Shotgune Shane was telling us about another company close to producing a cable(s) too. I wonder how that is coming along?

As far as I know, the BTG Audio FitEar SPC cable is due out sometime this month.

Very interesting and seemingly detailed interview with Suyama; I'm sure I missed a lot of stuff by doing Google Translate, so if anyone could help translate, it'd be great --- thanks!

I'll ask Tom. He's Asian, so he must speak Japanese.

I have a question, why pay $1350 for these universals when for a few hundred more you can get the fully custom version of these IEMs that would probably have a better seal? I don't understand the logic??

Sasaki in his review has claimed that the universal version is clearer than his custom version, how is that possible? Also another member on this forum has the JH13 Pro in custom format, but purchased the fitear in a universal format.... Is there something better about the cheaper universal version that I'm missing?

If you have a choice for the universal togo 334 or the custom MH334 for the same price, which would you choose and why? I would think the answer should be the custom, but I am seeing a lot of people who can afford the custom go for the universal, why?

Not only that. You have to get customs reshelled over time. Your ear canals change as you get older. I'm 21 so I expect mine to change within 3 to 4 years. I don't want to get expensive customs if they'll lose their fit over time.

Resale value is the biggest one. Plus the potential for fit issues. Most people don't get that "one hit wonder" phenomena and have to get several refits before the Custom fits right. That takes patience and can be quite annoying. Also as temp said your ear canals can change enough so to ruin the fit on the IEMs. This can be from loosing or gaining weight, etc.

 

The 334s are probably clearer than the universals because Sasaki tuned them that way. Remember these are Ba and can be manually tuned. Actually the same goes for dynamics to an extent with BA being more precise (just not as good at the full range in comparison to dynamics).

That is one of the reasons why I bought the TG!334 is resale value. Having said that, it's sounded better than my Unique Melody Merlins or SE530x8 CIEMs I can't see myself parting from it. I think I'm such a believer of FitEar now that I'm tempted to sell my UM CIEMs & use the funds to invest into the FitEar Monet or MH335DW CIEMs.

 

A note about the TG!334 vs the MH334. I have to admit that I don't necessarily agree with Sasaki-san that the TG1334 is clearer than the MH334 - and this is not a universal statement...this is only for -my- ears. The treble on the MH334 is not as extended but its imaging is even slightly better than the TG!334. I think the treble difference is the TG!334's use of the titanium tubes. However, I'm not certain if the MH334's improvement of imaging over the TG!334 is worth $400 price difference.

How about the MH335?

The non-DW? Never tried them. But I seem to have forgotten the DW sound too. So I really need to listen to them again before deciding.

I am agreed with Anakchan , why I bought universal. Fit ear 334 to go .
The Titanium tube can not be use in fit ear custom mh 334 or mh 335.

Only one iem can challenge my fit ear 334 is the big brother fit ear mh 335 .

I am waiting one day Suyama San will launching his new fit ear 335 universal iem .

There's a non-DW 335 offered to music professionals, but not to consumers. It also doesn't bear the "MH" moniker, I think.

Besides re-sale value......for those of us who do not live in Japan........FitEar will not sell to customers outside of Japan. Really no choice as of now for FitEat products other than 334 or 111 for someone who cannot be in Japan to buy. I'm not sure how to use a buying service for customs or if its even possible?

 

And I'll just add that the 334 is a great IEM. Without fail, every-time I listen to them, I think 'wow these are great' about 10 times an hour LOL
