Have you owned any other IEM's besides 1964... like these JH's? I'm thinking of buying a pair of 1964's and I need to know from someone who has used a pair of JH audio IEMs also, or even Ultimate ears or westone.

In the JH13 Pro there are separate units for the tweeter, midrange and bass just as you would find in a normal loudspeaker. Cable Suppliers

Took me a while to find this article again. 

 I'm definitely buying this once I go in for my three-year ear mold replacement. I use hearing aids pretty much all my life, so this would be absolutely friggin' perfect. I've been looking for something like this for a long, long, LONG time.

It's good to see a company finally go after a market that uses ear molds so heavily, like me.

I also bet I can get the ear molds sent to them with little to no cost. >_>; So it'd then be the monitors that I'd be paying for.

 Totally bookmarking.

If they are really as good as you say they are, then I might have to start saving up. My dream theater cd's would sound fucking amazing out of these

...that these headphones are very danceable.  Am I right?

 If I had $1100 I would invest is a pair of MK Audio speakers, or a complete 7.1 of something nice.  Not ear buds.

Is the wire at least braided?

Yes, the cable(s) are braided and available with either black or clear sheathing.

The real price tag comes from the special fitting. The girl coming to your place to get the exact fitting would more the likely cost the most. If there was only a way for them to make something like this but it would automaticaly fit to your ear drum then the price should drop.

Dropped $500 on a pair if ice skates that molded to your feet. Wonder if they could use the same material. only problem i can see is it never gets hard like plastic but stays rigid till it reaches a higher temp. Had to use a heat gun to warm them up first. not uncomfy for feet but the inner ear might be an issue lol. Might have a possability though

The cost of the custom fitting is not included in the price of the monitors, and having the audiologist come to me was a professional courtesy; I'm sure a house call would cost much more than the $50 to $150 fee I mentioned in the story. Any one-off product will be expensive because there's no way to achieve economy of scale. The mold they fabricated to make my monitors, for instance, are useless to them unless I order another pair some day.

I could see the face of the dude who buys a pair of these and then sits on them and breaks them 20 minutes later.  I would pay for that picture.

Have you ever payed more than $20 for a pair of headphones? Yeah they are expensive as hell but well worth it if you want some really high quality headphones for cheap get the Altec Lansing UHP336 they are rebranded Ultimate ear superfi 3's that are $90 less and have the same audio quality. I highly recommend them. They even have a replaceable chord; and trust once you here those you will want these :D

These sound like they would open up a world of musical experience for the audiophile.

However, what opened up that same experience for me when PC gaming was the EDGE Accoustics (a division of Etymotic Research, Inc.) GX400s. These do carry a smaller yet somewhat hefty $179.99 price tag and are in-ear as well, although not custom fitted. Since they are made for gaming, an inline microphone is present.

I'm finding nothing touches them when it comes to audio while PC gaming. The JH|13 Pros would likely top them, but at a much higher price, of course.

I'm left wondering why Maximum PC has never reviewed the GX400s...I just can't go back to regular headphones anymore. My GX400s give me too much of an edge in gaming.

For $1100, I would've atleast expected the cost of getting the custom-fit procedure included in the price-tag.
