Oh yeahh. Thanks for reminding me. Now I remember Ricey's impression/comparison. Wow... I think I've partially come to my conclusion of my purchase decision. It's probably going to be the JH - nope, the ES3X. Seems like while the JH13 is technically superior, a few are noting that they don't emphasize the mids like the ES3X does (Westone meant for the ES3X's function to be somewhere in between for studio monitoring and audiophile listening); and I recall at least a couple ES3X owners (HPA and someone else) commented on the ES3X's magical mids. Most of the music that I listen to is oriental and is vocal-centric. The oriental string instruments in my favorite music vibrate mostly in the mids. Pila, I can imagine that from all of these impressions in this thread, you'd probably have enjoyed the JH13's more. :P
I haven't totally made up my mind, at least, until the good man posts his impressions and comparisons.
