JH Audio JH16 Pro First Impressions - Page 203

post #3031 of 3684

I bought the pico slim to go with my JH16 pros and everything I listen to sounds like live music, I'm not even exaggerating. The pico slim gives the JH16 pros a lot of energy, it's hard to describe but it just makes everything sound more alive, the bass sounds richer as well. The JH16 pro will sound great using just an ipod but it wasn't until I found an amp, particularly the pico slim (because I have tried other amplifiers that didn't complement the sound of the jh16 pro well) that I enjoy listening to my music more than I ever have in the past. I HIGHLY recommend the pico slim for the JH16 pros, it complements these iems very well. I'm using the pico slim with the whiplash audio Twag v2, the headamp recommended whiplash audio micro lod and an Ipod classic. The best part in the long run is that I no longer have to listen to my music at high volume levels in order to get a good balanced sound because even on the lowest setting everything sounds balanced and all the details of the recording are present. I didn't realize before that the reason I used to listen to music at high volume was to get a balanced sound from all the instruments in the recording, now I don't have to do that. There's one issue that I have with the pico slim though and it's that there's an audible pop when you power on the amp but that can be avoided by plugging the headphones in after you power on the amplifier.

Great to see you loving the JH16's. See if you can go to a meet and listen to a CLAS and Rx3 combo. You may prompt wallet scare though! :-)

I have the Pico Slim (with iMod 5.5 as a source) that I use with the JH13s and they rig works really well together.  Throw a CLAS in there and it steps everything up a notch..... a big notch!

No thanks I'm good for the foreseeable future. I've tried so long to find a set up I like that now I just want to enjoy my music. There's a particular sound signature that I was going for and I've found it so I'm glad to say that the search is over smile.gif.

Good form. Great to hear that you are satisfied with your rig. I am at that point now too with my portable. I hardly ever listen to my home rig now even.

Would be good to see more photos of head-fiers complete setups using the JH-3A.

My setup consists of JH16's with http://stefanaudioart.com/headphone%20cable%20E%20Series%20JH%2016%20Pro cables joined by  Cypher Labs Algo Rhythm Solo with an iBasso D6, and it sounds sublime.

No

For truly neutral you want JH13. JH16 is mostly neutral except for a somewhat boosted bottom end
post #3041 of 3684
Ahh I see. Just wondering thanks guys

JH 16 has a slight V shape spectrum compared to neutral IMO.

My view is try the iBasso Pb2 with HiFlight opamps or just go all the way with an Alo Rx3. Both running balanced output. The increase in spaciousness is like going from stereo to a surround setup.

hello

im sorry if this was already mentioned

i just got my jh16.

i do not consider myself an audiophile.

with the jh16, is there a huge difference between 320kbps ogg vorbis and flac/lossleess?

I always could never hear the difference

Does the jh16 really show the clear difference if I just run it unamped from my macbook pro or ipod touch?

im asking cuz flac is so hard to get for me and I am not sure if it is worth the effort to get those file types

thanks

Hi, i'm new to this forum but reading it for a couple of days already.

 

I received my jh16pro yesterday. AMAZING!!

 

Can someone please post some pictures with the soft wrap applied?

 

my jh16 fit very well and they don't hurt but as soon as i start walking i can hear a little clicking noise every now and then. it also happens while yawning, eating and drinking. does anybody else have that?

 

they might need a refit but that's only going to happen after my vacation....

 

thanks
