No, but Hockey could copy them to the first post in the thread and then update them regularly, if he were so inclined.

Yeah that would be great to help the newcomers out.

Let's see how quickly that changes by re-terminating this pair of 3 dual-cylinder engine madness and sticking them into a balanced rig. Yeaa!

Uh, Wow! Thank you for this! Very handy!

Sorry for make war here.
I just post what my feeling.

Due to they are so busy, so they might have some error on the productation.
For example,
1.My box is hurt when I get it.
2.The cable is too shor for me, although I ask for longer one when I place the order.
3.One people ask me, do JH 13 have the different color on the outside and earhole's location?


Finally, shoe one picture of my JH 13 PRO.
Now, I enjoy it and want to place the order for the longer cable.

Some review from Taiwan

Member in AA called moonlen have some comment for JH 13 PRO.
Just share to you guys.

I will translate and summary the point.

1.Without the amp, the JH 13 pro will similar to full set.
2.If you place the amp on JH 13, It might increas little but not huage.
3.If you have the excellent equipment, Just buy the full set. If the head set follow you all the time, Just get best IEM you can have.
4.If you want to replace the full set by JH 13 PRO. It will too exaggerated.

The Piccolino cables were about $550 for a 4 footer.

PM stevenkelby for a price on the Cardas 33g silver tone arm wire headphone cable - it does take some burn-in to remove the sheen on the highs, but then the highs are smooth (both cables).

The Jenna Labs cryo cable had more of a flavor of it's own, with a boost in the upper mids (good for Denon, bad for Livewires).

Currently Crystal Piccolino Cables for JH13 are 1067USD by my rough conversion and estimate of the exchange rate.

I paid my last bit of my bank account because the prototype lost a bit of connection and they upgraded the whole thing. They made it longer (my JH cable came longer than the usual JH cable and it's the same length as my JH cable) and improved on the connections and parts for the connections. It had improved bass extensions and highs extensions and overall a bit fuller body of sound in the lower mids.

That's a personal take. But hockey will be trying them out himself as he said so we'll see if there is a similar second opinion. =)

Anyway the JH13s are still the best in monitoring live shows thus far. =) Very glad and very appreciative of these little babies.

P.S. The one he'll be getting is not from me but the shop directly.
post #3024 of 10370
yeah, the piccolino cables have continued to go up and up and up in price. if they were still under $600, I would have bought one already, but not at the current price and with my wallet reelling from JH|13, Buff32 and everything to go along with that. i'll be a happy man within the next couple weeks, but i'm a scared, scared man at the moment . I have one that isnt too far off it anyway
post #3025 of 10370
Yup would understand. I just got too badly poisoned by the previous few versions... =X

But it kept improving. That's the scary part.

But I'll still be using the black JH13 cables for live shows, as the cables are to bling bling. HAHA

thanks for the positive feedback guys. i've pm'd hockey and asked him to link to both the meta impressions list and well as an earlier post yesterday about JHA and the 13s. if he puts them in his original post when he started the thread it'll increase the utility and user friendliness quotient greatly:

Do not confuse understanding with better hearing or being better at something. You may be the fastest guitar player out there but you might still be a bad/ mediocre musician. Somebody - old or young - may not be an audiophile, yet they may have a much deeper understanding of music & what music is about.

Perhaps you should go back and read some of my posts a little more slowly, and take a little time to think about them. But, then again, it's hard to ask a 16-year-old to do just that -- no offence - seriously.
I can't agree but I can't disagree. Over time the undestanding of the music is going deeper and much improved. But I AM 16 YO and my understanding of music is much better of many 20 and 40 or more YO.

So don't disparage.

I'm too lazy to research... especially when no one (or at least no one that I've seen) has ever balanced a pair of IEMs to talk about it.
actually there was a thread awhile back about balancing Etys (started by NC8000). i beleive Nikongod was amongst those who've 'been there, done that' - with positive results. if someone cares to search for it it may be of interest....

edit - found it: http://www.head-fi.org/forums/f4/wor...-er4-p-391729/

(sorry for the late reply - i'm in the midst of research for the meta-impressions thread)

also HPA had posted several pages back:

Franz Schubert died when he was 31. I'm relieved to hear that he would have made your "maturity cutoff"!
