334 is one of my most sensitive IEMs and I believe there might be some stray current at the phone out of your iphone.  You should try other sources and phone outs of your laptop etc to confirm if there is any crackle with other devices.  I tried plugging into an iphone 5 just now and that is some slight crackle but not sure what you meant by 'extended".

I can hear some crackles when plugging to iP5.

While I read that the Twag v3 is very good, the price is out of my league (for a cable), hence I ordered the BTG cable

 

akhyar thanks for the sharing.  I managed to try the 1plus2 (impression at the 1plus2 thread) and can imagine the ASG2's sound better.  If the ASG2 is on the other spectrum of sound signature then definitely it won't be for me as I upgraded the cable to enhance 334's soundstage and treble.  A more rolled off treble and more bloated mid bass is probably not what I'm looking for.  I actually find the 1plus2 fitting very nice as it is smaller and ligher than the 334.

 

can't wait for hear your impression with the BTG.  I take it as the Starlight?  I might also be looking for one if I want to get a balanced cable at some point.

I had also a demo of the Parterre.  While I haven't heard the Kaede gathering from what I read the "out of head" presentation won't be the same.  Using other semi-open iem as reference, the "out-of-head" experience is mainly attributed to the open design.  With the Parterre as closed design, I would put it as "out-of-head" in the way an open design would be.  I think it is in comparison to the FT334, the Parterre provide more distance for the mids than the quite intimate 334 - you feel the piano, the vocal, etc are a bit farther away from you than FT334.  Both FItears' imaging is excellent and convey a real sense of instrument layering and in that, the Parterre present a farther stage (mainly for mids) than the FT334 while I actually felt FT334 has a wider stage.  Hope it make sense and I've put a more detailed impression over on the Parterre thread.

That's interesting, because the 334 is actually bassier than the asg-2 when the bass port is closed. The asg-2 Also has the more present and extended treble.

It could be the tip selection as I was using the double flange tips when auditioning the ASG-2. As I only had about 15 mins max on the G-2, I might not have a proper sealed also. As for the 1p2, I did have problem with the insertion and Cravens was more than helpful in giving me some pointers on wearing and chosing the right tips. I did find the treble on the 1p2 is better than the 334 and G-2. It has an airy and entended sound, without sounding sibilant or brittle. But, the bass was just not there. I might change my opinions if I have more time with them as I was struggling with the fitting

Yeah, the 1P2's bass will be quite dependent on fit, because it's pretty borderline bass-light. There's enough of it, so to speak.

I'm making a trip to Jaben one of these evenings. Let me know if you want to catch up or try the 1Plus2 again. I find the 334 bass a little overpowering on some tracks.

I think one of the nice qualities I liked for the 1p2 is the bass is not as "omni present" as the 334.  It doesn't lack in quantity or quality when the track calls for it.  It is very well controlled (especially for a dynamic driver) and don't suffer from extended decay or interference.  All bass notes are delivered with sharp attack.  This is more apparent with classical or jazz tracks more so than say an hip-hop or pop rock tracks that actually benefit from the longer decay for a more boomy grovy subbass/bassline.

 

For me I do think 334 has the right balance for the widest array of genres but the 1p2 (or G-2) would definitely be able to sound better on many tracks.

Agree with what you said above generally speaking. Mostly on your first paragraph.

That said, I think the stock silver of 1Plus2 would exhibit slightly more bass than the current silver gold. If I could take the bass quantity from the stock silver to the gold silver upgrade, I'd be pretty happy.

Borderline bass light? Lol.

Compared to the G2 and 334. It just has enough, IMO.

If you ever come to Atlanta, make plans to hear the Tera>Pico Slim>1+2.  The TG334 has the max amount for me.

I agree. I may be in ATL sometime next summer for rotations.

Shane, since you own both the 334 and 1+2, can you let me know what type of music you prefer on which IEM? Eke, would also appreciate your views with your recent comparison of the 334 against the hybrids (G-2. 1+2, RDB+). I would very much like to demo the G-2 but it wasn't available in Hong Kong.
