I had the 334 for 2-3 weeks, and ended up using the stock cable most of the time over the 000 cable. The 000 cable was a definite upgrade sonically to the stock cable, but much harder to just enjoy because of it being so damned microphonic. 

 

 

 

 

you can always try Sennheiser cables, same pins.rolleyes.gif

Same here, have been using the 001 cable for awhile now, not so much for the microphonics (I always listen sitting down), but due to the stiffness it seems to cause the seal to break a little too often.  Only seems to be an issue w/ the Ortofon tips for me as I'm probably between sizes on those, but still.

 

I have a BTG starlight en route sometime soon (also ordered back in April), if it can at least split the difference sonically w/ great ergonomics I'll be in heaven.

^^ I can totally relate to that.

I am running my ToGo! 334 on a 001 balanced cable but with an adapter and pseudo-balanced out of the AK120......

 

Short of going full balanced out of the RSA Intruder.......This ROCKSwink_face.gif

Any different between black and white tips?

White tips are Ortofon....I get perfect fit with and use them with all my Universals if they fit the earpiece stems.

Edit:

Didn't answer your question. They shift the FR a little through the lessening of bass due to smaller bores. Giving more shimmer to the highs and a slightly more focused mid.

Spkrs, Isn't this the same as a regular 001 cable but with a balanced plug converted back to stereo?? So, how / why would this be (much) different than a normal 001 stereo cable & plug??

RE: balanced 334s, searching this thread for more info found AnakChan's impressions to be somewhat muted after balancing the 000 cable:

"It is quite a bit of money spent to just squeeze out that little bit of performance. Although I do use my 000 balanced quite a bit, I find myself using the standard SE cable in equal amount of time too... Any sonic loss from balanced to SE is, to my ears, minor and easily forgotten."

 

So it's interesting to note this is the balanced 000 vs. stock 001... to my ears there's a pretty nice change in sound SE to SE between these cables, so I dunno confused_face.gif

 

Gavin, I appreciate your enthusiasm, it even caused me to go off on a tangent and consider purchasing an International in the classifieds and then an RSA connector to reterminate my incoming BTG starlight.  Just looking for more impressions on this, it's a lot of coin of AnakChan says.  Who knows, perhaps that money would be better spent purchasing the 1+2s wink.gif

while purchasing the 334 from price japan, do they come with any stock cable, or does the cable need to be purchased separate in addition to the iem?

was not sure what comes in the package if you just buy the iem and no optional cables..

thanks.

Answer: TG334's come with the (001) cable, also Pelican case, eartips, cleaning brush, and soft bag.

I'm selling the 000 cables and the TG334s in the For Sale forums.  My ears are aching after too much IEM use.  

 

My experience was that the 000 cable had sonic improvements but it is very stiff and microphonic.  I could cope with it because I have used IEMs for such a long time and I can avoid bumping the cables.  Shocked anyone would charge $445 for them.  I guess that's the price of a small improvement on $1300 headphones in this hobby.

 

I have had the 334s twice now.  I don't know if the soft pouch always comes with the headphone.  Pretty lousy way to protect the IEM but the Pelican case is really big.

Sennheiser cables such as 535 suitable for 334?
