Hey man, I love my JH 16 Pros. The way we run IEMs is probably different than how you are, but i love the sound i get from them. Yes they are very sterile sounding and dry but thats mostly because they are SO clean its ridiculous. Because of this you have to mess with the EQ of the ears from the monitor console maybe have your monitor guy through on some master reverb/compression to make things sound more organic. One of the main reasons i signed with JH was because they have excellent artist relations!!
