Rockit Sounds R-50 Reviews and Impressions - Page 13

post #181 of 1166

Ok after reading about some of the Dunu IEM's and seeing that they work with Top Sound OEM and the person people are in contact with is named Rocky I think that he's the same guy from Rockit Sounds also named Rocky.  I don't know if that mean they get their IEM's from Top Sound to or what but Rocky has to be the same person from both companies.

I know how the peaks will change, what peaks will flatten out, and which ones won't. It's actually quite predictable.

 

 

Tom, with the BA drivers, is the tubular size difference and filters would affect the acoustic damping (thus impedance) of the final phones? or is just a matter of increasing or taming down certain frequency, playing with phase difference?

No, I doubt it. I'd know something if that were the case. Rocky from DUNU-Topsound is based in Taipei with production in China, and RockItSounds is in Guam (?) with a factory in HK.

This is a big thing to explain. The easiest way to understand it is to read through these technical bulletins. You can also PM me.

LOL I anticipate meeting Rocky from DUNU in a week or two, so I'll just ask him, "Hey, do you happen to be moonlighting for a company thousands of miles away from you?"

Yes, the RockItSounds website is supported by GuamWEBZ, which certainly indicate that they are from Guam, but it doesn't rule out that the two Rocky's are not the same, but great if you can ask him (them) !

 

Anyway, what's more important, I really hope that other HF members will try out the R-50 and I would like to hear about how they experience this relatively cheap TWFK based IEM.

My latest love has been Shure fullsize headphones, SRH-940 and lately SRH-1440 (prefer the slightly warmer tone and slightly more prominent bass of the 1440 but the 940 wins for overall detail). Has anyone owning these or the GR01 heard either of those headphones and if so how you would you say they compare? If not those phones, has anyone had any of the ETY HF series IEM's and again how would these compare (in this case sonically and more importantly comfort wise as I am not a big fan of deep insertion from a comfort perspective)?

 

I am struggling with waiting until the GR08 comes out or trying these. Personally if they are close to the Shure headphones sound wise, these might be the better bet for me.

Insanity abounds...

 

Curiosity got the best of me and I ordered a pair of the R-50. I hope they end up being an excellent alternative to my Shures. But will certainly be posting comments one way or the other :-). I am going to have to have a clearing house sale pretty soon I think...

I use to have the Ety HF5's and both the R-50 and GR01 sound much better imo.  All 3 have great detail but the R-50 and GR07 have a much larger and well rounded sounddtage along with a warmer presentation so the never get fatiguing.  

 

As for fit and comfort all 3 are comfortable to me, after a few minutes I don't even feel the R-50 and the GR01 again is about the same they're both fairly small IEM's.  I had a hard time wearing the GR01 over the ears the worked much better down while the R-50 works perfect over the ears.  Isolation is the same between the 2, you can get a deep insertion with both.

 

After my comparison of the R-50 and GR01 I feel the R-50 is a better value as they both sound pretty much the same and the Rockit Sounds is $60 cheaper but both sound great.

Yea the R-20 uses a Knowles Siren driver and I don't know what the R-30 is but I think its the same as whats in Fischer Audio's DBA-01.

The sba-01 is meant to be avert nice earphone. I think the r-30 should be picked up by someone to try. They could be a right bargain.

I'm going to get the R-20 sometime hear soon because I'd like to hear how its tuned compared to the MEE A151 and Soundmagics PL-50.  Why don't you pick up a pair of the R-30's Swim or have ordered one of the others already.

post #195 of 1166

FA SBA-01 ?? that also uses a Siren.  

didnt you mean the SBA-03 ?
