My question is they only have five drivers per ear.
How will they compare the jh16...
will jh audio create their own version for this?
That sounds like a process that could take days or even weeks considering your ears would have to first adjust to the new sound signature each time and certain headphones have to ability to grow on you while others impresses at first but are a disappointment later down the road. One would have to be very knowledgeable and know specifically the type of sound they are after. Nevertheless a very interesting concept indeed.
Again, the process is straightforward, but I've given UE some minor suggestions that I think would help make the tuning process even more intuitive.
For me, there was a five- to ten-minute window that involved a lot of extreme left-right turning of the tuning knobs, just to get a handle on their effects, and the range of their effects. As I got more comfortable with my understanding of what they were doing to my music, I continued from there.
Given that I already have several custom IEMs of different sound signatures, I admit I was rather adventurous with my tuning of the PRM, not so much in terms of tonal balance overall, but especially in trying to tune out the left-right discrepancy of my own ears. I'm very curious to see how I did.
This seems very interesting indeed, and for 2K I hope they put the tuning box in more locals because Nashville would be the closest place for me. I've been looking into getting a custom for quite sometime now and though these are really expensive it sounds like something I'd be interested in getting. The fact you can tune it to your preference awesome and I could see these being something I'd use for years and years, very cool.
It is very reasonable to take your time and adjust the knobs to understand their individual effects on the overall sound signature...once the effects are understood, then you tune to taste....you did the right thing Jude. It is definitely intended to make up for Left/Right deltas in one's hearing ability....so great work!
