New JH Audio flagship! "Siren Series Roxanne" - Page 265

post #3961 of 8278

Congrats to those that received their Roxanne :)! I envy you guys!

Unfortunately, looking at the pictures... No Carbon Fiber's in this batch :(
@ALRAINBOW  any news on your order?? Haha I am eagerly awaiting your order to come in... As far as I remember, you are next in line for the CF's!

Me and Al are neck and neck... although I'm not sure whether we are closer to the start line or the finishing line!

What is worrying me is that for a while we have seen ZERO CF Roxanne shipped. Are they even producing them or waiting for us to cancel?
post #3965 of 8278
Anyone here pay via Paypal? Wouldn't it be easy to cancel an order if purchased with PayPal?

All this waiting has me spending more money frown.gif
Going to purchase the K10 in a week or so.

I ordered after black Friday, I won't see mine till the end of the year.... Lol

That's an unfair statement - we haven't seen a CF go to a Headfier... we can't comment about other customers who aren't on here. Not all (in fact, quite a small proportion of I would imagine) of JH Audio customers will be on headfi.

I've noticed that the sound balance is slightly higher in my left ear, and the isolation is mediocre to pretty good. But trying the WAV test files gives decent results indicating a good seal? hmmm. So, even when you finally get these shipped, that may only be the beginning of your journey of mailing back and forth for re-fits :p

 

Unfortunately, the sound can't really be found on anything else that I've heard, so the choice is either, settle for something else, or wait for the best. It'll be worth it in the end... or as worth it as anything is in high end audio. I'm hoping the fit is ok and my expectations for isolation may have been too high. I'm used to Etymotic w/Shure Olive tips which block out EVERYTHING. Time will tell. I have under 30 days to figure it out. 

 

Its hard to be patient, but I think you guys are on the homestretch.

The thing that got me is the first time I called to switch to acrylic Corbyn actually talked me out of doing it... they had new ovens on the way, new staff hired, I'd probably regret it, etc.  This was after they hiked the price too.

I would stick it out if you prefer the CF. If you get it a month sooner, its not worth sacrificing getting exactly what you want on something this pricey. Just my opinion. I actually didn't like the CF, so I originally ordered it without. It doesn't look bad, but I usually associate that material with high end cars or aircraft, not balls that stick out of your ear. Plus, I like being able to see the 50 drivers they stuff in there. 

 

Personally, If I wanted the CF, I'd definitely stick it out. I think there will be a wave of shipments before too long given all the new equipment. I assume they made a bunch of cases, and will now put it all towards the CIEMs.

Well I am kind of past fair statements as I find they give is anything but fair treatment...but hey they have conditioned headfiers into accepting such situations as normal...

Never wrote hear anything before.
FYI, I ordered my acrylic roxxanes through audiologist in London on 13 Dec 2013 and today I received:

"Dear Evgeny,

I hope you are well. Apologies that your order has taken so long to arrive – they are finally here and they look very cool!

Do you plan to collect them from the office?

Best wishes"

Indeed... and besides... it is not that we do not see every CF order. That is merely impossible... But, we can see that orders that were placed way before Black Friday are still in the dark. That is, with their current 'non' transparancy, very unfair to the people who ordered CF. If orders that were placed in Oct. are still waiting without any news on their CF Roxanne... just imagine the wait for the people that ordered during BF. I expect, and I could be wrong, that the majority ordered around BF when the sale was up, therefore adding up to a staggering waiting time if they are this slow with the Oct. orders.
