Nice, not as huge as I was thinking. Looks smaller than the demo I saw. Still amazing how they fit 12 drivers and all the guts in that small space. I guess I will find out as I ordered one with clear acrylic shell.

Agreed. And looking forward to your impressions :)

Oh that's fantastic, looks like I won't even need to trim that plug to be case friendly. Thanks Viscerious! Now tell us about the sound biggrin.gif

No problem, bud :)

 

I'm drawing a few initial impressions here, its definitely a darker sound than the 13s, with the highs just a little bit laid back. Bass is, of course, variant. When I first popped them in they were set to full bass, and I immediately toned it down to around the 10 o'clock area, where there's enough bass and enough detail in the highs (the sound seemed like the highs were pushed back by the bass) that made me enjoy. I do immediately note that they're not as warm as the Kaiser 10s (which are amazing for vocals), but they're more accurate and probably a bit more honest as well. As I noted in my preliminary notes on the Kaiser 10 they're balanced but not neutral. The Roxannes are more in the area of neutral while the balance is probably up to the guy tuning them. I'm going to spend a few more days with them and come back to you guys.

Pretty normal, tuning the bass down and raising the volume will present more of the mids and highs. Just wondering how the high freq response is, the 13/16 feel bright because of a peak from 7 to 10K, does the Roxanne feel less bright but more airy/spacious? That's what I'm hoping from the improved treble extension...

Hope you're having fun! biggrin.gif

You got it.  Were you going to start an impressions thread? or appreciation thread I guess is what it should be.

I unfortunately see a couple things with mine that seem "rushed".

At least one of the ear pieces has finger print marks in the acylic itself.  These do not was off and are under the final "clear coat" layer or what ever is put over the writing/art.

Also on the inside of the case there are several finger prints of dried glue on the bottom of the case.  Likely from glue on the fingers when gluing the clear plastic "negative" holders to the carbon fiber.  Also some shoddy glue work done on this part as well ruining an area of the carbon fiber finish.

 

How do they sound?  Off the bat very dark and muffled.  Using the same source as I did to audition them at Can Jam.  Sound nothing alike.  Assuming they just need some break in.  I remember my JH11Pros sounding terrible when I first got them as well.  Will reserve judement on the sound for several days.
