I  received my Fit Ear ToGo 334 IEMs from ALO audio last Friday, but held off on posting this until i received permission from them to do so.  Let me start by saying I am a very lucky guy to have a set of these, they are AMAZING.  Make all my other IEMs sound like junk, even  the Shure SE 535s, Sennheiser IE-8s, UE (cant remember model) and Etymotic    They tell me I am the only person outside of Japan to have a pair. Here are some pics more soon....

How did you get them?   I don't see them on their website.  Do they offer the Fit Ear MH334 customs?

little more info.  ALO is going to stock them,.  They received only 5 pair initially,  1 sent to me, the other 4 to top reviewers, so expect to see some reviews soon.  It may be some time before they are able to offer them for widespread sale because they are each handmade in a small workshop in Japan, so inventory building is going to be slow. I think they may have more soonthough so keep checking.  They were close to $1,400. for the pair, but well worth the price.  Every time i listen I am truly amazed at the sound produced by these.   They really do blow away every other universal IEM i have heard, and i have tried what was previously thought to be the best.  When i quick change and switch to a different IEM I was initially shocked that the IEMs i previously thought were great sounds dull and lifeless.  These are that good.  More comparable to my Senheisser 650 with Lariet 22 balanced cable from ALO then another IEM.  Obviously they are in my ear not over it, but the music has a similar "jump" to it....smooth crisp highs, deep powerful bass and sweet sweet mids that make the music come alive....and the soundstage, its there both wide and deep.  They make good recording sound great and bad recordings still sound good. You can hear the difference, and know its not the best recording, but the music still sounds good....that pretty incredible.   I can write a mini review if anyone is interested (reply here), but my previous statements tell the story, you have to hear these things to understand.......start saving now.

i got them by being in them right place at the right time.  I ordered a new amp, DAC and some cable for my 650's and got to chatting on the phone.  I asked about any closed phone options they could recommend and the guy mentioned these.....Turns out the guy i was on with had some clout  there and offered me a pair.  They will be on the website soon

You guys need to use the search function. The other thread on the Fitears are up to page 19 http://www.head-fi.org/t/597146/fitear-to-go-334-suyamas-flagship-custom-made-universal/270

Great marketing and totally not true, see above thread. There are many that have them and don't live in Japan.
 
 
 
Other than that though I hear they are great! It was a toss up between these and the Westone ES5's. In the end I opted for custom fit rather than another set of universals (no matter how good the universals are).
 
I did try out a demo pair of FitEar C435 and the impression that they left on me was... well lets just say 2 weeks later I dropped $1300+ on a set of customs (albeit not Fitears), that's how good they sounded... Wallets beware!
 
Stingers69 please post a review on the other thread. I am sure dozens would like to read your views on them

I did not make this statement with marketing intentions in any way. I don't think it was made to me with those intentions either since I already owned the headphones when he told me that. I am sure he was simply trying to make the point that until ALO can offer them, it's been difficult to get outside of Japan. I can only assume that there are no other dealers outside of Japan, and one would have to buy them during a visit to Japan and being them home.

Sorry if I mislead anyone, that was not my intention.

No worries Stingers, all's good. There are other ways to buy from overseas other than to travel there...

 

Most important is to post your impressions of the FitEars etysmile.gif
