I like the Roxanne, I think it really aim for those who need more bass and higher volume as it does these very very well.  It never become shouty or grained when I push the volume up.  Personally I don't use them loud and like more treble presence so for me I'd prefer the JH13fp to the Roxanne. 



ER4S really is a classic performer. I remember (I think it was actually kkcc) who told me:

"Whatever IEM you ever own your ER4S will always return to impress you"

I found that statement quite true and share it with others. Like anything the Ety won't be for everyone though it's stand against the test of "audio years" says it all really.

I tried the AK03 versions and my first impression was not great. They do sound good, but they are huge and stuck out of my ears like TF10s. I wish I had more time with them - sometimes you need to spend days or even a week to get used to the sound of new gear. There's no getting around their size, though.

Roxanne is better, but my IE800 and K3003i are in fact more transparent and more resolved from mids to highs from a HM901 or iphone 5. Roxanne still sounds more realistic though, and that's what counts

Got an Question about the Roxxanse Demos. Had laste week the JH-16 FQ (TF-10 lover. so 90% perfekt for me, but after 6 hours bass is a little bit anouing) and now the Roxanne Demos.

But its not poissible to chance something via cable at the in ear, like on the homepage is declaired.

 

There got some Potis at end of cable.

 

I have to make the knack with something always something broken. Which direction is down / up, and how far can you turn the outside.

I got my refit back...fit is better but not perfect...will give it a few days. Also 901 is not great with it, not because of SQ but because of volum2 control. Will hopefully get my RWAK240 back soon...

Wow, for me, I listen between 2.5-3.0.

What kind of music are you listening too? Skrillex? :-)
