIEM that beats the Rock-it Sounds R50 in clarity and detail retrieval. Even with the UERMs, the R-50 is more crystal clear.

post #1182 of 1185

I've only skimmed this thread so apologies if this is redundant, but does anyone know which filter types are in the R50? Has anyone tried replacing them with other colors?

post #1183 of 1185

Does anyone know what happend to topdogheadphones.com? My Rock-It R-50 started playing at lower volumes and propably without ceratin frequencies, depenind on position of the cable right behind the jack. I suspect only one driver for each ear is playing when it occurs. So i wanted to send it to RMA since it is still under warranty. But the site is gone and i cannot find any info about it...
