Yes. I thought I was the only one lol. But I'm constantly hearing "sczsczccs..." even on well mastered tracks that I know aren't sibilant on my HD800s and 650s.
Glad I'm not the only one... but terrified if this will stay.
Straight out of my phone and laptop as well as through my VentureCraft SounDroid Typhoon and my desktop rig (Modi/WA6). It's present in all these cases. Weird. :/
I had a lot of sibilance with my JH16, which was very different to what other people were reporting.
I cant say I hear sibilance with my JH13, in fact I would say that mine make the highs slightly creamier and less harsh than the original JH13. I can tell when a track is not very well mastered and where my other IEMs produce sibilance, the JH13 don't.
I have found that a number of factors can determine how sibilant\bright a track can sound - from the format of the music, to how well its been mastered, to the hardware I am using, to how well the CIEMs fit.
I'm sorry, but your 13 - piece of ****. Problems in the midrange, dismissed the background vocals, bloated bass (headphone manufacturers have generally been on live performances?). Perhaps headphones are designed for listening to genres such as rap and hip-hop? In that case, I take that back.

Too bad the money spent, but such a nerd like me does not stop and I am still in search of the ideal ciem for me.
I have a AK100 with RWAK mod. iPhone5 has low impedance output. Maybe it's because of poor workmanship. One earphone shorter than the other, the left ear strongly presses the outer side, a second very short and does not provide good seal while I move. It's a bad, because the ear impressions were made not for the first time and I know how to behave with it.
What's more surprising is frozen fingerprints on the shell. Great quality, guys! :D
