Since the balance on the JH16's and all of my other headphones sound fine I know it's the Roxanne's and yes I swapped the cable Left to Right and Right to left to verify.  :)

there's a good chance it might be your ears. I used to experience this when I would wear my earphones for extended periods of time also using the special ear lubricant that came with my IEM.

if you also have a very slight cold that may also hinder your hearing especially the LowS aka the bass.


Just my 2 cents.

I'm on my phone and didn't get to check your reply. So I guess you should ignore what I said.

That's just great. I ordered on CF Rox on BF and my order # is 11942. They had my impressions from a previous order, too. My ETA is mid to late May. This is pathetic.

Hey guys. This should be interesting; I placed my order for a set of Acrylic Roxannes on the 28th of March and JHA's website shows my impressions were received on the 10th of April. Lets start the timer for how long this takes and I'll update you as and when I hear any news on my order progressing forward. Last time I saw anything about these from JHA, they were showing a pair (full CF model) which had finally reached their owner...7 months later!

 

:confused_face(1):

 

Lets hope there aren't still people waiting that long...

March 10th 2014:

"Your order is near completion I will ship with a clear cable but the case should not hold up the order at all.

 
Thanks,
Angie"
 
April 15th 2014: Over a month after my order being near completion...
"Hi Daniel,
Unfortunately your piece is still in the lab and will be a few more weeks in production.
I will keep watching it's progress and let you know when it's shipping out.
 
Thanks,
Angie"

I made sure to say I want them in May, and no exception

 

"I will make sure that happens. I feel so bad. You shouldn't have received that email. They are so awesome and worth the wait!!

 
 
Thanks you!
Angie"

 

 

 

 

Needless to say, communication and organization was and still is beyond poor. I better get these soon.

Well I just had a completely unexpected delivery.

 

CF BF order number 12255.

 

I didn't even really inspect them yet. I just put them straight in my ears. The only thing I noticed so far is I have a clear cable but it has the new aluminium nuts & I ordered the black cable (go figure).

 

I'm listening to them now (half asleep still though). Haven't touched the bass dials yet but as others have stated I'm finding them pretty dark right out of the box. I like dark though :)

 

I'll take some pics when I can get them out my ears...

I'll get some pics up for you later... I am out and about at the moment!

 

Rest assured, they look great, sound great, fit great - in fact, scratch that, they are the best fit I've ever had (which was a worry given the time that the impressions have been sitting at JHA)

A little patience goes a long way...
