Well, I think it will be hard to adhere to rule #2 if you want a significant departure from your 530's.  The IEM world has undergone quite a boom in the last few months in terms of SQ for BA, MA, dynamic driven phones.  If you like the 530's the SM3 seem to be the phone for you.  I used to have 530's long ago and am now a dynamic driver convert however, can't say if thats the route for you or not.

Now all you need to do is to record music in uncompressed format in your MD player I will say it is still pretty high-end by today standard.


When I first started the hobby, it used to take 2~3 yrs to get a new flagship, but since 2008 we practically see a new flagship every year from different manufacturers because of how fast the industry is moving (probably have to do with how fast Apple is doing flagship these days). I can understand why you want to have at least 6 months of waiting to avoid getting caught in FOTM, though the truth is by the time you actually get an upgrade, the feeling that it will probably be outclassed in less than 6 months is fairly depressing, so to speak.

x2  The PMP and cellphone market are definitely driving the IEM markets speedy development.  Massive cash cow keeps growing every month.

Utdeep I go through the same pattern here as you since I came back to head-fi a couple months ago I have got a mustang, Westone 3, a Cardas cable for my HD600, my Shure E500 are being reshelled, and I am looking at the SM3, JH 13 or 16. So I wish I could help but at least you know you are not alone. Best of luck.

Darn it.  JH16 Pros for me.  I'm not going to stray far enough from my rules for the JH-3A... I figure I need some money for the iPhone 4G.

Hopefully, I can upgrade to the inevitable JH-5 in 3 months :)  Until then, I go from DAC to RSA Mustang to JH16 Pro for my laptop rig.

Hehehe, looks like they got you after all. I guess the hype is just too much to take....

Great choice that you won't regret. There is a lot of hype behind JH Audio but, their products live up to the hype and more.

Sorry if this is a stupid question but does JH Audio have a store front in Florida where I could audition the headphones I am going to be out there in September.

I'll post my impressions in a thread when I have a chance.

I'm not even going to ask about the Twag cable and RSA Protector. I'm done.

I have an address for you but I don’t know anything about an off-line store.

Until there is a way that I can hear them before buying then there's no chance of me plinking down that kind of money on something that might not like at all. Ten what do you do with em? Sell them for a lot less than you paid?

they may not have a store front per se , but it's certainly possible to stop by their place and audition universal versions of their products. if you like what you hear you can have impressions shot right there and place your order.
