I've never been all that interested in bass tuning contraptions in phones (IEMs or full sized).. but definitely in agreement about other tech trickling down to future universal offerings.. that's something that actually interests me more than 'another' flagship.

 

..but as I say that.. what me give in to the hype and pre-order the Roxanne... LMAO.  That's how this kind of thing always ends.. *sigh*

We may be waiting quite a while for a UIEM from JH Audio. I cannot image that when Logitech bought UE they did not have some kind of covenant not to compete in the purchase agreement which would preclude Jerry Harvey from manufacturing UIEMs. In every deal I have done as a mergers and acquisitions attorney when you purchase the type of business like Ultimate Ears you bake in a covenant not to compete. The only reason I think JH Audio exists at all is that UE was based in California and California law seriously disfavors lifetime covenants not to compete.

At Canlanta, I believe it was Jamie, confirmed they're working on some universals but she didn't give me any time tables.

I am kind of disappointed that they need to put 12 drivers to upgrade...plenty of manufacturers are able to make incredible sound with 3 to 6...UE, UM, Fitear, Spiral Ear, Vision Ears, etc...
Going overboard with 12 drivers just seems like they are taking the audiophiles for idiots who just want MOAR DRIVAZ.

12 per side seems quite ridiculous. I remember when the jh13 came out and 6 was ridiculous.

I don't think it's necessarily ridiculous.  Everything comes down to implementation.  Certainly it seems like a lot now, but I remember back when people told me 2GB of memory was huge and why would I need more?  Driver technology, crossovers etc... they're all advancing.  This could mean that tuning 12 drivers to maximum sonic advantage is now viable.  I wouldn't pass judgement until we hear the end results.

I believe that I gave them the idea actually haha.  I emailed them a while back asking to have the bass drivers separate, or at least on a separate channel so I can boost it separately.  I believe thats what the 2 extra pins are for:  4 bass drivers electrically separated from the rest of the mid/highs.

 

If I get it, I'm definitely going to modify the cable so I can hook up a separate amp to the bass drivers.

Acrylic doesn't cause allergic reactions. I was wondering how carbon fiber reacts to the body...

I very badly want to get these to compare to my nt6 pros...but then there is that newly announced LCD-X too. All this sweet gear being announced at the same time. Need more money... tongue_smile.gif

Ever see the incredible Hulk or any of the X-men?  I'd be careful.

 

On a more serious note it looks as if the carbon fibre is coated with a clear material (acrylic).  This is a guess from the pictures.

I think Jerry realized the JH-3A was a bust and came up with a more practical, attractive and functional option.  The JH-3A had way too many bugs.   The JH-3A really left a bad experience that makes me hesitate ever buying another JH product.

12 drivers is old news.. But 12 drivers in a two way crossover design.. interesting!
post #29 of 6417
I don't get why it's I'd a two way crossover though when there's 12 drivers to play with the whole frequency range...... Is it cos of the new variable bass technology?

Three quadruple drivers (four in each unit) , gives two crossovers between quadruple driver 1 and 2 and between the 2nd and 3 driver. Maybe not to forget if there's some kind of crossover circuit in each "four-driver" but apparently not.
