New JH Audio flagship! "Siren Series Roxanne" - Page 70

post #1036 of 8305

To those of you who bought the Roxanne-

 

I haven't tried any custom in-ears before, but these look very interesting to me, except the price is very expensive even with the 20% off.

 

Would you say these (or other custom in-ears) are worth these price tags?  The nicest IEMs I have are my Sony MDR-EX1000, which are great.  How would these, or even the JH16 or JH13 compare to my Sony?  Will I be in audio nirvana? :D

 

I am using a Zana Deux with a Beyer T1 for my home setup.  How would the sound (detail, imaging, etc.) compare?

Like more than a few of you, I ordered on Black Friday. And have heard nothing from JHA, though I expected some sort of email confirmation. Got my ear molds done Monday and am raring to send 'em off to Fla. Do you think JHA is just overwhelmed, or should I bug them via phone? These will be my first CIEMS. Might as well go all out, right?

I would call so you feel better, as no one ever emails me till they are shipped .

They are pretty responsive to emails, also.  IME at least.

I also ordered on Black Friday and got an email confirmation right away. Have you checked your SPAM folder?

I received an email right after purchasing that had my order number on it and instructions on how to get the mold done, etc. I would definitely contact them if you haven't received that email. 

 

I just sent my earmolds off as well. If there is anyone interested in getting them done in the San Francisco bay area, San Jose specifically, give Shauna Raynor - Selective Sounds a call (408) 981-7885. She is great, fast, friendly and has done several JH Audio and Westone molds. She says she does more of those than for molds for hearing aids and has never had anyone complain about needing it redone. In fact, she said she would do it again for free if my fit wasn't right, and she only charges $50. Just wanted to throw that out there. 

 

Now the long ass wait :popcorn: and hoping that these fit right when I get them (first customs). Customs are definitely not for the impulse, need it now buyer like myself.

...'only' ?

 

Wow. I wouldn't dream of spending more than £20 (maybe £25 if in central London) for a set of impressions.

 

That's equivalent to $40 bucks max. (I think I recall another Head-fier getting his done entirely free in Paris! LOL)

 

I guess Californian audiologists like to charge over-the-odds...

 

 

 

I know, I know, $50 is a drop in the ocean compared to the CIEM price, but still. It's the principle :rolleyes:

NYC 90 .00. First time . Next time I bought iem,s there and free.

The prices of EVERYTHING are inflated in California. The going price is around $90 typically from what I found here for impressions.

Price is subjective but after owning a pair of 16pro (pre-freqphase) for 3 years and comparing with all the other non CIEM (including EX1000) that i have it is already at the different level.

Simple example i can give you is

ex-1000= Evo X (Not bad)
16pro = ferrari 458
Roxanne = LaFerrari

so ya different league..

but you need to right equipment to unleash its full potential...

For me it worth every penny..I ordered it in early october at full price (CF optioned) + international shippment + import tax/custom (15%)

I am paying close to $2000 USD.

but it is carbon fiber and hand built and no one in the house can steal and use it..lol

I am not sure if I should thank you or not, but I just un-cancelled my order after reading your post.

 

I hope these are worth it!  My Roxanne will be the CF version too.  Really looking forward to them now.  The EX1000 does not sound half bad, I am playing them out of my Sony F807 Walkman and they are already excellent.  Can't imagine what the Roxanne will be like!
