Actually they aren’t as premium boxed as the DQSM D2, which latest package includes a new leather pouch as well.
This is probably because the Rose values price/performance above anything else.For the $120 I paid for it, I really consider it great value.
Especially the Rose shells are of high quality, only the stock cable are just a little soft and not really that good.
The shell really nice
Sounds :Very impressive, huge D2 like soundstage, but with better isolation. They offer a comfortable fit, just a little tight. This is maybe because maybe my ears are slightly bigger than average which result in deep insertion, covering my whole ear side.
But overall they were comfortable and I never felt pain or anything, even with longer listening times.
I found out the Rose no.7 really can achieve such a high resolution sound combining a dynamic with just a single BA.
The overall background music can be perceived very clearly. Instruments like guitars, drums, bass and some electronic devices are layered with clarity.

The Rose no.7 was cheap, but the sounds quality is not cheap at all.
Very huge soundstage and imaging.
Smooth Midrange, slightly upper extension, especially on the preferred vocal level.
Pretty nice treble, such rich extension, but there are never has a harsh or fatiguing.
"Bass" is on an average level, the same like BAs bass, but once plugged into a Chord Mojo that Bass level is extremely enhanced to more solid bass, which hits harder in your ears canal. The Rose no.7 has a slightly more sonic bass than the D2, but the D2 has that huge bass level.
Rose no.7 looks more designed for ladies with the all rounded and smooth shells, suitable for smaller ears, but still ok for me.
Downside was the fits and smaller shell design was slightly tight cause due to the MMCX connector part and nozzle are shorter, I don't think for smaller ear will be has that issue.
(Rose no.7 is really detailed with every song)
Yes, I really did enjoy them more than the other china made hybrid IEMS so far.
