We are not trying to compete with Chinese made inexpensive stuff everyone else seems to sell, it's not what we do and who we are.

 

I understand, as this is supposed to be targeted to the average consumers instead of audiophiles i thought i'd share a general concern on their behalf.

But for as for me, if it is as how shotgunshane has reviewed as the sound being better than the IE800, heck i'd even pay 2x for what the Rocket is selling for right now :D

**Hope the mic/remote will also have volume buttons. I know that may be a stretch but that's basically the ideal set up nowadays.**

 

Sorry, i've never touched nor was every interested in Bose products. The only redeeming feature they have is their noise cancellation technology.

I can't offer my opinion as to comparisons of products on head-fi but I have a VAST assortment of IEMs including the IE800 and I have to say that with a proper headphone amp ROCKETS really do sound incredible. Heck even out of just an iPhone they sound awesome. I designed them to take down giants... They are not a one trick pony. The key is truly in the simplicity. They make beautiful sound. You know one driver is really enough...

Well those iems are what the general consumer is buying. As well as beats and skullcandy. Audiophiles are the minority.

It's original, sure, but maybe not very practical.

New breed of customers we call pro-sumer. People who are tired of buying stuff that sounds like #2 and only lasts a few weeks before the cord shorts out. They want something better that lasts. ROCKETS fits nicely in that niche as well as a few other.

That would be awesome, any chance of distributing a few demo samples to head-fi reviewers as well? I know it will definitely help push up the sales volume!

I've seen a few of those you mentioned around, but not for working out/jogging though. As from what i've seen around me (parks/gyms/tracks), most of them uses stock apple/samsung earphones or cheaper ones like JVC/Phillips while the better ones uses Sennheiser's sports phones.

Since you're asking for suggestions ...

That's the one set of earphones I've used most this past year, by far. They sound good and they're really very, very practical.

 

I know, a BT headset isn't something you've ever done or (probably) envisioned. But I'd still like to throw the possibility out there, for the future.

They are still in prototype state as this is kind of a requirement for kickstarter. We will have them at the Austin meet later this month.

Can't wait for more impressions then ;)

Another suggestion for stretch goals would be different colors? I know that would attract more lady users.. as well as guys  ;)

I had the Jaybird JF3 a couple of years back... SQ is really good for a bluetooth IEM, however build quality is sub-par to average...

So small colors not really a viable option. Covered with Tri-flange and tip you can barely see them.
