    Hyperlink for second picture under "closer examination" is missing a letter.

    Nice review. You should take a look at the ACS T1 custom in ears. Again around the $1000 mark. Only 3 drivers but a very nice sound. Seems very balanced but is very capable of BASS!

    I got a set for demoing to clients ;) and am mighty impressed with them while playing BC2...

    agreed only benefit over full size is portability but you'd be mad to walk around with $1000 headphones and not expect them to get lost or stolen

    Go to Head-fi.org. Also, there are a lot of people working in the music industry who would appreciate them. For me, the cut off mark is about £50, any more and I think the money will not be well spent.

    I do not get it - why so expensive??
    It is almost like getting a pair of Piano Diacera, looks good, sounds good - but the price..

    Don't know about the JH13s but see the performance section for comparison to JH16s.
