ORLANDO, FL – October 24, 2013 – Jerry Harvey Audio, top-rated in-ear monitor and industry technology leader, is providing custom JH Ambient FR IEMs for The X-Factorʼs Top 16 Contestants. “This month The X-Factor field is being narrowed and each artist will now have the opportunity to perform at their peak, because they will have the best engineered in-ear monitor behind each of their performances. These contestants will be the first to experience this brand new product,” says Chuck Reynolds, music industry veteran and Director of Sales for Jerry Harvey Audio.

Jerry Harvey Audioʼs JH Ambient FR is the worldʼs first ambient custom in-ear monitor with FreqphaseTM technology, bass response with eight drivers per ear with dual quad low-frequency drivers that reduce distortion, and increase headroom that deliver greater sound detail and accuracy. “My JH Ambients are the only IEMs that give you dual quad drive technology across the entire frequency range,” says product inventor Jerry Harvey. “For The X-Factor contestants, it is the -15dB of isolation eliminating stage volume and ambient noise that will be critical. Basically, the JH Ambient allows the performer to feel the audience while at the same time hear their own voice. It is about equipping them with the best products so they can give their performance,” Harvey adds.

Wow!! That’s Loud!


Too-Loud-1(reposted from earlier)

Alright.. everyone raise their hands who spent the afternoon with either a chainsaw or string trimmer and felt a little “cloudy” or “muffled” afterwards. Yeah, a lot of us. Put your hands down. Now, how many of us have spent the day on an ATV or motorbike in the backwoods and had that “cloudy” or “muffled” feeling afterwards? OK…. put your hands down. Now how many of us  also enjoy listening to music, not just listen, but REALLY listen to the music? Most of us! Did you know you can be damaging your hearing and also hindering your ability to listen to music in a more critical way? Check out some of these numbers below of how loud it can be!

Now here is how long you can be exposed to those levels before temporary damage or hearing loss can occur. Some of these times are VERY short!

8hrs ……………………| 90dB
6hrs ……………………| 92dB
4hrs ……………………| 95db
3hrs ……………………| 97dB
2hrs ……………………| 100dB
1 1/2hrs ………………| 102dB
1hr………………………| 105dB
30min …………………| 110dB
15 min or less ………| 115dB

These numbers should wake ya up a little bit. Mowing the law for more than 30 min can start to cause hearing damage, which could lead to permanent hearing loss… no, that is not a good excuse to get out of mowing the lawn kids, sorry!

So next time you go to take the ATV out or do some yard work, think about what damage you could be causing to your precious hearing and look into some decent earplugs!

How Your Ear Works


Did you get a chance to check out our Custom Hearing Protection yet? If not, get over there! Summer is about here and lots of us are hitting the festival scene or doing some yard work.

If we’re going to talking about protecting our ears and hearing it might be a good idea to start with how our ears and sound interact. Sure most of us have heard the names of the parts in the ear during a biology class in High School, but how many of us pay attention to what our daily lives do to our ears and hearing. Here is a great old skool (AKA 1940’s) video on hearing and our ears. It’s about 10 min in length… oh and the “Chuckie” looking drawing of a boy at about 1:20 in is worth it!

Spotlight on Custom Earplugs


With Summer almost here, most of us are outside thinking about the next big music festival, getting out on the trails with our motocross bike or ATV and some of us are using lawnmowers or chain saws, but most of us are NOT thinking about one important factor, our hearing!

Ever wonder what that buzz was in your ears or why everyone sounds muffled to you after leaving a rocking show?…. it’s called Temporary Threshold Shift and it can lead to permanent hearing loss.

We’ll spend sometime going over these effect, but in the mean time, check out our Musician’s Earplugs (perfect for the musician or concert-goer) and our Soft Earplugs that are great for those noisy days of yard work.
