As far as I know, your ear canals are too small to accommodate three sound tubes but origination is still from three except it is merged. I know a few people that only have two bores in their FitEar customs and they are all enjoying them very much.

 

You can also forget about the SR mod on your pair as I think one of the requirements was for there to be three sound tubes. 

Thanks! That's the most likely explanation. No matter, as I still think it sounds terrific! 

 

Come to think of it, I remember Derek telling something similar but didn't seriously look into it. Goodbye SR mod... :(

I've moved the Tralucent S'pore advert to the 1Plus2 & Ref1 threads folks. Let's stay on topic here.

Thanks, AnakChan. I thought it would of interest here because the cables for Fitear customs will be showcased as well. smily_headphones1.gif

Hey Anak, you said you asked Fitear something concerning the SR by email and were waiting for a reply. What is it if I may...not fully satisfied?

Yup...I'm aware Fitears seldom require refits so I'm hoping it stays that way for me as well.....

I'll be heading to Tokyo end of July and I'm very very tempted to go for the 335DW. Any advice regarding the MH335DW or the Pro Audio 335DW? Which one has a better sound? Any reference regarding the 335DW in comparison to the JH Audio JH13 Pro Freq Phase? The current IEMs that I own are Etymotic ER4PT and Vsonic GR07. I'm looking for an upgrade for these.

 I'm curious on purchasing a fitear custom directly from japan, i tot was mentioned before that we not allowed to do that directly there ? just to double confirm because I'm having my trip to japan on oct, i'll purchase my 2nd fitear if possible to.

I'm not sure about that veuxtres that's why I'm referring to the FitEar folks here especially Anak Chan because he's based in Japan

Hey Francisk, possibly not very helpful but I preferred the C435 over 335 and it was a stratospheric "upgrade" form the JH13 which I had only auditioned the week before. The clarity and detail, which is the usual perceived strength of the JH13 was just no comparison. As everybody with any knowledge or experience ultimately says here though, you really really really have to listen to stuff and make up your own mind. Being influenced by others subjective, or perhaps more appropriately, "personal" opinions, biases, and tastes is not always helpful. I know that's not always an easy thing to do though. I listened to both the 435 and the 335 from the Hugo with a 5th Gen iPod and an AK240, and they were both amazing but the 335 had the edge for me. Hope helps!?

335 for those who want more 'oomph' on the bass. smily_headphones1.gif
post #3251 of 3740
335 for mainstream commercial pop and rock. 435 to bring out the best in audiophile vocal jazz and classical recordings:)

Thanks for the info designmaniac, I'm actually looking for an analytical sound signature which is more towards neutral. I've tested the JH13 FP Pro (universal demo) and I find that there's a little mid bass bump that makes perceived bass to sound more prominent. As you can tell from my past IEMs, I tend to lean towards neutral and analytical signature. So through your experience with the 435 and 335, which one is more neutral and analytical without noticable bumps on any particular frequencies.

post #3254 of 3740
The c435 is more towards lean and analytical side...the bass is tight and fast but definitely not emphasised. Overall quite neutral sounding with good treble extension. If you dun like iems with emphasised bass... C435 shd be more suitable compared to 335

Thanks Lockeray...I'm looking forward to try them out before taking the plunge.
