I didn't try the stock cable but Jumped straight to the ALO balanced cable as soon as I had them.. on the ALO cable, it shows how deep and how tall the soundstage is and everything is more upfront but not obtrusive.. if you happen to come from IE8s, fx700, ex1000 ... with the ALo cables, yes they would still sound pretty congested..
000 cables, if you want more soundstage.. and for me (note: this just my subjective OWN opinion) the tg334 running on the hdp-R10 dx100, the soundstage is very, very close to the dynamic drivers mentioned above (those are open IEMS, the tg334 we know isn't) and i know what congested or claustrophic soundstage is if you look in my sig... the layering is much much better for me on the 000 cables than ALO, cymbals are airier.. the 000 cables sound more coherent but you get to picture the distances between the instruments, some instruments even sound farther than the other.. the SS has more depth..
I would say that their soundstage presentation is very identical to the SM3v2.. but not SURROUND SOUNDSTAGE like what the sm3 does, like on the SM3, you hear the note from its starting point
til its very last sound or decay, i didn't hear this on the w4 but only on sm3 and now with tg334 and obviously the sm3 has larger SS than w4.. the 000 cables sounds more distant, as to say laidback compared to ALO..
so in a nutshell how do the TG334 w/ 000 cables really sound to me?
put the W4's presentation on the SM3's soundstage and make it more expansive and deep on the front, taller, wider, deep.. the vocals are not as forward like on the SM3 but very much like on the W4, slightly forward but never obtrusive (ALO cable) and still not as forward as on the W4 (000 cable) <---- the vocals aren't really pulled back but the bigger soundstage make it seem pulled back even more but really isn't pulled back
remember how the bass drums sound on the W4? add more transparency and distance and it sounds more rounded on the tg334 with spaces on each drum from left going to right (track: Incubus' Are you in: and DT's The Count of tuscany)
dissect the W4 (like what Iron Man did on Iron Man 2 when he studied the picture frame), put more spaces from lows - mids - highs
this may seem exaggerated but I
hope this helps
