New JH Audio flagship! "Siren Series Roxanne" - Page 320

post #4786 of 8278
Jerry filed the patent while he was still the owner of UE, sold the company... Patent was approved after the sale.
Then he attempted to use that idea in the jh3a design.

Maybe Jerry didn't understand what intellectual property is... smily_headphones1.gif

The Roxanne's have a thick sound, and the treble roll of makes that more noticeable. I was hoping for a JH13 type sound but better. I am huge on treble and could do without bass (which is why I wasn't interested in Noble). Bloated bass turns me off no matter how good the rest of it is. 



 



The one thing that's similar with the Roxanne and my Grado HP-2 is that they take a song or two to start to drift off into their world. they have a darker sounding treble, but overcome that making it worth it. No other phone or IEM I've heard with laid back treble interests me other than these two. 



 



Unfortunately, my right ear doesn't have as good a seal as the left causing me to send them back for a second refit, but I was just starting to get into them again. Its just that they are very musical and addicting even though my preference is the complete opposite. I was really surprised to hear Tupac mention them sounding analytical. I hear the exact opposite. 


 



Just curious which bass setting you set Roxanne for these impressions. I have mine at 9PM full time. To my ears there is a very nice weight across the frequency range from the bass to the treble which doesn't sound dark unless you turn up the bass up. For me, the mids and highs are just right, which makes my JH16 sounds thinner. This gives me the impression that Roxanne doesn't sound like any iem but rather the presentation is similar to a headphone.

TBH honest I will pick up a headphone over an iem all the time. But I don't want to walk around with a headphone on my head.

I set mine at 9pm all the time as well. I agree, its a different presentation. I really like them. Once I finally get the fit right, they will be all that I need.

hi all,
 
i received my roxannes and i just love them, never heard anything like them. I wanted to ask you that as i use them in the gym everyday and i sweat a lot while working out, what about the sweat that might go inside them ? i don't want them getting ruined but i also want to wear them while working out. 
 
is it safe to wear them as sweat will go inside them eventually or is there some thing i can add on the tip to protect the holes ?
 
thank u !

I don't use Roxanne in the gym. That is the duty my JH16 is serving now. Just put them on before you start and don't take them off until you are finished. Don't worry about any sweat getting in. The only chance sweat creeps inside is if you keep taking them on and off while you are working out.

It's a good excuse/reason you can ignore everyone around you in the gym so you don't get too much distraction and finish your sets quickly.

Been doing it for the last 3 weeks. 4 days a week at 60 - 90 minutes per day and I sweat a lot because I do a lot of cardio before and after my sets.

I've been wearing my CIEMs in the gym for around 5-6 years & haven't had any issues (OK one HF driver failed on my UE11s but it was under warranty & I asked them what had caused it & it wasn't from getting wet). 

 

If they don't seal perfectly or you sweat a considerable amount (like me...) then occasionally you may feel a dribble of sweat running inside your ear. I normally take the IEM out, wipe it & my ear & carry on. That's the extent of it really...

of course customs or universals all work fine in the gym.
I wear them all the time, haven't gotten any problems with sweat.

Apparently not all. Almost all universals I tried just won't stay put no matter what type of tips I used. Not to mention you have to change tips more often than normal use.

It's sad that even an iem supposed to be designed for gym use could not withstand my normal activity inside the gym. ( Denon AHW-150)

Ahh, my canals are quite straight so I don't have any problems fitting universals securely for gym/running use.

Just to be clear, from talking to multiple owners of CIEM companies, moisture WILL damage the acoustic filters in CIEMS and, over time, reduce the sound quality. The good news is that you probably won't notice the loss of quality as you'll get used to it over time. Just like the hearing loss most people get from listening loud... :(

 

Keep your CIEMS away from moisture, don't wear them right after you get out of the shower, store them with moisture absorbing materials if you want them to keep sounding great.

But as Kunlun said, it will still sound amazing to CIEM newbies IMO. 

 

 

Okay so the Roxanne will sound amazing to newbies. That's the least we can expect from a TOTL.

Question is: will it sound amazing to people who already own a top-tier CIEM?

 

If i understand correctly, it won't.

Depends on who you talk to. But in the end it really comes down to what YOU hear.
