I haven't written much about my tg334 but that's not a bad reflection on them. In fact, its quite the opposite. I've had zero hiss issues, transparency is off the charts and the mids are just simply fantastic. Frankly I've enjoyed them much more than anything else I've had the chance to hear. Period. For me, none of the other offerings have come close. So instead of writing about them, I've been content to just listen and enjoy
. I'm sure at some point I'll get around to a proper review, perhaps when my AS-2 finally arrives.
I've wondered if this exact thing is to blame for the thread frequently going silent for spells! Please update if/when you find a good source for the Ortofon tips. I think I'd like to try a set as well.
Really glad you liked the tips as much as me. I'm having your feelings excatly both concerning the tips and the 334's. I can honestly say that I have not enjoyed music more in my life than i do just now. Lenghty sessions is so much more comfortable than with fullsize cans, and compared to my hd650's they make up for what they lack in "space" with FUN. Amazing to put my ipod to shuffle songs and just enjoy the 334's allround qualities. I simply find it difficult to turn my rig off.
Just a thought, maybe you guys could find a way to split a packet of Ortofon tips. They have a hefty price, but do come pakced in 5 pairs of the same size, S,M or L.

I noticed that we have the same setup: classic/clas/continental. Do you really get annoying hiss on that?
Mine is close to pitch black. It is possible to tell if the amp is turned on or off, but that's just so quiet a sound that it can't be called hiss. My 334's are from the ALO batch that was in stock after a pause on September 14th.
