Just curious, how many people are using them without the tri tabs? the rockets kinda slouch for me if i dont use them, if you know what i mean. Although this hasnt had any noticeable effect on sound from what i can tell so far
just got my rockets today. tin grey with black cable. i might post pics and more detailed impressions later. But on the first listen, using an ak240 as a source, and comparing with my asg2.5:
- Aurisonic house sound vocals, smooth, lush and intimate
- bass, of course its much more polite, but its fast and detailed. Very high quality bass. (The quantity might take a while to to adjust after using the 2.5s for a while)
- Treble, non-fatiguing. Wont say much about this since anyone who read my 2.5 impressions on that thread knows im not a treblehead, as long as its not fatiguing im all good.
-sound stage and imaging are superb, might even top the 2.5
from what i remember, the clear cable is a little more smooth (had a look at the HK high end av show but promised myself not to try them. Not to mention i met Dale there too). the black cable is a little more rubbery.
the only downside is that the cables are quite microphonic, but otherwise its very well build and sturdy.
I wish i ordered more of these. too bad i couldn't get the 99$ super steal ones
