Spent around 2 hours so far on these, and they have not "wow" me yet like the Parterre
 

Jaben sells the ASG-2 ? i went in before and they didnt have it ! i tried the parterre at the mook fest...still prefer the ASG-2 , they fit me alot , the Parterre was just something i did not have a strong liking to , espically since it had a relative poor price to performance ratio not worth the $1600 price tag , felt more like a $1300 IEM at best.

I demoed them yesterday and they sound even worse than the originals. No soundstaging whatsoever (they sound about as headphoney as headphones can get), very sloppy bass control, ANC hiss without any cancellation whatsoever, and very shallow, uncomfortable pads.

I just saw this thread:

Not bad at all:

Jaben hkg... Parterre has its big punchy sound for symphony type music while still reveals the detail and separate the instruments brilliantly... I want to keep two pairs if money allows
I lend out my asg-2 to a frd this week but based on my experience, i cannot convincingly say the same comment.. I also been told that upgrading cable may improve. however,still contemplating whether to continue to invest or sell it so to move on to 1p2 or 846 which are more likely to become classics

I stopped reading the graph when I saw they ranked the KEF a 5 on value and gave the DT1350 a 4. I've owned the DT1350 and have heard the KEF. The DT1350 walks all over the KEF and is by far a better value. Just my opinion of coarse.

I was surprised by the DT1350's low ranking as well. Did they fix the quality control issues with it? I recall hearing some people having channel imbalances and/or units that sounded differently.

Me too. I really have not noticed any qc issues with dt1350. I tried three pairs, and they all sounded the same...

MH's big problems with the DT-1350 were the QC and how uncomfortable they were if you wear glasses while using them. He and I disagree on this point. (I am wearing them atm...biggrin.gif )

As a guide, I don't think it's up to snuff for head-fi - it's something I'd expect to read in a yahoo news feed since most of the headphones are mainstream products. I don't see the point of comparing headphones with and without noise canceling capabilities, either. I think it's more for people just getting into the hobby than anything.

In my opinion the score would be like this: (i have both Momentum & DT1350)

The carrying case for Momentum i know is not that small, but i would say is pretty nice and compact as well. Getting 2.5 score is too small. I would say 3.5 - 4

The construction of DT1350 i bet will last longer than Momentum. Is not as nice as Momentum, but DT1350 is the most robust supra aural HP i ever owned. U can feel it by just holding it. I would say 4-5 points.

The bass on DT1350 only get 2 points?? That must be a wrong fitting. I think the bass of dt1350 would at least 3.5 (or 4 - unless the scorer is a bass head). Misreading it...its "4" that will do biggrin.gif

And for the imaging - is hard to say, i but i would give it 4, the DT1350 is very capable of scaling so much better with better amplification. So it will depend on our source gear actually.

very NICE !!

best small...and best sounding too...perfect..!

How do you think your MH334 compared to TG334+000 cable? Any experience on that? 

Thank you.

I would never get bored with this amp...!

This graph looks like it is done by someone who doesnt know what they're talking about.

 

Take the Sony MDR-1R for eg.[sorry, I'm a fanboy]

He/she gives a comfort of 5 but gives the construction 3.5?

 

It's because of the construction you get a good comfort!

My Ko Jo KM - 01 with headphone set up :

Source : iPhone 4s
Amp : Ko Jo KM - 01
Headphone : Sennheiser HD 700 with after market from Japan
Ultrasone Sig Pro with Oyaide after market cable
Cable : diy USB to Lod Van Den Hul Tone Arm Cable

SQ With this set up :
My IMO

Ultrasone Sig Pro has better SQ than Sennheiser HD 700

Ko Jo KM - 01 is very good for all iems
Like Um Miracle , Fit Ear MH 335 DW , Tralucent Audio 1+2
and
all Headphone with low Impedance
Like Ultrasone Sig Pro , Sig DJ , Grado HF2, Fostex TH 900

With high impedance headphone is only good , I feel has not enough power to drive high impedance headphone like
Sennheiser HD 700 , HD 800 and Ortho like LCD 2 , LCD 3



Source : IPhone 4s
Dac : Venture Craft Go Dap DD1 LE with op amp : Muse 02
Amp : Ko Jo KM - 01
Headphone : Sennheiser HD 700 with japan after marker Cable
Ultrasone Sig Pro with Oyaide after market cable

SQ :
With additional external idevice Dac Go Dap DD 1 LE op amp Muse 02
Improve the SQ significant

With high impedance now HD 700 SQ is very good
My Sig Pro is excellent now .

Has better detail, separation , soundstage , bass detail and bass impact
