In Part 1 we started talking about which custom monitors are best for you depending on what you play and what you want to hear. The JH-5PRO through the JH-11PRO will take care of pretty much anyone out there, but as we all know…. there are those of us who just need to have it all! This is where the Signature Series of the JH-13PRO and the JH-16PRO come in. We like to call them the “Monsters of the Stage”. Why? Well everyone else who has tried to accomplish 6 or 8 drivers per ear monitor has, well… not been up to par let’s say. These two models also offer the Freqphase time|phase WaveGuide. We took and re-invented how drivers their sound bores are matched and installed and in the process created a sound so exact, so phase correct that it’s putting the industry on end.
Drivers: Dual Low, Dual Mid, Dual High w/ passive 3-Way Crossover
Sensitivity: 10Hz – 20kHz
Response: 116dB @ 1mW
The JH-13 is the world’s first 6 driver ear monitor. It offers a wide frequency response, with increased headroom and dynamic range with virtually zero distortion. Oh and did we mention it has 6 drivers PER EAR??!! If you are looking for incredible clarity (who of us isn’t) then these are the ear monitors for you.
Here is what CNET had to say:
Harvey’s done it again. The performance gains in clarity, detail, resolution, and stereo imaging are huge — the adrenaline-pumping sound of the music you love over a set of Harvey’s headphones can’t be matched by any other in-ear ‘phones.
Guitarist will love how the tone of their amp comes through these beats. You don’t spend days and weeks perfecting your sound only to have it squashed, mashed and distorted in a lesser ear monitor. Drummers, it will feel like you have nothing in your ears. The kick of your drum is full, the snap of your snare is tight and the air of your cymbals will be mesmerizing. Think we might be over building them a little, just read the reviews.
Drivers: Quad Low, Dual Mid, Dual High w/ passive 3-Way Crossover
Response: 10Hz – 20kHz
Sensitivity: 118dB @ 1mW
The JH-16 is the world’s first and finest eight driver ear monitor. (notice how we got to say first on both of these?) The quad low frequency drivers (comprised of 2 dual-driver units) offer lower distortion, increased headroom and greater detail and accuracy. Here is what Pooch, FOH Engineer for Linkin Park had to say about them;
“The JH16 Pro freqphase IEMs are a game changer. In-ear monitor engineers will revel in the ability to reproduce record quality mixes for their artists. They will place instruments with pinpoint accuracy, and never run out of headroom. Artists will be able to turn down because of this accuracy.”
Basically these monsters will handle ANYTHING you toss at them and beat it into a smooth, silky and refined sound reserved for only the finest of studio reference monitors. Guitars sing, vocals are crisp, drums thump, your keyboard will amaze you!
Are they worth it, you bet they are. Just ask anyone who has used them on stage.
Well that covers the custom ear monitors that JH Audio can provide you with. We hope this helped out a little. As always, please drop us a line if you have any questions!
