If you could ask the guy about their availability, that would be awesome. They're surprisingly expensive: I think around 600-800 USD.
Sorry you wont be going to Fujiya! Maybe next time? You can bet there will always be stuff to look forward to there (and probably three more Flat4s by this time next year LMAO).
Regarding FitEar, build quality is a major part of it, yeah. It's some of the best I've encountered in IEMs whether they're custom or universal. They're also exceedingly comfortable and one of the few listening devices I actually want to wear when I'm not in a masochistic mood. Honestly I don't talk about comfort as much as some people, at least not in a make-it-or-break-it sort of way, but that doesn't mean I don't appreciate it. Over the years I've learned to tolerate quite a bit of gear-related discomfort, just because I like collecting and using a variety of stuff. Then there's the masochism aspect. Sound-wise I really like FitEar's monitors too. Even when they're more overtly colored, it's done in a way that isn't overdone or intrusive. They're all fairly transparent sounding and natural to my ears in most cases.
Ok I found it but the guy was not online, I left him a message.
I'll try Fujiya again in October...only problem is that I will have a kid by then and iems will be the least of my problems :)
I think I'll just spend a weekend in Tokyo in June or July and get a pair of Fitear...not sure which one yet. I wish someone had a pair of MH334. Think I'll get a 335 anyways, since I have several customs, I do not need to have a "reference" sound, esoteric sounding like Gavin qualifies it is fine.
The new Patarre weren't in Fujiya Avic when I went there just before closing. Since they have the demo models of most of the popular customs I could try the 335. I got the impression that while they are a bit too bass heavy for my tastes, my HP-P1/Pico Power rig wasn't good enough for them. I need a DAC as good as the Master 7 that is the same size. Given the Yen is now at a more sane rate, I'm probably going to get the 335s.
