So uh... I come back from vacation having spent some pretty decent money and I see that the gears of the hype machine are whirring back up. Splendid :l

Few quick questions:
Shallow insertion?
Potential lack of strain relief issues?
Any annoyances with insertion or removal?
Targeted market?

It is a very nifty design. And I am in favor of anything inspired by rockets.

Aaand launch website is down?

Depends on your ear but I used deeper insertion. They are tiny, deeper insertion isn't difficult. Easy to remove as well, and most importantly, it was very comfortable, if not forgettable in the ear.

Don't worry about strain reliefs. Aurisonics will produce some videos of the durability of the housings and cable. It's military durable.

Target market is both consumer and audiophile. Something that can be used from child to adult to outdoor active. The reduced sensitivity is a plus for children and for the audiophile market.

I'll forever cherish the moments of repartee we shared Mimouille. Forever.

Thanks. I hope they go flatter with the tuning. I'm really enjoying neutralish sound these days.

I am flattered but most of all love the fact that you used the word repartee. I love French words used in English. Exchanging repartee during a rendez-vous over croissant in a boudoir.

Forgot to answer your tuning question. I have no idea which direction they'll go but I must have pointed 3 or 4 times saying which I preferred.

That being said, I heard the bassier one first and my very first thought was, this is better than the ie800.

Anyway I wouldn't call the flatter one neutral. It still has the Aurisonics family sound but it's the most refined and midcentric Aurisonics sig to date.
post #38 of 931
So is the bass on these still tilted towards midbass, or is there a more even keeled split between mid/sub?

Also curious whether you recall any issues with cable noise. Definitely agree on the tri prong outer shell being rather ingenious. They seem really comfy
post #39 of 931
I thought the bass was more evenly keeled.

The prototypes didn't have the finalized cable, so can't comment on microphonics.

I'm always interested in midcentric IEMs.  I also like the concept of something tiny... Someday I might meet a universal that approaches the comfort of a custom.

How risqué...
And me too.

Haha operation supraliminal messaging is a-go.

Still sounds great.

suppose to be coming out 1/3/14 right? Get excited?

 

Sorry for being to lazy to read thru the 4 pages, but anyone know anything? :basshead:

post #43 of 931

I'm willing to be an early adopter with these.  SGS - did Dale express having two tuned versions of the Rocket?  Like you, I would prefer for a more flat tuning.

 

Damn,  that's the first I heard Dale's voice.  Didn't know he had such a thick southern accent.   His Rocket campaign video is very well done.

post #44 of 931
My understanding was there would only be one tuning/version.
post #45 of 931

Correct only one tuning one version. Hello, sorry been away for a while our team has been working on some really cool new stuff. Of course now you know about ROCKETS. They are pretty amazing to be so small. They use our new 5.1mm micro-dynamic driver which is full range. As Shotgunshane has mentioned has a beautifully refined sound signature. They are really for anything you want to do as the video says. We decided to do a Kickstarter campaign to bring awareness to our brand and new line of IEMs that are more consumer friendly and not just for the Pros. However, we wanted to take consumer products to a new level so we went with a complete Titanium shell and the new cables have three layers of Kevlar so they are super strong yet very soft. You can use them with or without the little tri-tab which does an amazing job at comfortably holding them in your ears when you need more IEM retention. I look forward to your questions about ROCKETS...
