Of course no where near the level of the TG!334s but for walking around and little fear of misplacing them since they're not expensive.

 

Interesting about the 334's and 000. I found the difference between the 000 and the stock cable to be a slight improvement - and this is even after balancing the 000's. Having said that, the stock cable already "blew me away".

 

One thing I'd like to note though. Back in May & July when ALO Audio and I got the 000 cables, I had ALO slice and balance my 000's. Back then FitEar wouldn't reveal what the cable was made of. As such whilst ALO was doing the balancing, they found out that it's pure silver. 2 weeks ago when I met ALO again, I asked them for a re-confirmation and they did that their 000 sample and my July-purchased 000 was indeed silver.

 

However in recent Monet news, there was information about the 000 cable published and it said it was silver-plated copper. If FitEar followers remember correctly there was a time the 000 went out of stock (think in August or September). I'm wondering if the 000 has gone for a change during these past few months and it's content changed from pure silver to silver-plated copper.

 

Which is why I tried to separate them with paragraphs XD I like the 1Rs :)

 

That's interesting, I'd like to see/hear that.

When I was trying to figure out what this cable was a few months back I found this tweet from last May by Suyama-san:

He basically says he tried all sorts of wire (including pure silver) and decided the SPC had the best balance and flexibility with different sources. \

 

I suppose if the individual strands are small enough it might be easy to mistake SPC for pure silver.

Cheers...hmm...it would be surprising if someone like ALO misidentifies the 000 cable though considering they are in the cable business themselves. They mentioned to me they understood why the 000s cost so much (then). Anyway guess it's better for me not to find out otherwise I may be disappointed (price to value ratio).

Well, it's unlikely ALO actually did a metallurgic analysis on the cable... ostensibly, SPC often looks and measures very similarly to pure silver, especially if the electroplating is very robust.

This is the EQ I use with my FitEar ToGo 334s most of the time (-3db at the bottom end and +3db at the top end):


With this EQ it sounds a lot more neutral, like the Hifiman RE262 with less peaky mids.

I actually use +3db on the treble to make ot more airy, but it adds some unnatural hissing sound on my andriod.

out of the dx100 line out, the 334 sounds very very transparent and the vocals sound natural ...

 

when paired with mk3, it adds a bit more soundstage and bass but made the vocals a lot warmer ime..

I just found this news. They'll introduce a special edition of 111 that come out along with new iriver player (AK100-111IS). The 111 is specifically tuned for the player.

From that FR graph they released, it looks like they bumped up the bass a good few dB, and rolled the treble off, beginning at around 6k, if we compare it to the original graph that they put out of the prototype F111... So, bassier with rolled-off treble...

Have you confirmed this via blind ABX testing? Is the difference very notable?

Hmm...I'm tempted to drop an e-mail to Suyama-san about this. I would be surprised if there were differences and if there are then I'm more inclined to think it's intentional and would like to know the reason why. I'd be surprised if a company like FitEar has QC issues.

Careful now, mention objective testing methods and this thread might get moved into the Sound Science forum. rolleyes.gif
