True and if you slightly offset each side so it would be slightly longer than the original, the pots could 'slot' between one another and still make that triangular shape, just without needed the circumference that three 'deep' pot sets would require if just placed directly back to back.

I got a feeling that they went with the 4 connector so that they will come up with more than one adjustable sets.

I did ask Jerry at last December's Mook Headphone Festival in Singapore of using the 2 pots to adjust the low and the high and he never dismissed the idea but he said it's up to the after-market cable maufacturers to come up with their own design.
But we all know the 2 bass pots are more like a rheostat to turn down the power delivered to the low drivers as without the pots, the bass is at maximum level. With many user reviews so far agreeing that the Roxanne is a bit dark sounding, a pot to adjust the high might only make it sounds darker.
This is my opinion only, and you guys are free to disagree

I agree with you.  But, if you make 3 sets tuneable, you can tune down the mids and bass, and leave the treble, and it won't sound dark anymore.

Didn't Unique Melody have some crazy in-development device at Newport (or maybe somewhere else) that would allow a person to tune the exact FR?

Someone call a moderator, the man's gone off topic.

My guess: The future of customizable settings for Lows mids and hi relies on DSP.
Roxanne was just the beginning. A proof of concept that users enjoy tunable settings for their earpieces.

Next step is embed electronics to make all that control via DSP. So one could in the future fine tune the response via a mobile app for example.

Well after months of wait, they are in my hands, the fit seems perfect, even though they are gigantic. No build issues apparently, but no time to try them as I am at a restaurant.

I think it might be worth giving them a listen now... afterall, when it come to obtaining a JH Audio product, fine whine seems to be a natural fit :etysmile:
