JH Audio JH-13 PRO appreciation thread - Page 607

post #9091 of 10101

I ordered a bottle of Eargene and Miracell Skin Relief lotion from a hearing aid products supplier via Amazon, so we'll see how those help. In the mean time Caleb at JH Audio came back to me advising it should be a simple adjustment to correct this problem by rounding off and tapering the tips ever so slightly, which could be done under the fit warranty.

it rubs the lotion on the skin.

In all likely hood no harm would come of it, and as you mention, it is something you always have with you!

 

 

you just need to brush your ears 3times a day.

 

seriously just be careful not to get lotion into your iems. we've got someone on a french forum who just killed a driver like that.

I want to buy a cable for my jh13pro(with freqphase). My budget is below $200. Any suggestion?Thank You!!!

If you're not in a hurry. Ted at Cablepro is building me a long crystal copper litz cable to try on mt FP JH13s. It's from a particular souce he likes and he's even careful about solder type. He doesn't use standard or silver solder on copper as he's got something better. Hyper Litz has the best phase character, the absolute widest bandwidth, most surface area, least strand interaction( theorehtically as good as solid core) and commonality of strand load (when wound correctly). Each strand is also individually insulated against oxygen so it will retain it's performance, smooth surface and shiney copper color forever. 100 or so strands in each 25ish ga wire in the braid will also be very flexable. A lot of what a fine stranded Litz is capable of is theorehtical overkill for this purpose but it should be in that price bracket and I couldn't think of a better way to do a cable. Probably be a few weeks but it should fit that price range and I'll report on how it works here.

Well I persevered with the Miracell lotion for a week or so, but in the end I've reluctantly conceded they're simply just a bit to big and so have to go back for a fit adjustment. frown.gif

 

Sad times as I was really enjoying the sound!

Should be an easy fix. bigsmile_face.gif

Overkill is the name of the game for pretty much everyone on here....

Agreed. plusSound is by far one of the best to deal with. Their site is organized, and their response times are pretty much second to none. In the past, I've received replies almost always within 2 hours. They're also one of the few non-overhyped cable builders on here, and they actually sometimes get overlooked compared to the others, which (sometimes) get (undue) attention.

Glad i saw these two quotes, I ordered a new portable amp and needed a custom mini to mini.   Ordered a cable today after I pelted them with questions first and sure enough, Chritian was right on it, answered all quickly so i ordered.  I am curious to see the final product too.  Here's the link again..   http://www.plussoundaudio.com/

So I guess they didn't get the email where I asked for my money back either!

 

Ah well, will get the IEM's at least, and will see what their service is like after that. 

 

So far, am not very impressed. Perhaps they only really want to look after local clients, and not international ones. 



Gary is the worst person to speak to. Got my bad experience to communicate with him. He is rude and his answers/comments were abrupt and useless.

Brittany, the co-owner of JHAudio was more helpful and considerate.
