Thanks. I may just hold onto my money until either more impressions of the Roxanne are released, or when the Monet gets released.

Oh, and also curious. What would be considered an upgrade from the Ocharaku Kaede? 

 

It's one of my favorites, and I wouldn't be selling it if it wasn't so fragile.

Over the 334...maybe the 335, the bass will be more present but tighter. Otherwise maybe the Vision Ears Stage 4...

I feel like UE is going to release new ciem soon to compete with JH. Just my thoughts though.

What DAPs do you guys use with your ciems? I heard that HM901's iem amp had rather high impedance...

Not sure if 2 ohms for the 901 iem card is high impedance but IMO it sounds great with the JH16.

Straight from iPhone 4s or from my laptop usb -> pico dac/amp.

 

I can't justify wasting the money to get an 'audiophile' DAP that I'll have to carry along with my phone for an improvement in sound quality that I won't even notice because I'm moving around... especially also trading away amazing UI and pocket space.

I carry a backpack everywhere on campus which I will toss aside in a moment's notice and it's already enough for me to carry... might bring around an additional bag in a decade or so when I'm less active, but I doubt I'd be able to improve the quality difference any more than I can now.

I don't carry a bag anymore either, iPhone straight into a good universal or custom iem is good enough to me in my opinion, though this might change when I get my samsung note 3.

I go for stock AK100 and UERM. Just need some EQ.

post #195 of 587

Quick question for you guys, the other day I got my Frogbeats c4 stuck on my pocket and when I took them out the left side cable detached from the earphone, so I just connected it and everything went fine, but lately I noticed that the cable is now very loose and gets detached easily now even is getting some troubles if I move my head too quickly.

 

What do you recommend for that, should I try another cable or look for a resheling on another company since frogbeats is dead now?
