Thanks! I kinda wish I had bigger ear openings for a larger canvas.

And another...


This was my preview when I placed the order. They did a great job of scaling, positioning, and rotating the art I gave them.

Impressive, The more I see pics like this the more I can't wait to get my JH16. I also opted for the titanium bu with the Flying girl logo. Btw is that solid black or transluscent black?

 

This is how mine is suppose to look like.

That will look great. Post pics when you get them.
I chose solid black so it would blend into the swirl better and make the titanium pop. I had a hard time deciding between transparent or solid because I really like seeing the internal components.

I really liked the b&w swirl set I've seen on the jh site and really wanted to work in a design that would create some depth.

Very cool Dannn!!

I have put in about 10-15 hours on my JH16s so far.  The fit is perfect (I think).  I don't experience any pain and discomfort anymore except for the first hour or two trying to get used to them.  As for sound, they are pretty "boomy."  I'm actually not feeling all that great about the sound quality.  The vocals are lacking and detail just isn't there.  I'm comparing the sound signature to my TF10 and those sound amazing.  However, I'm still very optimistic about the JH16's potential once I get 150+ hours in later.  And I'm not putting down the JH16 at all.  I think they're a great sounding CIEMs and really do hope they magically open up with time as other users have stated.  

 

My source is an iBasso DX50.  I have all kinds of music files from CD ripped to uncompressed FLAC to 192/24 files.

 

Guys please tell me everything will be ok? :confused:

 

Btw, here is a pic of the beautiful pair in transparent white and black.

Have you tried other sources other than the Ibasso?

 

I found mine to be kinda warm at the beginning.  Went from nano to x3,  I switched to silver cables and they got better.  Strangely enough, 4 months later my silver iem cables broke so I went back to stock, they're more clear and detailed than when I first tried them on.  Could be burn in.

Yup.  I tried it on my desktop with a Matrix Stage amp and my iPhone 5.  I was surprised to find that it did sound like it had a little more pop than the DX50.  I think you're right about it could be due to burn in.  Sounds like most people posted about the JH16 opening up and vocals become more forward and the lows are controlled.

My jh16s are less than a month but the stock cable around the ear region seems to have started oxidisation. With a very slight tint o green that is hardly visable. Is it just me or they jus oxidise real quick ?

I'm going to be straight honest with you. 200+ hours later with stock cables, the JH16FP out of the DX50 sounds boomy, vocals recessed, with terribly recorded tracks, but open up with good recordings. However, the bass is still pretty strong compared to that of the TH900, 3DD, and TG334. I mentioned earlier that they rip apart bad recordings like no other. Same experience out of the iPhone 5. 

 

With the JH3A, they get SO much better...

No one should ever judge new CIEM's....They must have 100-200 hours on them before you can get a sense of their true sound. Patience....
