I went 5 then 11 and now 16
Don't see myself upgrading for a long time
Wow the 11 wasn't enough? Lol Yeah I plan around Black Friday to either go Roxanne or Angie. What were the obvious differences as you want up to the higher and models?

I have the Angies and they just basically have more of everything compared to the JH-5s: more bass, soundstage, depth, etc. But then, I don't think they're three times better; they're three times more in price though.
Thanks mate that's exactly what I expected and I'm curious.. And when I get curious my wallets the one to pay for it hahah! I have previously wondered why some Headfiers have like seven pairs of headphones but now I understand!!
How is the Angies Mid and High range compared to the Jh5s?
No Black Friday deals last year so I wouldn't hold my breath. Angie is where I'd look. Unless you have a different flavor preference, it's (sonics are) qualitatively on par with anything.
Ok thanks regardless if there's a sale or not I plan to upgrade soon. Do you know any good amps to pair with these items?
I don't have the 11s anymore so i can't give any comparisons that are not just memories but the 16 really is like an entirely upgraded 11. I listened to the 13/16/Roxannes at a meet a few years ago and enjoyed the 16s the most. Guess i like that slightly boosted bass.
The JH5s still remain my hands down favorite and most bang for the buck audio purchase though
That's good to hear I might just settle for the Jh16 but we will see. Now I'm looking for amps/dacs.
You don't settle for JH16's - lol
If they hit your sweet spot - they are keepers
I know right if i just settle for them then I might upgrade again!! I love this hobby... Or rather this way of life!!
Make sure you listen before purchase. 16s have LOTS of bass.
It's a little subjective. The Angie's soundstage and depth really pulls me in and it was difficult to compare the mids and highs directly (I probably didn't have the right music). I wanted to do a 5-minute A/B test between my JH-5s and the Angies...I ended up spending 20-minutes listening to the Angies because it just pulled me into the music. The 5s don't quite do that for me. I keep the 5s because when I'm working out or mobile, I'm uncomfortable putting $1,500 of gear in my ears walking around...lol..
But you came to put the best cables in JH5 or heard with cables stock? After I bought the Audio Effect Ares cables the JH5 was significantly more musical.
how would the jh5 compare to the bigger and badder layla and angie?
i've been on the lookout for CIEMs for quite some time now.
