post #10201 of 10487

Why the hell do they need 4 pins? Are there 4 pins in the connector? There is no logic here - unless some famous musician showed up at the lab with a bunch of white powder. Talk about a "rush" job! I have done a little defending of JH lately, but to switch out the cables on their regular line without mentioning it to the customer - who may have a lot invested in cables with two pin connectors - is pretty odd...

4 pins because the new cable comes with a bass pot, just like the Roxanne?

White boy translucent?

Lucky for me I don't have a large inventory of 2-pin cables... I have read in some other thread that JH intends to switch their entire line up to using the 4-pin connector cable. What i dont understand is why those who received their JH16s or 13s about the same time as me or after me and posted photos have the 2-pin connectors in use. This is confusing.. :confused_face_2:

Yes, they do have 4 pins in the connector.

Yup, it comes with the bass adjusting knobs.

If they are trying to phase in the 4-pin cable, then they're bound to do it at one point or another. It might be the case that your order just came in at a bad time.
Btw, how do you find the bass adjustment pot? Is it any good with the 13's, or more of a gimmick?

2 woofer drivers. One could be variable to adjust down. A jh13 is never bass shy. It could also be just to get more current to the earphone with less back voltage (noise) between the drivers by effectively bi-wiring. I hear the new type cables also sound better than the old ones.

On the JH13 the bass adjustment make a significant and obvious difference. More control over the sound signature is always better.. The only bad thing is that the adjustment pot is a little large making it more troublesome to keep in the JHA case.. It's only slightly shorter than the diameter of the case..

Man I've got to admit I'm a bit jealous. I'm actually occasionally finding the 13's bass a bit excessive at times, so a bit of flexibility in adjusting the bass region really appeals to me. Plus that I'm really digging the looks of the 4-pin cable.

I forgot that included in the 4 pin connector was a bass level control - now it makes perfect sense - oops, brain fart. :o

Hi Catalyst. Did it occurred when you opted for another pin connector type (e.g Westone 2-Pin) stated in black & white-

-then they just sent you your JH13FP with 4-pin connectors without any prior notice? Thanks =)

The default connectors up to date have always been the 2-pin type. I believe that catalyst's case is one where JHA is applying the 4-pin system into previous model, but it would have been nice of them to notice and get his approval before making the change. I wouldn't be happy if I was having a TWag/Silver Dragon/etc...aftermarket cable in my hands and found out that they'd be at least temporarily obsolete for my newly arrived monitors.

I wonder if this is possible for older ones or only newer ones

Be interesting to have the adjustable bass on my 16s though I would hate to lose out on using my silver cables

Anyone else have the 13/16s with 4 pin connector? I saw a few people tweet pics in the Roxanne thread but that's it

Would likely need a rebuild to use the 4 pin connector - otherwise no direct connection to low frequency drivers.

Dis.  I wonder if the 16 has more treble than the 13 because of it's boosted bass?  Also, is there a difference in the size of the stage between the 13 and 16?

Yeah, I thought so. Hopefully its not like freq phase

Either way I'm very happy with my 16fp but adjustable bass would be neat.
