During the third day of my time with the JH13s, I was happy and satisfied going back to the same dealer (Jaben Singapore) interested in getting the Silver Dragon V1 for the JH13s.

I was about to take off the stock cable before I finally noticed a crack near the sockets on my Right Acrylic Shell and a good deal of air has already seeped in from the crack.

On the spot, the Jaben staff advised that I should sent it back for repair since its within a week and totally counts as a manufacturing defect, the estimation from the Jaben staff was a month-

-and here I am still counting, hopefully it will be back before the second month of departure.

=(
If I may chime in here, perhaps one of the factors for the increased waiting time for re-fits is due to Jaben's shipping procedure. If I'm not mistaken, Jaben tends to do `bulk' shipping to reduce shipping costs; so, they may have waited for a week or two to compile any refit(s) and new order(s) (ear impressions etc.) before shipping them to JHAudio.

OMG I was expecting 1 month or less but yours definitely makes me considering to send it back now after submitting the form.

If you're dealing with them directly, I believe that should be fine.

If I may chime in here, perhaps one of the factors for the increased waiting time for re-fits is due to Jaben's shipping procedure. If I'm not mistaken, Jaben tends to do `bulk' shipping to reduce shipping costs; so, they may have waited for a week or two to compile any refit(s) and new order(s) (ear impressions etc.) before shipping them to JHAudio.

Most probably, Jaben does has a "famous" track record for their defective handling.

I don't mind waiting just a little more as long as the defects get rectified nicely without any recurrences in the near future. =)

Has anyone received a new JH13 recently? I'm wondering about how long you waited. I have an outstanding order (number 163xx), for which JH should have received impressions on or around July 25th. I was quoted a wait time of 35-40 business days, which places delivery into mid-September.

Yes, the time needed is about 5 weeks, my seria is 19311.

  My JH13s are up for grabs if anyone is looking for a cheaper way to get their hands on these babies :)
Do you mind sharing the reason for selling?

I've heard the FP version is actually lighter on bass from people who believe in sound changes with the FP version, and that they are the exact same drivers from a different batch number from those who don't.

  So the fp version.

FP is created by the sound tubes rather than anything to do with drivers AFAIK.

I've been tempted to sell my JH13 FP every now and then but whenever I put them on I quickly change my mind. I can never pull the trigger on these.

Pick up another set of cables. I ordered the noble cable today which is an improved Magnus, and the price $40 shipped in the US. I can't wait until it arrives.

Have you a link for this cable?
