I also think that the 846s are slightly better than the JH13s.

Haha! That's all I'll say :)

Steve has the JH13fp. He is very clear that the JH13fp has a U-shape tuning. He was very impressed by the 846. He also said that, from his brief time with them, the Roxanne had a different tuning than the JH13fp and JH16fp, which may be matching up with Anakchan's mention of the Roxanne having a mid-bass/lower mid emphasis. I'll certainly look forward to hearing the Roxanne soon.

Yeah, I was hoping that Steve would have a review of the 846 up somewhere, but I haven't come across one yet.

No disrespect to mr G. But I do not merit much he says at all. Nice man but I just cannot rap my head around his views .

Should be out soon, I imagine.

Oh, and I found the Steve Guttenberg Shure se846 review. http://www.head-fi.org/t/675219/shure-se846-appreciation-thread/570#post_10120772

Which I'm posting a link to the Shure 846 thread because it was asked about on this thread.

Steve has those UERM and 1964 V6 etc. He said this about the 13fp:

 

"The Freqphase delivers uber resolution/clarity, but it's still pretty easy to listen to with less than wonderful recordings. The UERM is a close contender, but the Freqphase exceeds it in terms of transparency, richer mids, and it's more fun to listen to. When I'm not reviewing an in-ear headphone the JH13 Freqphase is one of my everyday, go-to headphones. With this one the more you listen, the more you hear."

 

If he prefers the Shure, that's great but this description doesn't sound all that U shaped to me. I suspect he prefers a less apparent high end and more emphasized bottom which is cool. He was an original JH16 fan in the day and personally, I could never live with that much bass emphasis. I think your anti JH bias may be showing a bit. It's odd because one guy will say the 13 lacks warmth and the next like Currawong thinks they're too warm. Goes to show that these aren't absolutes. I need to hear the 846. Whenever I read about 'highly open' in an in-ear, I wonder a bit about phase. Not every recording is open sounding.

Whoa, no need for personal attacks. Steve Guttenberg literally said the words "U-shaped" and made a U with his hands while talking to me, in person, about the JH13fp. This was at the last NY Audio meet. We ended up talking about different earphones at a couple of different times during the meet.

 

I never said they were bad or that U-shaped sounds are bad, that's all your implication, not mine. I spent two hours with the jh13fp and jh16fp demos and enjoyed them. There was no need to say I was biased simply for quoting someone accurately. I would appreciate an apology.

 

Let's get back to the Roxanne, which, as I said before, I am looking forward to hearing.

- Indeed, enough with random anecdotes that are unrelated to the topic.

- JH3A? JH13? Aren't there separate threads for those?

Completely agreed.
