Summary: This is an initial impression of the JH16s right as I got them out of the box.
I gave these monitors a 3-star value because these things really are expensive. I wouldn't call this the "perfect" monitor with the "perfect" sound you're looking for. But these do sound very very good.
Summary: Paid about US$1200, including custom fit, and am overseas.
A very highly detailed and balanced IEM. I have an iPod only filled with audiophile grade music. Put in anything else, and you hear warts and all of lesser recordings.
Pros: Highly detailed, well controlled bass, good tonal balance
Cons: Cost, comes in two versions (coupled with JH's own amp)
