They are going to change the old faceplate to the new version if you upgrade to studio, hence the higher price. The new faceplate have better contact, which is firmer than the old two point clamp, the new one uses a coil spring which provides more contact points and a stonger hold on the plugs.

Here are my impression on both MH335DWSR and Roxanne.

 

I found that trebles in Roxanne extend nicely but feel a bit harsh compare to SR. Bass control on Roxanne is also quite impressive. Be able to adjust bass level for your own preference is nice. I found that Roxanne is a little bit too big (yeah! lots of drivers) but overall Roxanne is an impressive CIEM.

 

On the other hand, MH335DWSR isn't like an upgrade to me. It's more like getting a new pair of custom. The sound signature is quite different from MH335DW. Trebles are extend a lot further and smooth. From the lower mids and bass focused, SR is less focused and sound more neutral for me. Bass and mid are very well control. Resolution is still pretty much preserved.

 

From what I heard from Suyama san, the sound signature of SR probably won't change anymore. The reason that he still can't offer an upgrade yet come from the technical side. He still need to sort out all the component and upgrade procedure at the factory.

I'm going for SR since the upgrade from my MH335DW cost only about 400$

Depends if you are independently wealthy. If you get both that will be nearly three thousand US dollars.

Please bare with another cable comparison. :D

 

Comparison between Toxic Cables Silver Widow and Tralucent Silver/Gold on MH335DW.

 

AnakChan send both Toxic cables back to me along with his Tralucent silver and silver/gold for some more comparison between those two brands. I’ll only focus on silver widow and silver/gold cables. We both owned MH335DW but agreed that we have different preferences in term of music.

 

I found that both cables offer significantly improvement from stock cable. Especially in trebles region. Trebles are nicely extended. Trebles and mids are clean and clear with lots of details compare to stock. I feel that silver/gold is slightly more forwarded in trebles/mids than silver widow which tend to focus on bass and lower mid. Bass on both cables are details with a tad warmer on silver widow.

 

The noticeably difference between silver/gold and silver widow come from 3D representation. Silver/gold cable sound more open and doing better in term of instrument separation.

 

So, the question is which cables I like. My sonic preference tend to the warmer sound. Thus, I preferred silver widow over silver/gold cables. The super clear, clean, and mid/treble focused sound of silver/gold cable troubled my ear when listen for longer time compare to slightly warmer sound of silver widow. I surely miss the wider soundstage that silver/gold cable can deliver but, in the end, it down to personal preference.
