Do you get your JH3A yet? I'm waiting for your review. Love it, Hate it or anything in between. I have been debating for this setup since it first release but there are many thing that derail my decision and put me in the wait and see mode. Also as other member said in this thread, seem like there aren't many owner mention anything about this. Is it because it is not that good so they don't want to talk about it? or It is that good and they won't have time to come here to headfi anymore.
I have never had the opportunity to hear the best that the headphone community has to offer so I can only compare the JH3A versus my previous CIEM setups and going off of reviews I have read on this forum.
It is my opinion that a fully utilized JH3A takes a CIEM as far as a CIEM can go. I feel that one would be splitting hairs, more than they already are by comparing the highest end CIEMs, if they were to compare another top CIEM with the highest end electronics versus the JH3A setup. When deciding to purchase the JH3A versus a top-tier IEM decide whether you love equipment swapping or not. Also, determine if you always craved some sort of bass controlfor your music collection. I find myself playing with the bass management control a lot and it works extremely well.
