Yeap. I'm confused as to how it is implemented if the cable is not modified.

Dale- What's the song playing in the video peak of how they are made?

If the remote and mic clips onto the cable properly, Aurisonics can sell that on its own as an addon accessory to convert any product into a mic'd product as it would be able to clip onto any cable (so long as the cable was thick enough). That would be something to work with as its own standalone product then.

Bluetooth, eh? I wonder if it'll probably be useful with other iems too.

LOL, I was thinking the same thing ;)

Thinking if I should get more rockets......

Does anyone know if there's a way to change the address that it will be delivered to? I might not be the address I gave by the time these are ready to be shipped.

Rawrster> When the campaign is over, a survey will be sent out for you to key in the address that you want the rewards to be shipped to.

Many such products already exist. I own two (a cheap generic one and one from Jabra). I don't use either. I also own a BBX (BT as part of the headset, with a cable that can be shortened to get out of the way) and use it all the time. A better BBX is what I would pay for.

That remote and mic can be completely detached from the cable?  In other words, it's in two separate pieces and would function on it's own solely as a remote and mic (not a headset; just input, no output)? That's what I'm talking about, not an adjustable cable, with the way Aurisonics worded it, it doesn't seem like the remote+mic is permanently attached to the cable, rather a separate addon.

Yep. That's what I got as well. It's either that or a headset earpiece. I am definitely not interested in the latter. Would be cool if it's a separate attachment piece that you clip to the cable. That would be pretty cool.

No. That's what I said: It's a BT headset, not just earphones plugged into a BT module. Such modules aren't uncommon:

 

You still have to deal with a clip and a long cable. From experience, the BBX is a lot more practical.

That's also not what I'm talking about XD.  The BT module would be completely separate from the headphones, your headphones don't plug into them, and don't need to.  Your headphones connect directly into the device.  The remote and mic would look similar to a standard 3-button remote and mic you'd find on a pair of headphones (your JayBirds' for example), and have a clip/notch on them (preferably two) and clip midway into the cable, or your shirt if you wanted to, but not connect to the headphones through any electrical circuit.  The audio would come out of the headphone jack (of your source, the BT module doesn't have a headphone jack), the BT module would request access to be a remote and an audio input device, not output.  All 4 devices you listed there request to be audio output and input.  The device wouldn't be able to stream music, just act as a remote and a mic. 

 

That was what was in my mind.  What you linked to are close to it, but not quite what I had in mind.

Ah, I understand now. Yes, it could work.

 

What I dream of, as a BT headset, is something like the BBX, but with removable cables (to be able to get exactly the length I want and to make repairs easier) and even better sound and ergonomics. No, wait, what I dream of, even though it isn't currently possible, is two separate earpieces, without cable, capable of hi-fi stereo reproduction.

 

This said, I do realize that something like the BBX would be a completely different product from the current Rocket, and thus not in the cards for the near future. But if the Rocket's driver is really that good, I'd love to see it implemented in something akin to the BBX.

Koss tried something that's fully wireless without a cable, they are two earpieces...  They are capable of Hi-Fi stereo reproduction (work over WiFi, which is capable of that).  The thing is, they look a little weird on the ears.  Check out the Koss Striva Tap...  It doesn't look like they are in stock though :/ 

 

Now, I think you also want the BBX to be smaller as well, right, which is why you'd like a micro-driver to power it.  FYI, microdrivers are not new, MEElectronics used one in their CC51 a long while back, those were actually really good headphones IMO.  The thing that is making them large is the battery and electronics.  Right now, I do have a pair of MEE Metro which aren't bad by any means.  They use the same form factor as the Jaybirds.
