I was just casually browsing the net this evening, looking at flagship CIEMs.
Above my pricerange, but out of curiosity, I Googled for Fitear, expecting to find the MH334 (which I did):
But I ALSO found the following (note the URL name):
This doesn't appear (to me, at least) to be the same company or IEM, in spite of the dubiously-similar URL name, and I'm intrigued, as I've never heard anyone mention the PS-5.
It looks to be a 3-way 5-driver, whereas the Fitear Japan MH334 is a 3-way 4 driver IEM.
Owing to the URL of this website being 'Fit-ear.com' my initial reaction was to wonder if it might be a slight variant of the MH334 under an English name, but no.. it looks quite different to me. However, it does look to be moulded to a very high standard. I wonder if these may be outsourced, perhaps?
Whatever the case, I'm thinking they have no relationship whatsoever to Fitear Japan.
Still, I'd be very interested to know if anyone has purchased and/or heard the PS-5. At $1650 for a relatively unknown USA brand, it's certainly in premium custom territory and should be expected to sound very good indeed. Those canal inserts look unusually long, too.
Can anyone shed any light on this..?
