Can we have some of you guys share the totall cost of the entire chain that needs to get done to get this wonderful IEM.
ear-impression > delivery cost to JH audio > the IEM it self > art cost? > delivery back > customs fee? taxes?
(Specially intressted in deliverys to europe, since Ive very rarely order stuff from the other side of the world)

Aswell as share to totall wait time from sending the impressions to reciving it.

Need some good replys on this before I can be entierly sure to try fill the urge you managed to build up with this thread!

I'm in the UK so this should give you a good idea of costs.

£20 - Impressions
£5 - Postage to JHA
£715 - JH13's (last Fridays exchange rate) Including Express Shipping (For what it's worth)

Artwork is $50 unless you choose the JHA 'Logo' or 'Flying Angel' that is FOC, I chose the JHl13 Pro logo same as Jude's.

VAT is obviously 15% of the marked value (read between the lines there)

Lead time from receiving impressions varies for some reason but mine took just over 2 weeks to ship out. Then UPS will deliver whenever they feel like it (sorry guys had to have one final dig ).

The iPhone 3G is great without an amp, but I would use an amp with my 4G Nano or 5.5G iMod or my daughter's 2G Touch. If you want to improve the sound over the iPhone 3G headphone-out, they work well with the P-51 Mustang and Pico and Predator and D10, and several more but those are my top choices.

See my review where I looked at amp synergy with the JH13Pro. Review: Three Flagship Custom IEM - Westone ES3X vs Jerry Harvey JH13Pro vs Ultimate Ears UE11Pro - Head-Fi: Covering Headphones, Earphones and Portable Audio

Just received mine. Perfect. None of the issues ahhian faced. Also I heard from UPS China that JHA cleverly declared it as worth under $10US, so it cleared customs in 10 seconds. (my last amazon purchase, a lousy book, took 2 weeks because it was >$50)

me too!!!! no cosmetic issues, fit is perfect; even the case is pretty much perfect with only a couple of tiny minor blemishes that you have to really look for. the SQ is totally amazing hooked up to both iriver->D10->Lisa III and also to my surprise, this rig is bettered by my new duelund copper foil dock with DIYMOD and Lisa III. I think the preciseness of the JH13 means that they sound superb with slightly musical gear synergies.

mine was declared at $10 too, not that it matters so much here as we can have up to $1000AUD without issue or tax.

i'm still confused about the shipping fee, as the carbon fibre case is smaller than I thought it would be and incredibly light. so I think they need to look into that, because an item without insurance weighing this little really should only be costing $20-30 to be shipped at that rate. doesnt matter though, its all over now and although they took longer than the form would suggest and I still believe I pad too much, the fact they are here, they are perfect and I have them for this weekends HF meet is enough for me to forget about it an just get on with 'appreciating them' will post pics and first impressions later on

Glad to hear everyone is getting their JH13 without refits or cosmetic issues!

The package does seem to be extremely light since the case is carbon fiber (which is light as paper...), and charging that much to ship them is quite a mystery...

I don't own the JH13, but got my 10X3 today without any problems. JH put $50 on my declared value. As very smart idea, cause UPS likes to charge me Custom charges for every package that comes from the US...

Next message has better picture.

Picture, taken with my Communicator. Got the smoke black, with the same one character in my Chinese name written in two different calligraphic styles. It's actually quite translucent, more than I'd imagined it would be.

Yeah this particular variation of "Wei" is pretty rare, and I'm a huge calligraphy nut so I decided to go with this (esp. after seeing how well Yukari's calligraphy turned out).

Its seems more clear than black to me jelt. Or is it the camera flash?
post #3779 of 10094
Yes, I would be interested in getting "smoke black" too, but in the photo it looks very clear. I wonder if I could order them a tad smokier.
post #3780 of 10094
This photo was taken without flash. That's why I mentioned that it was clearer than I had expected.. It was taken in a bright environment though. Now that I look at it at night, it's probably the exact same shade as Yukari's: http://www.head-fi.org/forums/f103/j...2/index95.html
