 JH requires a musicians fit - is this the first time you did that?  
 It definitely was.  I've had a fair share of UIEMs starting with ER4s 10 years ago, but with these I was surprised to find how pliant my ears actually are.
 Don't send them back just yet... had the same issue with my right ear as well, to a lesser degree on my left.  Couldn't take more than 15 minutes at first, by the second day I was able to do about 45 minutes per sitting before the pain was too much and had to take a break.  5 days later I could go several hours but that area would be sore/numb after.  Now 5 months later, there is no rubbing at all.
Have you listened to the Roxannes?
Yeah, that's my thought - it will be some sorta tweaked Roxanne along the line of a freqphase innovation.   Roxanne freq-fazor... anyone?  
Keep in mind you can get CF faceplates which should effectively look the same while in your ears - I don't think there's any hold-up going with that option.  It's somewhat of an engineering marvel to get the full CF, but beyond that I think the novelty wears thin quickly.  
 Jerry actually stated it was going to be the flagship of the "Siren Series", with the implication that they were coming out with several others with it retaining flagship status for awhile.  But that was pre-release talk. 
 The only people who experienced that kind of wait time are those in for carbon fiber. Plenty of reports from people w/ acrylics of delivery times in the 2-3 month period.  I ordered on Black Friday, switched from CF -> acrylic back in Feb, got my IEMs 3 weeks later.
 Actually JH was going to offer this, don't know what happened: http://www.head-fi.org/t/633596/jh-audio-freqphase-and-lantos-3d-digital-ear-scanner-head-fi-tv-canjam-rmaf-2012
 RE: $$ I hear ya... but there seem to be a fair amount of head-fiers with like a half dozen or more kilobuck IEMs.  Thought we'd be hearing from at least a few more sr. members receiving both by now.  Looking forward to Shigzeo's review. Point taken on Jude's experience, of which I'm in the same boat. In any case, not *looking* to stir stuff up - but I was going to to wait until the summer to see how the current new IEM landscape shook out (ie. Roxannes vs. K10 vs....
