I actually like the FA-4E better. The FA-4E is more resolving, clearer, and just as spacious. The difference in soundstage could have the 334 resembling more of a 3D bubble type effect, and the FA-4E as a tad more linear... but equally as wide. To me, that slightly more holographic effect seems to be the only small advantage the 334 has over the FA-4E. Everything else is that small iota more enjoyable with the Fischer Amps... cleaner bass but with equal ultimate low extension (perhaps even a touch more sub-bass), midrange equally as resolved and transparent (maybe just a hair thinner feeling, but by no means recessed even when going back and forth between the two phones), and treble which is a marked improvement showing noticeably better extension and sparkle. Also, regarding the treble, since it has that smoother presentation it made me notice a lower treble bit of glare/bite on the 334. Overall, the FA-4E is a clearer window into musical enjoyment!

 

So there you have it, the reasons why I decided it was ok to sell the 334!

Well I did spend a lot of time A/Bing both closely to make sure of my decision to sell it.

Yes like them.

 

cn11, thanks for your point of view, I totally agree with you. Could you tell us what do you think about FA4 vs. MG6pro ? Thanks

Ummm, well I stopped listening to the MG6Pro a while ago, because the Fitear 334 was so much clearer and more spacious. That's like comparing the North Pole and South Pole they are so opposite. And the comparison would be the same with the FA-4E. It is not even worth listening to them back to back because the FA-4E is wonderfully balanced, smooth, detailed, and everything sounds as it should and lifelike. With the MG6Pro, the vocals are recessed, weirdly plasticky and nasally sounding, almost like they're in an echo chamber or something. The highs don't extend nearly as far, and sound sibilant all the while. The bass is of course seismic by comparison which is fun and enjoyable if your music demands that, but other than that, there is no reason to do comparison at all. I vividly can bring up that MG6Pro sound sig, and don't even need to listen to them back to back (nor do I want to-- as I couldn't be bothered to change over from the goodness of the FA-4E).

Does anybody have meelec balanced tips? I just got my ordered pairs and they're the same that came with the ASG-2. I find them better than single flanges, better than comply tips. They are the most spacious, extended and neutral. So if you find that lack of edge in electric guitars bothering, you really should try them. Strings, brass, vocals sound more life like as well to my ears. But less mid bass. Still great impact though. And sub bass is the same I'd say. I just want people to try to see if they like them and if they get the same results.

And also. Is someone able to send a pair to mr joker? Would really be awesome to get them up on that thread. And funny to know what he thinks.

I'm going to buy meelec balanced ear tips for FA-4E.

http://www.meelec.com/MEElectronics_Eartips_p/ts3-df-50-gy.htm

Is this ear tip compatible with FA-4E XB?
post #777 of 1734

Yes it is. I find the fit better, it's more secure, if I also take the sound tube from a comply tip (TS because it's shorter) but you can make the nozzle fatter with anything I think, tape or whatever. I just like the added diameter, it gives me a better seal and it's easier, I don't have to fiddle with it, just to put in and enjoy the sound of angels softly singing in your ears.

People I'm actually using this combo for the fa 4e lg optimus 2x + ibasso d4 high flight topkit + a very good lod. Sound is pretty good, but this combo is really heavy to carry in the pocket while I'm in home...so I'm considering something lighter but I'm also looking for good sq, my question is: do the fiio x3 or the ibasso dx 50 sound as good as a cellphone-ipod+good amp, do they sound better than my iphone 5? if not i could consider a lighter amp  but I don't want to spend more than 250$ 

 

Thanks

I couldn't find anything custom related for Black Friday that I wanted so these are back on my radar. From what I have gathered these offer a more fun signature but still resolving.

How's the build quality of these. It looks like an acrylic like most customs are made of so I assume it is good but just double checking. Well other than the logo falling off I haven't seen too much complaint but I haven't been following this thread too long

No one of us has noticed problems with build quality apart the sticked lyrics, they feel sturdy way more than sm3 v2 or um3x for example. Without the fa logo is like a plain custom universal.

About sq in the first page you can find the links for every single review and comparation
