Grado has the same effect. Many people identify a very wide presentation with a certain veiled feel because of it. Give someone a Sennheiser can who listens to Grado all day long - the comments would be identical.

The spacious soundstage of the Roxanne is directly tied to the number of cross overs and how they are implemented. They are the ONLY IEM (custom or otherwise) I have heard thus far that sound like a full size can in this regard.

I agree, no other iem and ciem I know has the Soundstage as big as Roxanne

 

How about compares to the Tralucent 1plus2, which is supposed to have a huge soundstage?

Well, rox has a lot of strengths but soundstage isn't really one of them imo.

I have to disagree, IMHO compared to other ciem's and iem's I would say the soundstage of the roxanne is a significant strength.

My Leckerton UHA760 does very well with them. The Hugo was nice but the price is not. But since I got the AK120 I don't use an amp. Only used it with the DX50.

I thought the 1p2 ss was huge. Not sure how Rox compare to them interms of ss. But Im not sure how well the mids are on the 1p2 as the treble and bass seem more forward. How are the mids on the Rox?

The first thing which struck me when I tried them on was that amazing soundstage and after few days of listening this feeling is still with me.

 

Update about cable smell: it almost disappeared, I believe the smell was coming from the molds holding the earpieces in the case. I still use the case, but I removed this insert.

The winged lady logo on the earpiece looks great...and they know not to make it too big cause the wings will be clipped.

I have not tried 1p2 though.

Received my pair(cf) after 7months. i'm not impressed by the craftsmanship (air bubbles) but my pair got perfect seals so ill let it go. the roxannes are much more bulkier than the jh13s.

After 7 months, should be perfection. Shame it's not and I certainly wouldn't send it back either if the seal was perfect.

I can only for the customs, but I STRONGLY disagree with this statement. Holy cow....


EDIT: Switching from the JH16FP, JH3A, and the Roxanne....the Roxanne is HUGE compared to the other two. This is with the 901+balanced card.

Just had an hunch, but the 12 drivers. It's purely marketing right?  There isn't a good practical reason why you will have 4 drivers per each freq range right?  I mean you have BA of various sizes.  My NT6 has 6 drivers, and uses several types(sizes) for different frequencies.  If he's fitting 12 in that small space, my guess is he went with the tiny BAs so he can get the high number.    

 

It's still 3-way.

Me too. Its soundstage is one of its best attributes.
