With the carbon fiber box. Maybe I listen wrongly.

just for your information while chatting with JH
the cables are kevlar insulated cables....and specially for the roxanne its a copper silver mix! he said he is excited to hear them with pure silver when 3rd party starts making em!! as for me....i think im sticking with piccolino this time round again
I am usually the unluckiest person on the world when it comes to fit and seal of universal iems, so if it amazes me despite the universal construct, I might bite the bullet and go for ciem version. However since I already have SE5way, I am in no rush and willing to upgrade my source instead of getting another high end monitor.
Yeah the sound signature seems to be a different from the early impressions I read about Roxanne but I doubt that Roxanne can reach the resolution level of SE5way. Still it doesn't mean it will be a bad monitor. Since I don't have tons of money, I rather to first upgrade my source then look for a second ciem. At the time that I am ready to buy, I am sure the hype will go down and we will have plenty of deep reviews about them rather than "wow I am so excited they are the next best thing since sliced bread".
There is a big chance that they will amaze me and I know several friends/headfiers who I can trust their reviews and opinions. I will wait to read what these nice people would say about them.
Yeah getting the ciem is problematic, I agree. My ear and ear canal size was just on the border, I would say he could hardly fit all those crazy tubes, drivers and impossible cable work. However the result is beyond this world. If Grzegorz decided not to start the project for your ears, he probably believed that the result wouldn't be as good as he expects from SE5way reference.
Soundwise, they are pretty neutral and balanced to my ears. I wouldn't call them dark but probably they are darker than JH13FP since JH13FP is considered to be quite bright. Their transparency and resolution is unique, they bring details in a very organic way and the sound becomes so rich and clear.
