Similar case here.
Already listed my TG!334 and BTG Starlight in the local forums tongue.gif

a little feedback on my adventure in resistor land.

Rin Choi suggested a 100ohm resistor added. I'm such a fan of all the work done on the MRO blog, but here I'll have to disagree.

to my ears, even 30ohm lowers the trebles too much. I'm all for the taming of the bass part, but not at the price of the trebles, else the 334 loses some of what makes it good.

played with combinations of 3,5,30,100 ohm, my ideal result was 5 or 8ohm depending on the source, I liked 5ohm better on my sony but it's own output impedance is something around 3ohm so no wonder here ^_^.

with this 8ohm (on 1ohm or less sources) I find that the biggest impact is that it lowers the sub bass a good deal without yet making too much damage to the rest.  and by doing so does give a feeling of faster and tamed bass (the real purpose of all that mess).

 

I'm pretty happy with the result here, but to be absolutely honest, it's useful to me only on my sony A865 that doesn't have a negative EQ under 400hz. else I can get something very close just with EQ -3db in the bass region.

 

I've made a little attempt at calculating the maximum variation for 8ohm added from lowest and highest impedance points of the impedance graph of the 334 using simplified spells from "he who must not be named" Nwavdemort, and it gave me something like a 2.6db maximum variation. I'd say it doesn't fall too far even if I didn't graduate from magic school.

 

anyway it was a fun experiment, and the 334 is actually my only IEM to get (to my hear) any benefit from an increased impedance. most dynamic driver didn't really care (except that I had to push the volume to compensate). all other BA drivers had different reactions (logical) but always bad ones. Parterre really don't like increased output impedance!!!

 

 

 

/me iz gonna get exiled to soundzkaban science priso... section of headfi.

Hi All,

Just jointed the TG334 family smily_headphones1.gif

I wonder if there is any DIY fitear connectors (to connect to the IEM sockets) I can buy so can mod one of my cables (made for Westone's) to fit the 334? The stock cable is very well made, but I feel it's a bit too rigid, and a bit microphonic too.

Great IEMs btw, listened to it until 2am in the morning, just couldn't put it down. Sound great w iPhone 5, fantastic with HM901.

Anything else?

Hello and welcome.

 

Congrats. Am sure you will continue to enjoy you 334's.

Thanks. That's all I need for now :)  

 

Hmm, wonder how come this one cost so much more than the one for Westones :(  It's almost like 3 times as much... 

 

Found it at another site too:

Yeah, I'm sure I will. Best IEMs I've had to use directly with iPhone.

Does an impedance adapter help with any hissing problems that occur with the iphone?

It should.  I can't detect any with my 5s, although I have heard hissing on a variety of other sources.

post #3100 of 3818
But impedance adapters affect the FR too so what you may like about the 334, you may not like anymore after.
post #3101 of 3818

so what the best cable for 334? 000 or TWAG v3 8 conductor?

Best is relative my friend. Suggest you add the Alo and Toxic to your list.

 

It may be difficult to try all before you decide. Personally I enjoy my Alo as well as a friend's TWAG. I have a Toxic silver widow on order.

 

Also tralucent audio out of Hong Kong have some very nice cables. You can contact Spkrs01 (Gavin) via headfi

I'm already got Tralucent gold and UBEr cable for my 1+2, but as I saw, it cant be connected to the 334

Clearly I was referring to their cables with fitear connectors. 

 

I have not seen one yet, but a local friend has ordered one from them and expects it around Xmas.
