For people like me the price is only about a $100 (plus time) more since I already have impressions on file with UE's.

Yeah, I'm thinking he UE11 is the way to go for bass lovers wanting uber customs. Hopefully they will come down a bit price wise.

Thanks for the UE update!

Why?

If I prefer ATH CK100 over TF10 Pro, does it mean UE18Pro should be the better choice for me (over JH13 Pro)?
post #110 of 280
No, its the other way around.
I think.
post #111 of 280
Now it seems that my choices are narrowed down to:
JH 13 Pro vs JH 16 Pro?

Is it possible that if I am not satisfied with JH13 Pro, I pay $50 more and whatever the reshell cost is, and get them to turn my 13 Pro into a 16 Pro?

No one can answer that, except JHA themselves.

nope, someone in the jh16 thread asked them and that is not an option.

I just made my ear impression and it has come down to which address I'm gonna put down on the box. The audiologist said I need to mail it out pretty soon, otherwise the size of the impression will shrink. Can I still wait for 1 or 2 more days before I decide?

If it isn't for the news of JH-16 Pro coming out, it would be a no brainer for me to get JH-13 Pro, because from all that I have read it would sound more neutral. On the other hand I think the UE18 Pro would be equally top-notch and would be more fun.

I never said I disliked the TF10 Pros, just that I preferred the sound signature of ATH over the 10 Pro. TF10 Pro was a bit cold to me, and ATH CK100 provides details yet at the same time preserves the warmth of (especially) femal vocal.

Ok so here is my plan: Get UE18 Pro first and then wait for reviews of JH16Pro to come out, and then decide whether I should get 13 Pro or 16 Pro. I can afford two of these 6 driver+ monsters, and probably all three of them, but it would be a waste not spending enough time on any of them simply because I get 3 of them...

Still unsure which address to put down on the box... Any suggestions?

Basically , jh16 is just a jh13 with more emphasized bass, thats all , according to jerry harvey.

You could take the leap and pre-order either JH16 or UE18, provided you don't mind getting more bass if there is more bass. JH13 still seems to be the most neutral among the 3 tho, so...

Just did. I debated on the JHs or these and figured might as well stick with a brand that's true and tried [for me].

I thought it was like a JH13 that is less likely to experience clipping if you EQ the bass up and play it loud (for more dynamic while performing on stage).

Anyone know anything about the 18s' neutrality/accuracy?

I meant things would be clear, not the cable.
