I have a friend who has the ALO SXC for the FitEar, but it's terminated with the RSA Kobiconn-style balanced connector, so I haven't had a chance to try it out. I actually think the high extension of the 334 is fine, it's just not as present as that of the K3003.
ok Thanks for the info. I just finished reading Cnet review by Steve and I had the impression that the treble level is really good..
."Drums' impact and power trump the JH 3A's, the texture of the beats is palpable and the cymbals' shimmer sounds remarkably clear"
"I next compared the 334 with my $1,099 JH 13 custom-molded to my ears headphone, and that was a much closer contest, but the 334's clarity and brilliance shone through. The 334's stereo imaging was also more expansive than the JH 13's. The JH 13 is no slouch, and it has a warmer, richer tonal balance. The detailing is quite good, but the 334 is better."
So here I am trying to figure out if my set is defective. I am going to do this with fit ear 334 with reference to some of the phones by comparing their treble level only. (not mid or bass) PLease let me know if you think this is not right;
HD800, TH900, Ultrasone ed8/ Signature Pro, AT w1K/3K, Denon D2K-7K, Sony Ex1000, K3003i (ref & High boost level)LCD-3/ LCD-2, HD598 all has better treble extension than Fitear 334? Fitear 334 treble is on par of very similar to HD650 treble level and fitear 334 is brighter than Shure PT500/535. Pls let me know if anyone think otherwise, I find the fitear lack some serious treble extension here but I may be getting a defective set. If everyone agrees with this ranking, then I will need to adjust to the terms used here , Transparant, electstatic, clarity, brilliance = to this level of treble. I am still new to Hifi even after 20 years into it. I am learning everyday ..LOL - Thanks folks.
