I see what you're saying, but I feel the need to point out that there are some real technology differences bewtween the three "flagship" models.
Have a look at Jerry's lineup, and you'll see clearly that Jerry has aligned his top tier IEM's to compete very directly with specific models of other manufacturers, and to do so at a better price:
The 10x3 compares technologically with the ES3X, and beats it, price wise.
The JH11 compares with the UE11, and beats its price.
The JH13 stands alone as a 6 driver, 3 way piece, and STILL beats the price of the UE11.
Please take this for what it's worth. While I am a JH13 owner and lover, I do not say this as a fanboy.
I'm just pointing out that, when looking into the purchase of a custom IEM, one might consider that one of the 3 major players happens to have 2 other "sleeper" models that compete against, and may even beat, the flagship models of the other guys.
To me, that's pretty impressive, and it's overlooked when limiting the scope of the discussion to ONLY the top IEM of each manufacturer.
So, the boiled down, short reply to the post above:Ok, but what about Jerry Harvey's 10x3 Pro at $799????
By the way, I really enjoyed reading the review, Larry. It's well written, and done from a perspective few can give (side by side comparison of all 3 "flagship" IEM's). I don't know of anyone else in a position to write such a review.
