    New JH Audio flagship! "Siren Series Roxanne"

    I don't know about that. The Roxanne has a bass dial and doesn't sound "the same" depending on the setting of the pot.

    New JH Audio flagship! "Siren Series Roxanne"

    The Roxanne II still has a three way crossover network. The crossovers themselves are known as 4th order crossovers (using a different technology than your standard crossovers).

    Shure 846 vs. JH Roxanne's

    Personally, I don't know how much I could learn about an IEM from an in store audition. I feel like I have a feel for an IEM after that third week of 10 hour per day sessions of going thru many scenarios with different sources, tips, and music. I have not heard the K10. I have no reason to...

    Shure 846 vs. JH Roxanne's

    svk7, I owned the Roxanne II and I listened to it for more than 200 hours. You are right, if you connect the 846 and Roxanne to an iPod or some audiophile player and pressed play, the Roxanne has at least two times the separation. With Viper4Android the separation of both IEMs becomes larger...

    Shure KSE1500 Review - Shure KSE1500 Sound Isolating Electrostatic Earphones

    I was speaking tongue-in-cheek but it's cool if you disagree. It's all relative to cheaper IEMs with a million or so page views. This is actually a popular thread even more so than the Layla impression thread. I think Spook is right about the lack of posts lately being due to no ability to...

    Shure KSE1500 Review - Shure KSE1500 Sound Isolating Electrostatic Earphones

    Hey Spook. I didn't see this. I guess it is true that a thread about a $3000 IEM is not one of your more active threads. If it were really active, I would wonder why so many people have so much money, right?

    Leave it in there for at least a couple of days and let us know if it helped.

    Shure SE846 Impressions Thread

    Sometimes an imbalance in earpiece output is due to moisture. I store my 846 in a container with a moisture eliminator (the kind that sucks the moisture into the bottom of the canister). I buy them at the dollar store. Moisture elimination keeps the IEM sounding crisp as well. Edit to add: It...

    Shure SE846 Impressions Thread

    Android is an operating system. Some "audiophile" players use Android (like Sony ZX1 and 2, Astell&Kern, Cowon, the FiiO X7, likely the upcoming iBasso and so on).

    Shure SE846 Impressions Thread

    Well, I don't have to consider thoughts about the KSE1500. I was an owner. It is quite capable of very good sound. I just didn't have the right source configured the right way. I would prefer a better starting spot than version one. As for EQ, I was with you until I tried Viper4Andriod. All...

    Shure SE846 Impressions Thread

    That didn't answer my question. I asked about the technological advancement that might make it superior. People make all kinds of proclamations about what is better to them. Years ago I use to buy based on proclaims by members here. I learned not to do that. There are two BA makers and they...

    Shure KSE1500 right channel noise

    Because of the uniqueness of this IEM system, there's only one suggestion. Send it back to Shure. It should be still under warranty because it hasn't been on the market for a year yet. It's likely the cable on that one side. Shure is the only place to get it replaced.

    Shure SE846 Impressions Thread

    I haven't tried every possibility with the Mojo, but I don't really have much of a desire to try. The Note 3 with V4A has been doing the job for 3 years. I've had various audiophile DAPs over the years and they don't sound better. I bought the LG Van but returned it because it didn't sound...

    Shure SE846 Impressions Thread

    I've had the 846 for a little over 3 years and I wonder about the "higher mountain" occasionally myself. I don't think it can be found in the next new generic BA IEM that's the flavor of the month. There would have to be something special about the technology involved or else you are just...

    Shure SE846 Impressions Thread

    I tried the volume limiter years ago. I don't think it is the same thing. The only thing I know of (with the standard Apple app) is the EQ setting of "Late Night". It lowers the input sensitivity equally across the spectrum. As for the iPhone 7, there's conflicting info. Some tech reporters...

    Shure SE846 Impressions Thread

    The headphone out of the iPhone 6 and previous models seem to work fine with average headphones, but the 846 needs a lower sensitivity. The iPhone 7 not having a 3.5mm jack is irrelevant. Most people here would likely pair the Apple device with something like a Mojo anyway. In my opinion, its...

    Shure SE846 Impressions Thread

    It seems like this is the thread for that topic. It is also the thread to discuss the micro-kernel Google will use in its upcoming operating system. :P The 846 never sounded good out of any Apple device I have had or heard. The line level signal is too strong without a good method to fine tune...

    Samsung Galaxy Note 4 Sound Quality

    I have both versions of Poweramp on two different Galaxy Note 3s. The sound differences seems minor and favor the official version more than the alpha, but I have not compared them critically. The alpha perhaps has slightly more bass whereas the official version has a little more clarity.

    Shure 535s.... cleaning and ... uh oh.

    That part came off of the cable connector to the earpiece. You can slide it back on. If you don't see one on the other side, you lost it too. You can send the cable back to Shure and they will send you a new one for $16 plus the cost to ship it to them.

    Shure KSE1500 Review - Shure KSE1500 Sound Isolating Electrostatic Earphones

    I have an eleven year old Shure E5c and the permanent cable is still like new as is my 535 and 846. I clean the cable after use so body oils won't degrade it.

    Shure KSE1500 Review - Shure KSE1500 Sound Isolating Electrostatic Earphones

    I don't know what you paid for your 535, but a new KSE1500 (from an authorized dealer) should be at least 6 times the cost of a 535.

    Shure SE846 Impressions Thread

    Never liked Neutron player for sub-bass. For me, the best option for sub-bass is the combination of Poweramp and Viper4Android with the 846.

    What's the bottleneck, source, iems, media or ears?

    You should provide your own answer. You say you had the W40 with you when you heard the sublime sound from the AK120. If you plugged the W40 in and it was still sublime then it was the player or file type. You are the only one with the ears to know for sure.

    You should contact Shure. They don't repair. They send you a replacement earpiece. If you damaged the earpiece (in America) the replacement fee in $270 per earpiece when you send in your damaged earpiece. I don't know about Switzerland. You can check the website. It's not easy to find. It use to...

    Shure KSE1500 Review - Shure KSE1500 Sound Isolating Electrostatic Earphones

    I tried Darin Fong's samples a few months ago and thought it was not there for me yet, but had promise as a potential way of adding back that missing head related info. I wish the head related info could be separated out from specific physical setups and just be a feature in software like V4A...
