I remember one time when I was walking along the sidewalk and I didn't notice the guy on the street pounding away with the Jackhammer! I was quite surprised by this and only then I noticed that I could hear the jackhammer going while my music was playing but it was very much in the background.
The Fitear are only semi-hollow and I think it may be providing better isolation vs other customs.
Having said all that, the Olives are my favorite tips for compatible universals, it does a very good job blocking noise and are better than any Demo customs I have tried.


Thanks for that info! I was beginning to think that Shure Olives isolate better than everything else. I wonder if anyone compared it to other customs. wink_face.gif

Personally don't quite like Shure olives. They don't seem to fit well in my ears, they just keep falling out. I tried compressing them and putting it into my ears, but no help :(

What tip do you use then? O.o

The Westone silicon tips provided. But I'm thinking of getting some Shure grey flex, because the Westone tips sounds kinda dark which I don't quite like.

Shure silicones are something like the Olives IIRC. Try the Earsonics bi-flanges?

Did you try them reversed? They fit my ears much more securely that way.

O_O I see, never tried them in that way.

Hmm, don't like bi-flanges, they hurt as much as triple flanges but don't even fit my ears which triple at least does.

How does the triple flanges fit but bi-flanges don't? Is it too small?

I'm not too sure, I try inserting it deep but it tends to drop out, whereas triple-flanges tend to stay due to their longer tip.

Your ears are too big. I think?

I wonder, but usually it seems that my ear canal diameter is small, but deep.

if this universial fit version actually sounds like the custom mh334, it may well be a potential AKG K3003 killer. Since I compare both in E-earphone in Tokyo(akihabara) when i first got my MH334 during christmas, it just perform a bit better than the k3003 is bass and vocal, and having a much larger soundstage, if you care about sound stage in iem. its 4 driver with 2 mid range driver actually give it a big advantage when you compare the mh334 to the k3003 it like having a turvo boost on the midrange of the mh334. I am so looking forward to try this universial fit version of the mh334, since i am currenly studying in UK....

It's said that the TOGO! 334 has better clarity than the custom version, probably due to the titanium sound bore and the shorter length --- you can read Sasaki's impressions. They're also getting Joker one, so he'll be coming out with a review, sometime in the future.

Well, I'm interested in the TOGO! 334 myself and since I'm quite a bit of a soundstage junkie, I have to say some of the things you say don't really go together in my book. The number of drivers has absolutely nothing to do with soundstage size imo, my 4 driver W4 have smaller stage than my single driver FI-BA-SS and the 3x2 driver JH13 demo I auditioned sounded even slightly more intimate than the W4. Plus, a boosted midrange usually means that the vocals are more in-your-face, conveying a sense of closeness and intimacy that's more in line with the spatial dimensions of a small club or studio, rather than a concert hall or an open-air performance.

 

Of course ymmv and perception of soundstage is probably not comparable among listeners. But as a dedicated concert-goer, my standard has to be the real live experience and judging by that, large venues usually translate into more distant vocals and less instrument separation and smaller venues into more intimate vocals and better separation.

 

In our ongoing hunt for the better and better, we're understandably tempted to declare our latest (and most often priciest) purchase an upgrade in every aspect, even though some of these variables are actually pretty diametrical in real-life conditions.
