post #2461 of 4916

Here is my impression on "Studio Reference".

 

I had been demoed SR several times but this is the first time with perfect seal. The first thing that I notice is that trebles are extended further that standard model. Trebles rolloff that many people consider it to be a weak point of MH335DW is now much better. The other area that I notice is bass. SR give you better resolution in sub bass region. The quality of bass improve while the quantity of bass is pretty similar to standard version. Soundstage is pretty much the same. Mids are still the epic of SR but the improvement of trebles make it feel less mid forward. 

 

Overall I feel that SR is quite an improvement over MH335DW.

Now you make me feel like the 335DW sound like crap biggrin.gif
Curious have you ever asked if Fitear would make you an SR version from scratch instead of modifying, since its proven that your ears can fit the mod?
Any new signs of imperfection made to the shell as a result of the mod?

I never ask them but, theoretically, it is possible for them to build my SR from scratch if I happen to loss my current SR.

Does this means the SR makes the treble of the 335DW sounds more like the TG334?

I would say that it make SR feel a little brighter. It's been a year since I sold my TG334, so I couldn't remember what its sound like any more.

I'm still waiting for Suyama-san to contact me on when I can drop my 335 into his clinic for the upgrade :-(. I've sent him PMs but he's been busy travelling. When I do get it, I'd be able to do a comparison to my TG!334.

 

But based on what I tried at the Fujiya event last month, the universal demo MH335DW-SR was closer to the TG!334 (which is still one of my fav) but with greater soundstage & depth.

 

Meanwhile there seems to be some activity going on on Suyama-san's Twitter. :-

1) Looks like there's a new cable #029 coming out. It's only a pix with no details but I'm going to guess it's some kind of silver or silver/gold mix.

 

2) There's also a MH D335DW Studio Reference D-series where the 1st D stands for Double. This is a new 335DW SR variant.

 

I'd really like to be able to have a chat with Suyama-san but seems it's not easy to get hold of him.

1) Any idea how does FitEar's numbering system for cables works?

 

2) So it's the Double335DoubleWoofer?!! That's a lot of doubles. Might as well call it the FitEar Doppelganger.

1) Unfortunately no I don't. So far they seem random to me too.

2) I'm also particularly curious on what the first Double is and of course, how it sounds like!

 

Fitear is definitely not sitting idly!!

Double may also means double the price :D

Maybe the double meant they are joining the drivers race.

It seems April Fool seems to start early for some and I fell for it!
