Nice, pics or it didn't happen...:biggrin: 


 

Oh, and for those that asked, there have been some cancelations of orders (info I received from other customers not JH Audio) and push come to shove you could cancel, even if you have to get mean (i.e. contact your credit car company etc., point is there is recourse for genuine grievances with a product that is not delivered when promised or at all). BUT, I would give them the benefit of the doubt, as they are trying to get a handle on it and I, for one, think it is worth the wait.

I emailed Angie to ask for a change to the clear cables and she said that the new batch of black ones will be available by the time my order ships. So while I'm still waiting, I was thinking maybe I could detract from the waiting by thinking about the DAP to pair with my roxannes. 

 

So far there have been some great comments about the X5 by Mimouille and ZX1 by VisceriousZERO. I'm considering these 2 at the moment. The ZX1 is double the price but its slightly cold (or is it) signature seems to match the slightly warm roxannes better?

 

Can anyone who have heard these DAPS give some commments please? I don't mind paying more for the ZX1 (hey, we already bought the roxannes), but I'm not willing to spend the AK240 kind of money...

The ZX1 is an amazing pairing, it has a slight bass bump though. The X5, is it even out yet?

Thats not young enough.
I've seen high school kids auditioning Roxannes with their parents at headphone festivals. They probably made off with 2 pairs. smily_headphones1.gif

There is a preview tour for the X5 going on and there were 2000 released to the wild in China.  Follow-up releases to the rest of the world will start in March some time.

Oh boy, I'm too lazy. I'll get them in later.

 

I agree with your last statement. I've been testing these with the CLAS-dB/Duet combo for the past two hours while doing hw. Clarity and speed impresses me the most. I actually think they're brighter (with/without the stack) than I remember, which is beyond alright with me. :biggrin:

Fedex just call me my package from JH is here.

 

lolz, sorry I didn't expect it to be so soon, in fact I send them email to request delay till they have the alum nut cable ready.

 

I order during BF, sunday after the actual BF. Non cf version, and I am using old impression from my JH16pro fp.

just got mine:) First impression, I can only say I feel lucky I didn't go with fit ear. It's similar to what I hear from universal except that my own version don't have bass boom issue. I set mine bass to ard 2 oclock. Mid is lush~~~~, not warm. And to my surprise this iem can project stage better, layering, imaging all beat 16. The only thing I not happy is the high, it's not sparkling (easy to solve by changing to silver cable). micro detail is better as well, especially the mid and bass detail. I will leave it played for a few days then start critical listening and compare with JH16.

 

Ah and the nuts, I saw crack line already.

Hi Congrates on your Roxanne.  Yes, just play for couple of days and I'll get better.

Just got them back from the refit.

 

Great isolation, and amazing bass power with super lush mids and smooth highs... I'm loving it.

 

If this is what an iPhone 5s could do, I can't wait to get my hands on AK240 and DHC balanced cables :)

JHA posted on FB that their power is out...its off topic but figured id save someone's life from a heart-attack if they wanted to call and the phone didnt even ring.
