I see that your public apology has been culled from your review and featured as a blurb on the site. You're never living that one down lol


Lol yes thanks Dale. What can I say? I'm an Aurisonics shill through and through :p

Indeed antiloop works quite well even without the ear-guide.
 
I went out running today and I only had a wire dismounting once. microphonics are almost non existence.

Agreed. Surprisingly great implementation.

Also, sound update. These are still ridiculous. Just absolute top tier mids. My only tiny complaint remains bass, although I might be able to eke a bit more out with narrower tips. It could use just a couple more dB sub-bass with the Meelec biflanges. Everything from ~50Hz up is as perfect as anything I've heard. Still great bass in general as far as weight and speed is concerned. It's right in that magic spot between too little and too much.

And another good sign: all three pairs I've heard so far sounded exactly the same as far as I could tell. Consistency seems very good.

Yes I would want that as well.. about 2-3db bump somewhere around 30-60hz will make them near perfect in my book.
 
Mids are absolutely magical. 
 
I just cannot get over how amazing solo violin pieces sound on these!

I should be getting my Anti-loops in a couple of days! I look forward to this development! (or at least I think that is what the small box from Dale Lott will contain, if it contains anything else I'll be sure to let people know)

What would u do if u saw a fellow Rockets owner during ur commute or run? I may just pause, stare at him/her, point to my ears and share a hug. These r so limited right now, its an absolute crime. Really want the masses to be able to own a pair by the start of the holidays.

I heard these over the weekend at the Nashville meet. They were the surprise of the meet for me in terms of sound quality. I have never been able get any fit from iem's until the Vsonic mkii with the adjustable nozzles and a pair of small Sony hybrid tips. And while I like the sound of the Vsonic and have been utterly grateful for the fit, the Rockets are in a whole different league with regard to BOTH fit and sound quality. 
 
If Jessica Alba would have walked in wearing a thong bikini, I'd still kept on fondling the Rockets....well nah.
