post #6436 of 12939

New toys just came in....The TG334 & Parterre.

 

 

 

 

So how does the sound? To be honest to my self....they don't impressed me much as what i expected at the first place. The only makes them different from my SM64/W4R/UM3x, is that they have more room in their sound, is more spacious and feel like a bit bigger in sound and also maybe more neat in presentation. Does that means better than my W4R? My answer is NOPE ! Technically speaking, probably they do, but speaking from overall enjoyment, from my initial listening (1 hour), from the setup above, i would prefer this below setup for sure !

 

 

The fitears Parterre and tg334, i do feel they not really good to be paired with an amp. I might be wrong, i need some more listening hours, but i do feel they can perform better (more proper) if direct connected to let say just an ipod OR DAP (like my tera). But for the Tera it self, i prefer the Parterre to 334. However, how much different does the enjoyment between tera+parterre VS tera+UM3x/w4r? I would say not much different, i feel like the UM3x/w4r has more intimate sounding if plugged to Tera.

 

Just to answer my "long" curiosity to my self, how does this TG334 actually compared to fulsize like my HD650 using the portable gear?? Now i can answer this my self...i would definitely say...i do MUCH prefer this below set up compared to above setup using the both Fitears. 

 

 

The 000 cable - i thought this should be a pure silver edition cable from Fitears, the funny thing is..when i tried to both the parterre and tg334, i do feel the highs is more rounded and the bass has more impact, which i don't like, especially to my tg334, which i think, one at a time the tg334's bass already too much for my taste.

 

Sometimes ago, one of my friend told me, the presentation and the sound image of tg334 will be more similar to HD800 or other fullsize, but to me, it is definitely NOT !! compared to my T1 or my HD800 - for the sound image it self, both cans has a FAR better presentation when it comes to that regards.

 

Overall presentation for the Parterre and TG334 is not bad at all, but for my taste, is not that perfect, but of course is above the so-so level IEMs. I will do some more listening, who knows i can love them more.

 

This is just my very initial and very honest impression from me.

I could be very well be wrong here, but I seem to recall someone mentioning that the 000 cable is silver plated copper instead of pure silver.

The amp recesses the mid range vocals a touch compared to Studio V alone, however the gain in air and soundstage width out weighs that small concern. You lose a touch of detail extension too though colours that raw sterile sound the Studio V has. With the pure silver cable, Studio V and amp tonality the whole rig leans rather cool and crisp but very clean with strong low end. Picks up a nice timbre to boot.

Let's hope the DX50 or that player that you picked up matches well.

I think u could be right. From the performance...it should be copper based...not the pure silver one.

Finally, after trying with some of my amps, i found this combo is the best match for my tg334, at least for now...hopefully gets better...

It seems like TG334 isn't really loved...

iPod Classic via LOD to ADL X1 to various over-ear headphones.

yup..i can understand that as i felt the same way on my 1st listening session. Maybe i was expecting too much from it. This is one of the top tier brand i bought (including shure 846 and also ie800, and LCD2 for the fullsize) that has the SQ below what i expected based on what i read in the forums. It is my bad, i live in a place that impossible to do the audition, so a place like headfi is really mean something to me in my decision. But unfortunately, in this Fitears for example, perhaps i put too much hope to have IEMs with fullsize SQ quality. But at least now i know, what people say this and that, are actually different from the fact of what i hear from my self.

 

Actually, my latest trying to the fitears that i just bought, its not bad at all. Maybe my love will start to grow day by day as for now i like it more already.

For the Parterre, i find it to be good as my Tera Player companion. The sound is getting very acceptable for my liking.

For the TG334+000 cable - after struggle trying every amp combination i have got..i find ipc/clasdb/apex glacier is getting better for my listening. Perhaps this a good start for me to claim to be the best...hopefully biggrin.gif
