Apparently these are made by FAD/S'NEXT too? The strain reliefs certainly confirm that...

There probably isn't enough WAT for that :l

Just... Why. That flat cable is the one thing that I just can't stand about certain Heaven models :/

The micro phonics of the flat cable are my only criticism.

Some crude impressions of the PF IX:

 

I really do like the feel of steel in my ears. Very comfortable air too.

 

Also, it seems that I have to turn up the volume up pretty high to get a decent sound from it. Is this due to the little isolation, or are the PFs hard to drive?

 

 

The sonics are pretty hard to describe...

 

I guess it's easiest if I provide a metaphor:

 

The TG!334 is like a good steak. Good for breakfast, lunch, and dinner. Delicious and filling.

 

The Piano Fortes are a bit finicky. They're like a good dessert. If you overindulge with them, you end up feeling sick. But when you don't use them, there's a constant craving that digs at you. And when you finally use them after a refractory period, you forget all about the discomfort that you had when you overate(listened). So far, I dig it!

That's very odd because the PFs (as well as the 1601s, FIBASS & FIBASB) are very sensitive phones, very, very easily driven. I'd say they're as sensitive as, or very close to, the 334s in that respect. Now, if you're wearing he IXs in a loud environment, then that might explain things... somehow, anyway, as they provide zero isolation.

Do you want to hate the PF IX? Spend a few days with the ER4S and you will.

Do you want to love both IEMs? You've got to have harman/karboard sparrow's ears for that.

 

Here's a track that sounds great through both IEMs—a track I'm quite sure Mr spkrs01 likes quite a bit (or will like quite a bit); a track our good old MF would find utterly unpalatable; a track our sleazy VH loving friend, Mr SGS, would never ever listen to unless, err… he was forced to while attempting to get lucky: http://grooveshark.com/#!/s/03+Life+For+Rent/4kK0s7?src=5

I know a VH fan who listens to that song even when not trying to get lucky.

No need to spend a day with anyone or anything, just spend a few minutes reading a few of his posts and that should do the trick. You can start here: http://www.head-fi.org/forums/posts/by_user/id/104361

I guess you could say there's still hope for Mr SGS, then.
