Looks like some TF10 parts at the back?

Yups, will try to attach this connector to TF10.

I assume the difference in physical traits of the 334 can also be found with v1 and v2 of the f111?

Yes there is a definitive click as opposed to, say, the Westone-style connectors.

that's with the matt v1 but not for the v1 glossy finish right?

There's a v1 matte? I didn't realise. I thought the TG!344 went from v1 (Gloss) to v2 (matte). Are you saying there's actually a v3 (another matte)?

sorry my mistake. Mean the matte v2 but not for the v1 glossy finish.

Both the v1 & v2 versions clicked. I still have the glossy v1 TG!334 - my sweat hasn't worn off any coatings yet so the v1's still work fine on me. Of my earphone collection, the TG!334 has stuck with me the longest - I made the mistake of selling it once and promptly bought a replacement in regret. I don't think I'd ever sell my TG!334 again. Assuming we're not talking about new ('cos now TG!334's are made-to-order like the other FitEar CIEMs), in the 2nd hand market the TG!334 are very rare. In fact it's probably easier to pick up a pair of TG!334s on HF than it is in the 2nd hand stores in Japan. If one pops up, then it's usually gone within a few hours of it's listing online. And 2nd hand TG!334s sell for the price of new.

The catch to buying new in Japan is that, as mentioned, they're pre-order but what's more is that the buyer's name is registered - one pair per person...ever.

I concur. It took me a real while to hunt down a pair here in Vietnam, and the price wasn't exactly cheap either (though I suppose it was quite a bit cheaper if we're talking in term of what you'd have to fork out to secure a new pair outside Japan). I can definitely see the reasons for the high demand though - exquisite Japanese craftsmanship, sublime sound and high resale value - heck, I bet I could pass mine to someone else local in a matter of days and still suffer little to no loss at all.

The only qualm I seem to have with them is the fit - out of all the stock tips, only the S sized ones seemed to fit my ears properly, and while they did sound good, I found out that listening while lying on my bed cut down the bass bloat by quite a bit and brought out the magical mids of the 334's. Have anyone experienced anything like this? I'm thinking of going with the JVC Spiral Dot tips since my experience seemed to mirror that of Francisk's, but would the Ortofon's be a better alternative if I want to reduce the low frequencies on these?
