>as to why - no idea, probably uploaded the pics a while ago when rdb was pre prod and wanted to show alt design options
or maybe if you order a custom fit, they do use bores - idk.
Rhapsodio and Tralucent used to be partners.
Rhapsodio sold the RDB
Tralucent sold the 1plus2 (rev1)
They were identical.
You are reviewing the RDB+, a new product.
Anakchan reviewed the 1plus2 (rev2) which has been changed since the break up to a new product made in the Tralucents own place in comparison to them both using the same supplier.
Doesn't change my post about what they actually picture on their web site or that they are by available info, different now. Haven't heard either so it's not a qualitative post.
My thinking as well. One if them is a universlal. They should update.
I have all my hopes for this thread on Anakachan (or others who can compare both iems without prejudice) ... People just couldn't believe the $500 RDB+ when they smell linkages with a $1k+ product.
No I haven't heard the 1+2. But all I see in this threads are people trying to prove they are not related / not related any more. Where are the sound impressions? Where are the sound comparisons? Man this is a joke.
On another hand, I read Anakachan's review on the 1Plus2 and hmm it does relate to my experience with the RDB+, where he said he desires a bit more mids, and we both agree on how detailed the respective IEM's can get. Got me interested in hearing the 1Plus2.
Ok if it will make you happy I can do that right now. When I listen to them side by side. The old 1Plus2 sounds muffled and lacking in detail in comparison. The bass sounds bloated or overly exaggerated in comparison. The Treble and mids sound as if they are straining in comparison to how the rev 2 1Plus2 sounds. It sounds as if the new 1Plus2 is working effortlessly and so natural at the same time in presenting it's detail. It's a laid back and neutral sound yet even more detailed than an IEM with a boosted frequency response. To be quite frank the new 1Plus2 will make many IEMs (if not most) sound muffled in comparison. I feel the older 1Plus2 sound stage maybe even bigger than the newer version (depending on the tracks) but placement isn't as precise as the newer unit. The revised unit has pinpoint accuracy in its sound stage, it's uncanny and the separation is crazy good on them. Also the speed of the revised unit is super fast. I mean stuff can happen so fast you can even have a hard time keeping up with the drivers, seriously. Plus with the newer unit it images in front of you. Where I can close my eyes and picture the band on stage in front of me.
When I don't compare them directly I still very much enjoy the older model. Its a fun and bassy signature that isn't lacking in detail IMO. As a matter of fact I still prefer the older 1Plus2 version to the Fit Ear 334 and AKG3003.
if your comparing the new 1p2 to the old one then your comparing the new 1p2 to the RDB. They have been reviewing the new RDB + which is also said to be better than the old RDB (1p2). Only 500 bones as well!
Do you listen to One Direction and Beiberman too mate by any chance?
Taylor Swift, and now Carly Rae Jepson...what's next?
