I dare not venture them coz they seem lesser known like DHC. Maybe my search is too narrow. smily_headphones1.gif

If you read his appreciation thread and check out his site you will find he is not really lesser known on head fi. He does great work at a far cheaper price.

Thanks Anak, I've read those impressions. I can't seem to get any conclusion as to which one to get so its down to cable quality. 

It'll be nice to see some closeups of the connectors themselves cos I quite like Fitear's own connectors, im not sure how the L-shape will hold up. 

In your opinion, does the Tralucent Gold/Silver kill the bass of the 335?

Just came back from vacation in Thailand. Either Tralucent Gold/Silver or Toxic Cables Silver Widow (also Piccolinos) didn't kill the bass of 335. The quantity of the bass is almost similar among those cables but there are slightly difference on how each cables handle the bass. Some are tighter than the other. Comparing to 001, those cables offer trebles extension far better than 000. In the end, it's down to your own preference. I preferred SW than Gold/Silver because it's slightly warmer and smoother.

 

In term of ergonomics, Piccolinos win since it's required only two wires instead of four. For the connector, unless you switch between cables all the time, those connector will hold up fine.

Thank Mtthefirst. After some thought Im more slanted toward the SW.
How do you identify the Piccolini, is it by that unique looking Y-splitter?
It does look heavy doesn't it?
post #2003 of 4919

All toxic cables have the same y-splitter. The plastic shrink wrap the the connector will indicate whether piccolinos, silver poison or silver widow. Piccolinos have only two conductor, one for each channel. Negative channel is wrap around the core of positive channel in a single wire.

The Y-splitter is very very light.

It looks like its made of metal?
Probably too bulky for me to coil into my westone zip case..

Im asking Frank if he could make something low profile.
Just simple heatshrink y-splitter like the BTG ones.
No need for the wooden ball choke.

Err...let me get back home after work tonight to check. I think it is but probably cast. The size, yes it's big but weight-wise, much lighter than expected. Like you when I saw the Toxic Y-splitter I was assuming it'll be heavy but it surprised me when I had one in my hands.

post #2007 of 4919
heh, even if its lightweight, I will probably skip it because of manageability.
Just my personal preference when it comes to daily commute.
Is there a reason for the use of such y-splitter?
I think regular heatshrink works just as well and also durable, u think?

Dunno but if the goal is to attract attention & identification, it definitely works.

Is the tg334 and 335dw a big different?

because i'd been thinking to get a ciem
Considering kaiser10, 335dw or c435

if 335dw and tg334 is very close i might just keep my 334 and go for c435, really hard to decide .

Even TG334 to MH334 there is a difference, TG334 compared to MH335DW it is even more different. Sound signature is changed and bass amount is very different.
