Thanks...and if the fit is good, will have to see what I can do about the trebble. Not really a cable believer and besides no one has Roxanne cables.

I did get to listen to this at the SoCal meet: http://iconosquare.com/p/682784221883136125_225341405

 

Unfortunately can't say much about it as I only spent 5 minutes w/ it.  Not really into the value prop of cables much either, but at times I do believe they can create a different presentation, better or for worse (sorta like the difference between tuning UIEMs w/ different ear tips).  The price they're shooting for is ~$400, probably a bit more than I'd like to spend on something like this.

I got to listen then also, I wont comment on the sound, but the ergos were not what I want, they did not have "memory cable" at the earpiece end to wrap around the ear so cable routing around the ear was not good at all.  I did suggest to them to add it in for the released version.  looking at the picture it does not appear they added it, so I will not be considering this cable,

Anway, in case anybody is interested, here are some measurements.  If you think less than 1dB would make a big difference vs other components in the chain, it's your right.  But looking at the high frequency, it's unruly, not sure if it's the equipment used to measure it as it doesn't line up with the rest.  You interpret it as you wish.

Prototype pictured is the same one shown at the meet.

Hum thanks but they are still not selling these cables are they? I will try AK240 first and see if I get more trebble than with 901.

Not a lot you can do to get treble out of the Roxanne's. It's just how Jerry designed the Roxanne's. Have you considered the JH13s?

OK, thanks, it was a nice cable other than the routing issue. :beerchug:

Does the JH 16 pro has more treble than Roxanne? I love a little sparkle in my music,  my benchmark for good treble would be phones like se846 white filter, th900, 1p2 or k3003. What I personally consider dark would be TG334 or lcd3. Anyone care to chime in? Thanks in advanced.

Is there an ETA of when this will be available?

So after waiting about 8 months for my Roxanne, I have to say I'm extremely happy with the sound.

 

However, the carbon fibre case work is shoddy, I opened the package and yelled expletives right away after seeing a butchered case; I was ticked off. This cost quite a few bucks, and being a kid in college makes waiting 8 months with 1700$ in limbo difficult.

 

Besides the crappy case work, the sound was impeccable, and let me tell you I was being strict. Having owned the K3003i, and currently owning the IE800/SE846; I can safely say it's quite a bit better.

 

The roxannes aren't as dark as I was expecting either; they're one of the most natural sounding earphones/headphones I've heard.

 

Anyways, I hope I don't have to pay an arm and a leg to get a replacement case shipped to me. Can anyone tell me if JHA pays for the shipping or am I held responsible to ship it out...ever after a 8 month wait.:mad:

I listenened to the 13/16 demos against my CIEM Roxannes at the SoCal meet, in addition I own TG!334s.  I would say they all give me an impression of being more sparkly than the Roxannes - that said, I'm not so sure that means there is actually more treble content/detail.  For instance, the Roxannes clearly have more extension than 334s beyond 10k.  

 

Tupac and I differ on this point, but my take is the Roxannes were tuned with an emphasis on reducing any stridency in the highs, and coupled with a robust upper bass/lower mids (rather than a bit of a dip), give them a sound that trends toward thick/smooth sound.  Doing volume sweeps I hear them extending strongly to 15k, but there are some interesting peaks/valleys around the 7-8k and 10-11k areas.  Some people will find this to be somewhat dull or veiled.  Others will find this to approach a more headphone-like or organic experience.

 

From what you say here I'd say these probably wouldn't be for you - at the very least, you would not like them much out of the box.
