Rockit Sounds R-50 Reviews and Impressions - Page 66

post #976 of 1166

hi,
I received my pair yesterday and the sound quality is stunning. The guitars sound exceptional, the separation is very good.

Not sure if the cable over-my-ears will be comfortable for me (big ears owner). I do like the separation they offer.

They revealed quality issues of my rockboxed classic 6g and some of the records (cant do nothing about it at the moment) and i did not expect so big gap between them and my previous soundmagic pl50. 


Although the right speaker is noticeably quieter. So much that its not comfortable, and the balance must be changed to ~~ 10-15% (which i do not consider as a solution because not all of my devices have such settings etc). 

I've send notice  to the topdogheadphones about the mismatch, and now I'm waiting...  It's a pity because I like the sound. Anybody had such issue ?

oh, probably not this or just about any BA IEM.  id assume you want a very capable low end capability.  the R-50 is waaaay more about accuracy than it is an air mover.

 

actually my suggestion would be something cooler but bassy, C751 would be my first choice, TF10 (if you can drive it well) 2nd.  of what you mention id make an educated guess of the GR07 bass.  (not heard it or the mk2 but neither of the re400 or B2 would be what id think your after)

How does the R-50 sounds with a song like this http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=1338T5ur9EA ?

I just got these in the mail. (A lot faster than expected.) I was replacing my HF5s with them. With the Ety triflanges, they sound good. etysmile.gif

 

I'm keeping them.

I bring you good news R-50 fans!

I have been speaking with Billy from Noisy Motel, it seems your calls for better build quality have been answered, there is a revised R-50 being released very soon, namely the memory wire coming away from the housing. Billy said hopefully he will have the new version in stock when he orders the next batch, so I expect new owners will be receiving these soon too.

what do you mean by "the memory wire coming away from the housing"? does that mean there won't be a memory wire at all?

post #982 of 1166

the problem was the cable actually coming out of the left monitor. the memory wire wasn't an issue for me

I don't know exactly what's being done with the revision, we didn't go that far in depth during our conversation, I'll see if I can find out for you guys. I assume the problems will be addressed though.

Well guys, don't be a dumbass like me and destory these fine IEMs.  I took off the ear guides and thought, "Hey!  Some super glue would be great for the wire near the housing to increase the stability and character of the wiring!"  And the glue seeped into the nossil ruined the sound.  I suck :(  Guess I will have to wait for the updated R-50 now...

Is there a way to remove Super Glue?

Haha, it was one of those moments where you just step back and think, "what the hell was I thinking?".  Really unfortunate too, because I had not been using my R-50s for a while due to my hate of the ear guides and finally decided to try and remove them.  I removed them with ease, spent all day falling back in love with the sound, and then at night decided that I should make them more durable... with super glue o_O

Don't feel so bad about it. First, it is not so easy to think that the glue could get into the nozzle. Second, those who don't take risks in life, never accomplish anything important. Third, I thought about doing something similar and now, I know better. Thank you for letting us know.

If you don't ask, you never find out the prom queen is a nymphomaniac. (True. Story.)
