Shotgunshane preferred ROCKETS over the ASG-1, ASG-2 or the IE800

Mysterious looking little devil ain't it.

Looks dynamic microdriver-based. Even though it could possibly be Knowles SR, I doubt it's BA, because Aurisonics doesn't like them. They were already very reluctant to use BAs on the AS/ASG-2. Doesn't matter, though. If it's a low-cost model (which it should be), a dynamic microdriver is better for cost/performance ratio. This thing looks like it can rival the ACS T15 (a.k.a. Dynamic Ear Company DS-11) in size. But there's already something smaller (just not marketed by anyone yet).

Maybe their tuning will be more audiophile friendly.. rather than stage monitor type of honky sound.

Is this an IEM or a hearing protection related device?

Looks probable, like so many constructors as Etymotic, EarSonics, Westone...

The launch was delayed and we're instructed to watch space. It's obviously a rocket.

No, you guys have it all wrong. It's OBVIOUSLY some sort of  deep sea exploration device, as evidenced by the oxygen line going into the engine compartment, and the revolutionary clear propulsion system. It also seems to be inspired by the male anatomy as well, given the strikingly phallic shape of the main body that gives rise to two distinct projections.

 

I can't wait to put it in my ears.

One thing about Aurisonics is that they are always innovating.

I'm surprised that it's even leaked into the public. :ph34r:

 

 

 

Anyways it said that they're holding a competition on facebook where whoever can guess the right driver configuration, can win one of two of their pre-released version of their new firearms. :wink_face:

LOL you dirty, dirty man.


I, for one, really hope this isn't an earplug of sorts - hope it's a great new IEM!

Apparently it is indeed a plug, but catering to the specificities of the nether regions rather than the ears.
