Panasonic CZs (HJE900) Appreciation Thread and Pending Review - Page 56

post #826 of 872

Question for HJE900 owners: what do you use to store them in? I find the included leather pouch somewhat insufficient, and I've tried using a padded Altoids tin, but to no avail. I kind of like the cases that come with the MEElectronics A151 & the old version of the VSonic GR07. Is there somewhere I can get something similar?

Check this case out.

Came with my HJEs when I bought them not too long ago on the FS thread. They perfectly coil in that case, which is much smaller than it looks in the picture. There's even a small tiny pouch inside that you can use for extra tips. Seems like it was made for the HJEs (which are my favorite headphone/iem ever. I'm afraid I won't be able to find any headphone to be better, but that's another story lol).

 

EDIT: Just saw that you had seen that very same case with the A151. Well in case you didn't know you could purchase it separately, there you go. ksc75smile.gif

I'm now considering the DT 1350 first, though. I hope it'll not disappoint.



Do I dare ask how they compete? ph34r.gif popcorn.gif

A hard shell case for $5? I might just buy it... If nothing else to store extra tips... Granted, I don't think the HJE's particularly need a hard case... they are the best built IEMs I've ever owned. But the pocket for tips is enough to warrant the $8 investment.

Trust me, you will not be disappointed. The case is so handy and it feels so good to have that protection for such wonderful IEMs. Plus it can be easily placed in your pocket without worry of damage to the HJEs.

Damage the HJEs? I already replaced the cable... Dropped them on the ground...twice... And changed the tips 5 times... And they still look as good as they did when I first bought them a year and a half ago! If there is something that can damage them, I sure as hell haven't found it (granted I hear a hammer can do a number on them, but I don't think I'll be trying that out).

 

But yeah, the selling point for me is the tip pouch.

It's funny, because that's the exact case that came with my A151s. I should've realized that they sold the case separately on the website. I was thinking about getting a hard cover case [something with a metal/hard plastic exterior] but for a mere $5, it's kind of hard to pass up.

 

On a completely off-topic slant, I'm considering getting the Cowon J3 to complement my Clip+ as a portable source....

I use this case for my Monster Turbine in ears (instead of case that came with them) it looks pretty good and has a hard feel to it and offers good protection, though it's $9 but there are some cheaper ones on amazon.com and ones without a name too.  http://www.amazon.com/Earbuds-Travel-Case-JBuds-Black/dp/B000PIYTEK/ref=sr_1_3?ie=UTF8&qid=1319257623&sr=8-3

I have a J3, its a great player. I use that for my every day player, and I have the Clip+ as my workout player. They are both amazing devices.

Hey does anyone know how these wonderful HJEs compare to some modded T50RPs? Could they sound just as natural timbre-wise? I've gotten input from one other head-fier but if anyone has heard both, I'd appreciate your impressions. 

post #836 of 872

Anyone know how to open up the buds?

One side decided to fade out and now no more sound.

I had them for about a year but rarely used them.

post #837 of 872

Sounds like the cable connection is jacked up. Try twisting it and reconnecting it if that fails you can always buy a sa6 replacement cable since it uses the same connection. If you want to open them (DO AT YOUR OWN RISK) id take some rubber bands and wrap them around the ends of 2 pliers so you don't scratch the shells and twist the two apposing ends counter clockwise to each-other.This should break the epoxy holding the shells but that procedure should be a last resort again i recommend trouble shooting the connection or buying a new cable but if all else fails try opening them but carefully.

Since HJE900s will work with the Sleek Audio cable, has anyone tried Sleek's Kleer wireless adapter / cable with HJE900s?

I heard noise using Sleek SA6s with Kleer wireless and iPhone 3gs (no noise with Sansa Clip or HM-801), so I wonder if changing to HJE900s will kill the noise. I assume it will, since HJE900s are dynamic drivers with lower sensitivity?

post #839 of 872

It might given the resistance it might be less sensitive to hiss and such give it a go and post back with your findingsbiggrin.gif

post #840 of 872

^ LOL..that is not what I want to hear.

HJE900s are still around $100 used though, which is out of my current budget. Unless someone here wants to trade with me.
