Thanks in advance.
All that means is that the Rocket jack is slightly longer to accommodate for systems that have a deeper plug.
The Noble 4 and Sony 7550 plug fits and stays in with no problem on my X5. Not only that, but I find the V in the Rocket cord too short for going around my ears without strangling me, plus touching the cord makes the sound of an avalanche in my ears. I don't like hanging cords down. I think the cord would be excellent for camping as extra strong line and for use as a Drs. stethescope cord, or better yet, between two cups so kids can talk to each other in the house, or better yet as a sports IEM cord which it is designed for, LOL!!!
But I believe the bottom line is that the Rockets were designed as a sports IEM, not a Headfi sound machine. It just happens to sound exceptionally clear compared to their other lines most likely due to not having a bass driver and/or decreased bass in tuning, just like my AS2 sounded initially until Dale removed sound-deadening material around my tweeters, then I heard the highs, LOL!!
So I will either put up or shut up, splice another cord to the existing cord, or return them to Earphone Solutions for a refund then try to find an IEM that has similar SQ but has the comfort bells and whistles I like. Currently I'm thinking of the FAD Heaven V unless you might have other suggestions???? Cheers,
Thanks for the suggestion Jobbing. I did read about it, a bit higher than I want to go right now, plus don't comply tips have to be replaced frequently?? Just dropped $180 on the FAD Heaven V, but couldn't get AmazonJP to finish my order for $180 plus Tenso shipping for $200, so went with BuySmartJapan and now paying $20 tax and $20 for shipping for $219, so after shipping back my Rockets I broke even!!Ha!!
I have heard excellent things about the FAD from Muppetface and Vwinter and others. I did break my rule, it doesn't have a detachable cable, but no complaints about its cable/plugfit or comfort so we'll see.
Those are certainly interesting... I just don't have $300 to drop right now.
