Interesting impressions Shane. By the way I'm giving the list on the first post of the thread a bit of an update to make things a bit more compact and organized.

Good comparison pic. They are tiny. I loved the fit.

ROCKETS Kickstarter started looks like the $99 early bird units are all gone.

When I get my rockets I plan on comparing to asg2 and re400s. Which according to kickstarter should be sometime next month

I'll have my own line of comparisons...  Not sure exactly which headphones will be compared to, but it'll be a wide variety.  Here's a running list though:

  • ACS T15: one of my favorites, would be one of my go-to's if it wasn't for the darn cable that is bent into a memory effect x 1 million.  Follows the signature that Dale stated for the rockets, just about word for word.  They are tiny like the Rockets too with Kevlar cables (probably not to the extremes Aurisonics does it though).  
  • Aurisonics ASG-1 (1.3 rev): an obvious one that should be compared.  It sounds like the ASG-1 has the Rocket signature put to a larger extreme.  Either way, they're both in the Aurisonics' family and at only 50 dollars more, will make for a good comparison.
  • Dunu DN-1000: interesting new hybrid from Dunu.  Not sure if I'll do this one though.
  • Etymotic HF5: classic comparison for a DF reference set.
  • HiFiMan RE-400: Aurisonics' is known for good quality for the price, HiFiMan's RE-400 is deemed to be king of value on these forums and stated to be able to muscle out IEMs twice its price, at times a little more than twice.  What?!  The Rockets are a little more than twice its price?
  • HiFiMan RE-600: if we include little brother, we have to include big brother.  Both hold similar signatures too!  If Aurisonics can reproduce the RE-600's signature (lows and mids) with a bumped treble regions, we'll have a winner.
  • Logitech UE 900: closest thing we have to replicating the RE-600's signature with bumped treble.  Doesn't quite do it though in the bass and mids...  Darn.  We'll see how it compares to the less costly Rocket.
  • Phonak PFE232: somewhat stupid-expensive dual-drivered IEM with a v-shape.  Yet, it does a great job reproducing music, just as well as most neutral and warm 'phones.  
  • Westone W4R: this is a Head-Fi favorite.  Generally does little wrong and a well perceived IEM to listen to.  It has no standout strengths though.  

 

All of these may not be done, but I'll try to get them in ;)  If anyone else wants another comparison, let me know.

This will be our thing. biggrin.gif

Just pawn the SR-009 for like $50 after you do the comparison and get an MH1. Sheesh. It's not Rockets science. tongue.gif

Excellent suggestion! I might just do that!

Anyone know anything about upgrading from ASG2 to ASG2.5?

post #3583 of 3603
I've asked Aurisonics directly as I am seriously considering adding a S2, which is based on G2.5. I'll respond when I hear back from them.
post #3584 of 3603

I've also asked and am waiting on a response. They said they hadn't worked it out yet, but that was a few weeks ago. 

post #3585 of 3603
I just asked yesterday... they must have it worked out as they said the S2 was based on the G2.5.
