New JH Audio flagship! "Siren Series Roxanne" - Page 38

post #556 of 6853
Me too!
Ordered on in carbon...
My first CIEM! I hope so badly that they will fit! And I wont need to get them refitted!
Womdering when we will see the first custom cables!
And when the first will arrive...
Has anyone experience with doing sport with CIEM? Is it a no go?

Your ciem,s will most likely fit fine. You will need to play with installing them in your ears . I say this because this was my first experience . For me you need to pull the front of your ears forward invert and twist the iem. Then pull the edge of you ear back and push in for it to seat properly. Good luck and enjoy them.

Opinions differ, with some claiming that because CIEMs were designed for use by musicians on-stage, they are not damaged by sweaty musicians jumping around on stage, but I personally feel that CIEMs should not be used in sweaty situations (I'm specifically referring to CIEMs that employ balanced armature drivers, rather than those that employ only dynamic drivers). Dynamic drivers are rather more robust / less fragile than balanced armature drivers, and CIEMs that employ only dynamic drivers tend not to use sound tubes at all - just a simple hole at the tip of the CIEM. This simple hole will not be affected much by condensed sweat. For the purposes of my discussion here, a hybrid CIEM (i.e. one which employs a combination of dynamic and balanced armature drivers) would fit into the same category as one using only balanced armature drivers.

 

Sweat can travel up the sound tubes and (potentially) into the balances armature drivers themselves. In the sound tubes, condensed sweat can detrimentally impede the free flow of sound waves from the driver(s) to the ear (as can ear wax). This is why it is wise to regularly use a hearing aid dryer with CIEMs. Obviously, everyone sweats to a certain extent, even when not exercising or jumping around on stage, so balanced armature drivers do have some resilience to sweat, but it's a matter of degree. They are micro-engineered to extremely fine tolerances and I would not expect them to function correctly when regularly exposed to relatively high humidity, as would be the case if a CIEM were to be used regularly for sport / exercise.

 

 

But it's your money and your decision what you do with them.

 

Personally, I'd save the CIEMs for serious listening, and use an ordinary dynamic-driver non-custom IEM for sports use.

I doubt there will be a difference other than esthetics...carbon fiber will still be within an acrylic coating, cannot be only in carbon fiber.

I contacted plussound and they said that they are currently in talks with Jh for special cables...
I am pretty sure that in early 2014 we will see some cables for the roxanne.

From the earlier comments in this thread, it seems even orders as far back as end October, will only see December or January 2014 receipt.

That makes it an 8 week period at least?

Wow. That's happy news for you, stvc. :)

 

When was your order placed?

post #567 of 6853
I ordered october 26.. Hope to get it in december...
But if not i hope to see some awsome reviews about the roxanne so I can get even more excited!

In general I think its impressive how far IEMs have come... To me they clearly improved more than big open headphones recently did. Some even compare high end IEMs with thelikes of HD800...
In addition IEMs are way easier to drive and dont need any active noisecanceling...
Maybe the UF (universal fit) version of the roxanne is the first step of making IEMs more widely known and competitive ...
I also think that relativly speaking the JH audio CIEMs are reasonely priced. They are hand made in Florida! Some other headphones that are in the higher three digits range are produced in asia ...

you know it doesn't mean that something is made in Asia means it's of a lower quality.. Please do not generalise.
post #569 of 6853
I absolutely do know!
And I didnt mean it in a disrespectful way!
I am just saying that mass pruducing in asia is cheaper than producing custom parts for each customer in florida! And in this way the pricetag is reasonable!
Again no disrespect to asia!

This last sentence means literally nothing. JH audio does not have a reputation for outstanding build quality, while the ciem maker you might be refering to, Fitear, beats the crap out of JH in build quality. They are hand made in Japan where the labour cost is at least as high as in the US. If you are refering to UM made in China, their quality is, from what I have seen, at least as good as JH's. So keep the tired stereotypes to yourself, especially when you have no clue what you are talking about.
