Yes its maybe because of the bass. Im playing "Adagio for Trons" from Tron Legacy album and the bass is thicker and with more resonance, the decay of notes from hi-midrange to highs is a bit slow compared to the JH16s

Figured so. Same thing on the IE80s but in that case its too much so I did the tape mod to them. Also my Tralucents have a similar effect but doesn't go overboard since the dynamics are very well controlled. Just lots of presence to the bass. :)

Oh, if I tame the bass response I will EQ them a bit for less bass. But Im pretty satisfied with the TG334s where I just use no eq to my daps. I cant wait to compare them to the mids of my newly reshelled SM3 and my W4.

That is the nice thing about them. I didn't feel the need to EQ down bass either. Bass is thick yes but it didn't hurt the mids or treble. So I'd prefer it that way anyways :). It's a meatier sound.

On normal case I use eq on my jh16 to make it sound more mid-forward, but still the midrange is thin for me, coming from SM3, W4 or EX1000. So when I had the Fitears, I'm glad that I don't need to EQ them anymore. The sound from TG334s is meatier and creamier compared to the JH16s. Although in the expense of faster note decay, TG334 tend to be more musical and detailed At the same time. It doesn't bring the detail forward like the DBA02s but it is all in the layers and with pin-point accuracy. Athough the JH16 is no slouch at this area but IMO the TG334 has more resolution.

 

I am enjoying the TG334s with all the genres only less on electronic or trance music. The TG334 doesnt have the fast and clean response of the JH16, so that its more musical in a way that it retain its notes much longer and does not present analytical.

 

As of now that is my only comparison.


Thank you for the comparison. I'm quite happy with the TG!334's bass and mids. Sometimes it's so thick (depending on the recording ergo good transparency!) it just gets me going unlike any other in ear I've heard before.

Hey Guys,

Can the 334 be re-shelled? I did a search on this thread and did not find any comments on it. I wish FitEar would sell their customs outside Japan.

You probably could but you can also run into some issues concerning that. Generally speaking the actual IEM producer will have better results with tuning the IEM to fit their house sound and having a foreign vendor do this may yield different results (possibly unwanted results). I even experienced this with my reshelled TF10s. They didn't sound the same as the original TF10s IMO. So YMWV.

What Lee says makes sense. It be too big a gamble especially since there is not a company (that I know of) that does it on a regular basis.

Are there any better alternative cables for the fitear TG334? I have issues with the stock cables as they tend to be very rigid and uncomfortable to wear when used on portable.Something like the quality of the Twag or even the stock cable of most iem ( e.g. westone,jh,earsonics)

The stock cable is pretty rigid and the others I've used (ALO SXC 22 and FitEar 000) are the same... the 000 is actually worse, if we're talking about how rigid they are (even if they sound AMAZING).

No. The interior is filled with acrylic.

The ALO cable is far, far stiffer than stock, and thicker, so as such is much less comfortable and practical for up-and-about use. But the sound is definitely an improvement... It's significantly more microphonic too. If it didn't affect the sound in a noticeable way I'd sell it. But as it sits, it's only really an option for seated use (most of my use is during the work day at my desk).

Thanks guys. It is good advice.

The only problem I have with the stock cable for me is the memory of the bend around my ears. I'm used to the Miracle's cable being so good about that. The discussions some pages back have convinced me that the stock cable itself is of very good quality.

 

I got the best advice IMO regarding cables from UM H.Q. I wrote them saying that the stock cable on the Miracle was said to be the same as Westone's and would they have a recommendation for upgrading. They wrote me back and said that cables should be the last item in the chain. AMP, DAC, Files/Format, and player come first.

I have mailed Craig at Whiplash Audio, he claims he can make the TWag V2 for the fitear. I'm quite keen on checking that out.
