wow, so far unanminous

Wow. So far it's unanimous.
The headfi house is divided concerning the HD800.
Half say it's perfect and the other saying it's bass shy (over-dampened bass) and treble hot.

So far, there's seems to be united house on this. The jh13pro maybe the phones that people were expecting the HD800 to be.

I haven't been able to get my HD800's in the UK yet so jumped on the JH13 wagon. I have to say that the comments of the last few pages are building up the expectation somewhat.

I am thinking about changing my portable setups and wanted some advice.

I use an iphone 2G for ultra portable and 160GB iPod Classic with GSP Voyager, both with ALAC.

I was wondering which would give the greatest satisfaction; a 3GS iPhone or and iMod 5.5 with Voyager.

Any comments on these options (or thoughts on the HiFiMan 800)?

Regards

Sceptre

PS No shipping details yet for the JH13's

Good point! I also don't read much about the JH13 being analytical which has been said by even the biggest fans of the HD800. I trust LFF, and I knew when he stated the JH13 impressed him much more than the HD800, there was something to it.

I just fired up the iBasso D10 and P3+ and this proves to be a very good combination with the 13's. Again, very wide and good depth and transparency. Eric Clapton, "Unplugged", comes across exceptionally well. I thought I would get some, or a small amount of hiss from the P3+ but I don't.

Yes the iBasso D10 is very good with the JH13s.

The 13's are so good I almost wish I hadn't got them. They take up too much time listening to music. I have never heard anything like them. I am listening to Reckoning by the Grateful Dead and it is just toooo good. What fantastic bass and fleshing out of the musical panorama.
Please stop already! I'm getting them, but my wallet is trying to be responsible and wait. Would it be too much to ask that everyone lie and say they are underwhelmed until that time?

^ I suggest you wait... until they finish my order. Then do it. I talked to them yesterday and they are still getting slammed. The good news is most of the crew took a few days off so they should be fresh and ready to pump a bunch out. They thought orders placed now would take about 2 weeks to ship.

hehe

I don't think I compared it to a $15,000 system other than perhaps jokingly saying I was going sell off my speaker rig and keep the JH13. I mean, they are great, imo, but they will never replace my speaker rig.

It will re-energize my music collection and thereby become the king in my headphone line-up.

I do not think the JH-13s are leaps above ue11s and ue11s are leaps above ue10s. I don't at least but it may sound like leaps because I am so accustomed to my current phones.


But the JH-13s have another benefit --- if they can reproduce sound even better without amplification--- I still play the ue11s right out of an iPhone because for highest portability and good SQ they sound really go. They sounded better with a Predator amp but that hindered portability. Portability is so important to me right now.
Hmmm.... You really have to at least try the demo... =)

Listening to blues (pitch corrected :^( ) guy Joe Bonamassa, "The Ballad of John Henry". It sounds epic on the 13's with the iRiver H140 lossless>D10>iBasso T3.

I can leave these in for hours with no discomfort but I find that if I create no pressure (air) when putting them in by not getting a seal until done, I get the best airy sound and most open.

I don't have any experience with the Voyager, but I have a 3GS [have had all three models], and I have an iMod 5.5 with Mustang. The iPhone doesn't sound too bad, but it can't keep up with the iMod/Mustang, and the storage capacity differential is significant. With lossless files, that matters.

Do the JH13Pro's come with a mini to 1/4" adapter?

Custom monitors come with nothing but a cleaner, a case, and that's about it....maybe a bottle of Oto-Ease like Westone does...and some manuals and papers...noooothing else
