I have noticed the wider sound stage on my JH 13, but it lacks the boom of bass I had with the triplefi 10, and I like nice bass.
So what are my options to increase the bass on my JH 13, does it mean I must buy a portable headphone amp, which one?, I was thinking getting the ibasso d10 too pair up with my iriver with its optical out.
Also would getting replacement cable for my JH 13 pro help, was thinking about getting Elite TWag Replacement Cable 48".
Thanks for any suggestions.
I also wished for slightly more bass from the JH13 when listening to it unamped out of my iPhone. I have since had a refit, which helped when listening unamped.
However, to me, an amp makes all the difference. Using the TTVJ Portable, the bass on the JH13 slams. It's not boomy, but still has that satisfying bump when it goes low.
So I recommend an amp. I also don't recommend looking to cables to make a big difference, if any.
