I ordered the cable from BTG Audio webstore but haven't received mine.

You can search this forum or Google for the reviews on BTG cable coz IIRC, other than Fitear only BTG used the overmold connection for Fitear universal.

Thanks for sharing the info. Will have a look and consider having an extra cable.

isolation on ortofon tips are very good. I had good isolation with double flange stock tips and these are a bit better it seems.

Sharing a thought: wonder how the fitear 334 would stack against the incoming shure se846?

The ALO SXC cable for the TG!334 also uses overmolded connectors, although those are a pain to deal with in my experience. They sounded good though.

How could one even speculate on an unknown like that?

A few tips regarding Ortofon tips...bigsmile_face.gif

 

Give them a few days...they need to soften up or to accelerate the process tip roll them literally between thumb and fore finger.......also allow them some body heat before they really perform at optimum and it would help that you have a little natural grime on them.

I would just not wipe for a few days so natural body oils build up on them.....

 

Having said that I have seen people spit/lick tips.....arghhhh

Thanks for the tips. All of a sudden I am finding that I can't even insert the smallest tip size into my ear canal. Something about these ortofon tips made the walls of my ear canal extremely dry that it feels as though they are shrunken. confused.gif
Hoping that tip rolling will help with this.

Thanks for all the tips and advice on the ear tips.  I will have to drop by Stereo or Jaben over the weekend to see what's available.

Sorry to burst your bubble but there are not many types of tips in Stereo or Jaben, except maybe Comply T400/500 or Shure and Westone tips which are not compatible with FitEars.
Definitely no Ortofon, Sony Hybrid, Heir, V-Moda tips, etc that can be used on FitEars
You will be better off buying online.

Thanks again akhyar for your advice.  Any sites that you would recommend for me to find those please.
