However, with each post, it becomes harder and harder to believe that you don't have a financial interest in pushing these cables.
I agree 100% with you.
I am glad you told him so.

As for the rest of your post, I think Crazyguy106 should be able to state his views on said cable on this thread and start a new thread if he so wishes.
Yes, but is good Iron Dreamer said what he said otherwise the other guy's statement could mislead a lot of people. He really exxagerated things a lot.

I believe they use a microphone and measure it - I know that is what UE does, and they show that on one of their videos.

Yes it's Piccolino. It's the prototype I'm holding on to.

And yes Edwood, I would agree with you.... It's far from. Everything else is blindness compared to JH13 Pro stock. But the Crystal Piccolino Cables are a different ballgame altogether. Especially when such a length of cable comes into play.
He really said that? I can personally call him up and confirm that statement as truth or libel.

I can't beleive that he said that..

Well, Jerry Harvey was at the table right next to Uncle Wilson at CanJam so who knows, maybe he did listen to one of Jaben's Piccolino CC cables and liked it. If you are dying to know, ask Jerry.

I simply fully agreed with Iron_Dreamer's first part of his post -- like others had -- but not the rest of it.

No need for your arrogant and sarcastic reply.

Considering that cable change is pretty low on the totem pole if Jerry thought it was that important and that much of an improvement why wouldn't he offer to sell it or include it in the jh customs?

Well, my headphone search is over.

Sorry for the poor quality.

This is what it is:

This is how it sits:

because piccolino cables would probably cost at least half of what a JH13 pro costs

So then why not sell it as a option? I am sure crazy head-fiers with wallets will buy them interesting my case did not come with a top insert of foam.....Guess I need to send Jerry a email about that lmao

I got my JH13s about an hour ago (Brittany made sure they got to me in my hotel in LA, where I am right now). I'm listening to lossless files from a Classic through an ALO lod and an iQube.

They're wonderful. I've been using UE11s and the JH13s are better in every respect. All ranges are better defined, the bass especially is much tighter (I never thought the 11s bass was bad or overemphasized, as some do, but this bass is much more natural sounding), voices and instruments are much more defined and separated, silences are really silent. They're clearly more analytical than the 11s, but they're also more musical and fun. Amazing.

I've been completely spoiled by my iMod, which has been back to Vinnie to fix a glitch, and have hated listening to my Classic. Right now I don't mind it a bit. (But I can't wait to hear these through the iMod...)

The hype is all real.

UPS tracking says my JH13pro will be delivered Tomorrow (Saturday) - there was something about this poor weeping guy on head-fi who demanded I get overnight Saturday delivery...

Just got home a little while ago from visiting JH Audio's lab with Jensen, another head-fi member and one of the newest proud JH13-Pro owners. I guess I'm lucky in that they are located about 15 minutes from my house.

Jerry was an absolute joy to meet. He was gracious enough to give us quite a bit of personal time, telling stories, educating us, and perhaps most importantly (for me anyway), allowing me to hear the JH13-Pro unversal demos.

What an absolute treat the whole experience was! As good as the universals sounded (in a whole different league than my Shure SE 530's), I can't even imagine what they will sound like as properly fitted customs.

The only question now is which model I will be buying and what method my wife is going to use to commit my murder.
post #1530 of 10287
Unlike barbes, I haven't heard the UE11 but come from SE530's as I've stated previously. I also owned the Westone 3 for a month so can compare to those as well.

Initial Impressions:

I'll start by saying there is really no point to comparing these to universals, they're quite obviously in a different league. But universals are still my reference point since these are my first customs. I'm going to just write a few random thoughts as I listen.


The 13's go low. I'm talking all the way down. I hear bass that I didn't know existed in songs up until now. The low bass frequencies extend farther than either the W3 or SE530, which roll off in comparison. The midbass is less than the W3 though.

The highs extend all the way out, as far as I can tell. No sibilance, which was a big concern for me. Totally smooth.

The mids are perfect. Nothing was lost coming from the Shure's.


There has been no burn in that I can detect, just as I expected. They sounded immaculate from the second I hit play.

Fit is perfect. Took me no time to figure out how to insert the customs. They actually just suck themselves into place and auto seal.

I'm trying to find something to complain about to not make it sound like a biased, hype review. I guess I could say that while the fit is perfect, having customs might take a bit of getting used to - only because I'm used to soft universal tips not hard acrylic. I think that will just take a little getting used to though.

While we still don't have flying cars in 2009, at least portable audio is finally really ****ing good.
