Thanks much!

You don't need an amp for JH16 with AK120. At least not for the main purpose of using an amp, that is to boost signal for difficult to drive headphones. JH16 is pretty sensitive and don't need an amp for that purpose.

Some people will tell you that different amps sound different and to some extent it's true. There are many technical reasons for these differences. Look up high output impedance and high sensitivity low impedance headphones and you will get a different perspective.

However, if you like how JH16 sound with AK120 I would suggest to read more about the subjects mentioned above before you start looking for an amp. Unless you are willing to invest time it will be futile and senseless to ask for an amp recommendation for JH16.

Are the JH16 considered very revealing of bad sources? I listen to a lot of mainstream music and some tracks are quite heavily compressed.
Any comparison to Westone 3, Mad Dog?

They did have them there, and I believe a few dealers in the LA area have demo units as well

Placed my order (with rush processing!) at yesterdays meet, eta April 2nd. I loved the demo, and can only expect the custom to be that much better.

Just gotta figure out what I want art wise today hmm

You guys are so lucky I wish I could go!
Update: I'm waiting until Tuesday to send my jh16's in since a friend of mine owns a ups store and if I could avoid shipping cost why not. They just cause too much pain DX

And they're here!

Gonna give them a few days of listen/burn in, but I'm already loving them, and pretty confident I made the right choice. Like more refined than my 11s, though with double the drivers for every frequency I'd expect them to be smily_headphones1.gif

I am not sure if this has been asked before, but I was not able to find it in my attempt to search.

 

Does anyone knows how to differentiate the old JH16pro vs the JH16pro with FreqPhase by looking through the clear shell?
