New JH Audio flagship! "Siren Series Roxanne" - Page 409

post #6121 of 6907

Hi

 

I was thinking of either getting this, the AKR03 or the Westone W60. I was wondering for the Roxanne, how good does it sound on an iPhone, obviously the iPhone will not drive it to the best quality, but just wondering if anyone has use this for an iPhone and used a portable amp or anything (Sorry I am a noob when it comes it headphones)

 

Thanks.

The AKR03 sounded very nice with the AK240 in my really brief 20 min testing at the shop. This was surprising 'cos when I had the normal Rox universal demo last year, I didn't really enjoy it that much. However I have to say the AKR03 is -really- huge. They pop up 2nd hand in Yahoo Auctions every now and then and I was tempted to bid for it but at the end if they don't fit my ears well, it made little sense to pick one up.

 

At the same time I'm still not fully sold on the Rox myself as such not made the attempt to have a pair of customs made with full balanced AK240 cable option yet. I'll try to get more time with the Rox/AKR03 when I'm free to be sure it's not just a passing passion.

Ah. That's cool. Wait the Roxanne and AKR03 are the same size right? Because I had a chance to demo AKR03, and I understand what you mean, it's really huge. I am not sure about the AKR03 if I'm only use an iPhone but eventually I'm thinking of getting one of the AK players.

Maybe I should wind my neck in as I haven't heard the Rox. Do a search and you will know roughly as much as I do. FWIW I have heard the 16 and own the 13.

Hey guys, I'm not really in the market yet (but getting there after reading some of the posts here over the last few weeks). I have a pair of Shure SE-535s and have had them for a few years and generally like them. I'm really interested in learning more about the Roxanne and how to try them. I do need to hear the **wow** before committing that kind of money. When I called JH Audio, they advised the nearest place to try them is in New York (I'm just outside of Washington DC). Any thoughts on how to try them out?  BTW, I'll pair them with the DX-90 DAP.

^ You could see if this person is willing to ship to the international. If you don't like them just resell.

Of course with the stressed production line and long wait now I'm not sure if ordering anything with JH is a good idea.

 

While I haven't heard the JH16. My preference is for the JH13fp over the Roxanne's also. I like a more neutral sound. Unfortunately, I ordered the Roxanne's before any impressions were out. I was hoping for a better JH13/16, but that's not the case. They are just different. I still like them and they have a few unique qualities that better the JH13fp, but they are just not my ideal.

For some reason my roxanne sounding much better and preferrable after one month of listening.

I dont think brain burn in is not the case because before when I switch from roxanne to SE846, I immediately enjoyed the sound of SE846. Today, I switched between them, I actually preferred the roxanne for some reason.

I still thinking if I should sell my roxanne and get JH13 or not, as someone has already point it out with the roxanne you get universal whereas the JH13 is like a gamble. frown.gif

In terms of the instrumental seperation and wide sound stage nature of the roxanne, do other JH products carry the same characteristics?

In these aspects, nothing is like Roxanne.

I heard all 3 as demos. The JH13 is excellent but the demo is slightly light on the bass. With custom molds it should warm up the low end a pinch and be awesome. The JH16 custom fitted would likely be a little heavy in the bass for myself, but as a universal demo, it was the best sounding of the three(JH should come out with a JH16 universal) the Roxanne universal for all practical purposes is unwearable to me. And it's presentation is not focused. Seemed like instrument separation was SO good it lacked a unified whole. More like listening to 4 great solos, but not a 4 piece band. Odd.

For Roxanne, I feel the best way is to go custom. However you do have a point in terms of instruments separation. Each instrument is so distinct it seems odd. Give it another half an hour of listening and once your mind has gotten used to it, it sounds like the best ciem in the world.

When I switched from listening to Fitear MH334, the custom Roxanne initially sounds harsh, disjointed and unruly. Nothing another fifteen minutes of listening won't fix. (likewise when you switch from Roxanne to MH334, the Fitear initially sounds dull, flat with the Soundstage collapsing, the Fitear will sounds like the best ciem in th world with silky smooth, Balanced and unbeatable clarity in half an hour of listening).

It's weird how our minds perceive the sound signature after gotten used to it.

When I look at fine art, I will move in close to focus on the detail (not with a microscope or magnifying glass) but where I appreciate it most, is several feet back in order to admire how the different pieces make up the whole picture. If it looks uninspiring from a natural distance, I don't how care how "good" the details are. Hope that helps.
