Hmm. Well let me know which you prefer out of the three. I have a feeling the Kaede is gonna take the victory even over the 334 ;)...

Off with his ear! lol :P.

 

In all seriousness I look forward to the comparisons. But I'm really interested in hearing how the Kaede compares to the Sui and what exactly are the differences between them... popcorn.gif

Speaking of KAEDE and SUI, V0 compared the vocals of both FitEar and Ocharaku. He seemed to prefer the former brand in general.

 

Since FitEar cables could be replaced easily while the official options might not be all that impressive for such awesome IEMs, is there a way to ask someone such as BTG Audio for making FitEar adapter terminated with female balanced connector?

 

If so, I wonder if Hirose (iBasso) or Kobiconn (RSA/ALO) were better choice.

 

Once that adapter is done, I will start tinkering with flagship cables such as Platinum Eclipse (HK$1,100/ft) from WireWorld and hopefully that would bring FitEar IEMs to the next level.

 

Granted the thinkness and weight are not ideal for a portable setup but I certainly do not mind having that top quality at home. Does it sound like something that could be accomplished without any risks of damaging the IEMs?

They actually sound pretty decent from my Nexus 4, which I have to make due if I don't have a wifi connection around (typically I use MOG streamed from my MBA -> HRT Microstreamer).  They sound decent from my MBA headphone out as well, but a bit of hiss.  They're super sensitive and tend to have some small degree of hiss from most things.

 

That said the improvements from a better source are worth it... and unfortunately as pricey as it is, the 000 cable as well.

If I buy these, I won't have money for an Amp/Dac but if I get the F111, I can get an amp/dac to go with it...
Which to choose?

TG334 without dedicated amp/dac already sound great. F111 and TG334 are different beast. Sound signature of both phones are quite different but both of them already sound great straight out of the player. DAC/Amp will definitely improve their sound.

On the plane trip on Tuesday, I ran out of power on my HP-P1. I plugged the 334s into the headphone jack of the iPod Classic and thought, "I'd forgotten how good the music sounds with the 334s just straight out of the iPod" Pretty darn good.

So, would I save more money when I just get the 334 now then get an amp later???

The Microstreamer is only $190.  Trust me when I say, it's worth it at this price.  If you can swing that within a month or two I highly recommend it.

You can also save money by buying 2nd-hand -- it will save you around $200 -- from Fujiya-Avic or e-earphone in conjunction with forwarding service like Tenso.

I bought my F111 2nd-hand from e-earphone and it saved me $100 even though it is virtually the same as brand-new goods.

IMO, get the 334s if you like what you read about it's sound sig and a amp/DAC could (and should) come when you can swing it.
