JH16 Pro In-Ear Monitors Review

Maclife
10 March 2011
  • Conclusion: Obviously $1,200 (after paying for ear molds) is a lot of money to spend, even on fancy earbuds. If music is your passion -- or profession -- then yeah, they’re probably worth it. But for everyone else, plenty of great earbuds can be had at a fraction of the cost.
  • Pros: Absolutely stunning sound quality.
  • Cons: Price puts them out of reach for all but the most dedicated music fans. Included waterproof OtterBox case is unnecessarily bulky (but tough).

  • Summary: Nice full range frequency response IEM's, the best I have heard. I play out DJing and doing  live performances, and also do lots of field recording. They are much smaller in size in comparison to my UE-18's (Ultimate Ears).
  • Pros: tight controlled bass response, smaller flaceplate over the UE IEMs
  • Cons: the fit wasn't quite right on both of my IEM, had to send back

  • Summary: I have to say the JH16Pro Freq-phase are outstanding.  < That's the short version for those who would post TL:DNR (too long : did not read).  Take advantage of the 15% off pre-Xmas sale NOW!
  • Pros: Impressive sound for the price, reduces my need for a $5,000 Stax SR-009
  • Cons: Is too much isolation a real problem? No mic on the headphone cable for iPhone.

  • Summary: Perfect fit first try, using a closed mouth ear impression.  Funny thing is that this thing hits my ear bones.  For some reason, my ear canal is not soft tissue, it's hard bone.  I can't even wiggle it, it stays in place, and I may even break it with my ear canal if i press hard against it.
  • Pros: Very accurate and revealing, insane bass ability
  • Cons: will amplify any bad sources to the point of insanity

  • Summary: Damn - I wish I had bought these IEMs years ago.  This is just an unbelievable improvement in comparison with my UE 10 - which were breathtaking in 1996.  The JH16 just explode with attack and bass slam - but are just terrific across the entire sound spectrum.
  • Pros: Lots of detail with a wonderful transparent soundstage - with great slam on the bass.

  • Summary: I've had UE11s for the past 8 years and I finally made the jump to JH16. They are worth every penny. The bass is light years ahead of UE11s and just so much more full-bodied and multi-layered - like biting into a hearty piece of finely aged steak!
  • Pros: The bass is so full bodied! The mid and highs are just as decadent! Fantastic Fit
  • Cons: zero

JH Audio JH16 Pro

PC Magazine
20 February 2011
  • Conclusion: Only Jerry Harvey, the founder of Ultimate Ears, would know how to match his former company (and primary competition) so perfectly. JH Audio's JH16 Pro custom-molded earphones sound sublime, but just like the competition, they cost a small fortune.
  • Pros: Top-notch audio performance. Superb fit—assuming you go to a reputable audiologist for your ear molds. Near-perfect ear-to-ear matching of frequency response.
  • Cons: Incredibly expensive. Cable tangles easily.
