I would say that any other pair of FitEar customs would offer a different flavour to the 335....as personally, I find the 335 voiced quite heavily for certain genres.

 

The 435, of the two, will offer more contrast. The MH334 is probably the easiest on the ears in the current line up, balanced and musical.

Did someone here compare the UERM to MH335DW before?

Wah, like north and south poles leh.

Literally at 2 ends of audio signatures.

I think it should compare with the Roxanne.

Means? Not able to compare cause both of them have their own advantages?

It's the direct opposite signature. The UERM have a very reference sounding sig (AKG K3003-ish with peaky treble) whereas to me, the MH335DW is an extremely bass emphasized pair of iems.

Bass emphasized? Did you mean more bass/sub bass extension and musical compare to UERM?

No, the 335DW is simply a bassy headphone, even with it's very sweet mids, it is just bassy.

 

For me, the UERM is borderline too bright and the 335DW is borderline too bassy for my liking.

post #2635 of 3508
I on the other hand don't find the 335 too bassy at all. It's quite well balanced and natural with a slight bit of emphasis, depth and extension at the lower frequencies. Bass-heavy tracks will sound bassy, while non-bassy tracks just gain that nice (for me) sense of weight. Then again, I'm a TH-900 owner, so I guess it's all a matter of perspective.

I've not heard the UERM, but someone I know who does own both the UERM and 335DW says the UERM is more clinical and possibly more accurate, but it's a bit thin sounding compared to the 335. I suppose it's a matter of what you're more familiar with. If you're coming from a 335 and like it, then the UERM might sound too anorexic. If you're used to the UERM, then the 335 might sound a bit bloaty.

Does fitear have an IEM that is as closest to neutral as possible?
post #2637 of 3508

F111?

post #2638 of 3508
agreed. The F111 is suyuma san's tribute to the Etymotic ER4S. And the Ety is as flat and neutral as it gets. smily_headphones1.gif

Let's just say that almost anything else would be more musical and have more bass extension. smily_headphones1.gif

I was chatting with a friend over the weekend and I said for my next custom, I would only trust Fitear as I worry about wait time, build quality and the ordeal of refit etc...

He told me that the VE6 Xcontrol is supposed to have the same build and sound quality. Has anyone tried VE6? How do they compare with Fitear? Seems the asking price is higher than Fitear so I expect nothing less...I guess
