What phone do you use?

I have the HTC One S and I'm very unhappy with that combination.

I get a constant hum, and when I touch the screen or buttons I get distortion in form of pops and clicks. Another problem is volume control, too few steps, it's either to loud or to low.

 

The HTC One S is supposed to be a music phone, pathetic in my opinion,

 

 

Cheers!

 

No. I bring the JH3a to work and listen to them "amped" at work. Anywhere else is in an unamped state. More so for blocking external noises (light rail, bus). THe phone of choice is my Nexus S. Older phone, but I use google play to stream so not a big deal for accuracy.

I regretted seeing reviews and now i hate the JH16 as i spent so much and its bad when i change the cables to a premium one.

Don't change cable if you don't like the premium, no one forces you to do it.

 

May I know where can I demo it in the US or Hawaii?

 

Edit: I have been thinking for a long time to replace my current earphone. I think it is time.

anyone using custom cable for your JH16 or JH13? 

post #3172 of 3684

Toxic Cables Scorpion, it is excellent, great bass, great bass impact, sweetens up the mids, and highs sound great too.  More 3D soundstage.

I've used the following with my JH16:

- Toxic Cables Scorpion

- Toxic Cables Silver Poison

- Piccolino

- Toxic Cables Hybrid

- Whiplash Hybrid (V2)

- Whiplash TWag V2

- Whiplash TWag V3

 

I kept coming back to the Silver Poison. You might want to look into that one.

Received my jh16 made based on my impression on jh audio's records but the fit is very off. Really hope to resolve the fit issue once and for all cos shipping is costly and the process is time consuming. Since it is quit hard to explain where exactly is wrong, do you guys think I should made a new impression or send my existing jh custom with good fit to them to help to identify the problem?

Really regret not sending a new impression and just rely on the impression on records. Did anyone manage to get them to remake the mould instead of making adjustments to the existing pair? Wonder if they can remake and if so, can do it based on another pair of custom instead of a new impression frown.gif

Mine went back a couple of times for adjustment and they're still not 100%. However, as the cost of sending them back mounts up, I am just going to live with the slight misfit.

Mine were not remoulded, just adjusted.

 

I would take a number of photos of the JH16 in your ears and then make notes of what and where the problems are on the photos.
