post #2326 of 8278

Speaking of which did JH already resumed shipment? Or is it safe to assume it;s halted due to the cable issue?

You know, it's funny - the Irish swear that international Guinness tastes nothing like true native Irish Guinness.

 

In America, I wouldn't be at all surprised if they lace the Guinness with high-fructose corn syrup or Aspartame! :tongue: 

 

 

 

I hope you're (all) keeping a positive mind about the cable issue on the Roxannes - I'm sure JHA will sort this issue appropriately, in due course.

In the meantime, I hope they sound as good as you hoped.

So JH would be shipping the ongoing orders with the current cables? or will they halt the shipping until the problem is solved?

If so, I gotta make sure I don't over-tighten them.

Only way to know for sure is for someone to email them and ask...

OT: If there is a possibility to drink Belgian Beer, drink it. There is no better one.

NOT due to JH's nut problem.. Not at all. That's is just a minor issue as I see it. But I read elsewhere that JH recomended aftermarket cables. Very honest:beerchug:. Knowing your limits is a good thing. But how come iem makers are not supplying top quality cables with their premium products? It seem that there is no difference in the cable quality accros a product range from any iem maker.

Because almost all ciem cables come from Plastics One, who have enjoyed a stranglehold on the market. This particular cable is from a different manufacturer I believe.

...

 

I posted this three weeks ago... the connector is an afterthought, it needed to be engineered with excellence in mind, its clear from the circular connector choice that it wasnt. I highly doubt that JHA manufactures the connectors, they would however order them from someone who does (staging themselves as middle men for cable manufacturers to control the product so to speak), this was probably the smallest option available to them after some research. personally.. it should be recessed flat/rectangular with a sprung latch..

I think it was said JHA will provide the connectors to aftermarket cable makers. So they'll want to resolve this issue before doing so.

I'm sorry but this is just not acceptable in any case scenario. I don't care if it's a display of honesty or what not. You don't buy a Mercedes expecting to have to replace the tires to be able to drive it. These products do not cost anywhere near $1600 to manufacture. 80% of what you're paying is R&D cost. A problem like this is obviously oversight during R&D, so clearly we're paying for nothing. I'll reserve further judgment for when my pair arrives, whether or not it comes with the new cable, and how quickly JHA resolves the situation for me and everyone else (and that means sending a proper cable that doesn't disintegrate, not just a replacement). If my expectation are not met, you can be assured that I will not be a JHA customer in the future.

True. One could say that the cable is 50% of the product. If not soundwise , then 'visualwise'.

It just seem strange that so little energy are put in to the cable. I had the mercedes compairsion as well.  

Again, JH audios cables are not better or worse than other high (low) quality iem makers.     I guess ?

JH did not recommend after market cables and in fact said this was of better stock than past included cables. They simply stated that they would supply proprietary bits to aftermarket cable makers and not discourage it.
