post #2176 of 13100

Those FitEars? I love that cable. I wish it was compatible with my CIEM's. Pretty sure the pins for FitEars are slightly different than other CIEM's. How's the flexibility of the cable? Can you coil that up nicely? 

 

Also, quick three comments on the pairing of the Tera and CIEM's please. Also, that's the MH335DW, correct? Which headphone jack you use the most? SuperDuper or TeraMega?

On a more positive note (and probably to the extent of some hate from certain people)



Boom!

These are the FitEar MH335DWs, yes. i've been using the low gain one (not sure which is which LOL) but from what I've heard the MH335DW has been amazing with the Tera, very musical. I'll post my impressions of them some other time I guess smily_headphones1.gif

Be sure to PM me about that or put a link in the Tera Player thread. TeraMega is the one closer to the side. (I believe)

All red will be too much for me and Fitear red is not that pretty.

I can hear the effect of higher impedance on my MH335DW but the sound from ipod touch is not that good. There are other DAC/Amp that will be suitable for my MH335DW but I consider the portability and Go-Dap X fit right in that category. Right now I'm looking for low profile amp that will be paring with Go-Dap DD Socket 1.

Here is a picture of the Fitear's pins. Stock cable is a bit stiff but no problem when I coiled them. My ALO SXC 24 cable is another story. It's very stiff and microphonic like hell. I need to be careful for these cable. On the other hand, 000 upgrade cable from Fitear is the worst in term of stiffness.

Agreed on the stiffness, its just too rigid sometimes... But the pairing with the 335 is stellar.

I might get 000 cable when I upgrade my rig in the future but right now I'm happy with my ALO cable.

Thanks for the information. I do not include FitEar aftermarket cables from FitEar in my CIEM list because they're from manufacturer, so they're more like stock cables. It is interesting to hear about everything though. I sometimes forget that FitEar makes their own cables. I am glad to see you have the ALO cable as I appreciate the comparison. If you'd like to write a review for any of those cables I'd really love to include the information in my list. No one's reviewed the ALO FitEar cable yet. 

 

Microphonics and stiffness don't sound good to me. You familiar with other ALO cables? Is this a common problem?

There are some comparison between 000 cable and ALO cable in 334 thread. You can search in that thread. Generally 000 give you taller and deeper sound stage but bass become a little bit bloat. On the other hand, ALO cable improve mid and treble bet keep the same sound stage.

Though with the 335s the bass becomes more controlled...

Do a bit of domestic travel and about to do the mother of all intl flights - 29 hours, so invested in these puppies. The bulid quality is good, and SQ is different to say the least. Anyways so far even doing work at my desk at home listening to music with the Noise Cancelling on, the blackness between songs is impressive.
