That is a weird question :) If you like the 13fp better than it outperforms the Roxanne to you.
While I feel focus important, I think import of soundstage width and depth over emphasized in IEMs. There's a certain amount of natural width and depth on some recordings that should present themselves at appropriate times but IEMs that always sound wide or deep likely have phase issues or enhancements depending on point of view. Doesn't make them bad if you like it but don't over emphasize those aspects. If you liked the jh13 better on a short compare, you did. Another listen with bass adjustment and varied sources may give another impression but what you got in those circumstances was valid.
So just got my new cables and they are working just fine. Back to listening to the Roxannes...happy camper here...
Oh, and because I know you will ask, going off memory, the nuts seem the same design wise, maybe a little more thickness, but cant be certain as I do not have the old ones to compare side by side??? But looking at the pictures I took of the old ones it seems that the rim of the new ones is, what I would call, 'formed' better. It seems to me that the old ones did not pack out in the tool properly as compared to the ones I have now...this is what my design engineers eyes is telling me. (yes, I design this kind of stuff for a living I have a background (17 years) in plastic molding, etc.).
Time well tell...
Oh and they replaced my case, also.
For those who own both, how does the Roxanne compare to the LCD-2 in terms of signature and performance?
I am found of the Audeze sound and I am interested in getting a pocket-size version of them - but without giving up (too much) on the sound quality. What I like the most on the LCD-2 are the textured, powerful bass, the inoffensive treble and the wide imaging.
I know someone who owns a K3003, but the only person local I knew who had the SE-846 sold their pair. I would have loved to have been able to compare them all at the same time.
You should have a listen to Etymotic ER4S single balanced armature sometime.
