The perfect reference IEM

Posted

Pros: The full frequency range is there, with nothing missing, according to my ears

Cons: Bulkiness (but then there are 12 BA drivers per side), Cost (but then if they are the best)

I have to say, when I first saw them, 12 bands per driver! Isn't that a bit over the top? But after listening to a demoed pair for just 5 mins with my iPod, I bought a pair, they are really that good! I got the AKR03 version though, not sure if they are the same as the JH Audio version.

Jaw droppingly good for an IEM, better than the SE846 and IE800

Pros: Everything (for an IEM)

Cons: Nothing yet (for an IEM), except the price

So when I got my HD800, they were so good from the first hour with every song and genre, when compared to other top tier flagship headphones, that I wrote a quick review to give them a no brainer five stars and then filled that review in slowly.

I'll add more to...

Pros: Adjustable Bass, Good balance, "Spacious" for an IEM

Cons: Poor quality control, Very large earpieces

At the moment, I have the original pair of roxannes with the left (what I noted as defective) earpiece replaced. Upon reopening them and listening, I heard very obvious channel imbalance. With the left earpiece being stronger, more clear and with a bit better balance. The right earpiece is from an original early set. The following review is based mostly on the original pair I owned which may not be representative of the quality of the product you would be receiving now. EDIT: Why did I give this 1/2 a star? Simply because the experience with these has been absolutely awful. I found out after talking to a few audiophiles about my pair that the left earpiece may be broken in some way....
