post #766 of 4915

All are from Jaben so I think maybe because of that.

 

I was thinking maybe going to Japan to buy will be much much cheaper.

 

$168000 Yen = about $2100 Sing.

A bit less than that. Don't forget to flash your passport for tax free :D

Personally I would go 335 and Monet.  I find 334 lackluster compared to 335 (I'm waiting for my 335 as well, so I've auditioned both), and if Monet is different to the both the 335 and 334 it would make more sense to have it to compliment the line up.

What are you impressions of the 335?

The demo had a really bad fit on my so my impressions were short and inaccurate. Reading Space Cowboy (Marshal Banana)'s comparisons it seems that what I thought was due to bad fit, was more or less correct.

 

I gotta try them again. In fact all of them again, and the remaining lineup.

 

I love the way the 334 sounds, just that it could use a bit more treble. A bit less mid bass would be great for my preference. If the mids of the 334 are not lost in the 335--as is the case with the Monet which has all the highs I can ask for, then the 335 might be for me.

My impression is that the 335 is more fun/has more bass impact while the 334 is more towards neutral with the sparkly treble being its defining moment but otherwise not as impressionable as the 335 in mids and bass, and since I'm no longer looking for neutral-ish headphones (see my list of stuff, I prefer a hockey stick FR where the mids aren't too recessed with a slight boost on the bass rather than the treble/bass boost recessed mids of the usual U shaped FR) so I much prefer the 335.

X1!

 

BTW, is your handle from the Steve Miller song?

 

I am listening to the 334s right now. I believe this rig get's the head shake of the day!  

MBP > PS PWD MK II > RSA Hornet > FT!334s.

I already mentioned these quite often. The sound sig is close to the 334, more focused on bass and mids, slightly at the expense of highs. Compared to the TG334, you have faster and tighter bass, with a bit less mid bass, more details in mids and highs, and highs that are slightly more laid back. The resulting sound is very organic, visceral in my opinion. The soundstage is the most intimate of all Fitear models, but still with great depth and the same 3D "made in Fitear" effect. On many aspect, they remind me of the LCD2. The level of transparency is incredible, only the Tralucent 1plus2 (with a very different approach to sound) and some other Fitear models may rival the 335 on this aspect. An incredible mix of fun and technical performance.


 

Thanks a lot for translation! 335 really looks like my next CIEM~beerchug.gif

Are you talking about Togo 334 or MH 334. Because they apparently sound quite different.

Mine still haven't arrived yet but I fingers crossed I should be getting them pretty soon.


Great avatar

Thanks for the impressions.

From the demo I heard (with a really bad and painful fit) the mid bass wasn't as pronounced as in the 334 and there was a bit more treble to it than the 334.

The 334 certainly did not hit me as a earphone with sparkly treble; perhaps the Monet was, in that aspect.

They sounded almost the same to me...

That is, the MH334 demo fit my ears very well but wasn't my own custom mold, and the ToGo I had to change to my own tips which may have a slightly larger opening.

The MH334 sounded more warm to me but had slightly deeper imaging than the TG!334. Meanwhile the TG!334 also had a little more sparkle than the MH334.

DonnyHifi (who owns a pair of MH334) & I concluded that the titanium tubes the TG!334 had a part to play in this.

I hear the MH334 quite differently to the ToGo! 334, the MH334 being more focus, tighter and basically more correct in terms of sound staging...a totally in front and out of the head experience. Very natural soundingnormal_smile%20.gif

 

Will confirm this when I order them after my C435 arrives, probably at the end of this month.............

Interesting...

I did try the two of them on different days, which, based on memory did sound almost the same.

I'll definitely revisit that.

For the people more interested in their more obscure and older offerings - happened upon a nice comparison between the C435 and the Pro Audio 335 -  http://jp.bt-fi.com/?eid=865943

Also a Pro Audio 335 impression -  http://jp.bt-fi.com/?eid=856419

The site happens to have a ton of C435 info/comparisons and other impressions on the Private series. I think I'm in heaven.

http://jp.bt-fi.com/?eid=834619 - C435 impression

http://jp.bt-fi.com/?eid=818097- C435 vs the SR-001

http://jp.bt-fi.com/?eid=811623 - C435 vs Pro Audio 224 vs TF10

http://jp.bt-fi.com/?eid=756635 - C435 vs UE10 Pro

 

And you can also get a crapload of good info on the FitEars blog.
