JH Audio JH16 Pro

The JH16 offers the world’s first phase-coherent audio in an earphone that provides a more accurate, natural and authentic sound. The new JH16 Pro with Freqphase is similar to the original JH16 Pro and packs eight drivers per ear, double dual lows, a single dual mid, and a single dual high. The custom-made, hand-made unit also includes an integrated 3-way crossover.

You’ll need to take an ear-mold and send those impressions off to JH Audio. You can pick your custom color-scheme from a variety of options. It will take almost 25-30 days to arrive at your doorstep.

The first JH16 Pros were excellent for their accuracy and for the strength of their sound. The new ones feel even incredible, as they  have a broader soundstage and a focused speaker setup than earphones. They are available at a starting price of $1,149.

Verdict

The customized JH16 Pro IEMs are a luxury in a world where low-cost custom earphones are becoming more widely available. But for a true music lover, the JH16 Pro and Freqphase are worthwhile.
