JH Audio JH 13 Pro: Earphones Actually Worth $US1100

JH Audio's JH 13 Pro earphones have six drivers — two woofers, two midranges and two tweeters, which gives them "dynamics that are so much more visceral" that any other in-ear headphones CNET's Audiophiliac has ever heard.

The bass is "highly addictive" and its "resolution of fine detail is extraordinary", with isolation so solid it'll block screeching train cars. Of course, any headphones this high end require custom moulds from an audiologist, which adds another $US150 to the price. Steve says they're worth $US1100, not just because they're hand-built and designed Jerry Harvey, who founded Ultimate Ears, but because you'll get 10 years of use out of them — which, looked at from that angle, isn't so bad.
