If you are actually in Japan they are $11. If not the forwarding service to the US, etc. will add almost as much as the eartips....ask me how I know..lol.

 

The US Ebay seller is the best deal ATM ($21).

Haha. Okay. You would know more regarding this matter. =]

 

I paid 23 or something I think. Shipped quite fast though.

They refer to it's diffusive capability and the idea probably came from room treatment diffusers as Francisk pointed out.

Lucky there's been more than one description then, if not I wouldn't have bought these to try.

This is the sound emitting from the spiral dot tips.  Don't argue, it's all very scientific.  BTW, I bought some to try!!

Dot schmots, innie~outie, horn~bell, inner ear past 4th bend or 1/16th of an inch inserted.........I really don't care. If they work I'm happy. I still don't fully understand the crossovers in the 334 but I don't need to as I do know they are great sounding. IMO (Rudi is smart he ends every email that way)

I agree!  I probably have 12 different types of tips from experimenting.  If they work, so be it!  :bigsmile_face:

Don't forget to add IMO or there could be a 10 pages argument about how many different tips one needs to be sure  :wink_face:

 

Just kidding........ on this thread we, here a grown ups and show restraint as compared to a A&K thread as an example.

Well...... of course we are, since we are brilliant enough to have FT!334s! :beerchug:

Used the Spiral dot tips today for 1 hour and only for blues. The SQ quality may change so these are only first impressions:

 

I had been using Ortofon copies and found these to be best until now.

First to note is, the Ortofon knockoffs give the best isolation with a good SQ I have tried since owning these, which is almost 2 years and 6-8 different types of tips.

 

Today isolation is the only characteristic that the Ortofon's have over the JVC's. The sound was clearer, instruments more separated, and more clean bass.

It as if a veil was lifted using them vs. what I was used to. The big bummer for me, is isolation is so important. I use the 334s out in public not at home. The two most often places I use them at are while watching my son's karate class where there is a lot of yelling and grunting going on (its a big class) and on a airplane where there is jet engine noise.

 

I think comply makes something that increase isolation but does not interfere with SQ and insertion depth?  Also I wish they went in a little further into my canal too.

 

I will give them a good listening too with a variety of musical genres and play around with positions both in my ear and cable bending to see if I can increase the isolation.

 

So far, if isolation is not a major concern, these are hands down the best for comfort and SQ.

You might want to try inserting the Spiral Dot tips a few mm past the first bend to get a better isolation. Be aware that insertion depth after that sweet spot will destroy the SQ

i solve the isolation problem with this  http://www.head-fi.org/t/597146/fitear-to-go-universal-series-suyamas-custom-iem-made-universal/3720#post_10823221

 

Yes you cant insert the JVC too deep into ear canal will mess up the sound. THats why some JVC user got worst result.
