Mostly, yes. The vmoda m80 was a surprise for me. Very nice sound ignoring the very small form factor.
The JH3a I spent about 20 minutes with. This was the latest design as posted in the JH3a thread with the email from Jerry. It is still very good. I was worried with the bass possibly being too high, but you can turn the bass amp off and it becomes ruler flat Jerry says and it did seem to do so. With it off there wasn't enough bass for me so turned on and slightly boosted was just right, about +4-5 db Jerry said with my position. JH 16 is tuned to +6db without the JH3a system. I encountered some light sibilance. Imaging was excellent, tonality was spot on and detail is approaching but still not on the level of stats. Certainly better than I've heard from dynamics and plans in most setups. Soundstage was large, not giant, not average. Center focus was very good. Just a hint of fuzz on the center image. This setup is #2 for me for customs. I ordered a pair of UERM which I didn't find bass light at all despite what I expected having read these forums. The highs of the JH3a are on the hot side, but I didn't feel that it would be fatiguing. I heard some light buzz with nothing playing, but I'm really nitpicking because it was barely audible and I couldn't be sure I was actually hearing it.
The best thing imo about the JH3a is its low volume performance. Most headphones sound terrible at very low volume, especially the bass, but this system sounds just as good at very low volume as it does at 75-80db (normal loud listening). I was impressed with this aspect most of all.
Give me a JH3a on a wall outlet and address the light sibilance and I'm sold.
Was it the best rig in the room, even if it were adjusted how I want, no it wasn't. The best rig in the room,imo, was Ray's HE90 A-10 Thunderbolt and Boulder Cd player. Course we're talking $50k vs $1800 and portable vs not. There were a couple other rigs that were better than the JH3a but all of them were stationary and many many times the price.
