I will try again to get a loaner, but this time for a longer time. 

post #122 of 839

subscribing to this thread as I am very interested in these!

are there any more measurements than the FR chart? or perhaps measurements done by the same measurer on other IEMs I might know. I haven't tried the ER4S so I can't really imagine what the treble is like. can anyone do a brief comparison to ATH-CK100 (what I have right now)? smily_headphones1.gif

Just a quick question......for classical (mostly string quartets and the like) should I choose the 334's or the 111's?  Thanks folks.

Probably the 111 --- it'll give you a flatter presentation of classical music.

 

However, it does depend on what you enjoy listening to within the chamber setting, i.e. cellos, violins, etc.

Thanks tomscy.  The complete presentation is important but nothing beats a nice cello building out of the background.  I also listen to lots of solo pieces of both instruments.

Well, a 334 will give you more forward cellos, for sure, but they won't drown out the violins and/or violas (violas are usually drowned out by default, heh... poor violas, the neglected orchestral instruments). You can't really go wrong with either, but in general, if you listen to purely orchestral pieces, you'll appreciate the presentation of the 111 more. If you listen to opera in addition to orchestral music, as well as other genres with vocals, then a 334 would be more versatile. The 334 will put vocals front and center. That's not to say that the 111 doesn't do a good job with vocals; on the contrary, but the forwardness of the 334's vocals are sublime in a way that's difficult to match, because of its elevated lower midrange, giving more definition to vocal formants and fundamentals.

^ tomscy2000,
So do you think it's worth it to own tg111 even though I've Already got the tg334? And i mainly listen to trance.
post #128 of 839

In my opinion, no, unless you find the bass of the 334 "slow".

Ordered the 111's today and decided they would be my Christmas present to myself.  Isn't justification a wonderful thing.  Thanks to tomscy and everyone in this thread for all the great information!

post #130 of 839

I've been wondering how they compare to the Final Audio Design Heaven VI's, the impressions I've read suggest they might be fairly close. I think the F111's will be more comfortable of the two.

 

Edit: Order cancelled.

hmm! really curious about these guys right now, as I have no phones whatsoever here.

does any owner feel that these at any point are fatiguing? is it possible to compare it with the HD800 treble fatigue level or less/more? I can't really picture it right now.

thanks!

Very interested in these. How do they do with pop and rock?

I got the impression that ety er4 are a tiny bit sibilant troubled... especially after hearing phonak pfe with grey filters which are supposed to sound similar. Should I expect this from the f111 too?

The ER4 are not supposed to be sibilant, and neither should the F111 be, either. While it does share a similar response, the PFE can sometimes come off as sibilant if it isn't worn as deeply as possible, as would the ER4 or F111, if you don't insert it fully. Both the ER4 and F111 are designed for deep insertion fits.

 


 

BTW, people, I don't know what has been going on, but the F111 seems to have more and more bass every single time I listen to it. I'm not sure if the filters are getting clogged, and therefore the treble doesn't stand out as much, or there are tuning variations between batches that deviate from the original tuning.

hmm, I used the PFE with the stock olive tips and inserted as deep as I could. seal seemed good and all. maybe not so perfect fit for me frown.gif or just overly sensitive to sibilance. any clue if the tip choice might be the culprit? I don't think I can get the tips as deep as with the tri flange f.e. I really did like the tonal balance of the pfe though, just not the spikes. well you got my hopes up again, though I do want to use the olive tips rather than the flanges... tongue.gif so hmm.
thanks smily_headphones1.gif
