I once met Jerry about 10 years ago when he was still with Ultimate Ears. At the time, I had no idea this man would eventually design one of the coolest, most shockingly yummy and satisfying headphone experiences ever. Sonic Gold, my friends. Sonic Gold, indeed.
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. Nothing comes close to the quality you see and hear on these monitors.
If you have the budget, then go get it.
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. I use this with my portable set up, which is played through the CypherLabs DAC and the Go-Vibe Porta Tube amplifier. Cables are ALO but I really did not notice any difference with any good quality cable used.
Pros: Highly detailed, well controlled bass, good tonal balance
Cons: Cost, comes in two versions (coupled with JH's own amp)
