Rooth-Null Audio Elpis 2-drivers hybrid custom IEM

post #1 of 122
Thread Starter 

This morning I woke up and I saw this

 

http://store.treoo.com/main/rooth-null-audio-elpis-2-drivers-hybrid-custom-in-ear-monitor.html#.UXSaNcpWVp4

The price is astonishing especially for the preorder... 200SGD (equivalent to 160USD), which I believe is really cheap for a custom, particularly a dual driver.

Anyone wants to jump in and take the bait?

I like how cheap it is, but right now it is difficult for me to execute that "leap of faith" for that custom when the graph looks worrying

I am not an expert of graphs, but if the graph is to be believed, it has a v-shaped signature similar to the TF10 I believe, since the graph seems to point at a dip in the midrange

 

However, lets not jump into conclusions too quickly, and believe our leap of faith is right

Hybrids appear to be the most popular trend in modern mid/high iem/ciem models.  I'd love to see round ups and comparisons of all the models available.

I think the graphs looks ok. Quite good actually. U shaped but no significant peaks or dips.

Did you all check the extra bassport option? and also I'm most likely getting the universal version instead of the custom one. Also, can you find any review or unboxing on this product? Thanks.

Its completely new hence the special price. And I ordered one with bass port, at most i'll use it as a sport iem, and use lune cable with something else :P

Well share your reviews here once you get it

 

Wonder how it will turn out for one heck of a cheap custom IEM

Well there is a brand known as cosmic ears and they have some pretty good reviews on their customs which are considered pretty cheap so... crossing my fingers on this smily_headphones1.gif

Had a brief audition of the elpis demo (Non-vented version), first impressions, WOW for those of you who have bought it at 199, it was a steal firstly. Bass is prominent and has the typical characteristic of the bass of a dynamic driver, bass is looser than that of a balanced armature. Mids were clean and present, treble was also good but its a smooth kind of treble. FOR ITS PRICE of 199, ITS A STEAL :D. I sadly only had 5 minutes with the demo version but nevertheless i was impressed :D. BTW its really bassy IMHO without the vent :D
