JH Audio Sharona IEMKnowles Corporation and JH Audio have jointly announced Sharona, a 16-driver IEM with four-way crossover and the first IEM to incorporate the treble output capability of the new Knowles balanced armature Supertweeter.

The Knowles Supertweeter features a patented coil design with reduced inductance, paired with a specially constructed high-stiffness, low-mass reed that claims ‘unprecedented’ output and treble frequency extension without requiring an amplifier or transformer. The Supertweeter’s small form factor is easier to integrate compared to alternative technologies such as MEMS or electrostatic drivers. The Supertweeter’s small size and ability to reach an ultra-high frequency of 40kHz also make it an ideal option for delivering lossless and high-resolution audio in premium True Wireless Stereo (TWS) earphones.

Sharona’s 16 drivers comprise four Supertweeters, four woofers, four midranges and four tweeters. The Supertweeter reckons to take treble performance to ‘a whole new level’, and in tandem with the other 12 drivers enables high-definition audio to give musicians a ‘realistic’ music experience. Sharona also draws on JH Audio’s proprietary Freqphase Technology for phase accuracy.

‘Exceptional sound quality is a key differentiator for musicians and sound engineers who rely on in-ear monitors on stage and in the studio,’ says Knowles Hearing Health Technologies Vice President and GM, Jon Kiachian. ‘The new Supertweeter offers exceptionally clean extended treble via its unique coil and reed designs, and we’re proud to partner with JH Audio as they continue to create solutions favored by music professionals and audiophiles alike.’

‘We’ve been trying to achieve this frequency response for years,’ says JH Audio President and founder, Jerry Harvey. ‘It wasn’t possible until JH Audio partnered with Knowles to develop the new Supertweeter.

‘The addition of the Supertweeter delivers expansive stereo imagery full of depth and width while creating more air for high-range reproduction. Sharona is the best IEM I’ve ever designed, and we’re excited for everyone to hear it.’
