The only difference I can think of is their unit was well burnt in over the course of the demo tour, whilst with mine I burnt mine in for about 300 hrs before returning them.

 

That in part, but its more of a reading between the lines thing in comparisons against the 334 - although I could very well like them more, just got the sense they're a very technically competent but edgy listen.

While I don't agree on sibilance issues the 1Plus2s are extremely distracting to listen to. Meaning you'll have a hard time concentrating on your work and will find yourself listening to them and not focusing on work lol. So in that I'd say the 334s are the better choice.

That too, although it's sorta hard to quantify why something has that quality.

 

Years ago I had a really nice desktop setup w/ ATH L3000s.  I actually stopped using them after awhile as they became just way too distracting, they were hurting rather than helping productivity.

Usually that's due to the fun nature of the IEM. Very exciting and engaging. A big part of that is in the superb imaging.

The next time you go into one of the stores, can you try the AT CKM99 or 90PRO or either of the 1000s and tell me if you find them too sibilant with the same tracks?  I hope we can sit down for an hour or two at e-earphone on the 12th and go through a bunch of IEMs and discuss our impressions. I've been wondering why some makers seem to make IEMs that are painfully bright. I don't honestly believe that 300 hours wouldn't be entirely enough for the drivers to settle.

You got yourself a date ;-)!! & I'll bring 2xboxes of Kellogg's Guardian cereal too instead of flowers.

Seriously though, my thinking is the 300 hrs is probably more for the 6N OCC silver cables than the IEMs to settle.

Don't get me wrong, I love the 334s (and would probably love the 1plus2) - ultimately, this is a tool for me to do my work so I went with the choice I felt that would get most out of the way.

 

I actually switched back to the 001 cable from the 000 for this reason - the former seems a bit more neutral/less engrossing, if that makes any sense.

Expensive accompaniment for work and not listening pleasure!

Highly disagree.  I've been into head-fi for about 10 years now and must have bought and sold in excess of $20k in gear.  It's always been for office/work purposes - over the years my losses are probably less than $2k or so (most stuff I buy used), probably have in excess of 10,000 hours of headtime while working.  This stuff pays dividends.

 

I've had days of coding marathons with these things in my ears where just in *that day* I earned almost the cost of the 334s.  If I'm able to focus just 10% better each day and bill that out, they will have paid for themselves in under a month.  Beyond that I can resell them for a fair price so really, it's just a few days to justify their keep. (FWIW the L3000s I purchased for $1500, sold for $2000 a 1.5 years later).

Don't take me seriously mate. Whilst there is a half truth in what I said, it's not meant to be taken literally.

With so many TG!334 owners moving on to the 335DW, those seem to me like my next purchase =| which would be after a while...

Although, the C435 DOES intrigue me...

 

Another thought: Jaben is going to be SO expensive though..

You're lucky you have a Jaben to go to. I would have to travel to Japan to get mine.

=| Well, now I feel more blessed =P btw have you bought your F111 yet? biggrin.gif

I remember the price of the FitEar Private 333 at Jaben being extremely expensive.. Hope the 335DW/C435/Maybe even Monet doesn't cost as much )=
