Rhapsodio - An overlooked brand of nice IEMs - Page 11  

post #151 of 2508

Im pretty busy with finals and packing right now. I will post a review once i land in Taiwan in a few days

 

General Idea:

 

Treble: crisp and airy - really nice decay to it

 

mid: on the thinner side imo especially coming from an iem with very dark mids. Detail overall is pretty good though

 

Bass: very powerful - lacks a little finesse and can be a bit too dominating - will explain more about it later

 

Soundstage: Sadly still too small

 

Imaging: very precise imaging but due to small soundstage, takes away from accuracy a bit

Thanks for that bro, quite a departure from the RTi1.
post #153 of 2508

I would definitely assume the two are completely different sounding,

 

Sammy mentioned soundstage on RTi1 is significantly larger.

 

At least im moving to a desktop rig so using the RD3 as portable is fine without a large soundstage

 

If used as a portable on the go iem though, id say the RD3 performs very well

Hey guys. I took the time and finished up my review of the RD3. Hope you guys get the chance to give it a read if you're interested in it!

Picture of Rhapsodio's RDB V3 Hybrid I have on loan.

I'm undecided about the sound to be honest - tonality wasn't what I was expecting, warmer in the mids. I think I prefer RDB Mini's tuning personally. While RDB V3 isn't a bad sounding hybrid it doesn't  fit me well physically which limits me wanting to spend time with it. The memory wire on that cable isn't helping and I have no other Shure cables here to try. I still think Rhapsodio were going places with their original RDB V1 hybrid, the tuning on that was a good choice for audiophiles.

It's a pity Rhapsodio stopped selling RDB V1 before momentum really picked up for that model.

I'm not even 100% certain that's the earphones correct model number. However, I can assure you this.......it was something very close to that! :tongue:

hahaha, i think its easy for anyone to get confused of sammy's unlimited releases cos there are soo many. But, we know that they have released some great gems in the past and im also lucky that I own one of those gems, the RTi1. :beyersmile:

Hey guys, I added some more thoughts about the RD3 to my review after taking the time to listen to some TOTL iems like IE800, SE846, UE 18, K3003, and SD3 to name a few. Feel free to take a look at the extra added stuff, there's quite a bit there.

 

Note to Nazrin: Imo, RD3 > SD3, you should give it a try :o

hahahha...i wouldnt be surprised bro cos I know Sammy puts out great products.

 

But I cant downgrade..I already have the RTi1...

 

listening to Miles Davis..Kind of Blue (SACD) now...and im in musical heaven..

 

Soundstage is wide..real wide, instrument separation, details and imaging is world class. Imagine a black ground, then that sax hitting you at the backside of your head and suddenly the drums hitting you from the right..sonic bliss when its as coherent as the RTi1.

 

but this is one analytical monitor. Give it a bad recording and you will know in a second, give it a well mastered record and it will leave you speechless.

yeap, sadly I am. As much as i love it (I really really do) as it really goes well with EDM but out of my 3 IEMs, it gets used the least. So, I think its best it finds a new home to someone who will use em.

 

 

kinda sad thou, but if it doesnt sell, I wont mind too hehehe
