Jerry Harvey Audio Lola™: Redefining IEMs Using Hybrid Technology
Jerry Harvey has spent a lifetime working in live audio. Along the way, quite famously, Alex Van Halen asked him to look into In-Ear Monitors, a technology that was in its infancy. Unable to find a suitable audio reproduction in the products available, Jerry designed the industry’s first 2-way custom IEM. Since that day over 25 years ago, Jerry has gone on to innovate, redefine, and lead the industry in both the Professional Touring and Audiophile markets.
With the introduction of the Lola™ Hybrid In-Ear Monitor, Jerry Harvey once again introduces a new paradigm shift in what an IEM can do!
The Magic is in the Midrange.
Custom IEM designs have mainly used Balanced Armatures due to the size limitations of the custom shell and when implementing Hybrid designs, many favor using dynamic driver technology as Bass drivers. Jerry Harvey’s breakthrough quad driver designs use multiple Balanced Armatures, and when implemented correctly have very tight, accurate bass response and great high mid to high frequency extension. Though, Jerry felt they lacked warmth and air in the mid bands from 200Hz to 3kHz.
With Jerry’s history of working in live audio reproduction, he has tuned 100’s of large arena PA systems and has long favored the natural, airy sound of 12 inch Dynamic cone midrange drivers. The task was to overcome the limit of size.
Innovation: D.O.M.E™ Technology
Enter Jerry Harvey and his all-new patent pending D.O.M.E™ (Dual Opposed Mid Enclosure) technology to shake things up! In order to get the response he was looking for in this new piece, Jerry sourced 4.9mm dynamic drivers and designed a phase-correct band pass enclosure to house them inside the IEM. This tuned enclosure is custom 3D printed in our lab and holds two 4.9 dynamic drivers that oppose each another, giving Lola™ a 9.8mm effective midrange driver in a small package.
Lola’s Hybrid design utilizes a proprietary Dual Low Balanced Armature covering from 10Hz to 200Hz, the mid utilizes D.O.M.E™ technology which handles 200hz to 3kHz, and a Quad Balanced Armature from 3khz to 20kHz.
Lola™ also features Freqphase™ technology, proprietary 4-pin connectors, and 10dB of user adjustable Bass response that JHAudio IEMS are famous for!
Lola™ is a game changing IEM.
Lola™ Hybrid IEMs feature Dual Low and Quad High Balanced Armatures and Dual Dynamic 4.9mm Drivers that utilize patent pending D.O.M.E™ Midrange Enclosure Technology.
Lola™ is a balance of power, detail, and warmth. Quick in its bass response, extraordinary in its detail, extension out to 20kHz and a natural, silky, airy gorgeous midrange courtesy of our D.O.M.E™ technology. Lola™ has an extraordinary analog sound stage that complements string instruments, as well as vocals, and makes a ‘58 Les Paul through a Marshall 4x12 cabinet sound kick ass.
