Thanks =D!

 

And I wont freak out =P! After swapping between an LCD-2 and a HD700, nothing can surprise me anymore ._.!

 

Dear god does the HD700 sound tinny after using the LCD-2....

Ohhh I would love to hear your comparative impressions of the LCD2 (fazor version?) and the JH13 when you get it!

 

I've been in the lookout for an open headphone that I can use at home which is smooth sounding to complement the JH13's fun sounding forwardness. So far, most signs point towards the LCD2 ($1k range).

Oh don't you worry, I'll give you my impressions of the JH13fp in regards to the LCD-2 =D! I loved my LCD-2's to death, the only reason I parted with them is because I'm barely at home anymore, so the closest sound signature I could find was the JH13's!

 

Expect a reply on Wednesday :B.

Well, I've listened to them for around a total of 6 hours, the short listening time is due to the fact that I'm waiting till funds allow a FiiO X5 or a HM-650.

 

So far, the sound signature reminds me of the LCD-2 quite a lot actually, which surprised me! the major differences being it has a smaller soundstage and a slight tendency to be sibilant at times, though I attribute that sibilance to my Source/Amplification, because when I ran them through a FiiO x5, the highs were smoothed out and the mid range became quite lush.

 

People say the JH13FP tends to be bass light, that cannot be further from the truth ;-;! I've owned both the Westone UM30 and the Sennheiser IE80, both are known to have quite a lot of punch and depth in the Bass department ( The IE80's have too much bass mind you, which is why I sold them) , and the JH13FP rivals them in both aspects. Clean, Tight, and fast as **** without being overwhelming is what the JH13FP's Bass brings to mind.

 

More impressions to come!

 

And please excuse my poor sentence structuring, It's 12 am over here and I've nodded off twice writing this reply.

 

Bleh.

 

Making a video review once I get a portable player.

Thank you for the impressions! I agree with you that the JH13 does sound sibilant sometimes especially with different source/amps. Running the JH13 from my Schiit Modi2U/Magni2 makes it sound sibilant, while running it from the Fiio X1 makes it sound warm-ish and smooth-ish.

 

I am glad to hear that the LCD2 does sound similar to the JH13 (with bigger sound stage)! Also, no worries about the syntax, mine isn't very good either and I'm not sleepy. Looking forwards to your vid review!

Guys, what is the best option for upgrade cable of JH13?

My first choice will always be Norneaudio cables. no micro phonics and they tame the high end/sibilance of any IEM.

I have Litz cable from Headphonelounge from Ted himself. I wonder if anyone here has it, would compare it to other cables as well.
