nope, I really don't know much about dacs. to me they all sound "almost" the same (usb dacs). so I only really try and read about amps instead.

Sounds like DragonFly.   I guess Microstreamer has the same qualities.  The bass seams to be pretty good on the DragonFly however.  Although, I've heard that the streamer provides more textures in the sound compared to DragonFly which smooths out the details.

 

How does Leckerton and Objective Combo compare?  I can put up with 1x gain on it, but I am looking for something even better.  I'm curious how transparent TG can get.  I have doubts that Leckerton is better.

 

Does anybody have any high-end dacs they tried out with?  Burson, Beta22, Benchmark, and etc..?  I know the power on these is over kill, but I'm wondering how this headphones scaled when going higher end.

Right now I'm using it with a Concero HP, which is probably the highest end portable USB dac/amp and it is quite fantastic. I haven't tried any desktop systems, but it's a very solid leap over the dragonfly, meridian explorer, and microstreamer (as it should be for the price/size).

I think there has been a few reviews regarding this cable for Fitears. 

 

On the whole, what I remember is that it's the cheapest, but definitely better sound quality and especially ergonomics wise, upgrade you can get for Fitears.

Yep. I concur. I have it and it is prob the best value cables you can get, ergonics are great too.

Had it on my set when I owned it. Agree with other comments- really was a nice improvement in comfort, and there was a nice little kick in spaciousness/detail/overall sound quality as well. Can't go wrong for the money. I just wish BTG had access to Shure connectors for my current SE846, I'd get one for this IEM in a heartbeat too.

Shure connectors are available: LINK

 

Have you asked BTG if they can work with customer (you) supplied connectors?

Thanks for the info. I will pass it along to Brian @ BTG and see if they can work with those connectors. Funny that distribution is out of Guangzhou China, as I was just in that city about 3 weeks ago! If I'd have known, I possibly could have arranged a pick up on some of the connectors!

how are the fitear female pins, are they tight? and do they get worn if you remove and reinstall cables? or they are much like every other removeable cable iem

It is one of the best (C)IEM connectors made. It's used by the Japanese Police for communications gear according to FitEar. The jack connection is literally spring loaded to maintain positive pressure on the pins. It is very robust and should stay that way indefinately.

Yeah that snap into place feeling of the Fitear IEMs is really wonderful. I miss that about my old pair. Sort of like the thunk of a german car door closing. Also, those pins are thick enough that you don't have to worry about bending like the standard JH/Westone type CIEM pin. Definitely lends a premium feel to them.
