The Siren Series: Angie


You’ve met Layla and Roxanne- now we reach the third member of The Siren Series, Angie. This masterpiece is named after the Rolling Stones song, “Angie.”

Mick Jagger & Keith Richards – by ©Bettmann/CORBIS

Written by Mick Jagger and Keith Richards and recorded in November and December 1972, “Angie” is an acoustic-guitar-driven ballad, which tells of the end of a romance.

Richards, who wrote most of the music and lyrics for the song, claimed in his autobiography that the name Angie was a pseudonym for heroin, and that the song was about his attempt to quit using it while detoxing in Switzerland.

Angie, The Siren Series

Custom Angie IEM

Like all of The Siren Series, Angie is available in a custom as well as universal fit. The custom fit is available to purchase direct from Jerry Harvey Audio. The universal fit, known as the Angie II, is available exclusively through Astell&Kern. The Angie II is also “Full Metal Jacket,” meaning that each body, cap and sound bore are machined from one solid block of titanium with a carbon fiber logo plate insert.

The audio signature is reference quality with the same 4th order crossover network as Layla. Angie’s dual low, dual mid and quad high configuration gives a very accurate representation of what the recording artist and mix engineer intended you to hear. Angie is designed to reach optimum top-end extention with minimal distortion. The mid driver is perfectly flat from 10hz to 5khz and the low driver designed for steeper low pass and with virtualy no distortion. Bass response is perfectly flat when attenuated or up to +10 db of bass boost at 60hz when boosted.

Angie II, The Siren Series

JH Audio/Astell&Kern Universal Angie II IEM

“..as an overall package, the workmanship of the Angie’s form factor is a masterpiece to behold that puts many other top tier IEMs to shame. It is also a testament of what can happen when a company uses its head and designs for the wear and tear of everyday real world use while proving that well-built doesn’t mean an IEM has to look ugly.” – Arlindo Borges, http://www.headphone.guru

The Siren Series: Roxanne


Jerry Harvey has been pushing the boundaries of in-ear monitor sound and design for over two decades, so don’t expect an exception with the Roxanne. Jerry Harvey Audio is pleased to offer this masterpiece in both Custom and Universal fit.

Roxanne-FMJ1
The Roxanne Universal sounds decidedly like its Custom counterpart and features the same sound tubes and internal wiring, though it comes packaged in our Full Metal Jacket machined Aluminum shells and Titanium and Carbon Fiber cap. Gorgeous.

 

Whether you choose Custom or Universal: Roxanne offers superior sound, featuring soundrIVe technology with 12 balanced armature drivers (quad lows + quad mids + quad highs) per side. Roxanne includes a 4-pin replaceable cable, which has built-in variable bass control which is user adjustable (0 to +15dB) and an impedance rated at 15 Ohms.  As always all JH Audio in-ears are made in the USA.

Roxanne, featured in our optional carbon fiber shell; a first for the IEM industry.
RoXanne_Hanging
“Audiophiles like to toss around the word “transparency” to describe high levels of clarity to the sound of their components, speakers, and headphones, and now I’m going to do it with the Roxanne. Its transparency exceeds all other in-ear headphones I’ve heard, and I’ve heard most of the world’s best in-ear headphones.”
