I find this really cheap marketing to blundly say something about an other brand without justifying it...
Isn't the Roxanne manufactured with a full carbon fiber shell? Isn't that the reason for the long lead time?

I think AAW has deleted that comment about JH's CF from their Facebook page.

Maybe what they said wasn't true?

Is it possible that what they're referring to, is that prior to the Roxanne CF, JH Audio did have a carbon fiber design for their faceplates?  I don't have the Roxannes, but the pictures I've seen here appear to show uneven CF patterns that make it look like it was a pain in the a** to wrap into a ciem shell. So if I had to guess, it's probably real CF.

Here is a picture of a clear cable with aluminum collars.

True - there's little specks of silver peaking thru on mine.

 

But one of the plastic nuts began to disintegrate on my 2 month old clear cable, it's nice to know that won't be a concern anymore.

If it's not real CF, then they have done a great job... my CFs certainly have the moving 3d effect that carbon weave has when it is moved under the light. It certainly looks like real CF to me.

I think if it came to light that the CF was printed and not real CF, JH would find themselves on the end of some serious mis-sale of goods enquiries...

They should keep the metal color for the nuts without painting them black for the clear cables:)

 

Ps. anyone an idea how long the CF shelling takes? They told me that they were in production 10 days ago, eager to receive them:)!

I'll be taping off the surrounding area and attempt to remove the paint with a brass wire brush... I'll post pictures of my success (or failure) when I'm done.

Thinking about getting the ultimate IEM (universal) only. Had almost made my mind for Roxanne, but also weighing SE846 with balanced cable and now I heard about Tralucent Ref1s. My music taste is pop, classical, jazz.... Everyday music source is my AK240 DAP. Unfortunately I cannot try any of these IEMs in New Zealand. So I have to make the decisions based on the member fede

I couldnt find any comparison between balanced SE846, Tralucent Ref1 (I know it is not out yet) and Roxannes.

When giving your views please consider I am willing to use AK240's balanced out,
no one seems to reply to my question. Is this the wrong thread to ask this question?

I wouldn't be surprised if they do that down the road.  They probably just got in a bunch of nuts and have been retrofitting existing cables, which is the more reasonable approach.

Is it your understanding that your Roxanne is made from a shell that is carbon fiber and not acrylic?
