I'm quite relieved to learn that ALL (young) members here are just like Franz Schubert. I guess you're right, then.

If Franz Schubert was alive and 16 years old, would he have sold his soul to get the JH13's, HiFiMAN HM-801, Pico slim/ RSA Shadow, Piccolino cable, etc, etc, etc.? Are all 16-year-old talented musicians all over the world today displaying the same type of behaviour/ attitude seen here?

And please see the post below which was posted yesterday by one of our moderators.

Peter, did you ever get a chance to compare the two side by side? what did you find? is the treble calmed down now in the demo? how close/far is it from the custom? inquiring minds want to know .

'scuse me if this was already corrected but there are a couple of other members who've owned all three of these iems (Ricey20 & cmascatello - although his ue11s are now history), as well as a number that have at least two of them (Boomana(ue&jh), Edwood(w&jh), dscans (ue&w), and some others).
from what i can glean so far, the preferred iem seems to be the jh13s.

But it kept improving. That's the scary part.

But I'll still be using the black JH13 cables for live shows, as the cables are to bling bling. HAHA
oh totally, I understand that and if I didnt have a viable alternative, and also didnt have the rest of my rig already cabled with it, I would probably grab one; also other than demand, why has it doubled in price???

thanks for that clarification daveDerek. my point rather was to show that those three companies make high end products but to sall 'all three companies' leaves out many other companies whose products are in the same league (at least price-wise) some of which were more hi-tech than even westones es3x and until the jh13pro, the top of the range in terms of drivers (if that really matters).

my point was only to show that there are companies outside of the three who get the most show time at headfi. if you get out of the usa, there are even... many many more.

Simple answer: no.

Longer reason: I have owned or do own UE11s, Sensaphonics 2X-Ss, ES3Xs, and JH13s. I find that the JH13 is superior to each of those other IEMs in just about every category. If pressed, I would say that the ES3X with soft tips and the 2X-S (total soft silicone) are a tad more comfortable than a hard acrylic shell. But the sonic improvement with the JH13 far exceeds the comfort difference.

Also, keep in mind that I am currently going unamped out of an iPhone 3GS with 256 AACs and Apple Lossless files. My brief testing with portable amps over the past 2 months gives the JH13 a bigger sonic advantage.

Brittany is a self-described lurker here. She is following as much as possible.

I personally, I stress personally, find your post difficult to accept. It would be totally acceptable if it came from JH, but your feelings about the company, your wanting to give them a pass, your wanting to justify their one family operations.... is quite problematic. To say the least.

And, to tell you the truth, as far as I am concerned I had no problem whatsoever in not receiving a response from them within a day or two, except that I wanted to make sure that that was "normal".
Having been there as well, I will vouch that they are getting slammed and that the current workforce is a handful of Jerry's most-trusted soldiers in the industry. One thing that also has contributed to the lack of response over the last handful of weeks (according to Brittany last week) has been the various trips that she and/or Jerry have been making to various trade shows and gatherings with the Aviation and Audiophile lines. When they leave the shop there is nobody there to handle the admin work with the same efficiency. The rest of the crew are producing the IEMs and handling the artwork.

FWIW, I had a few emails that went unreturned from JHA. But I did receive my JH13s within a day or two of the window that Brittany gave me when I had my molds done at the shop.

...actually, I am out of the country for a few days but have a message on my home voicemail from United Airlines re: my lost baggage. Funny thing is that I do not have a lost baggage claim with them (and I have 75 flight legs this year). I think that there is a chance that my UE11s may have appeared (I gave them the serial number and it has my initials on them). I might possibly be able to do a proper A/B/C/D comparison with the JH13/UE11/ES3X/2X-S in the near future.

Good thing they already took care of my JHA bill...

From the size of the JH13's drivers, I see no reason why a universal 6-driver IEM won't come out in the next year or two.

Sorry for the thread blasting tonight. Been away for a few days and was catching up...

it'd be interesting to get users inputs on the other contenders especially, if possible, in comparison to these better known commodities.

Very good point.

However, I don't know if Jerry Harvey is really going to go into this area once again. I think because they wanted it to be boutique and small, because it was meant for musicians originally and not so much the mass market.

=)

But it'll be awesome for it to happen.

I am currently discovering some wicked synergy between my UE11pro and the Meier 3MOVE DAC/amp - which is very surprising as I would have guessed that the bass would be too much with this combo. In fact I can't complain about anything when listening to this combo (yet).
I was also surprised by the synergy of the UE11Pro with the Head-Direct EF2 DAC/amp, which normally has more bass with my HD600/800 than my ALO Amphora, and yet the UE11Pro bass is just right with EF2 and too much with the Amphora.
The JH13Pro on the other hand seem to sound good with everything.
i was speaking with bozebuttons earlier and he mentioned how much he loves his ue11s. he too finds them amp dependent. he reports the bass is terrific when paired with his larocco but is poorly controlled when paired with his portaphile, an amp that he is normally very fond of.
we await your findings () if and when you post your big custom iem review.

wow, that'd be great if they actually recover them (hopefully intact...)! i'm sure many would welcome a 4 way comparo. it's been a while since the sensas have gotten much attention around here. would the jh bill then become your responsibility? hmmm, mebbe you'd be better off if they're not recovered intact. well your wallet would benefit but the head-fi community would be poorer.

I too would be interested in a comparison between these iems, especially between the jh13's and the sensaphonincs since that is what I currently have.
