After browsing a bit on Aliexpress, I recently bumped into new releases from the earphone-maker called "Rose".
Spec-wise their lineup is somewhat similar to many of the Aliexpress "hits" like MusicMaker and the newly released ZhiYin, although prices are a tad more on the upper end.
Rose apparently uses 3D-printing for their shells and have a more traditional style of designing earphones comparable to higher-end brands.

There are 3 more earphones Rose makes that I'm aware of. The Rose Aurora which was also called Nln, the Margaret, and an earbud called the Mojito.

To be more correct, they are called Rose Technology. Slightly funny how the name comes about as it has nothing to do with the flower, but how the company name spells in Chinese - '弱水‘, which actually means a mythical river.

Heard Rose Margaret recently. Pretty darn good IEM. A bit reminiscent of FLC8S with my favorite tuning configuration of Red-Gray-Gold.

 
I believe the actual name is Margarita, as in the cocktail .
 
Here are the whole current line-up, from cheapest to most expensive (based on original Taobao price)
 
1) Unnamed - RMB88, supposedly in-ear, meant to be entry level.
2) Aurora - RMB449, single dynamic.
3) Hybrid no.7 - RMB799, 1 BA + 1 dynamic
4) Margarita - RMB1099, dual dynamic
5) Hybrid no.8 - RMB1399, 2BA + 1 dynamic
6) Mojito, RMB1499, dual dynamic, earbud.
7) Unnamed - RMB1800, 4 BA, upcoming.
8) Cappuccino - RMB1999, 2 BA + 2 dynamic. Secondary flagship.
9) b&r5 - RMB2200, 5 BA Flagship
10) Hybrid no.9 (a.k.a Pudding) - RMB2499, 4 BA + 1 dynamic flagship.

Clieos knows their story, but if I remember they're a small group of college students, or a small froup using a college's lab for work.

The company started around October last year. Pretty sure it is a college's spin-off.

Thanks for the correction. I borrowed them from a fellow headfi member who called them Margaret, thus my confusion. Have you heard the lineup ClieOS?

Have you covered Mojito on headfi ClieOS? Don't think I've ever heard of a dual dynamic earbud before :blink:

Mojito is a delicious drink btw. Love this company's cocktail theme! I think I'll reach out to them and see if we can get some in the west to try out and share amongst headfi friends. Can anyone PM me direct contact info?
