To those who are still waiting patiently for their roxanne:
IT IS DEFINITELY WORTH THE WAIT!!!
If you own a JHA nonfreq like me it is not 1 or 2 step forward it like 4-5 step forward.
I have been listening to my new Roxanne all day at work today.. and thought is was decent..
But when i got home I decided to do some AB test between this and my JH16pro(nonfreq) and LCD-3.
This Roxanne makes the 16pro sound cheap. It make the 16pro sound like a $100 iem.
The difference is so dramatic i give up comparing after 2 songs.
The 16pro sound congested ,harsh and muddy in comparison.
I remember reading another headfi stating that the R sound more like headphones (really good ones) than IEMs.
I am in total agreeance with that.
I would say it sound very similar to the LCD-3 with the LCD having a slight upper hand.
The high are indeed a bit layback ..I feel a bit more spark in the high end would be nice.
Hopefully a silver cable will fix that.
The bass..well some say 2pm is like 16pro..but i feel it more like 1pm. But is hard to compare because sometimes is not quantity but quality. The bass is a bit tighter and more detailed. 2pm is probably the max i will go anything more would be like listening to 2 subwoofer. I
The roxanne pairs very well with my ak240..
