Thank you all for reading my review and for your compliments! Don't hesitate to let me know if you have any questions.
Wow, stunner of a review.
I'm currently using TG334s as my daily, but was thinking about getting a backup pair of something else. I see a mention in one place of the 334s, but I haven't really seen much in the way of comparisons between them elsewhere. Any chance you could shed more light on the differences?
Unfortunately I can't A/B the 334 and SM64 at the moment, maybe in a while, but from my chart (where I keep all my numeric scores which help me with comparisons as well as remembering performance), the 334 outperforms the SM64 in pretty much everything except for speed. There is more bass capability, a larger space, better transparency, more dynamics, etc. Certain aspects are close, such as the coherence and resolution of the soundstage, but if your ears are used to the 334, you should notice a step down in performance, as you would expect considering the huge price difference. A loose frame of reference, the SM64 has an overall score of 60.7, which hasn't been added to this chart yet. I would need to A/B to really tell the differences in the presentation, but I think the 334 is closer to the SM3 than the SM64 in overall presentation.
It is on the harder side to drive since it does have inline resistance that improves the sound. Unfortunately, I didn't have time to test the SM64 with aftermarket cables. I will see if I can fit it in within the next week or so.
Thanks. I keep hearing good things about the Tera player...
Yea, the SM3 was a game changer for me. And a gateway IEM...be careful
Thank you very much!
I am going to try to get the 232 review up within a week. Thanks for catching the typos, I guess all the Es and Ss were too much for my brain, especially since I own the EarSonics EM4 and EM3 pro.
I enjoy reviewing enough to do it full time
The scale is for custom IEMs. A hunk of silicone sitting in your ear with a deep fit is pretty isolating! The SM64 performs about on par with the SM3.
