How did Aurisonics pull this off? I need to know more about the tech implemented in this thing.


Proprietary driver designed by Dale+secret sauce. Lots of secret sauce.

Please...no more.

 

Each day I grow jealous of you guys. You have the good sauce so far. Can it hurt to share some of that secret sauce? I actually want an IEM to blast my ears while I sleep lol. I kind of miss those days, where I could sleep on my sides due to the minuscule size of some IEMS (like the Sony earphones that came with my PSP).

 

Now that this rocket appears, I am pretty regretful for not backing them up. (Though this post is mostly a joke actually. I do not mind reading the impressions and love for these tiny IEMS. Though it does keep me awestruck that everyone enjoys these 100 percent).

 

 

Like always, happy listening. :beerchug:

I want each and every one of you without a pair of Rockets to know that you're missing out big time.

 

Big. Time.

They sing perfectly well mostly with female tracks but i do find the mid bass slightly uptight on my taste especially on male tracks.

Missing? I have no idea what you're talking about. It's not like these sound amazing or can they withstand any abuse you throw at them. No worries you're missing nothing...:rolleyes:

 

On a serious note though, has anyone managed to invoke cable memory for more then a minute on the cable? I've done everything I can and I'm close to calling it impossible unless someone else has any ideas.

This is how I read it. Thank you! :')

Hmmm these are the only IEMs that interest me at the moment, until the new Sony flagship IEMs are released.

 

Seems Tenore inspired with slightly better sound and much better build

 

The price is too high, but then again, it's made in the US so it's understandable. 

 

Any chance a version with a mic will be released?

Agree, cable is well designed to withstand of any abuse despite of suppleness but i found them really impossible to hang behind the ears since no memory is building on this cable.

Any options on aftermarket tips? The stock tips fits well on my ears but they damnn remain on my canals each time i pull them.

The Sennheiser biflanges from here work great.

Also really like the Meelec biflanges.

Both of these seem to emphasize the treble a bit more. If you want more bass try something with a deeper fit and a narrower bore, like MH1 tips or Sony hybrids.

Yeah.  I have a mic version backed.  Don't know what retail is, but it cost me an extra $30 when I backed (total of $180).

 

I don't think they're even close to getting started on the mic versions for backers yet, which is disappointing to say the least, but they're not a giant warehouse that pumps out 1000s a day, so I guess I'll just have to wait my turn.

Only problem is that the Rockets seem to be misbranded. The shells appear to be made of unobtainium instead of titanium.


also, this driver seems to be quick as hell. 
Woah, given that you already regard the ASG-2(.5)'s very highly, that's really high praise you're giving the Rockets. I'm curious! Could you elaborate more on the difference? Or maybe make a comparison on the ASG-2 thread? wink.gif And not to mention the Rockets are much cheaper than the ASG-2's and not even targeted towards the professional crowd.
