Are there lettered "L/R" markers as well, or just the red/blue?

They're being remade and will be shipped later because the cable diameter was larger then originally planned if memory serves.

Okay that explains a lot, thanks!

The Y-split has "AS" initials in lower case, so you could use those as your marker. A for left and S for right. Although that might be slow going. Otherwise no other markings.

The problem, and not really on Aurisonics part, is that the black cable was never really part of the plan. It was only due to kickstarter demand that they even did it, on a limited kickstarter basis. They weren't designed ground up to have any marking because the original plan was to have the white cable with the colors. It was really a last second idea.

The real problem is that the white cable, as part of the original plan, is hard to tell which side is which in low light because the colors end up looking the same enough. I was thinking about doing what shotgunshane said and using the chin slider's AS logo to memorize which side is which in low light situations.

I ordered the black cable version. It's sitting in my room right now, but is thousands of nautical miles away from my current location, and it'll be nine months or so before I see it. I'm just bummed, that's all. I know about the original problem.

[A brief comparison with the F111 at request from mejoshua]

 

F111 vs Rockets using the iPhone 5S

 

Rockets need about 3 or 4 more ticks of volume to match the F111

Rockets are less fatiguing over longer listening sessions

 

More impact and rumble in the Rockets

A bit more treble sparkle in the F111

 

Rockets have a thicker, more weighty overall note

F111 sounds thinner but airier and slightly clearer in comparison

 

A little better height and much better depth with the Rockets

F111 is more upfront and in your face with slightly more width

 

F111 frequency response comes across as a little more flat and linear

Rockets frequency response comes across as a very slight downward sloping arc with more overall emphasis on the midrange

 

Resolution seems about equal with better layering and timbre in the Rockets, although I like cymbals just a bit more on the F111 due to the extra sparkle
