I have gotten to the point where I really I'll not make any judgements until after 200+ hours on anything. Prior to that I will simply enjoy playing with each new toy.biggrin.gif

Where did you find the version numbers?

In IPhone Settings -> General -> About -> HP-P1

 

Also, my Serial number begins with "Beta".

 

Note:  To check the above settings, you need to have your IPhone connected to HP-P1 and HP-P1 needs to be on.

I'll hook it up and see what I get. Right now I am using an iPod classic 7G filled with lossless AIFF files connected to the HP-P1. I am loving it. As is generally the case with better gear you need better quality sound files to get the most out of them. I am seriously considering the JH16's for a reference item. At the moment I have my Etymotic hf3's with the ACS custom inserts and my Sennheiser HD25-1 ii's. Gotta say the bottom end is really solid and I am really happy with the HP-P1 right out of the box. I am interested to see what some burn in time will do....biggrin.gif

I also have Beta starting my serial #.

Firmware Rev.  1.1.1

Hardware Rev. 1.1.2

 

Neat how you access it....

My continued favorite is still the CLAS with the Alo Rx3. For use with the JH16 I would order it with the low gain set lower so that you get some increased volume range. But the sense of space, dynamics and texture is still amazing me over three months later. I have almost stopped usi g my home rig.

I looked long and hard at that combo....We'll see how the HP-P1 works out, I can always shift later...(Bloody hobby...evil_smiley.gif)

I did check with the company because it was strange that a serial number would start with "Beta"... After checking with them... It's suppose to start with "Beta".

 

Also the Firmware & Hardware are the latest version.

Good to know. I am certainly enjoying the HP-P1. How long a wait did you have for your JH16's after they received the impressions?

I paid an extra $100 to get them within 2 weeks.... but I believe it normally takes 1 month.

 

I think there's a fit issue with my right side...  Going back to audiologist... most likely to have it re-fit.

I am glad I had a good impression with my ACS customs for the hf3's. Strange experience with the goo in my ear..biggrin.gif

These are my first custom IEM's and still getting used to the feel of them.  But after receiving JH16, Audiologist went on vac for a week...   So I wasn't able to go back for him to check...  First couple of days... had trouble getting my right side to go in... without hurting...  Now... it just slips right it.  Don't know if ear adjusts...   I'm still going to him because after some time... it feels a bit uncomfortable...

 

I'm glad I went to a audiologist that is a dealer... instead of me trying to describe my issue over the phone with JH Audio... I'll be going back to audiologist and have him check fit.

My JH16 fits but after about a week of continuous usage, the left side does not fit as well and the entire sound skews towards the right. I have to stop using them for about 3-4 days and then start using them again for the problem to subside. This is after about 6 refits and absolutely unacceptable for an IEM that costs $1,100+.

 

I am tired of the JH16 having fit problems and might consider selling it and getting a custom IEM that just fits and is comfortable. I am seriously disappointed as the sound is spectacular, but JH cannot deliver on fit (and my audiologist is an authorized JH Audiologist on the site).

 

I might end up getting the Westone ES5. What are the best fitting custom IEMs that have had very little complaints on fit?
