This week’s Picture Sunday features my beloved AK & JH Angie. Check out our recent Picture Posts here and here
Well well. Finally I got to show my little babies on Headfonia. Although many developments and new products have been released, and even though I heard better IEM’s in my audio journey, I still can’t drift apart from the Angies.
Lieven stays faithful to his good old HD650, and I stay faithful to my JH Angie. It’s like that. Some people wanted to buy them and I simply say “they’re not for sale”. You can understand me I suppose. Sometimes you just can’t find that special flavor in any other equipment, no matter how many products you test or get the opportunity to review them.
JH Angie is a 8 driver IEM from Jerry Harvey. The man himself was the inventor of the monitors that today we know of. Maybe the brand is as not popular as it used to be some years ago, but still they have great offerings for personal listening and for professional use. Many renowned artists use JH Audio CIEM’s for their on-stage performances.
JH’s Siren Series have had some overhaul. This one in my possession is the original version. One of the reasons that I absolutely love it is that new FMJ line looks boringly industrial and doesn’t give a premium feeling as the originals do in my opinion. The original version is so sexy that you can’t take your eyes of it. The kevlar casing and carbon face plates are just wonderful to look at. This, I think, is the best designed IEM in terms of color mix and shape. Black and red always works. It fits to my ears like no other, almost a CIEM with foam tips. Or maybe my ears changed their shape because I’ve been continuously using it for almost two years now.
The extremely tall and wide soundstage, or heart touching vocals are just another part of the story, as well as the relaxed and soft approach to music. I don’t think I can ever let it go for another IEM. Yes, I absolutely love the Oriolus IEM and it’s the best for me but JH Angie is the most smooth and romantic one. You don’t find that every once in a while.
