Last Week's Most Interesting

By the time you read this, CanJam '09, the international Head-Fi meet at L.A., should be over. As far as IEM goes, the biggest news is probably the return of Jerry Harvey to the custom IEM business. In case you are wondering who Jerry is: He is the co-founder and ex-CTO of Ultimate Ears. After leaving UE around mid 2007, Jerry started his own little business on custom molded airplane headset - Now, he is back to making more awesome custom IEM. His new company, Jerry Harvey Audio, just announced the JH 13 Pro, a three-ways six-receivers custom IEM, on CanJam '09, joining 4 other models that have been previously announced. Hits this link to find out more detail. JH13 Pro will run you about US$1100 plus a trip to your audiologist and the fee for ear mold.

Music Valley is a brand new IEM company in the market. I got a chance to listen to their first offering, the Silver Prologue One (SP1), and I am quite impressed. It is simply a very solid entry class IEM. You can read one of its review here. MSRP US$80.

Also, free review samples are never sold for any financial gain. I do buy gears and review them, but for simplicity you (the reader) should always assume what I review is free sample in nature (and thus comes with all the bias). The website does have Google Ads and Amazon Associates enabled (which I have no direct control over their content) - though I don't write review for a living, nor does the ads generates enough money to cover my breakfast (in fact, not even one breakfast per week). Listening to music and playing with audio gears are purely hobby for me. In short, I am just an audiophiles who happens to have his own blog. Not a journalist who happens to be an audiophile. Oh, and excuse my writing as I am not a native English speaker and can't afford a proofreader. Also, just because I don't write in a negative tone doesn't mean I don't write down the negative aspect of a gear. Please read them carefully.
