One of my favorite custom IEMs is my JH13 Freqphase, but I do find it's tuning a bit V-shaped. So, I was excited and pleasantly surprised to find the new JH13v2 Pro ($1175) a little more neutral.

I went through the existing line-up and found the A10 ($1799) with m15 module most to my liking. And then stepped up to two new models, the U18 Tzar and Tia. Chris Ogut, 64 Audio product development engineer, explained these begin to show a future direction for the company with a novel tubeless approach.

I really enjoyed reviewing the Meze Classic so I couldn't pass up the chance to listen to their new, low-cost in-ear monitor line-up.

Wow! One heck of a facelift on this amp compared to what we saw at CES and CanJam SoCal this year.

Day two in the big top. Man there's a lot of IEM makers in here. Maybe it's because the barriers to entry are low, but I sure wouldn't want to be in that business...the competition is fierce. Worse, each manufacturer has numerous products in the line, oft times touting a different tuning for each product. Headphones have gotten a lot better over the last few years, but I don't see the same progress on the in-ear side...or not as much anyway. Too many bright IEMs, it seems to me. I want to see someone who has a line that's nicely tuned throughout...and guess what, I did find a company with such a line. We'll get to that down the page.

Wheeeee! Gonna be an interesting show this year. Lots of good stuff showing up, as usual, but the venue is going to be a little hard to choke down. The Denver Marriott Tech Center has undergone a massive upgrade that was supposed to have been complete by now...which, unfortunately, has run behind schedule.
