Tell me about it!

From (limited) experience it doesn't bother me much if I can audition the gears that pick my interest. From there I can draw the line where the value is and decide whether to get it or not.
It is the unknown that always bugs the mind, ike in the case of roxanne. You're always wondering if it's better than what you already got in mind.

If roxanne resembles 16 more than to 13 it's going to be easy, otherwise....

Out of topic but today I happened to demo abyss for abit and man did it rock my small head L3000.gif

If you hate even just a tiny bit of emphasized bass, I'm guessing that you will be fine with the jh13.  I feel like the roxanne is just for those crazy bassheads who still like definition, clarity, and coherence aka not-beats.  Or those who like to listen to a variety of tracks, some that don't benefit from bass boost, and some that do.  Those who like as little bass/flatness as possible probably don't need to apply because they will never touch the tweaker anyway.

 

I guess for me though, the question is this:  Will the roxanne bass be able to surpass the jh16's bass power by tweaking the potentiometer, without sacrificing any qualities?

Buy both, then whichever you don't keep you send to me for free. That's really the only logical solution.

The nice thing about JH Audio's efforts is that they get a lot of press.  We'll probably only have to wait a month or two and the reviews will come spilling out.  I'm hoping all the reviews with JH13 comparisons don't talk about how much better the Roxanne is... if so it'd be hard to resist.

So you're saying you believe these "official" reviews?

I believe in an overwhelming consensus of opinion.  The Jh13pro received a huge number of reviews and most of them were in agreement regarding technical ability and sound signature.  That's why I was willing to spend the money to pick them up.  I'm willing to take some risks but once I hit the $1000+ mark I'd like a clear idea as to what I'm going to get.
