DESCRIPTION

THE COMBINATION OF JERRY HARVEY'S IEM DESIGN & ASTELL&KERN'S QUALITY PRODUCTION

Experience JH Audio's iconic Rock ‘n Roll sound with the Astell&Kern Billie Jean. It uses two customised balanced armature drivers. These drivers are similar to the ones designed for the famed Siren Series that are known for their reference-quality IEMs that offer a frequency range of 10Hz and 5kHz. The high-range driver delivers the treble with minimum distortion while the full-range driver offers an absolutely flat mid-range and really deep, distortion-free bass.

EXCELLENT TIMING FOR ACCURATE SOUND REPRODUCTION

Multiple-driver IEMs can cause timing issues as each driver has a different response time. The patented Freqphase® Time and Phase Waveguide technology use precisely cut tube lengths for both the Billie Jean’s drivers. This aligns them to 1/100ms and minimises the phase shift of each frequency resulting in an extremely accurate reproduction of sound.

NO INTERFERENCE, ONLY GREAT SOUND

The acoustic chamber has been crafted with a special sound bore design. This not only reduces interference but also gives you a wide soundstage and unparalleled dynamic range.

FITS LIKE A DREAM

Unlike a good number of JH Audio IEMs that are too bulky to fit most people’s ears, the Billie Jean’s housings have been designed after numerous studies of the ear canal. They are 30% smaller and lighter than the popular Michelle Limited and fit seamlessly in your ears giving you ample noise isolation and comfort.

STRONG, FLEXIBLE & GREAT-SOUNDING CABLES

The Billie Jean has a silver-plated copper cable that is wrapped in Kevlar (the material used in body armour). This gives it high tensile strength while giving you an entire dynamic range of music. The intertwined design, reduces the stress on the cable, making it easily adjustable around the outer ears giving you a more secure and comfortable fit. It terminates with a 2-pin connector on one end & a 3.5mm jack on the other.

Expert Verdict "Some matches are made in heaven.The Billie Jean in-ear monitors deliver clean, engaging, well-balanced sound at a reasonable price for the audiophile and music lover alike."
Tech Hive
"The Meze Rai Solo will be the best sounding for most people. It’s easier to listen to for longer periods and it’s the most comfortable to wear for those long periods."
Dark Audio

"The IO reminds me of the Atlas. Not that they have a similar tuning but rather the bold focus by brand on developing a tuning that goes in a very specific direction than generalize to the masses."
