JH Audio Sirens Series Roxanne Impressions Thread - Page 13

post #181 of 732

Hi.

 

I had my Roxanne for almost 2 weeks, I think it's good time talk my impression on Roxanne so far.

first off, my set up is Ipod160 - Theorm720 - Kojo brass - Roxanne

 

 

top:  after 2 weeks of burning Roxanne, the top has more sparkle and clean. 

mids:  well balance, clean and netural sounding mids.

bass: (2'o clock bass setting)  good impact and clean

separation:  very good instrument separations, accurate placement of the instrument as well

soundstage: to my ears, wider than my jh16, it has depth.

 

thanks y'all.

when you say clean and neatral sounding mids, what do you mean. Are you talking about vocals or what.

yes, vocals, and other instruments.

Considering I listen to classical music and want to hear the detail and nuances of the singers and orchestra. Do you think the JH-Roxiannes sound better and give you more detail and nuances in the high and mid range then the JH-13, Sennheiser HD-800's or what your opinion

I have both the HD800 :Dand the Roxane. The Roxanne is very good but not better than the HD800 in any way except for portability and isolation.

I believe the Roxanne is the HD800 for using when out and about. redface.gif

I never had the 846.

I just got my Roxanne's and I own SE846.

 

Sound quality wise they both sound wonderful.

Plenty of bass on both models, but Shure bass is a little clearer.

Treble is good and sparkly on both models.

I like the mids better on Shure, though. They sound more lush.

Soundstage and instrument separation is about the same. 

 

Shure is very comfortable but stick out of the ear a little.

Roxanne's are obviously much bigger, but very comfortable nevertheless. And they don't stick out of the ear. They just go deeper in.

 

Build quality is very good on both models.

I love the Roxanne's cable connectors (the only problem is the collars, one of the is already broken). But it will be fixed by JHA vey soon.

I hate the Shure connectors and how the easily rotate. I got the aftermarket cable and sometimes the sound is cutting off because of that. 

 

I am using Sony ZX1 loaded with ALAC and WAV files as the source DAP.

 

I love them both and I'll keep them both for sure.

^ Sounds like you actually prefer the 846 sonically?

post #190 of 732

Maybe a little bit. But comfort wise Roxanne's win.

post #191 of 732

Wow.  Not to take one person's opinion as gospel, but it looks like Shure has done it again.  I remember being upset when my $1000 custom UE10s were getting clowned by the $500 universal Shure E500s in 2006.  When Shure comes out with something new, they always change the game.

Just remember, I have Roxanne's for couple of hours. Maybe in a week they will sound better when Shure. I remember, when I bought 846s, I didn't like it right away.

^^ Very true. When I first listened to mine earlier this week, I thought it was totally overrated..the mids were too much and even slightly veiled at times.

Now after a couple days of listening I think my brain has adjusted accordingly and now it is sounding great.
