On the spot, the Jaben staff advised that I should sent it back for repair since its within a week and totally counts as a manufacturing defect, the estimation from the Jaben staff was a month-

-and here I am still counting, hopefully it will be back before the second month of departure.

=(

If I may chime in here, perhaps one of the factors for the increased waiting time for re-fits is due to Jaben's shipping procedure. If I'm not mistaken, Jaben tends to do `bulk' shipping to reduce shipping costs; so, they may have waited for a week or two to compile any refit(s) and new order(s) (ear impressions etc.) before shipping them to JHAudio.

OMG I was expecting 1 month or less but yours definitely makes me considering to send it back now after submitting the form.

If you're dealing with them directly, I believe that should be fine.

Most probably, Jaben does has a "famous" track record for their defective handling.

I don't mind waiting just a little more as long as the defects get rectified nicely without any recurrences in the near future. =)

Yes, the time needed is about 5 weeks, my seria is 19311.

My JH13s are up for grabs if anyone is looking for a cheaper way to get their hands on these babies :)

Do you mind sharing the reason for selling?

I wanted a less aggressive, more laid back presentation with more midbass.

So the fp version.;):tongue_smile:

post #10330 of 10335

I've heard the FP version is actually lighter on bass from people who believe in sound changes with the FP version, and that they are the exact same drivers from a different batch number from those who don't.

FP is created by the sound tubes rather than anything to do with drivers AFAIK.
post #10332 of 10335

I've been tempted to sell my JH13 FP every now and then but whenever I put them on I quickly change my mind. I can never pull the trigger on these.

Pick up another set of cables. I ordered the noble cable today which is an improved Magnus, and the price $40 shipped in the US. I can't wait until it arrives.
