JH Audio has unveiled the Jimi Custom IEM, the first launch from its all-new ICON Series. Inspired by some of the greatest legends in rock and roll, the ICON Series bring the next wave of innovative and creative thinking into the IEM world.
A funky, smooth, yet electric IEM, Jimi is configured with seven balanced armatures and loaded with all of the newest tech, including JH Audio's latest 7-pin cable design, built-in acoustic sound chamber, and Purple Haze – a stunning new signature design crafted from live edge wood and resin, finished off with gold logos.
Incorporating a 7 balanced armature design, Jimi utilizes dual low, single mid, and quad high balanced armatures to give a smooth bass response adjustable to +12db, while the 7-pin cable is JH Audio's most premium to date; crafted from high purity OFC 4N silver-plated litz wire which will not oxidize or green.
Jimi is robust, too: the German-made 7-pin connector is made from military-grade iridium, designed to create a tight grip at the connection, simultaneously simplifying install and removal. Harsh environments have also been considered: a built in O-ring keeps the connection between the cable and earpiece dry, while the cable itself boasts an improved memory wire around the ear for a more secure fit.
The acoustic sound chamber's 3D printed, recessed tubing system is the first of its kind, keeping sweat at bay and alleviating the need for excessive cleaning, while patented freqphase technology ensures the correct phase and time alignment of all frequencies, resulting in the most accurate music reproduction.
Jimi Custom IEMs offer a frequency response from 10Hz to 23kHz, an input sensitivity of 117dB @1mW, a 17 ohms impedance, and a noise isolation of -26dB.
Pre-sale for Jimi begins on 11/18, which will start shipping in December 2019.
Jimi Custom IEM starts at $1,699 USD, while the optional Purple Haze Signature Design is priced at $1,100 USD.
