Well, the V200 amp and Westone ES5 had an overwhelming consensus of opinion and positive reviews, but were mediocre when I listen to them. Nowadays, I'd rather listen to the few who either review negatively or is ambivalent about it, verify the authenticity of his findings based upon his prior experience and reputation, and then choose.

One person's mediocre is another person's end game.  It all depends on your criterion.  I've found that there are people on Head Fi who write reviews I largely trust.  When those reviews are corroborated multiple times I feel secure in making the financial leap.

 

I'd still enjoy hearing the ES5; I think I'd probably like it.

I still have and love my original version JH13.  Many dynamic headphones have come and gone since then and I think the JH13s are still the best dynamic headphone I've heard.  This includes every flagship except unobtainium like the R10 and slightly less unobtainium K1000.  I haven't heard a properly amped HE-6 either, but I have everything else.

 

I'll probably buy this new flagship.

My wallet and I are holding out until 20 drivers on each side is available which will make anything less obsolete, technically inferior, and less exciting.

so technically you listen to how many drivers you got not how the drivers can make sounds...

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?

That is also how my logic works and so screw roxanne tongue_smile.gif i just made the plunge on the 13! Going with rush order hoping it can arrive before my trip to korea end of this month.

Now, i believe astel and kern is from korea...

By the way if anybody interested in w3000anv there's a pair on for sale section biggrin.gif

Strange, unless the website listing is currently in-transition.

 

They're still linking Jude's vid, on their facebook page:
