Since it is my first English review really hope you will enjoy it.

In italian language:
DISCLAIMER: galaxy v2 unit was sent me as a sample unit,for this I really thank Sammy and Rhapsodio team. I am not affiliated with the company and all observations and opinions will be only my own.
Talking with Sammy,the boss of this company based in Hong Kong, I really appreciated his motivation and his philososphy. He has a lot of ideas in mind and a lot of future projects to show us,in particular he wants to concentrate on the mid price range for the upcoming releases.
In the box we can find the Iem galaxy v2 with a
PACKAGING: the packaging is really good: a hard case as you can see from the images I attached,various eartips(silicone ones) not adeguate for the 1450USD DOLLARS that this IEM has sent.
,and a stock cable Pandora Dwarf.
Packaging is not a rich one,but really nice looking.
The Galaxy v2 is very solid with a Brass housing showing a single dynamic driver in Titan material. So in a world where every company sells iems with a lot Of balanced armature and dynamic drivers, why Rhapsodio sells his single dynamic driver at 1450 USD DOLLARS?
My answer is this one: Galaxy v2 shows one of the most natural sound I have ever heard. Maybe,multi balanced IEMS can show more details,more control, but the can’t be as natural as Galaxy v2 can be.
All my sound consideration has been made after 200 hours of burn in as suggested from the Rhapsodio company.
Galaxy v2 has a very audiophile and natural sound,but at the same time brings an enjoyable fun signature. Has a lot of details in particular in the high frequency response, a very good bass, maybe too much for my taste, but shows an high quality bass, one of the best I have ever heard in a single dynamic driver. The star of the show are the hights, very crispy detailed with a lot of sparkles. Female mids are really portrayed and the are very natural,with “Adele” someone like you I thought that the singer was here with me in my room.
Maybe male voices are not as good as female ones, because they lack body.
The soundstage isn’t one of the best , but is coherent in particular has a wide one and sometimes offers an out of the head sound, with the adeguate tracks, deep is good and has a fantastic instrumental separation with vey good layering.
Dynamic and transients response is phenomenal, thanks to the titan driver. If you loved fiio ex1,or dunu titan 1, Galaxy v2 represents a really upgrade in every aspects.
CONCLUSION: YES ,galaxy v2 is a pricey IEM, is heavy if you can’t find the adeguate eartips and seal, so this is not a perfect headphone, but after all perfection doesn’t exist, but if you are looking for an audiophile sound and at the same time with a fun signature, with great clarity and dynamic, galaxy v2 is the right choice.
Frequency response: 10Hz~ 23,000 Hz
