Try the new Earsonics S-EM6 then..

Didn't also like the 846 that much and prefer the SM64 for me

Why did I find this thread?!!

 

Well thanks guys, I'm gonna be out $1600..

 

*edit*

 

Skimming back.. IEM's really have caught up with headphones. I've owned both. I put more hours through 13's and LCD-2's than most people due to the nature of my work and I gotta say, depending one which one you are more comfortable with, and the lifestyle you live, both are viable options.

 

I will say that an amp to run an IEM 98% to perfection will be much much less with the advent of the latest super-DAPs versus whatever $2000 25+lb amp is popular now.

 

Most audio engineering professionals that I have spoken to will agree as well.

 

I cannot wear IEM's for over six hours a day. I just can't. It doesn't feel as hygienic to me, but for the 2-3 that I spend in IEM's it's very nice. I love the port too so I can maintain the illusion that I'm listening to my professor talk hehe.

 

will you make cables for these? :D

Can't, sourcing will be incredibly difficult. Moon will probably share source with JH, and Toxic may spend boatloads to get it copied. :P

I seem to have read that Jerry Harvey stated he would share his source with anyone who wanted to, for the purpose of making 3rd-party cables.

Verbally (at least in the Fujiya show). The connectors can be obtained from him. I'll check with him tonight.

I'll let the cable broes know. Thanks.

If in your own opinion that the JH13 > HD800. Would you say the new Roxanne > SR-009?

I can't say the JH13 is outright superior to the HD800.. it depends on what gear is used with the HD800... I can say that, IME, the JH13 delivers very nearly the same level of detail, clarity, imaging, etc.. while (obviously) not being able to deliver the soundstage, transparency, and open dynamics of the HD800.

 

Regarding the Roxanne/SR-009 comparison:  I haven't heard either.  We all know cost doesn't necessarily equal quality/performance in this hobby.. but I'm not sure how effective it is to compare a $5K headphone (w/o factoring in the cost of a worthy amp the SR-009 needs.. which would be around another $5K) vs a $1,500 custom IEM.  As full sized headphones have their limits.. so do IEMs.

We also need to realize IEM = balanced armature driver, SR009 = electrostatic, HD800 = dynamic, TH900 = tesla, and Audeze = ortho, and trying to see if something is better than the other is ultimately going to be subjective. So stop asking what's better! :P Give us your preferences in music and sound, and we can suggest you something, but we can't just say something is better than the other because we have no reference point to base the superiority to.

I agree girl G. It's far more complicated . Did you read the article from the link a few pages back. It made cense to me. As with speakers the ones I like are multiple drivers for each range. It sounds less compressed and focused. Although in the article he says he could hear it was multiple Ba ,s .

Re posting since questions are being asked that this article covers.

"He’s also making the connectors available to all the cable builders he said, so everybody can make custom cables for these IEMs."

"The Roxanne will be available for $1,499 custom, $1,299 universal (yes!), and add $200 for a full carbon fiber body."

MOTHERFANTASTIC!
