Anyone want to mess with your head? Go get a K2 HD cd>CDP>amp>JH13s.
- how do you contact jh audio (is there a website) and where are they located?
Yes, but you have to consider the context of these statements.
While some come from those relatively new to high-end audio, upgrading from a far inferior headphone, never having heard the cream of the cop, many other comments are coming from Head-Fi veterans like myself, boomana, edwood, jude, and so on.
I can only speak for myself, but I have owned or auditioned just about every significant headphone out there. Out of that pool, I'd have to rate the JH13 at least in the top ten. But what makes it so incredible is the combination of low cost (compared to its' sonic peers), and relatively low amplification requirements. In essence, the JH13 has lowered the barriers of entry to the arena of super-high-end headphone listening.
I am generally very discriminating and particular about what I listen to, as I know some of my fellow JH13 owners are. The lack of criticism is simply testament to the achievement of the JH13.
I know some of what has been written might be hard to internalize or come to grips with, but it is not a conspiracy, joke, charade, or "new toy syndrome." When men who owned and loved their UE10's for years started saving up for JH13's after a several-minute audition, I knew the JH13 was going to be a big deal.
Perhaps part of it is that being an audiophile, for many if not most, is more about the chase than the final result. I know people who turn their entire system over, seemingly on a monthly basis, even as I once did in certain ways. In such a context, I can see how it would be difficult to accept the idea an audio product good enough to be a real keeper. But at least for me, it is here and now.
Hard drive my friend, hard drive.
