Well, i don't think made in China is a problem at all, as Shure Products, and Ultimate Ears products are made in china, and i haven't found any build quality issues with them yet. This is My opinion though.

Getting back onto topic my 13's are getting better by the day as I am getting more used to them. I can't wait for jh to get the smaller case out so I will have a portable way of transporting my stuff.

Oh, so JH will be selling a smaller case for 13 pro?

I don't know....I heard they are making a smaller case but I don't know if it will be bundled like how UE did it with a large and small metal case or if it will be a separate accessory either way I am going to get one because I need something to carry them in.

Hey HEadphoneaddict (and other lucky soon-to-be jh13 owners!), patiently waiting in anticipation for your review. Its actually good for me to wait a few months because I normally really tend to rush things and now I can just save up for it and get the iem in september or even october (ooc) i have decided to get a netbook with optical out for all my mobile computer/music needs.
Have a lot of fun with all your new toys larry (funny to know that you too grew tired of closed headphones all together),
Greetings, Anouk,

High end customs just make more sense than a $6000 Sony R10 and $2500 ATH-L3000 closed headphone.

Not if you bought them a few years ago for a lot less.

Err... they were still pretty damn expensive, dude.

Anyways, considering that customs are ultra portable, block out tons of unwanted sound, and are much much less expensive that electrostats, I think the high-end customs seem to crystal clearly be a value king compared to any full-size cans.

IEMs are clearly going to be the future of highest end sound reproduction, as I project it. Think about it. Would it make sense that the highly technologically advanced entities in Star Trek have to lug around a fat piece of machine over their head in order to have highest quality sound? Of course not. They'd probably have devices even much smaller than today's IEMs that somehow manage to fit perfectly in the canal without a remote feeling of discomfort, that uses some kind of zero-inertia (ideal) transducers.

I deleted a few post as they were pushing the a side-topic into arguments and religious comments. Can't go there, people.
post #1270 of 10094
can i go there? i want to go there. in fact, i will. i BELIEVE that my JH13Pro will be great - religiously, I am adamant that they must be upgrades to my Sleek CT6, though, I will admit, a feeling of doubt.

Hey guys doing a short review of an A/B of jh and triple fi while waiting for my rehearsal to start.

Right off the bat everyone can probably tell the bass response of jh13 is far superior to the of triple fi without sacrificing any details or introducing any mud into the music. This is especially obvious when you're listening to music like Avishai Cohen who's a bassist so the bass is prominent. What's more important is that you can really hear the decay of the sound of the double bass, the left hand buzzing from the low action of the double bass. When he hits high notes on his bass you can hear the beautiful growl of the instrument. More so than i can hear from triple fi where i have to admit lacks resonance in comparison to the thirteen. What's the best part is that i can feel the buzz of the kick drum and double bass every time they accent. Stronger and more precise than triple fi delivers. The fundamental to overtone ratio is smaller, but the true harmonic information increases several fold. It's just stunning. Because the note strong comes strong together with the overtones. It's absolutely beautiful.

Now to the mids. I have to say that the two are quite similar in terms of sound signature in this aspect. The toms and snare and the piano sound highly similar, but the thirteen gives a much higher resolution and separation than the triple fi. I used to have problems distinguishing piano and bass common lines if the piano bangs the notes. Not so anymore. Haha. Distinction is very strong. Clarity and true colour of the timbre of the piano is amazing. Intonation is funny thing because it shows all flaws and in so shows perfection.

Resolution of the highs.. I have to admit that it might sound harsh to others but in me it's the true sound of being next to cymbals.. The resolution of the brushes is amazing. My only complain last time for crystal cables is distance of the drums kills the resolution for minute details but now it's so amazingly intimate and real. Can feel everything just at the back of my head.. It feels like i'm playing in the band. Oh but actually till now it still sounds a bit capped because the crossovers are not burnt in. These are just my initial reviews. =) However I have to say that I'm very very pleased with the sound.

Something I posted on another forum.. =)

Hi 13pro's owners.
I saw the blog that 13pro owner in Japan said, "The artwork of 13pro is inferior".
I am worried very much because I have already ordered 13pro.
Is it really so?
post #1273 of 10094
Inferior compared to what? I'm happy with my design. Could it better? Probably. Would it cost more then $50? Probably. Did I order these for their artwork? Hell no.

All I want is the best sound. Thats what the JH-13 has.

It was good.
It was relieved.
Thank you!

Bojamijams,
If it is good, could you show your 13pro?
