Hello haven't been on theses forums since I bought my Grado rs1 7 years ago. The only portable headphones I have currently have are the cheap skull candy inked. They currently are not cutting it for hearing my mix in a band context as everything gets cloudy and muffled when everyone is playing. As a listening headphone I actually think it's really good for portable use and value but I don't have any experience with iem.

My question is I've read jh13 is good for personal use but the jh16 might be better suited for louder environments ie-band setting(plus I ride a motorcycle so it'd be a nice addition). So would the jh16 be better for band setting? I personally think the grado rs-1 and inked have normal amounts of bass would the jh-13 sound bass anemic to me? Also this is a lot of dough I've been contemplating getting a cheaper iem like 1964 qi and using the rest of the money for better full size headphones or speakers. Any experience with 1964 vs jh?
