Here you go. Still trying to get accustomed to the fitting. Hope its just me and not a misfit due to the impressions!

Give it time. Mine actually hurt for a while but have settled down.

Alright Kris. Thanks! Hope the fit will stabilize after some time. Sound-wise so far so good, they are like a virtuous wife who doesn't love things loud-

-on-the-contrary they performs optimally at "safe" / medium hearing volumes while the details swims around without glaring too much but just nice to appreciate them.

Trying to turn them a little louder and the upper mids starts to glare at you gradually. The treble region wise there is no sibilant issue for me.

When I see some reporting "sibilant" issues I wonder was it that same "glare" of the upper mids when volumes gets tilted north of what was ideal to listen to.

I do hope it goes that way for you as it did for me. Interesting what you are saying about volume. Can't say I have been aware of that. I'm still getting used to mine really.

They wont once run in. Play them loud for a few days and they will sound more extended and lose the glare. they're tight and will free up. The sibilance is just revealing of what's put in, at least on the fp version. I haven't had any problems with 'hot' recordings from decent sources.

It turns out that part of the glare is attributed to me setting DX90 on high gain (or rather, negligent to set to medium/low gain as the high gain setting was what I used for my other earphone namely the FX700)

While the glare in the upper mid is still there but no longer bothersome.

Fitting-wise my ear is starting to get accustomed to it, all that is left is for my external, upper earlobes to get used to the snug clinging from the acrylic shells!

Sounds like you are on your way!

I like mid gain as well but I'd bet the glare abates with time, at any gain setting.

Could be a fit issue—if one side fits a little better than the other and seals more, it can sound louder.

Check the bores are clean but I assume you did. The other thing to try is to tilt it a bit and see if the highs pop in. your ear geometry may be slightly restricting a bore or it's direct path. I had that issue and did a bit of home altering to correct. Not recommended if you like the warranty but I thought I could adjust and listen myself.:smile:

Bad news. Found a crack on the right side of the shell and has bloated a lil.

Sent it back through the dealer and it seems hopefully it will be back in a month's time.

I have spoken to my dealer about it and he said he will relay to JH side not to switch to the Roxanne 4-pin wherever possible.

It seems God just simply wants me to allocate more playtime for my other new playtoy (FX850).

Lets keep my fingers crossed that it shall return fixed and remained as the Westone 2-pin.

Thanks for the reply. Yes I had a feeling that could be the problem. Although it feels like I have a good seal in both ears.

Yep clean bores was the first thing I checked. Also thought that ear geometry might be the problem. What adjustments did you make?
post #10243 of 10358
BTW, does anyone have a way of cleaning the bores that does not end up pushing any wax further in?
post #10244 of 10358

I hold it upside down and put the wire loop into the tube and spin it - the wax should drop down....

post #10245 of 10358
Hmmm. I think my bores are possibly unusually small. My audiologist commented that there was not a lot of "real estate" to fit in three bores. I wouldn't get the loop tool into any of them.
