However i am sorry i am going of topic a bit.
I'm sorry but allow me to be sceptical of those people who have received review samples of the 3.Ai & 4.A1 from the manufacturer, most of whom are inexperienced, BTW, or not really experienced enough, even if they may seem to be by using fancy audio terms they simply learned from these very forums but have really no clue what they really mean.
And forgive me if I take the words of these manufacturers with a huge grain of salt -- after all, manufacturers will say anything to make people believe their products are the best around. Already the same manufacturer (from Heir) wrote a post claiming he'd received an email from someone who had stated the 4.A was better than several high-end full-sized headphones. If that's not blatant advertising, I don't know what is:

So, I find myself with a bunch of high-end gear like Beyer T1s, Ultrasone 8s, Grado GS1000s, Westone 3/4, ACS T1, Shure 535 and loads more. However, despite all that great gear, I have never had anything that made me say "Wow, just wow". But, your 4.A did and does. The sound is just amazing. Detailed, punchy, warm yet crisp - it ticks all the sound boxes and does so in a way that is almost magical - Wizard, indeed.
Truly great product and a work of art. The craftsmanship is superlative and the IEMs are just jewels."
And now this sonic quality can be had without ear mold impressions, without the fees associated with ear mold impressions, and without shipping ear mold impressions! All buttoned up and sealed with the "Burl of Burls," which is Heir Audio's calling card.

I'm just very glad we don't have a FitEar rep posting all over the place—most manufacturers don't do that, either, or are simply not allowed to do so, and quite rightly so— telling people why the TG 334 & TG 111 are the best things since sliced bread.
We already have plenty of shills on head-fi, and people getting free samples or large discounts in exchange for so-called reviews. Several of these people do NOT disclose how they got said pieces of gear they 'review' / talk about. Some of these people even trade or sell these items which goes against HF rules!
