What are you guys using to carry around your JH13s. I've been using the mini UE case that came with my 11s, but I keep getting confused which iems I have with me. I need something small and protective that I can toss in my purse. Any ideas?

I use the semi soft case (small) that you can get from Westone for 5 dollars. It provides ample protection and takes up minimal room. It has a little pocket that placed the cleaning tool in and a 1/4 to 1/8 adapter (I use them to listen to used CD's before purchasing).

These
Shure use the same design cases. They are really sturdy and portable. You could get these if you needed the extra space.

Is it the universal monitor case found here? Accessories | Musicians :: Westone

Yes. They used to be 5 dollars. They are a nice case. I have had the same two for about 4 years.

That’s quite a positive statement regarding your UE11s. It suggests that you still use them.

I just use the little case that came with my UE10s, and tucked the UE10s into that big thing that the JH13s came in. Please let us know if you find a better way!

As much as I love my JH13, I'd still like to have a high-end studio monitor setup for times when I would rather use speakers. Or a high-end 7.1 audio system for movies. Etc.

Just as an Ariel Atom and a Ferrari 612 might both be incredible performers, they have different uses. I can't have a bunch of friends over to listen to my JH13. I can't take my studio monitor system on a plane, or out in the back-country.

I meant my statement in terms of usage, not performance. At this point, I've never heard a headphone I'd rather listen to than my JH13.
I'll weigh in here.

I have a pretty nice setup in my smallish Brooklyn house: an Aura Note, 4.5" single driver Omega speakers, good cables. I really like how it sounds.

I'm listening to my JH13s right now through an iMod/vcap/iQube setup. (For those who know iMods and interconnects, I'm about to post a query on Portable Sources and would welcome your help...) The SQ is way better in terms of tone balance - bass, mids, and highs are all where they should be -- tone quality - each range sounds great -- detail - lots of detail that gets lost with the speakers is very, very clear - and instrument and voice separation. Even the silence and space in the music is cleaner and deeper. I've personally never heard a speaker system that did all that as well.

The JH13 soundstage is clearly narrower. The clarity and location of each instrument is so amazingly distinct, though, that it sort of feels wider.

It's also just...different. The speakers sound like speakers, and you can hear the wood of the enclosures, like you can in an acoustic instrument, which I like. You can hear the room in the music, which interferes with getting the setup perfect, but it's also part of the experience, which I also like. Maybe because I grew up with speakers and am used to/imprinted on that sound.

One view.

Sending my UE-10's to Florida tomorrow to be scanned.

Excited!

Can't decide on a color or texture. Most of you guys know me. Any suggestions?
post #2531 of 10370
Thanks for the case recs, folks.

Aaron, are you getting art or no? Are you planning on using them with your green and gold tomahawk?

What took so long? :^) For some reason I thought you already had a pair. I think some motion art work would be sporty>

That would make you the cool dude. The one problem I do have with these is I can't get them out of my ears. Really.. Well I do get them out but like a magnet they go right back in!

I have been in "high end" equipment for many years having used tube equipment for many of those. Now the one big issue often with high end equipment is you have to "get everything just right" or the speakers don't sound right because they have to be amped with plenty of current and a stereo amp won't work, nope, you need a mono for the bass, and one for those mids and tweeters on those biwired speakers then get that preamp out of whack or . . . .

These IEM's aren't in the least way picky. They sound great out of my modified iRiver H140, better out of the D10 or even more so out of the OEM plugged into the D10 but they all are musical, enjoyable and I could live with any combination. How is that for "high end"? It sets a new standard if you ask me.

Life gets in the way John (wife's unemployment). I sold my Panerai and my Blue Circle Audio Amp so I could buy some new stuff.

I haven't looked into artwork since there are complaints of fuzzy images and it seems that the artwork is not the JH-13's strongest point.

I would like my turntable avatar or an cartoon-ation of my motorcycle (hey, I can dream, can't I?):

post #2534 of 10370
I don't get it.....they are using the same guy that did ue's artwork is it the machinery that is causing this issue which mine don't apparently have?

I have heard many a high-end set up; both headphone and full-sized system related. I completely agree with you here. It just gets so painful and complicated. On top of that, there is always something better around the corner. Since I have joined this forum, I have now become a monk. Give me simplicity at all costs. I think the JH-13 Pro will fit the bill. Now, I am waiting for reviews of how the JH-13 Pro sounds out of the HiFiMan portable music player. This should be a killer combo and better yet, I could shove it all up my sleeve. Magic.
