Rockit Sounds R-50 Reviews and Impressions - Page 35

post #511 of 1166
OK so im seeing all these comparisons vs. the Rockit R-50... But how do they compare to the Audio Technica CK10? Anyone?

I'm really thinking about buying the R-50 since my CK10 needs to be repaired.

Got the R-50s in. As everyone else has said, the stock tips are pretty flimsy. I got a much better seal with the gray tips from the Shure tip pack at Earphone Solutions, although these tips are a little hard to get on (barrel diameter is a little small). However, the upper mids and treble are awfully powerful with these tips, more than I want to EQ out. I know I'll do much better with foam tips to absorb some of the highs and bring out the bass as that's what I had to do with ER4Ps. Got the Comply T-200 multipack because it seems like they probably have the right barrel diameter.

 

Thoughts on how they sound after I get the foamies smile.gif

How do the R-50 compare to the UM3X?

The Comply T-200s tips were too big. Does any know if the T-100 or TX-100 fit?

The 100's are the next size smaller i think, so they should.

I was hoping someone could confirm it. I have some of ERs foamies for the ER4P, which has a very similar barrel width, and I cannot get them to go on the R-50s.

Here is some input from H2OFidelity to make tips fit when they are too big for the nozzle:

I can confirm that the 100's do fit the R-50

Over the ear IEMs will never be as comfortable as straight down style IEMs.  Fortunately, the R-50 can be worn in a straight down position.  To do so effectively and comfortably, I wear the right earphone on my left ear and the left earphone on my right ear.  This way, the earphone-ear ergonomics work as intended by the designer(s).  I tried this a few days ago, and seeing that I had a perfect fit, I now wear my R-50 in a straight down position.

hi people

i'm not getting a good isolation with the r-50, i can easily hear the whole noise in the street. cant get a good seal neither.

any suggestions??

 

thanks!

 

BTW, these sound AMAZING! a truly great BA biggrin.gif

If your not getting isolation or a seal then they will not be sounding properly, i recommend getting some new tips for this and paying around until you get a seal.

post #523 of 1166

what you recommend? 

 

(i already posted a WTB for some eartips)

post #524 of 1166

Well, anything that has worked with past IEMs i guess, i cant tell you what tips are good for your ears, then last resort would be custom tips of course!

post #525 of 1166

I found that the grey tips in the Shure kit worked better than the cheap flimsy ones that come with the R-50s.  But of course foam generally gives you the most isolation.
