I have placed an order for the ES5s.. will gladly do a comparison with the Shure SE535 since there is none yet.

Skullbox, what's with the talking-to-yourself in this ancient thread?

post #333 of 343

I remember this thread. It was my favourite thread ever, both for the amount of work that went into it, and the anticipation that was the waiting process for it (of course, nowadays when we think of anticipation, nothing beats the JH3A threads.. but this was of a different nature :))

 

Still a fantastic read.

EDIT2: IS JERRY HARVEY AN ALIEN?


Have you hear the ES5 Westone flagship? I think this will be the one ! Topnotch! I still waiting for a review!    basshead.gif

Perhaps HPA was trying to be unbiased to the point of "they are all somewhat similar and will make you happy" Fact is, almost all JH13 owners (who also own UE11) say that the JH13 bests the UE11 on all fronts.
Yeah, we seem to share the same perception.

I had mentioned in the JH13pro thread that I hadn't observed anyone who preferred the ES3X to the JH13pro. Another member commented that there had been a couple of owners of both IEM's that had, indeed, preferred the ES3X. I don't remember seeing those posts (not saying they didn't occur).

There does seem to be a bit of an inconsistency between my perception of the responses to the JH13pro with those of the other high-end customs.

HPA's review seems to suggest they're more similar in quality than I would've predicted based on my prior observations.


It's all Depending of the kind (style/genre) of music you listen most., maybe some prefer the JH13, other UM11, or other ES3x or why not ES5. All ears are differents. Important point for me, is to get an IEM that will surpass all the IEM i hear before. Not the one peoples say to be the best of the world...

I guess I will DO buy the HD800 with WA22/WA6-SE/DNA Sonett-BV
I guess it match better my taste after reading some reviews.


Maybe your preference go with Headphones over IEM! This is two world! HD 800 is a bit heavy on the road, for me!  ;-)  For home, its Sen flagship!

Monkey, it depend of you wallet, your music preference, your frequency response your ear can handel...JH13 best for another, maybe not for you. You need to a comparaison tests like Larry, to find YOU best IEM!! This is my personal opinion! Some agree??  wink_face.gif

Are y'all serious.The one thing I've learned from this site is DUH! After a certain level it's all personal reception. If one of you blokes used sound diction and scientific, or blind studies. I might listen to you. Haha I said listen

I forgot to add my JH16Pro review link here, but it was fun reading this review again after so many months. Wow I talk too much in this review...

Wondering if there will be anything new at RMAF this year.  Hope not, I can't afford it!
