FitEar Parterre (パルテール) Appreciation Thread - Page 18

Interesting. I also found the white IEM more trendy sounding than the parterre. Not that it was bad in anyway, but the original parterre is more appealing to me. More relaxing sounding I might say.

My Parterre sounds very very good with the stock AK100. I am considering getting the AK100 now. However, the stock AK120 is not good with the Parterre. I was very disappointed when trying it at Iriver booth. Much to my supprise that Suyama-san used and recommended the AK120 to pair with FitEar IEMs. It turned out that he modified his AK120, so it sounded much much better than the stock one that i tried earlier haha.

Hi spkrs01,

Do you use 000 or 001 balanced?
Which amp gives you the best synergy?

Thanks

Balanced, the 334 has bass that is tactile, fast and tight......with a lot more slam and attack! The whole presentation is tightened up and has a lot more focused...

Hello

 

I use the 001 balanced only with the 334....with either the 71B or Intruder portable amps. I have yet to receive my Parterre but am told it will arrive this month. I have tried my other FitEars with the 001 balanced but have failed to hear any sonic improvements from running single ended.

The white parterre's picture here, he told me that he change a little bit in acoustic filter of the original parterre. I feel the white parterre slightly brighter treble than the orginal and slightly wider soundstage but the mid drier also :)

Will this eventually be a model? Or is it just his personal tweak?

Thanks spkrs01.

Did you have any chance to try 000 balanced?
My TG334 is using 000 and I am thinking to get Intruder as a combo.

You and rudi are the best Headfier for advice and insights!

Thanks.

 

I have two 000 cables so if I have time this week, I may get it balanced. Been using the 000 on the 335 and the 111 which I simply adore...........

 

What balance amp are you using the 334 out of at the moment?

 

Cheers

I am using SE, with vorzuge + pico power.
Been curious about balance and Rsa intruder for the longest time.

My main IEMs are AKG K3003, PF X-G, Flat4 Kaede and TG334 (000, 001).

TG334 can be handful sometimes with its bass and fatiguing. So trying to try balanced with Intruder and control the bass of TG334.

Forget to ask you about uber mini-to-mini as well :-)

yup, same as the current version. it's red too. my friend told me that he found the white parterre actually is the older version of the current parterre but he released the current parterre version rather than the white one
