Incredible looking. I'm wondering if the all carbon shell is just a one-off statement piece for show only. If not, I bet it's the most expensive option ever available on a ciem, which I'm guessing will add $400+ to the base cost. Also, it looks like JH has adopted the cables from the Sony MDR-EX series
Carbon fiber was quoted as a $200 upgrade. The standard unit at $1599 seems a steal. I'm plenty happy with my 13s but the variable low bass is a great idea. Bass is so dependent on on surroundings and usage that this may be the first truly universal purpose CIEM with a quick adjustment to need. I wonder if these will get the usual holiday deals.
Since I am a carbon fiber junky these instantly gave me a Head-gasm.
I just now have to figure out how to possibly rationalize purchasing these to me and my wife.....
Maybe if I sell a kidney?
First, thanks for the corretions SGS and gv.
Second, sure you may have a small handful of purchaser of the JH13/JH16pro being disgruntled if they follow the latest and greatest and quantity of drivers game, but there's a big difference in price. Until there's been a few reliable reviews, take the number of drivers with a grain of salt.
Congrats to JH Audio for pushing the envelope with yet another first, 12 drivers on each side. It'll be a matter of time before every other ciem manufacture joins the maximum number of drivers bandwagon, just for the sake of having one, IMO.
I'm a recent JH13 FP buyer.. and if I wasn't so damn impressed with the JH13, I probably would be a little disgruntled... but, I'm not. The JH13 FP is amazing. Period.
I'm sure the Roxanne will be impressive.. but I'm not going to be in a rush to get it... cause the JH13 takes a backseat to nothing I've heard (even the HD800).
It's very, very tempting even before reading the reviews. I'm impressed with my JH13s and the idea of dropping another $1600 is a touch painful. Still, if there's enough positive press I might eventually give in.... Sighs. MAYBE!
P.S. As appealing as carbon fibre may be if a CIEM costs top dollar who doesn't want to see those 12 drivers?
