New JH Audio flagship! "Siren Series Roxanne" - Page 214

post #3196 of 8302
A few comments for your consideration: stvc and his color “issue” may be due more with ordering whitegirl trans, then anything having to do with build. When I ordered, I called JH to get the exact difference between whiteboy and whitgirl trans and opaque. I was told whiteboy is actually the white, while white girl is off white and is a little cloudy and due to lighting and the translucency it will not be pure white. I believe whiteboy opaque should be pure white (at least I hope as that’s what I ordered).
Lastly- does it makes sense that your “place in line” begins when JH receives your impressions, not when you ordered? Is that what happens? For instance, if I ordered on BF and was #5 in line, but my impressions arrived in Apopka yesterday, I’m behind everyone who’s impressions arrived ahead of me. Is that correct as far as you guys know? Im very excited to receive these whenever I do; the JH13 was a life changer for me in terms of listening and I believe the Rox will be even more pleasing to my ears...

Everything! Not just the sound! I want to see if JH can turn out a perfect CF shell!
post #3201 of 8302

Just got them... here are my thoughts (any comparison is to JH16s sans FP):

 

1) They are MUCH more sensitive than JH16s. Had to lower my volume limiter on my iOS devices at least 2 button presses or I would blow out my ear drums.

 

2) They are brighter. High frequency response is top notch. Not that the JH16 was bad, but it had a little too much sibilance (4K-8K) and not enough sparkle (12K+). Roxy is much much better!

 

3) Overblown bass of the JH16 is obviously under control with the pot. They came set at 1pm out of the box which is acceptable, but not ideal IMO. My ideal tuning is 8am (flat, or what JH calls 0db). I hear almost no difference between 8am and 12pm (maybe 0 to +2db). 12-2pm is maybe a range of +2 to +6db and 2pm-4pm is maybe a range of +6 to +15db, at which point it sounds like you have 4 subwoofers. Absolutely ridiculous. IMO, flat is perfect for most modern recordings, and up to 2pm is great for unplugged/acoustic, and older recordings that lack bass. Anything after that is just madness.

 

4) They are HUGEEEEE. Wait, let me add more EEEs. They absolutely dwarf the JH16s, are not flush at all (that's not gonna be good for my earmuffs), and poke a good 4-5mm out of my ear. None the less, they are still way more comfortable than any universal, so who cares.

 

5) The nuts are not busted (lol). However it's too early to tell if this is a fixed cable. I will take them out tomorrow on my commute (-21C) and they will be shoved in my jacket pocket during the day, so if they pass that test then we can say JH "may" have gotten to the bottom of the collar issue. But I'll be more certain after a few weeks of this type of usage.

 

6) I don't care for the case much, but if for whatever reason a person does, then this is not acceptable quality for the type of product being sold. But then again, neither was the cheap otterbox they used to give out. You may not tell from my photos (I really didn't put much emphasis on highlighting the flaws), but basically it looks like stvc's. Same finish issues in the CF. I am guessing these problems will be solved once they learn to work with CF. Again, for me it's not an issue. The case will sit somewhere collecting dust.

 

7) I asked for a 64" cable, but what I got does is definitely not a 64" cable. It's 48". But whatever, I'm sure they can remedy this.

 

 

 

Besides everything I've said, I have no fit issues (that's 2/2 perfect fits with JH for me), and they sound great. Absolutely great. I think I'm done with CIEMs for at least 5 years with these.

 

 

 

And now the boudoir shots. Pardon my lacklustre photography, the sun is going down here in TO, these were taken on the window sill. Lol.
