@tom

Thanks for the clarification! biggrin.gif

Sucks to be monolingual....

 

So I guess you guys ARE are referring to to Knowles models?

Sorry, I don't love you as much I do Sinocelt. Guess that means I'm not getting one for either of you? tongue_smile.gif

 

 

 

Well that's disappointing.

Is the Monet a universal, or a custom?

Looks like a custom:


Translating the page on FitEar's website also mentions a "custom shell".

I think they are customs :(  ..................I just ordered the 334 today :)

 

Good that I still don't have the customs bug yet!

Yes and no. The ED and CI are from Knowles, the 3300 is from Sonion. I thought you'd know this. Didn't you DIY your own CIEMs?

I thought it was CL... Nope, I was wrong.

 

Haven't heard of Sonion.

 

Yep, but didn't look much into the drivers. I was having more trouble with the plastics. 

I just used a single GQ which included a tweeter + woofer + crossover.

Odd. This picture clearly shows four receiver units; the two little ones seem right, just like EDs, but the big ones in the back are clearly not one single unit, as the specs say, and they look like two separate, very large CI drivers... Maybe it's done on purpose to confuse people (like me) and prevent them from instantly breaking down their component technology the moment it comes out? Well, if I didn't do it, someone from Japan surely would've. They're even better at it than I am! Heh.

Looking at things through the shell can be very deceiving..... 

as I've learned from drilling holes in my DIY customs. biggrin.gif

Well, no, I've seen enough to know what I'm saying, but ever since the 335DW came out, I kept wondering why they kept it as 335 instead of 345, since the lows use a dual CI instead of a single CI. It was very confusing, as they've always been very forthcoming with their numbering scheme. I have an odd suspicion that they have a specially made dual-CI driver (essentially two CIs glued together to output to a single port) from Knowles. I haven't seen enough pictures of the 335DW to confirm that, and I've seen nothing from the Japanese blogs that tell me that as well. The picture of the FITEAR-1 and FITEAR-2 in their link doesn't necessarily mean that those two drivers are used in the Monet. It's also possible that they mean 'unit' as in one functional entity that outputs to a single bore, which would make more sense.

Hope they make a universal fit of this.

 

Finished tip rolling, using Heir's small red tips. No vacuum seal.

Well, I can only tell you that, prior to their getting custom labels (which was before they introduced the TO GO! line), they clearly used the ED-29689, 33A007, and CI-22955 for their drivers. Once they introduced the TO GO! 334, those drivers were relabeled 122X, denoting that those particular drivers belonged to a particular model. For example, the 335DW uses the model number 1225, the Monet, from what it looks like uses 1221. High drivers (always the ED, except for the C435, which uses the TWFK) are denoted FITEAR-1, mid-low drivers are FITEAR-2. I think they don't use special labels for the CI, and it remains the CI-22955. From what I've seen, the FITEAR-1 has always been the same size as the ED driver. It's possible that they use ED drivers with custom internal damping values and coils to give different impedances, but it shouldn't be too far away from the ED-29689, if at all. They've always used the Sonion 33A007 for mid-lows, so there's no reason to believe that they've changed otherwise with the FITEAR-2. Notice that the typeface on the two drivers in the link are of differing quality etching, meaning they're probably from different companies, namely Knowles and Sonion. I have a 33A007 in my Frankenstein IEM right now, and I can tell you it looks exactly the same as the FITEAR-2, except for the lettering, of course. While the 3300 and DTEC look very similar, they're not exactly alike, and the FITEAR-2 looks more like a 3300 than a DTEC. The only Knowles driver that is the same size as the FITEAR-1 is the ED. Notice, however, that it's a little different from the stock ED-29689, as it has the option for a center vent hole, which is plugged up by solder in the picture.

wao that's a great deal of info you have there. Many thanks for the clarification.

 

Just wondering if the customized high driver they are using now (FITEAR1) is actually the 2389? If FitEar decides to go with 3300 in long term it would make sense to use the 2389 instead of the ED for their lower price while retaining nearly all the good qualities of the ED.

 

The 3300's taps are of a different config compared to the DTEC, I always look at the back of the driver to figure out which model it is. biggrin.gif

Yeah, I've been curious about a possible ED >> 2389 secret switcheroo as well; it makes sense.

How DO you guys figure out the models of BA drivers?

so many of the looks so similar... I've yet to figure out what's in my UE11's except for the CI with clear distinct features....

 


@tom

You make (C)IEMs ?? eek.gif
