AnakChan  please do contact Suyama-san and let us know? I for one, and am sure I'm not alone, would greatly appreciate knowing if there is a diff and what the differences might be.

Saraguie if I remember correctly your pair was a bit hot up top. I mean in no way rolled off to my ears. If anything the treble was just a little bit much so I won't be surprised if you have a good pair. That is even in comparison to my MDR-7550s which also have a good top end. I think those comply tips you are using though is killing the treble for you and silicone will add more treble up top :).

I'd say:

Qu'est-ce que, ce merde la?!?

But that's actually kind of interesting. Wonder how it sounds on a normal line out.

Or maybe FitEar legitimately loves the DAP, ever thought about that?

Honestly I think it's more so due to potential sales. Since this seems to be a hit in Japan why not work around the flaw to appease potential customers? Let's be honest sales are what's gonna drive these types of things instead of infatuation. :P

Yes, let's be honest, DAPs like AK100 will never hit the market big; yet FitEar is going go and spend more resource to tweak their product exclusively for it?

Yeah it is strong logic. Because people who are considering such a product are also very likely to be in the market for a high end IEM. Plus this is all in Japan, the marketing is a great idea from a business standpoint. Now it may not become a mainstream product like Apple but that is not the point. These products are very much boutique items catered for the audiophile market & at that they both hit a sweet spot.

Pretty flawed to me. So what other IEMs are people going to pair AK100 other then tweaked FitEar 111? Just 111? How is this going to sell? Care to explain? Surely majority of audiophiles in Japan knows how to read ohm chart.

You're not getting the point. This IEM is being made to accommodate for that flaw. So in that it makes it a viable option and potential sales. Even Heir Audio is doing this now. Many people are interested in this DAP but as you said the 22 ohms is a turn off. But at least from comments I've gathered the product seems to be a hit in Japan regardless of the flaw. Could be awareness just isn't that great yet.

Two out of how many companies, come again?

 

Not even sure if I have faith in the market anymore. I'd rather buy 1000 Sansa Clips than AK100.

Still it's a boutique market and there is money to be made in it. The comparisons you are making is like it's a mainstream product and it is not. There is still money to be made in it however. Otherwise they wouldn't have made the move. Heck none of these vendors would be selling products if that was the case.

 

I agree with you on the last sentence. I see no reason to buy the player either. Covering up for a flaw is a smart move if it can grab sales but I still see the player as flawed and I'd rather not spend money on a product to work around another products flaws. Especially if it's a costly one lol. Not sure about buying 1000 clips. Just spend that on a DX100 :P.

Which just makes me believe more that FitEar just likes AK100 as a product. Yes, don't have unlimited budget but just can't see them tweaking their product for another DAP unless they really like it.

It complements with 334 very well, although I find that 111 has more pickier fitting (oh the irony, it's called FitEar)

Really? Those tips makes my ear itch like crazy haha. The vacuum seal on 111 is pretty crazy for me. Wore it couple of hours while studying at library, end of the day it was as if I my ear canals has been stretched permanently.
