334 & 111, stretching our ear canals bigger since 2012. I usually try to stick with stock tips unless they are terrible quality, and lack of tips in my inventory is another reason. I have countless Sony Hybrids but doesn't seem to agree with my ears. Out of curiosity what tips are you using now?

I think those comply tips you are using though is killing the treble for you and silicone will add more treble up top :).

I've gone to UE silicone tips on Milarepa's suggestion. The 'fit' (to quote my friend Bokyung) oh the irony is great and gone is the dulling of sound.

 

I'm not sure if I have a late or early 334, mine shipped Sept. 9th. I just know they are incredible! It will be interesting to hear from AnakChan what Suyama-san answers.

Complys :) They've been a big help.

So now when you demo my Tralucents again be sure to use those silicone as I bet you the treble was being dulled and bass emphasized. very_evil_smiley.gif

 

To be honest I went through the same thing with complys. Initially I really didn't know any better myself and liked them for the comfy fit. But they wear out too fast and I don't have stock in the company. tongue.gif  But what really did it was breaking my IE8s when removing a tip lol that was the last straw. But also comparing them side by side with a good pair of Silicone tips I very much noticed the treble sparkle being muffled along with the bass bleeding into the mids... frown.gif

Hmm, will have to try both. I know I used to like Comply, not sure what happened. Probably go too lazy to order some.

 

Are those UE tip same material as the double-flange tips that comes with 334?

 

 

 

@ Lee

 

Did you get 334?

No I demoed Saraguie's pair. Would have to spend more time with them to come to a fair conclusion. Maybe a friend will let me borrow them for a few weeks. bigsmile_face.gif

We'll have to see as also the Sennheiser IE800 is out and that is very much temping me as well. But I can clearly say I do prefer the 334 over the AKG3003s even just with that short amount of time listening to them. Mids are quite nice, treble has energy IMO and not rolled off like some say (could very well be discrepancies in quality control) and bass is very thick and solid. I like it. Overall the sound stage is decent. Can't say large but a very compact sound but at the same time very enjoyable. I guess I'd say the sound stage is focused more on depth than width. Do any of you agree on that?

I agree, it's compact. I kinda like it that way, IE80 and EX1000 has wide sound stage but I find  them sometimes too "dilated".

 

Seems that we run into each other a lot, first IE80 thread, now 334.

The material is definitely not the same as the double flange or any of the other tips that come stock. Itchy happened to me too on the doubles and with the singles I could not get a good fit/seal.

Hey man, that would be great.  This way you AND I would both have a pair are the same time and we could A/B them atsmile.gif

For me EX1000 a bit too wide (felt thin). I think the tips are what really did it though as on my MDR-7550 I hate using Hyrbid tips. I use V-moda bass tips (same I used on FX700) and I get a fuller more dynamic sound stage instead of a compressed and artificial sound. I don't mind compact myself but I expect there to be really good depth or in other words the presentation stretches from down and up. I think that may be a little different from depth though but I felt the 334 had that as well. When I interpret depth it's when you can go deep into the recording. Generally speaking I like a combination of both width and depth. Too much width makes it where the sound lacks depth and just sounds off to my ears then lol. I had that issue on the O2 amp.

So is it similar to the white tips that comes with Westone IEMs? I've been trying to find similar tips for my 334 but no dice.

Similar to me with my EX1000 and IE80. I couldn't get "details" with IE80 and EX1000. They are fun IEMs but was looking for something with more details. They are wide, but just didn't have the micro-details I was looking for if that makes any sense.

 

I find that BA does better job with micro-details than dynamics in general. Surprisingly 334 had wide range for BA IEM while keeping things transparent. Although I consider 111 to be more neutral but lacks in the sound-stage department.

Not quite......FWIR the Westones were a little harder. It seems they are thinner as well especially when you see them next to the great big honking nozzle of the 334's shell LOL  Hey, it's $5.........try it what've you got to loose?  For size, I would you pick what you've used in other tips. Mediums seem to be good for me.
