JH Audio Freqphase JH16Pro And JH13 In-Ear Monitors Review

JH16InEarJh Audio’s Freqphase is a new technology to take care of a very important technical detail about accurate and clear stereo sound reproduction when using multiple drivers, as in loudspeakers, or in-ear monitors. It’s phase coherency—good stereo sound depends on the simple fact that all frequencies arrive at our eardrums at the same time and in phase. JH Audio guarantees all frequencies to be within .01 of a millisecond (or 10 millionths of a second) of each other. This new technology has been first implemented into JH Audio’s JH-16Pro (previously reviewed in these pages) and the JH13Pro in-ear monitors. FreqphaseTM uses sculpted waveguides to channel and combine the sound from the multi-drivers to produce a phase-coherent response—especially important for sounds that are panned and mixed between 10 and 2 o’clock—the midway panned positions between center and the left or right sides in the stereo image.
