So it seems you can get adjustable bass also on other JH models, here on JH13. Anyone contacted JH Audio and have more info on this?

I posted something similar a few pages back. From what the replies say, JH is moving towards tuneable bass for all its models.

Not a cool move for those with existing expensive cables... would be a bit of a shock with a set of IEMs turning up with a different connector!

Not a cool move when replacement cables aren't readily available from JH themselves...

Not a cool move for those that don't want the bulky cable...

Not a cool move for those that don't want the tuneable bass...

 

Interesting that this seems to have happened without any notification on the website?

I have over 50 IEMs and about a dozen after-market cables and I have never encountered anything like the Roxanne cables. The smell even rubs off on the foam in the metal case. At least the smell can be washed out of the foam liner, but I am at a loss what to do about the cables themselves. I can just barely stand to use the Roxannes. I'm hoping that someone will eventually release a third-party cable made with normal materials. 

 

Apparently, whatever the smell is, not everyone is sensitive to it. For those that are, it is horrible.

Mine has zero smell - and everybody who has seen them hasn't mentioned a smell (maybe they are being polite! :p)

Latest email from Angie after i asked her for a status update. Ordered during BF through Jaben SG.

 

Your order is currently in the carbon fiber lab. It should be over there another week and then onto the components lab for those to be added and the finishing touches plus the case to be made.

It shouldn't be much longer a few weeks.

 

Hopefull it gets shipped out by the end of this month.

Well... Mine did have a funny smell at first- it wasn't distracting at all, that was one week ago, no smell anymore:)

My clear cable does not smell. Only problem is it's turning green.

Just wanna share my experience with my cf Roxanne. I received the roxanne on mid may. I ordered them via local Jaben and get my ear impression done on 30 October last year. So the wait is about 7 months.
Yes this is the longest waiting game i have done. Before it took me about 4 months to get my amp and 2 month to get the interconnect. So yeah I am getting used to wait. They are killing me but once you get it, they are actually worth it, I guess I just appreciate for all their work and time to get each of their item produce. They sounding may not be your cup of tea but it is their passion that you hear.

 

First time I listen to Roxanne, oh no.. they just sound like my 215se, they kinda emphasize in bass. But of course with much better sound quality and separation, like my earsonic sm64 v2. Vocal and treble is not as present and airy as my grado, It is kinda dark at first really. So first impression they are not bad, i kinda understand the sirens naming on this. They really does sound like sirens on the pirates movies that can lure people to the sound, It is not really engaging but it is so beautiful so that you hardly take them off your ear.

 

After more hours burned in, the sound just keeps getting better. vocal more present, Bass getting tighter (i set them at 12), cymbal sounds crisp and details, electric guitar sound real, trumpet also sound real. But what i really like is the bass. They are really filling up all head with all the detail and vibration. 

So final word I am really happy with my roxanne, I am thinking to get a new cable from dhc once Peter get the connector. Yes they smell kinda odd, but I am getting used to it after a while.

So guys you may or may not give them more time to finish their job. But for sure jh does beautiful things on the Roxanne,

 

Cheers!

will that be an increase in the 13's or 16's prices? i guess those of us who own the jh16 fp will not be able to 'upgrade' to this bass tune for a fee?

Congratulations. Like me, the wait was frustrating but once I listen.. The instrument separation and the sound stage are to die for.
