Quite interested in this. I've heard a lot of good things about the JH13 over the years, but customs have never appealed to me. IEM fit has also always been a bit of an issue for me, nice to see some R&D being done to make this better. Very interesting product.   Only constructive feedback I would give is on the teal colour logos of the JH13v2 shells. It's not very complimentary to the wood plate. Clashes a bit. Black would probably be less jarring and take less away...
Nice to see Rogers getting involved. I'm a fan of the BBC monitor sound (I own Harbeth M30.1s), so hope they are tuning for that.
Thanks to the organisers of this, was a good day.   Succeeded in finding a new set of IEMs, which was my principle mission for the day. Listened to pretty much everything in my price range and in the end went for a Noble Savant, which I found I preferred slightly to the more expensive Django that was also very good. Those two seemed a clear notch over anything in the same price range on show in the IEM category.   Special mention has to go to Flare's as yet unavailable...
If you're carrying stuff, be aware that there is quite a long walk between Victoria and Jubilee lines at Green Park. Picadilly to Northern won't be any quicker, but you'll be sat down for most of that time. 
Bit late to the party with this thread and not sure which day to come. What day is the raffle (I assume there is one this year?) or is it both days?   Won a JustAudio DAC last year, want to see if my luck continues.  [EDIT, or maybe the year before? I'm getting old...]
That's the nicest designed Noble piece yet. Bit out of my price range, but looks the part of a flagship.
 Yes exactly. It's the same with bluetooth headphones, any headphones receiving a digital signal from the source must have their own digital to analogue conversion and amplification circuitry installed - more commonly this is in the ear cups, but Audeze have gone with the cable. In some ways, this makes more sense. It allows it to be replaced if it goes wrong, upgraded if they come up with something better, and for them to make just one SINE model than can be digital or...
 I'm not following you?  Do you mean the Audeze lightning cable? The inline module in it does in fact incorporate a miniaturised DAC, amp, DSP circuitry as well as a mic. There is a lot of tech in it, which I why I don't get why people think that $150 is an outrageous price for this. The whole idea of Apple ditching the TRS socket in itself though, is outrageous as the is the end result of it if it happens - every single set of headphones need to have its own circuitry....
 Like I said - that should be read as a discount bundle price. Why would no reasonable person buy a dac, amp and cable with DSP for $150? You've been on head fi since 2001. It can't have escaped your attention that most members here have spent that amount, and a lot more, on a DAC on its own, an amp on its own, even a cable on its own.  In fact a DAC/amp that is $150 is generally considered a bargain basement sort of a product. Still struggling to figure out why in this...
 I buy a phone and I use it until it dies. Same goes for a DAP and any other electronic device.  The point I was making was that, if Apple in fact end up doing away with the TRS socket on their phones, and others follow suit—then every single pair of headphones sold will have to be bluetooth or lightning. That means a separate amp and dac in every single set—massively wasteful.  It's not the same as saying we should do away with all electronics; I love electronics. It's...
