New JH Audio flagship! "Siren Series Roxanne" - Page 212

post #3166 of 8306
I didn't ask if the numbers were only the CF or if they were based on just Roxanne's. I believe it is the preorder line for the CF's but as discussed earlier in this thread, all Roxanne's come with the CF case, so the line could be everyone. None the less, while I would love to get them now, I would rather get them right. I know Jerry and his team will be moving and grooving shortly with the new ovens this next week. That should shorten up the time frame considerable.

There have been posts from Double Helix and Moon so far for after market cable.

your most likely listening too loud.
roxanne has very low impedance.

Tinnitus can be from a huge range of cause. Could be that the IEM extends too far into your ear and ending very close to your drum, to loud, cerumen impaction, recent flu/cold with fluid in the inner ear. This is few possibles, there is a list of about 40 things on Wikipedia.

Thank you, Have had Peter's cables before, they are of the highest quality, been meaning to go back there one day for some more offerings as it has been a while, he done me a great custom cable for my AKG702's back in the day, he has an eye for detail and the patient of a saint.  

 

Could be a Roxanne-Helix chemistry....

Ted Allen does all my cables. Find him . He is cheap and does a great job. He is headphonelounge.

Great guy and quick replies and service

or you could simply introduce an attenuator for the treble and an attenuator for the midrange, thus reducing their quantity relative to the bass, with the subjective result of 'increasing' the bass quantity within the sound signature.

Carbon fiber is more durable than acrylic and for cosmetic reasons looks cool. Not worth 200 dollars extra imo. Just look at the k10's the carbon fiber option is not an extra 200 bucks.

Hold on, though, that's a very unfair comparison - a CF faceplate is not the same as a full CF shell and CF case.

 

I'm not being 'pro' or 'anti' carbon fibre, here, just pointing out that the comparison isn't a level playing field.

Not real sure I would agree with the durability advantage either...I look at it as mostly a cosmetic/aesthetic appeal. Which I did not go for BTW.  Oh, and the CF option is what $400 or $500 now. Don't remember exactly but there was some mention earlier in the thread that the CF charge went up...
