However, due to fine finishing and the short stems implemented, it is possible to obtain a 95+% fit on second hand pair. Of course, one will have to try them first and it seems second hand pairs only appear in Japan. My friend can use my FitEar customs without a problem and they give him a good 98% fit, so he says and seals completely.....................

I can also get about 90% seal on the 335DW owns by one of the staff at Jaben Singapore but totally no seal at all on the C435 owns by Wilson of Jaben. Could be due to the short stem

Thankfully i had a pretty good fit with the jaben sg demos and (uncle) Wilson's 435


I still prefer the 333s over the 335 and 435.. I thought the bass of the 335 was too much and the highs/mids seemed to be a little curtailed at the top end.

Comparatively the 435 has very good layering and separation but the 333s have more weight in the mids and bass


My comments may be biased because I own the 333 xD

333 had more weight in the mids and bass?! I heard a full custom at Jaben and it fit my ear pretty sweetly and I thought the bass was lacking biggrin.gif

 

I couldn't get a fit on the 335, but I definitely liked the 435!

I did tried on the 333 and find that the sound is quite neutral.

 

I had tried the 333, 335 and 435 so far and preferred the 435.

 

I had not tried the 334 yet but heard that the uncle who owned it more bassy as compared to the 335 that he told me.

Sounds about right re: 334 being bassy.

Perhaps it's the source then tongue.gif

But my session with the 435 I found the mids of the 333 more forward and bass tighter though.

Maybe spkr01/ Gavin can share his comparisons too biggrin.gif

I personally found everything on the 333 forward (barring its lack of bass) biggrin.gif

 

I like how Gavin is now the go to person for FitEar too by the way biggrin.gif

A quick note on the Private 333

 

Vocals and the mids defintely takes center stage, highs and lows are present but takes a secondary role.

 

The 333 is definitely the pair in the range that has a very unique character, and not the typical FitEar house sound but if you like vocals and like hearing it as if the singer is caressing yours ears with their voice, then a huge thumbs up for the 333normal_smile%20.gif

Looks like Drew Baird released the FitEar cables; they look good:

 

CREATOR: gd-jpeg v1.0 (using IJG JPEG v62), quality = 90
CREATOR: gd-jpeg v1.0 (using IJG JPEG v62), quality = 90

Well, they look quite similar in style/quality to the BTG overmold, except with strain relief instead of memory wire and black instead of clear... I still wish the L/R indicators were made on the broad face like the stock ones, but I guess these overmolds are blowups of the normal IEM overmolds, so their placement is the same.
