Pros: GREAT Customer service.Amazing sound, comfortable
Cons: none to speak of
I bought these to upgrade from my UE triple fi 10 pro's. I LOVED the Triple fi's, but wanted to go to customs for greater bass response and isolation on stage. (i'm a bass player). The first thing I have to say is that I was kind of torn between UE and JH Audio, but after dealing with both companies now I have to say that if the products are equal in quality, and I think they are pretty close, the reason to go with JH Audio would be the Customer Service you get with these guys. I called on a Saturday to ask a question about ordering on-line. They weren't open, but were in the office in the middle of a move to a new location. Brittany, one of the owners actually answered the phone and helped me place my order. Pretty sure I never got to speak to any owners at UE. Turn around time was advertised to be 5 to 7 business days. My IEM's came in 3 days, the week of Christmas. Amazing! Did I mention they were about $250 cheaper than the comparable UE 11's?
So, when they arrived, the first thing I noticed was that they were beautifully made. The color and artwork were flawless. After trying them out, I quickly compared them to the UE triple fi 10's. No comparison at all. These made the triple's sound like the little white Apple buds by comparison.
The JH 11 pro's have 4 speakers with a 3 way passive crossover giving a very balanced sound that is very clear with no distortion. You hear every thump of the kick drum and splash of the cymbals. Using them on stage as in-ear monitors, I am experiencing the actual sound of my stingray bass in my ears for the very first time. The Bass is what really set these apart for me.
The fit is good. I'm not sure I'm getting the isolation I should be. It is comparable to the Universal Fit Triple's I had before. They sound amazing though and are very comfortable, so I'm not gonna send them back for a tighter fit. I'll leave well enough alone I think.
All in all, I give JH Audio a very enthusiastic recommendation. I'm a customer for life.
