UE Pro 4 vs. JH 5 Pro

post #1 of 5
Thread Starter 

Hi guys,

 

I have been doing my research and have found a few topics here and there about these two IEM's...but nothing to satisfy me purchasing one or the other. I know a little about both, but I would like to talk to someone who has owned both or something close.

 

I am sure they are pretty comparable, but which ones would you go with and why? I know JH offers colors and all that, but I am more concerned about function over looks.

That being said, I am a musician and a listener. I do not currently own an amp but would purchase one eventually. Also, I would spend a lot of time listening to them through an ipod as I travel.

I have heard a few fitting issues for the JH's, some poor customer service with UE, but also good things about both...so its a toss up!

 

Any help would be appreciated.

Also may consider the JH 7's vs the equivalent UE's. Are they a close comparison?

 

What about jumping from the JH 5's to the JH 7's? Big difference?

 

Thanks

If you're looking at budget customs, don't forget sleek audio's ct6, and also fidelity customs.

I can only comment on a short listen to the JH5 but I have an experienced ear. The limitations were more at the very extremes than the mids and subtle. Without a listen to a JH13 which I prefer to the 16, some of this would be hard to notice.  A small bit of extra color and surprisingly detailed and natural. I doubt they can be beat for the price. Lovely job of balancing 2 drivers to do better than 3 in others.
