I built some ed-based iems before so it took me no time to spot the familiarities.
another shortcoming of the tg334 is their bassy nature. coming out of my iqube v2 the bass was just next to overwhelming, quality wise I had no problem at all, except for the fact that they lean more towards the upper bass rather than the sub, and I was taken by surprise a bit since the 3300 has one of the best lows I ever heard among BAs, with bass being full with no bias towards any partial spectrum. However it is understandable if the ci serves as sub bass here instead of the 3300.
I will see if the Objective 2 can be a good match for these.
Treble extension a little lacking,i still cant get pass that, I just learn that people call it very smooth. I thought it meant good high without harsh or peak but its actually a little roll off if u ask me to term it. For fun terms, I will use the word creamy to describe tg334 in one word. For people who wants reference to a full size headphone, I think the tonality sound similar to LCD-3 than hd650 due to the powerful bass. Sound stage can feel like out of head experience for me. But LCD-3 has much better treble extension for sure but tg334 have more mid bass.. Maybe a little too much sometimes.. Still ok.
By the way that silver cable plays very little difference in adding treble. I can hardly hear much difference.
For people who are in the same school of thought as ultrasone sig pro , th900, denon d2k-7k, this phone sound completely diff. But people who like hd650, LCD-2/3, the tg334 may be the ultimate traveling companion.
All in my own limited opinion.
