I also just got a pair (same seller?) as I was curious given how many people said this was an upgrade from the er-4. While it does not have the same sparkly and dry detail, the mids and bass wieght make this an easier pair to listen to for long periods. The soundstage seems more natural to me compared to the sterile er-4.


The best tips so far have to be these http://www.my-ear.com.tw/spinfit-tips/

Goes quite deep in and very comfortable. Just got to push the tips on tight as the first time it popped off in my ear and I had to get a tweezer to pull the tips out!


Is there a place that sells spinfit tips that ships internationally? I've been wanting to try those since I first heard about them.

I certainly see why rocket has won so much love, it is incredibly well tuned and it can easily win a battle against IE800 at ease. Sadly like IE800 I am having a fit issue. Tip rolling begins!


Hah, I almost bought an ie800 the other day so thanks for that tidbit. Tips for rockerfs can be tricky since the IEM doesn't like to sit straight in the canal. I have to use the tritabs to keep them properly aligned (if you wiggle the rockets up and down, you can hear the sound gradually open up or close off, very similar to etymotic IEMs in that there's a sweet spot) for optimal sound if I'm using anything other than the stock tips

I agree on the Rockets having better sq than the IE800. That was one of my first thoughts when I originally auditioned the prototype. I suppose a basshead might disagree and I could understand that but the Rockets have far exceeded my expectations.

I know some have complained about microphonics but I love the Kevlar cable. One of the best, if not the best, stock cables I can remember ever experiencing.

  I'm curious if those who ordered more than one unit got them all at once or in individual batches?
 
Anxious to hear when somebody finally gets the mic version.

Use google translate if required
 
They are listed here:
 
http://www.mingo-hmw.com/home/goods.php?id=3100
 
and according to this:
 
http://mingo-hmw.net/forum/forum.php?mod=viewthread&tid=142039&extra=page%3D2
 
Mail order over 100 HKD, so buying a few pairs/other stuff is required.
But the info is outdated, so i guess it's still worth e-mailing them about it?
