Thanks, goodvibes. Those are iPhone pics under lamp light; my ES5s look better in person.
Most important, they sound just great. I am listening to them for the first time with my iMod (arrived the same day). This is a whole new ballgame. I love a magical soundstage and these are doing more than I thought possible for something inserted discreetly in my ears.
You are right that the correct comparison is to the JH13s. HPA's review is pending.
