When we reviewed the JH16 IEMs, one of the reviewers joked about shoving a line array into your ear. Well, it’s not that, but JH Audio is introducing a kind of waveguide that provides the kind of phase and coherency that array designers seek but they are, indeed, putting it in your ear.
From the JH Audio blog site.
By reengineering how and when sound is traveling to your ear, JHAudio has come up with the newest advancement in in-ear technology, the Freqphase Time|Phase Waveguide. Freqphase creates the world’s first phase coherent earphone by delivering the low, mid and high frequencies to your ear at once. Everything in sync. Everything perfect. Freqphase.
Notice the curves in the chart of the competitors six driver, triple bore IEM. The phase curve is slower in the low end and much faster across the mid and high frequencies. The result is a phase curve that is shaped like a ski slope.
Now, look at the JH16Pro phase curve with the Freqphase waveguide. Although it is a few degrees out in some spots it is relatively flat and very phase coherent. This makes a huge difference in the soundstage and imaging, especially anything panned and mixed between 10 and 2 o’clock.
Available for the JH13Pro, JH16Pro and JH16Pro +JH3A.
