“I bought these because I previously had some Yamaha EPH20 In-Ear Headphone which I was happy with but did not suite my for the large variety of music I listen to. First I will compare between the Yamaha and Sony, both brands I trust greatly for budget ear buds. The yamaha I brought because I fancied something with some booming bass,fit was excellent and kept the noise out well I even used...” --Hawkinssa
“first of all, i believe, sony wanted to make hybrid earbuds for a better sound my expanding the soundstage, however the strategy failed. the soundstage has improved (the large size helps a lot too), but the isolation lacks and the sounds are distant (they seem tiny as if they're far away). the ex300 and ex500 from sony offered better soundstage and isolation. as for sound, yes,...” --thesurvivor90
“ As of 2013, I could only find one pair of these on the internet. It's a shame because from my experience, cheap earbuds are oriented around the muffled bass emphasis and exhausting higher mid ranges. I myself came from the Audio Technica a900x and Bose IE2's which sound darker compared to these $10 earbuds. I love rich vocals and acoustic...” --Nec3
“ I orederd a pair of JH 16Pro IEMs in May. It is now June 15th. Since ordering the first pair, I have returned at my cost of $21.15 each time, the IEMs three times. Each time, Caleb Ellis, who manages the department that makes the IEMs, said he could not explain what had happened. The left IEM of the first pair fitted perfectly with the impressions I paid an ...” --rollinoswald
“ The JH13 Pro was my first purchase of high-end personal audio equipment so it's difficult for me to provide a fair comparison (prior to purchasing them, I was listening to iPhone earbuds), but I can safely say that I couldn't possibly be happier with my purchase. The process of getting the impressions made was painless (albeit a bit expensive in the San Francisco Bay Area), and...” --WKHarmon

“ Intro The first CIEM by JHAudio, the JH5Pro has been a long-existing audio option for those looking for a custom fit at a lower price. That being said, lower price isnt necessarily a good descriptor, as it starts at $400, and can easily go higher when custom graphics, custom cables, shipping, and rushes are added. In addition, a lower price entails a compromise in sound quality...” --grapefruit
“ First of all, I’d like to thank Mach3 (Peter) for generously lending me his Sony EX1000s. I am not affiliated nor against Sony in any way. Introduction Sony needs no introduction to the audio world and I’m sure that a lot of you would have heard Sony EX1000 as Sony’s previous flagship IEM. The Sony EX IEM line has been replaced with the newer XBA line, which many, including me...” --lin0003
