Jerry Harvey Audio 13V2 Pro Review

Here at Audio46, we often find professional in-ear monitors at lower prices.  Inexpensive but capable models like the Mackie MP-240 and the Shure SE215 seem to dominate this landscape.  And while Shure does offer the high-end SE846, ultra-premium in-ear monitors are still generally rare.  Enter Jerry Harvey Audio with their 13V2 earphone.  At $999, this […]

The latest collaboration between audio smiths Astell & Kern and Jerry Harvey, the Billie Jean finally graces my review desk.  But at a sweet, low $349, how does this earphone sound?  Does it really change the way you hear music, as Astell & Kern claims?  Is the sound worth all that cheddar?  Could you modify […]
