Finally, got it earlier than expected. Now listening to it, while working in my office.
I'll reserve my impression of it to another time cos I wonder if burn in is needed.

Quick notes:
The cable is now the same as those in Westone 3, so imo it is better.
The box is indeed now Otter Box. It is very tight and a tad difficult to close, but it just need a few practise.

Yes, I found burn in really helped them open up.

UHGH.
I can't decide on which color i should order...

I'm thinking a darkish royal blue, or transparent smokey black...

both are pretty common... I'm a blue fiend however. if i could, i'd order everything in blue, which is why i'm considering black... a change.

However, it seems everyone is doing black.

indecision is a.... well not a nice thing.

I think these are much better deal than dual drivers.
Well, while always nice in theory, spending $1100+ on a set of earphones is not in the cards for me now or in the forseeable future. That's just way too much money. And as that's more than twice as much as either the JHAudio or Alien Ears...totally different product.

I'm trying not to lose sight of the fact that these are going to be secondary, portable earphones and don't need to be the best on the market to listen to 128k mp3s while on a treadmill.

True. If you are just going to use them at the gym, JH5 will do just fine. I was just suggesting to go with higher-end since you will be most likely stuck with custom IEM. When I got C3, I wanted to upgrade so much but resale value was really bad. I ended up selling them at $150 I think and upgraded them to higher-end customs. Now that I think about it, if I went with them earilier I could have saved a lot of money. But again, if you know sure that you will be happy with JH5 (I think you will be), then I highly recommend them (not alien ears tho).

the left impression looks a bit odd like there is a indentation in it to my eyes but I am sure Brittany knows what works and what doesn't

frankly speaking the impressions aren't very well done. yes, left is to out of shape.
post #114 of 1056
Yea, unfortunately it looks like they missed part of the Helix on the left impression.

i've already spent a lot of money, and am running out of options here...
Bring them back to your audiologist, and make them make you a new pair for free. Point out the problem, and that you need the Helix to be completely filled. If they refuse to do it, then your audiologist must suck and inexperienced as if they have made it 4 times and never gotten it right once, then there is definitely a problem. Looks like the biggest problem in fit is your impressions and not JH Audio.

Nice!

Who wants to guess when I ordered my JH5's,,??? AUGUST 6th!!! it has been about 2 months and a week or two, isn't that crazy, and I just sent them back again... requested purple non trans shells, and this time I included a color card... hopefully it works out!
