Noble K10 vs JH Roxannes - Page 18

post #256 of 381

Would be more interesting is those other graphs were current models and under the same testing parameters.

Sure, but the house sound is pretty clearly defined by looking at them all.

Here's another of the universal. Just shows how conditions vary the result. You're certainly entitled to your opinion but always best to listen and not draw conclusions from pictures of what are known to be VG products.

Check these of the UM Miricle and Roth LS8 taken under similar conditions as your old version JH13 graph.

These graphs also don't speak to things like group delay or phase shift. There's lots they don't say.

 

 

Don't get me wrong here. I loved the K10 when I heard it as well. I just think folks should strictly stick to listening and reviews, even if reasonably well versed in reading graphs.

I wouldn't even know what half the means... I'll just trust my ears.

I've listened to the JH Roxanne for three days at home (with a universal, naturally). And I definitely noted that comparing graphs between different sources should be taken with a grain of salt, but, I disagree that graphs are meaningless or that there's no possible information that we can draw from them.

 

For example, these graphs, including the one you posted, show very clearly that the treble and mids are not flat. That could be useful to know for a prospective buyer. Maybe it's just what they are looking for, maybe it's not what they are looking for. It's good information.

 

I said earlier:

"Hearing for one's self is the best, of course.

 

Here is a graph for the Roxanne to help understand what we hear and what others may be describing"

 

I think I'll stick to that ;)

Only if you show a graph from a competing product with a graph from the same source and are aware of the test characteristics. I only said inconclusive as to things like confirming 'house sound' or overall goodness from very differing graph sources. I think that was over reaching. Of course, each designer has his own ear but it only goes so far as each design will have limitations, regardless of price. I had no desire to change from my JH13fp for either of the flagships in question and didn't think the Roxanne sounded all that similar or like JH16s or JH5s for that matter. I thought the K10 is more tonally neutral, a little warm and could use a touch more low bass but as good as it gets in terms of response. The Roxanne has better focus/perspective with a bit more black space. Neither fails at the other's attributes. Why both will sell well and while not important to me, the bass tune will help a wider audience.

Yeah, like reading a car test/review of really high end one. Driving one and getting to know it and really use its strength in real life is... Well real and better than any review. Mostly.

Thank you

 

This is almost exactly what I was hearing. recessed mid, huge lower treble peak. extremely rolled off extension.

 

Too much sacrifice for instruments clarity/clearness and soundstage width.

You can compare it (taken with a grain of salt because graphs from different sources don't allow for close comparison) to the jh16 and jh13 graphs posted on head-fi and you can see the family resemblance.

 

 

They also have things like Total Harmonic Distortion (THD) if you check out the link.

 

It's interesting, yes?

Where is the 20khz high extension that Jerry Harvey talking about?

Now where is the graph for K10? :deadhorse:  :biggrin::biggrin::biggrin::biggrin:

Yeah really.  Why so shy Noble?  Do we have to wait until the korean website measure the peaks and valleys? :D I want a graph to look at before I put big money down on customs.

Now that I have to disagree if sample units are available to try. I think the hearing impression is the key than what you see from a chart :-P

 

But... if there's no trial units.... :wink_face:

If the sample units are available, I would try the demo, but I like graph also.  I just feel more assured and it's a quick assessment of the FR if I cannot make it to meets.  For customs I'd like graphs still since demo will not be exactly like customs.

 

For example, UERM are said to be like the demo, but there are customs that are not.

 

I want tuning graphs, and I want it from all custom companies!!!  I want to see it on their website.  I have more trust in the brand if they share their graphs.  I cannot trust reviews here(too much hype here at times and subjective).  I trust the graphs more.

Being a geek I like data and graphs too <grin>. I think it's fair to say take every reviews (not just here) with a pinch of salt (or in that matters, anything you heard) and analyse that yourself.
