Okay I have some impressions now between the RTi1 and The Tralucent 1plus2
Lemme get one thing outta the way, these 2 are different in sound signature..in concept..basically in everything...and for the life of me cant say which is better cos they are 2 different. Take this with a pinch of salt but this is what I think:
BASS: 1plus2 wins. Was there any doubt? by far the RTi1 biggest weaknesses. Both reaches way down in the low sub basses but 1plus2 wins in quantity, quality and slam.
MIDS: RTi1 wins. RTi1 was more lush, more intimate, more detailed and to me sounded closer. The 1Plus2 presents mids a step back and a lil more distant. Both showed good prowess with voices, male and female BUT RTi1 takes voices in another level. Probably the best IEM for voices.
TREBLE: Draw. The RTi1's treble energy can be at times be hot for my ears BUT most of the time it is stable and gives out immense details. The 1plus2 never sounded sibilant to me and its treble does gives out great detail but never to the level of the RTi1.
SOUNDSTAGE: 1plus2 wins. Both has the same width or spatiality but the 1plus2 has the depth Ive been yearning for.
Instrument Separation. RTi1 wins. This iem is on a league of its own in this category. The pinpoint accuracy instruments are scary.
RTi1 :Natural (with hint of warmth), good bass, great mids, great treble which gives out class leading details and instrument separation. Great with classical, acoustics and vocals.
Analytical and Details MONSTERS!!!!
1plus2: Neutral with great quality bass, good mids and great treble which made for the owner to enjoy the music rather than dissect it. To me, has about the same sound signature as the NAD VISO HP50. So uncanny the similarities. It is touted to sound like floor speakers same as the NAD. Great with jazz, live music and POP.
Very Fun and easy to listen to.
