The nuts on the cable in my most recent Roxanne photos are aluminum.
Regarding bubbles: I hadn't even noticed any bubbles until I looked at my photos. Understand that few things escape the scrutiny of a camera with a good sensor, onto which is mounted an excellent macro lens at f/22, lit by the blasts from three Profoto studio flashes.   When using this setup to take photos, I wear nitrile rubber gloves, just to keep my fingerprints and skin oils out of the photos--fingerprints and skin oils that are all over your gear that you never...
Though I placed what was probably one of the first (perhaps the first) Roxanne order, I told JH Audio I was in no particular rush to receive it.   My carbon fiber Roxanne arrived the other day, and it fits perfectly. The insertion depth is a little shallower than the custom prototype, and very similar to the insertion depth of my FitEar MH334 custom. To my eyes and hands, the fit-and-finish of both the carrying case and the Roxanne itself is excellent.   Most...
I was at Sennheiser's headquarters a couple of weeks ago, and had a chance to sit down with co-CEO Dr. Andreas Sennheiser. We talked about many things, and I was very impressed with how comfortable he was discussing everything from global business considerations to even very detailed aspects of specific Sennheiser products. Sennheiser co-CEO Dr. Andreas Sennheiser, with a photo ofhis late grandfather, Sennheiser founder Dr. Fritz Sennheiser. We even discussed social media....
 Yes, a white light should go on while it's charging (visible inside the big clear window, off to the side of the window a bit). Once charging is complete, the light turns off. If your Hugo was recently charged fully (but unplugged and not used), that light will probably not turn the next time you plug the Hugo's charger in (due to the battery's fully-charged state).
I may need to borrow some underwear and socks.
Oh, I'll also have production V-MODA XS.
I've spent a little time with the production version of the PM-1, and I'll give some very early first impressions. (Keep in mind my time with the production version has been brief, and it is different enough from any of the prototypes I've heard or have had in my possessions that I have to start anew with this retail-ready version): First of all, it is better than any of the prototypes I've heard, so kudos to OPPO for taking the time needed to get it to where it is....
In addition to the OPPO PM-1, I think I also managed to cram the following into my carry-on: FiiO X5 with 128GB card with some music Sony Walkman NW-ZX1 Astell&Kern AK240 Sennheiser HD 26 Pro Sony PHA-2 Fostex HP-V1 (tube / solid state hybrid portable amp) Geek Out 1000 AudioQuest Dragonfly (with Dragon Tail) Meridian Explorer Chord Electronics Hugo (pre-production, but sounds the same as production) I think that's everything. See y'all in the morning!
I'll have a production-version OPPO PM-1 headphone with me.   I'll bring a few other things, depending on what I can fit on my carry-on.
