        Pros

        • Excellent textured bass and low end tuning
        • Great female presence and large staging
        • Good package, great case and presentation. Solid build, elegant design and easy fit

        Cons

        • Signature very full sounding
        • Some instruments a little distant sounding
        • Not suited to more laid back musical styles

        Jomo Audio are a well respected high end CIEM/IEM brand from Singapore and well known in recent times for their awesome Samba Model which we have reviewed on earphonia.com and rate very highly.

        Using his vast knowledge of signature tuning and building on his previous experience, Joseph has created a triple driver BA which is very modestly price at SGD699 (USD499). So hopefully this universal IEM should be accessible to a wider audience of audiofans.

        He has named this blue beauty the PLB – which stands for Pretty Little Beast

        Specifications:

        • Three precision tuned balanced armature drivers
        • Three ways crossover, One low, one mid and one high, classic design.
        • Two stainless steel sound bores
        • 20Hz ~ 20KHz
        • 19 ohms
        • Hypoallergenic UV acrylic shell with Japanese hybrid opal faceplate

        The Jomo PLB comes in a very impressive looking Caviar Leather large display/protection box.

        Inside the box there is an impressive striking blue CNC machined metal circular carry case.

        Jomo even took the time to laser etch the our brand name onto the box – a nice personal touch.

        The supplied tips worked very well with my ear canal size and I achieved the best signature preference using the double flange tips.

        I also tried Comply foam and SpinFit tips but still preferred the Jomo supplied tips in the end.

        The cable 2-pin fit was very tight and there was no way these shells were going to fall off.

        The cable  is an unassuming silver grey colour with a tight fitting 3.5mm single ended right angled jack. A transparent chin slider is present to help with positioning.

        There is little to no micro-phonics and the single ended jack fits flush and tight on all the DAPs I tried.

        I know some people are not fans of this cable style/colour but I have no problems with it as a stock supplied cable.

        The cable features memory wire also to help with securing placement when worn.
