Rooth demos: the evaluation of Rooth lineup – liquid clarity - Page 9

post #121 of 189
The carbon faceplates are on the 1plus2 (blue left, red right), the plain blue and red faceplates are the LS8+. I did the comparison as the 1plus2 is considered by many, to be a very comfortable universal. I certainly find it comfortable (despite my small ears)... but you can see how un-flush / unergonomic it is, when compared against the LS8+.

Several days / nights of listening are revealing the LS8+ to be very, very refined. The overall resolution is the highest I've heard, with a liquidity and effortless that makes the AUD-8X, and 1plus2, sound comparatively aggressive. It's a very inviting signature.

They insert pretty deep - past the second bend - so require a second twist upon insertion (a first for me). See how much longer the canal is than the 4-way AUD-8X:



I can therefore imagine a noticeable difference between the universal demo units and custom versions (as described by Avergage_Joe in initial review).

Sounds like you really like them!

I do indeed. Although it's too early to make rational judgements about technical ability, I know for sure that I like them... a lot. I increasingly find myself indulging in the music, rather than analysing particular aspects of the sound - something I've not done for a while!

Will have the review when it is burned in. But the sound is remarkable.

I have to send it back to the distributor next week when I have time, the left ear has some fit issues. It leaks a bit when I turn my head to the right side. Anyway the sound is great when the seal is perfect.
