Anyone have any impressions with the fitear 334 with this setup? 

 

My ideal sound signature would be close to what I find with the HE-500s.

 

Thanks!

 

I've yet to try it with the CLAS-dB but I've used it with iPod Classic-CLAS-RXMk-3 and from what I hear, I can say there is a hiss in the background, but other than that the FitEar sounds great.

Has anyone ever directly compare the TG334 to the Heir Audio 8.A, that can tell me how they sound against each other? popcorn.gif

I should have my 8As next month sometime and Saraguie and I will meet up to compare my new 1Plus2 and his 334s. I'll try and compare my Heir 8As as well to his 334s if that will help you :).

Thank you! That will be great for me if that happens before the current Heir Audio promo on the 8.A ends, but it's still great if it doesn't! smile.gif

The precision of these tubes is really something else.

Well guys, my 000 is just in. There seems to be two differing views here on the alo vs the 000, and I figured I would let you know to wich camp I belong. I have spent the last 3 hours testing it against the Alo sxc with a few carefully selected tracks, all very good productions, with quite differing sonic qualities excelling.The following statments and conclusions are mine only, and I do not claim to hold anything but my own view of these two cables.

 

The setup used is my classic/whiplash twag v2 lod/clas/alo sxc 22/continental v2.

Tracks used: Ani DiFranco "J", Nils Petter Molvær "Mercury Heart", Black Keys "Gold on the ceiling", Bon Iver "Flume" & "Calgary" and Johnny Cash "T for Texas".

 

Firstly, the difference between the cables are, to quote cn11, "not subtle". The Alo is alot more crisp and bright to me, and I feel it's force is found in it's impact, instrument separation and treble. The 000 is far darker, and at the same time gets more coherent and fluid in the dynamic department, more laid back and less sparkle. (in a kinda w4 fashion as mentioned earlier in the thread.)

 

So for the actual impressions regarding the music. On a well produced "dirty" rock track like "Gold on the ceiling" the presentation of the Alo is in the better end of the equation, the punch and sparkle suits the music imo. On Molvær's (great Norwegian trumpet player who often has a electronic fusion thing going) "Mercury Heart" the Alo once again comes to shine. This recording presents the trumpet very close to the ear, and the treble beats the need for space on this track.

 

"Need for space" you say? (man, I'm talking to myself again, better not tell the doctor about this 440 dollar cable purchase)

Yes, "space", "big soundstage", "warm delicious fullness" and "3D effect" are words that springs to my mind when the 000 is to be described. When I hit "J" I started to warm to the 000. When I hit "Flume" and "Calgary", my jaw dropped. These tracks are among a few that I have found hard to enjoy on the 334's due to their need for a huge soundstage. On the same setup, on my hd650's these tracks are crazy good, on my W4's I find them boring. Not so anymore with the 000! The ebow on "Flume" flows way wider than with the Alo. The depth is truly sick for an IEM here imo. The 650's will gather even more dust now.... On my selected Johnny Cash track (unearthed vol.2) "T for texas" the differences between the cables are so stricking that I can only explain them as such: dry/wet. I like to swim!

 

So, conclusion-time:

Do I mind missing a bit of sparkle and articulation in my Black Keys? Well, yes. But do I miss the space needed to enjoy the likes of Bon Iver more? YES. Do I like Cash sound warm and living, or stone cold like in real life? Warm and living I say. To me I would compare the difference to prefering a tube sound or a solid state sound. Both have their charm, it's about preference. I play my guitar on a Mesa Boogie Mark IV, I run my 334's on the Continental, I'm a tube kind of guy. Alo cable anyone?

milarepa-

 

How do you find the difference between the stock cable and 000? To me, there didn't seem to be much at all. 

post #1675 of 4412

I agree to everything milarepa's view on the cable differences..

 

I thought the ALO sound a bit brighter with more splash on the highs and bass because they are more nearer to the listener while the 000 gives you the whole picture..

like you're sitting:

 

ALO = 2nd or 3rd row

 

000 =  6th-8th row

Hey guys, How would these compare to headphones like the T1, hd650, hd800 in terms of sound?

Dunno about T1 nor HD650 but definitely not HD800.

At least to me, the TG!334 has a warm rich sound with a somewhat neutral lower treble, but a little on the high treble there is this little peak. To my ears, in a very very very poor comparison, it would personally remind me more of the Stax SR-007A but a much more closed soundstage.

So you also get that slight peak in the treble on the 334s? I thought it was just me. It's just a little spicy but still very much listenable :). Definitely a warm presentation as well IMO :)

I see, trying to decide whether I should make the high financial jump into headphones or iems, seeing as I can't get a chance to audition these it's a blind jump
