There isn't a Lola thread so let's start one!  Impressions and discussions welcome regarding this mid-dynamic unique proprietary D.O.M.E design!

I find it interesting that they've decided to put the dynamics in the mid range instead of the low.  This should be a very thick sounding IEM with excellent decay, dynamism, extension and speed in the mids.

Thanks @Ike1985

I'll bring my post here. It's interesting for me to hear how this new technology will sound. I'm a fan of hybrids :p
  https://www.jhaudio.com/product/lola-hybrid-custom-ear-monitor
 
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.


So apparently it is like this:
2 BA lows - 2 Dynamic mids - 4 BA highs
 
And this D.O.M.E™ Midrange Enclosure Technology is quite interesting:

I guess this will create a more natural timbre on the reproduction of vocals and acoustic sound. Am curious how they'll sound, let us wait and hear.

Isn't it a bit similar to the push pull dynamic drivers of Ocharaku?


You're right, it is. The Ocharaku with 10 mm drivers, and a space in between with an air tube/pipe. The DOME with 4.9 mm, enclosed together.

Per Jude on the video, he stated it the best he heard, better than Layla, also someone said that Layla is reference monitor and Lola is musical


It is one of the best he'd heard, along with 'tia Fourte'.

Well this is only Jude's opinion. Some people preferred Roxanne or even JH13 over Layla...matter of taste as well.

2 DDs firing into a chamber that leads to a sound tube? The Brainwavz R3 from 2014 had a similar concept.
 

 
But having a DD chamber and other BAs in the same IEM, that's a different ballgame. 
 
No hate lol, I have JH and Brainwavz stuff, love both.

Many companies have used push/pull but in this case the push/pull sole role is the mid range.

And with 'Lola', it is a hybrid with 4.9 mm dual dynamic :)
