However original dx100 has twice output votage as hdp r10. 

DX100 has 2 cells in series and r10 has 2 cells in parallel. Total energy is the same.

I was thinking of the Altmann Tera player, but cant sum up to its costs yet...Currently I end listening to my TG!334 straight off my iphone4 as I find it most accessable and comfortable to use for longer hours, and the TG!334 does decently through the iphone4. Has anyone got the chance to listen to the TG!334 on a DX100 and the AK120, to compare the two in terms of sound quality? 

 

Be sure to read up on the 334 pairing with the Tera player. I think there is bass roll off so not sure if that will be to your liking or not.

Thanks..just read that bit. Maybe not the Tera player then , but Im curious to try the AK120.

For total portability and ease of use, highly recommend AK120 + TG!334

Thanks akhyar !..How long does a single charge hold on the AK120?

post #2946 of 3786
Agreed that for pocketability and usability ak120 is the best. A single charge gives me 12+ hrs (non continuous) with the tg334 at volume 33.

Thanks kkcc !..Ive read elsewhere, that the bass of the AK120, being on the lesser side, helps taming the mid-bass of the tg334 ..how do you find it ?

Still too much and a bit bloated for my taste on 001 cable.  Using Twag v3 does the trick for me.

post #2950 of 3786
I've never tried the TWag cable, but swapping the 001 to BTG Starlight managed to tame down a bit of the midbass

any of you guys tried the other fitear such as the 111 and parterre? how would they compare against the 334.

 

also how do they pair with the colorfly c3?

I did audition the normal Paterre and the "white" prototype Parterre at last weekend's Mook festival. My first impression is that they never wow me. Maybe I'm just too pampered with the sounds of 334. The Parterre just sound flat, the only thing that sounds right maybe their neutral mids which sound life-like, unlike the slightly coloured mids of 334. Considering that the retail price if 334 is only S$200 more than a Parterre, I also did not find it value for money, IMHO that is.

I'm so jealous, why doesn't sydney have these festivals? so the parterre ain't that great

I actually preferred Parterre's tuning better. Tg334's midbass hump and treble spike are only "fixed" to my liking with silver cables, while Parterre just sounded right from the get go. But Parterre is definitely not fun or wow sounding. Personally I would have picked the Parterre had it been available when I got the 334 last year. I suspect taming the midbass and treble are the tuning objectives of suyama san for the Parterre.

you can't get everybody to agree on what To Go! they prefer, that was the point of making several models, they do sound different.

again if you like big round bass and more relaxed high mids, 334 will technically satisfy you very much about everything else as it is the most detailed/transparent one. (somewhat electrically flat + a lot of bass)

if you look for the most even sounding IEM or you really dislike bass boosts, you'll get the f111 as it's really only missing a little in the sub bass region, else everything is very even sounding. (somewhat compensated flat + just enough bass boost)

and to my ears, the parterre was the one with the most energy on impacts, with bass sounding faster/more controlled than 334 but more present than f111.(more unique signature, less smooth)

 

all have a real good imaging and cool soundstage, not the same but all are really fun to listen to in that respect.

 

if the bass on the 334 was a little bit tighter(and maybe 2db lower), I would say it is the best IEM I've ever heard.  "alas" I only believe it is the best universal I have ever heard ^_^.  but really those bass will have a love/hate effect on people.
