New JH Audio flagship! "Siren Series Roxanne" - Page 310

post #4636 of 6766

sent mine back yesterday thru Jaben.

 

Left side was hurting even after a week of usage.

 

Only sent the left ciem back.

 

Now let's see how long would this refit take.

Has there been any published measurements for these. Specifically Universal Fit version. ?

ALO has nicer pictures, but both models seem to be carbon fiber:

I like ALO, always had great service/experience from them in the past -- so I would hope there's a reason for the $300 price difference.

I had this conversation with ALO yesterday and they said that $1599 is the new price from JH Audio and the difference is that ALO actually had some in stock and the others did not and will have the same price when they do.

Cancelled my order today. Decided the bass pot might be a bad idea in the long run.

Not saying you should listen to my advise. But a bass pot is something all iem,s stolid have. In your car or home rig bass is the main thing to fuss with. So may I ask why not for you.

Looks like I'm going to have to send the Roxanne's back for another refit. The sound is clearly louder in the left ear. I'm getting a seal in both ears, but the right ear just plops in without a twist. The left is tighter but not uncomfortable. I'm not sure why everything is louder in the left ear. 

 

Two sets of ear impressions, and you'd think they could get this right. I've heard nightmare stories of others trying many refit attempts with JHA and never getting it right. Ultimately, throwing $1K+ away. It looks like that might be the case with me.

If you have even a mild cold or you're coughing, etc, it might be that one of your ears is affected by it. I have this and am well aware of it. Just saying.

The question is it really JHA or your impressions. They have instructions on their site to give to the audiologist. I assume you are using them.

That's sounds messed up. If they follow the same procedures, there is possibility that they won't get it right. Maybe try to ask them to shorten the right ear tips for 1-2 cm?

Yes impressions could be your cause. Mine have been received and they are working on them.
I will post my result when it is returned .

Thanks for the feedback. I'm sorry for the freak out. I just got frustrated for a moment. 

 

Both audiologists that were JHA approved in the area were out of town (in LA), so I went to a lady who has done several impressions for Westone and UE. She said that I was the first one that needed second impressions. 

 

Worst case, I can get impressions from a JHA approved audiologists now that they are in town. My allergies have been going crazy, so maybe that's it. The right side, doesn't seal out the sound nearly as much as the left, so maybe making it a bit thicker might do the trick, and the balance is shifted to the left, so I'm assuming a better seal might even things out. 

 

Going to call them tomorrow.

I tried to switch to acrylic 2+ weeks ago or cancel. They said my CF order had gone into production.....I'm still waiting frown.gif

At this point I wish I had been a little quicker to cancel.

Can you elaborate more why you think so? That is actually one of the selling point of getting a Roxanne.

Yes it's ok to explain it's your money not ours. And you have every right to do as you wish, as this thread is fueling frustration for all,of us.

I just want to know why for bass control is all. And if that is not it , all is fine anyway.
