How long did you wait for your JH16? It's approaching the 5 week limit now Heir had mentioned. Hopefully they are done real soon.... Getting impatient....

The background of this player is pitch black and the dynamic range is huge! It is easy to unconsciously keep increasing the listening volume and that is dangerous.

 

Had around 200 hours on the player now.

What volume do you generally listen at? Generally I can go up to 30 (probably slightly under it to be ideal and safe) and be comfortable. If I go too much above that I start getting uncomfortable and fatigued.

JH had quoted  a 30-35 business day turnaround before I sent my molds in. That's 6-7 weeks.

 

That being said, it was a little over a month for me.

Well I guess I should just be more patient then lol. I'm just excited to get them :).

 

Really hoping this will be a much better experience than the Custom TF10s.... rolleyes.gif

Great news this might put me over the edge. Do you know if we be able to sync/copy over all the data from iTunes?

 

Did they happen to address gapless playback?

Not spkrs01, but here's my review of the IE800.

 

I have only had about 10 hours on my pair, I cannot posts thoughts, but James' review is very thorough and an excellent read!

 

Otherwise, I can PM you in a couple of week's time.

 

Apologies for off topic!!!

Wow where can I get one?
post #1945 of 8792
Look great for the cover, I would like to get 1 too. I got my 18pro last night and tried with ak100, I don't need to bring up the volume more than 28 but it much more better than se425, more smooth, details, bass are great. I just try for around 4 hours, I expect it will give me impression after 40 hours

I don't need a cover.  I would much rather have custom holster.  Right now, i am using a 5 dollar craftsman cell phone holster that i got from sears.  it fits up to the volume knob, and i can access some of the buttons directly or indirectly by pressing through the fabric of the case.   With the velcro flapped closed, it keeps it secure.  It also provides enough clearance to have my headphones plugged in.   It is good enough right now to keep the dap holstered and secure.  I don't have to worry about it falling out of my pocket if i am distracted.

 

It would be nice to have something that is custom fitted.   If anyone finds something like that, please post it.

I finaly received my RWAK100 bigsmile_face.gif L3000.gif darthsmile.gif

 

Need to listen carefully to it and let-it burn-in a little before I can comment... but boy, this thing is small !  

 

Now I need to built play lists.   QUESTION :  Is it possible to rename the playlists ?  So far it display "playlist 1", "Playlist 2", ....

 

Strange:  Some of the FLACS files display correctly a cover, and some ... don't !

 

I keept you informed

Mine did that on some. Once I reduced their resolution to 320x320 or less, they all showed up.

You can rename the file from a PC, not from the device.

FYI...I've been burning in my rwak100 for 100+hrs at 40-50 on the volume pot with IEMs with some success...in conversation with Vinnie, he recommends making a dummy load jack and running at 70...get some voltage going !
