Rhapsodio RDB+ 2v1 review, impressions and appreciation thread.

post #1 of 81
Thread Starter 
Rhapsodio released a new model a couple of weeks ago - RDB+ 2v1

It's a balanced armature (TWFK) + dynamic driver hybrid, with a balanced type of a sound signature, that can be had as a universal or custom IEM.

You can find the frequency response chart here (bottom half)

Seeing how the naming is similar to the old 'fun' sounding RDB+ v1 and the misc Rhapsodio thread is full of all sorts of things, let's have a new impressions and review aggregation thread.



We'll open with Anakchan's review. You can also read the tech specs in his review or in the link above smily_headphones1.gif
and here's my review smily_headphones1.gif
and shotgunshane's

A pair of these is also on the way to Australia for to be passed around and appreciated, along with a sweet looking Shozy PX-M1 amps.

If I recall correctly the current Australian tour order is:

me (on its way here)
->mradrian (2w)
->h20 (2w)
->djvkool (2w)
-> audionewbi (2w)

if you want to come along - please PM me or email Rhapsodio biggrin.gif

It's possible there might be a US version of the tour. You can inquire with Shane


So if you bought bought a pair - let people know how you like it below smily_headphones1.gif!

I'm eagerly waiting for the demo pair to compare it my TPEOS H-200 that's also on the way biggrin.gif

The parcel has arrived.

The cable is a Shure type one with a pretty CF plug (someone can probably point out what plug biggrin.gif ). There is a cloth sheath on it, but it tangles into strange shapes.

I quite like the way the shure type IEM to cable connectors feel, probably more than recessed sockets. (anyone use replaceable cable shure sexx5 series and want to comment on long term usability?)

The amp is a PX-M1, it's slightly shorter than a cowon d2, but slimmer and about the same width.
Very good looking amp...

The 2v1 look to have a redesigned vent. It's now near the socket but very small. I didn't notice it at first looking from a certain angle (thought it was part of a socket biggrin.gif ) - that's a very welcome change from my point smily_headphones1.gif












sorry for the flash dark out of focus pics smily_headphones1.gif - turns out nexus is a lot worse than old sony phone at macro in these conditions frown.gif

I've received the RDB+ 2v1 a few days ago. Still experimenting with tips and sources. I should have some impressions up in a few days.

This pair will be going on a USA tour and include a Shozy px-m1 portable amp as well. The amp thread is here: http://www.head-fi.org/t/661881/rhapsodio-shozy-px-m1-portable-amp-tour
Current tour members are listed there.

Here is a quick picture:

Had my eye on these for a little while. Almost bought them. Went with 1p2 instead. Still interested.

That's possible. I'll keep put you down for a potential Canada tour.
