Now what player should I get?
I am primarely thinking about the sony zx1 but I cant find a shop online that sells in europe (I am from Switzerland).
Or maybe X5?
Any suggestions?
I am not ready to pay for ak240...

I have the X5 on preorder and still wait on a better preorder deal on the Calyx to convince me:P
Unfortunately... I ordered CF on Black Friday so it will take some time until I can give any impressions haha... ...No it is not funny :(

I'm holding my zx1 in my hands and keeping my fingers crossed :x


Since you mentioned the ZX1, is it better than an iPod with Twag v2 Elite Micro cable, Oyaide plug and Pico Slim? If it is, I may be next in line to get it.

These Rox's are really, really nice. If you think the vocals are recessed, my guess is becuase its recorded that way in the mix. These are so true and are so true to the mix its sick. Accurate, slamming bass (as much or little as you want), great seperation, they get better and open up every hour too....Im very, very, very satisfied. Also- Im sorry you guys are having problems with JH, I have never had problems with communication with them or expectations. Good luck everyone.

I haven't heard the slim but here's what others have been saying:

Yes. Massively. I've had your rig (Claasic and Slim, not C5). In their day they were very good. ZX-1 is in a different league.

I'm all in, and done. Trying to decide where to just quit and fight for a refund or move to acrylic. This experience has finally taken all the joy and excitement out of this purchase. When people who ordered 3.5 months after I did (and I'm not even Oct) are now discussing their Roxanne's. My boat has finally sunk:mad:

when did you order? CF i take it...

Well there are only a handful of ppl with CF at the moment. One more tomorrow..(That would be me)

Lets put it this way..." You are definitely not alone!"

This is indeed very disappointing for most of us..

Isolation is very good and so far fit seems to be OK, but...I will need to get use to them because they are BIG in the ear. Much bigger than my Westone ! 

 

Very First listening impression is that BASS is already enough at minimum set-up, and I can't imagine going any further than 12 O'clock  ! what do you use for bass set-up ?

 

 

 

Question:  what is the purpose if the "Soft Wraps" that were included in the shipment ??

 

 

 

Congrats. For me the comply wraps the ships with any JH ciem is completely useless. I tried it when I first got my JH16. I just feel awkward and actually decrease isolation since it makes the tip fatter your ear kind of fighting to push the iem out. So if you move your jaw casually It actually pops out a bit and affects isolation.

 

It also leaves a sticky residue when you take in off that requires quite an effort to clean. If you have to use it there must be a problem with the fit and I'd rather send it back for a refit.

 

I threw it right away when I received my Roxanne.

No they haven't until they ship the black cable with aluminum nut. That's why if your order is a CF with a black cable. You are in on a very long wait.

 

The fastest order they can ship is Roxanne acrylic with rounded case and clear cable. Which don't have issues at the moment.

 

btw, that is a really cool design on your faceplate. I got lazy when I ordered on BF and I thought I need not give them any reason for a delay and shipped them the impressions as early as I could hoping they could finish and ship my Roxanne by 3rd week of January just in time for my 3-week trip.

 

Honestly my purchase on BF was partly influenced by JH saying the the turn around was 6 weeks by from the day they receive the impressions.

 

Suffice to say, sh!t happened. Got my Roxanne after my vacation. Really killed the excitement and buying experience for me. Hey, consolation is I really like the sound of Roxanne.

Hang on there mate.
I received a call last night from my dealer (Jaben SG) that my order for Roxanne CF placed on BF weekend will be shipped in a few days, provided I agree to take the clear cable.
Hell yeah! I don't care what cable they come with, as long as I can get my Roxanne
