Lol (no offense meant), I had a good laugh over reading that. tongue.gif  Thanks for your ongoing impression!

Anyone knows what happened to the K3003 loan tour? You might wanna give these a listen sometime.

Interesting. I tried my friend's TG!334 with Complys vs my stock tips & I found that the Complys seem to absorb some detail of the higher frequencies.

Personally I've stuck to my stock tips.

The biflanges are really comfortable too. Btw where can I get more of those rubber tips?
I ordered the 000 cables too... Can't wait to make things even better! smily_headphones1.gif

Huh? Your TG!334 didn't come with rubber tips? Of not PM me. I can get in touch with Suyama & try to get some for you.

I really don't agree with this. I love electronica and listen to it a lot, and I find that the 3D holographic sound, huge details, neutrality, speed and a good bass gives a good electronic performance. maybe 334 doesn't color the sound, or give the extra fun of a bass head like jh16, but I tend to find IMO that holographic, neutral hugely detailed sound does it for me independently of music type

I love the W3s that I paid $260 for, and that's a 3-way with crossover. I'll admit that titanium is tough to machine and the market will determine if $550-650 (PriceJapan) is justified. Personally I'd like to have the 111, but don't think it will sell well at that figure and the competition is fierce. I was ready to pull the trigger on the 334 but read they're not optimal for electronica. However, I'd love to try 'em.

I thought he should give it a chance as well. He read that it's not ideal for electronica, but he's not heard it yet to justify. I listen to almost all genres with mine and I think there's nothing wrong.

The grossly detailed and 3D soundscape makes it really enjoyable when I explore my music all over again.

The TO GO! 334 sounds excellent with electronica, unless of course you want something extremely colored in the lower region. However I find there's more risk of intrusion into the midrange and getting a "one-note" bass when you go for greater levels of quantity.

 

The TO GO! 334 has a very well articulated, well extended and textured bass. Any more quantity and it simply wouldn't be as accurate. Fortunately the bass doesn't seem to have much distortion, so I imagine it would respond very well to EQing if you wanted to give it a little boost for certain tracks. The versatility and chameleon-like quality of the TO GO! 334 is a virtue at its price point I feel; there are certainly more specialized sound signatures out there, but I find they usually come at the expense of versatility. I don't want every track to sound overly bassy myself, only those tracks that call for it, which I feel the TO GO! 334 does quite well (without EQ either).

Of course I'd appreciate a demo on the tour, but that'd be all I need.... to create the 'necessity' for another $1,300 IEM!! Arrrrrr, this hobby.

Definitely good points about the bass. This IEM is definitely quite chameleon-like.... And yeah, a subtle tick up in the lowest octaves makes it very nice for electronica, industrial, etc.

What do you guys consider to be "electronica"? OK personally for -me- I find my TG!334 not so suited for, say, Kitaro, Jean Michel Jarre, and YMO - that's my classification of electronic(a). I prefer my UM Merlins for those. However, music like 50/60's Jazz, vocals, country (Anne Murray), 80's pop (e.g. say Kenny Loggins, etc.), some current songs (Lana Del Rey), the TG!334 shines.

post #477 of 4412

Electronica is way too big an umbrella term to easily define in my opinion. Sort of like 'rock.'

 

My own tastes tend to run along the lines of:

 

acid house like Phuture; early Detroit techno like Model 500; Basic Channel style dubtronica and later offshoots like Monolake; Fennesz style glitch; classic IDM like AFX, Mouse on Mars, and Boards of Canada; experimental ambient stuff like The Orb; heroin house like Deepchord and Quantec; pop ambient like Wolfgang Voigt, Thomas Fehlmann and Brock Van Wey; witch house like Balam Acab; turntablism like The Samps and DJ Koze.

 

I would consider YMO to be electro pop, though their latest reunion tour with Fennesz has some definite electronica infused into it.

 

* * * * * * *

 

Personally I find the TO GO! 334 transparent enough to handle just about any genre under the sun at lest fairly well. I don't use EQ often myself, but I think it responds well to such things if one wanted to make slight alterations for a particular track.

One thing that gets rarely mentioned in discussions about bass quantity, is people's preferred listening volume. Equal-loudness contours vary with volume, so it's entirely plausible that bassier IEMs may sound just right to low volume listeners, whereas high volume listeners may consider less bassy IEMs more accurate. "Accuracy" is actually pretty relative in this context. jm2c.

Hi AnakChan. Could you confirm that fitear cable 000 really improve the sound from stock cable?
 

post #480 of 4412

Funny that you say this as I'm getting worried about the listen volume of togo 334. I find that they perform better louder and as they are really smooth on the treble, as I turn the knob higher, the sound turns more lifelike, even more spacious, this with a lot of electronica styles. IMO 334 like to be played loud. I don't know if I'm not listen too loud as I can't have a hint of distortion or fatigue. The treble stays always smooth, no Shhhh or sibilance of any kind. (I never pass the 80% of volume on iPod classic)
