Reschelled TG334 by UM

post #1 of 15
Thread Starter 
I owned the TG334 from fitear for about 1 1/2. Years my second pair of universal IEM,S . I can thank Steve Gutenberg for the purchase. As I grew in this hobby I started to by customs , and once I did there Was no going back. Although the tg334 were great I always wanted the fit of a custom with them. Well they just arrived yesterday from UM. WOW the fit , the looks , and oh the sound . They are somewhere close to the JH13 but with a more euphoric sound I think it's a little more bass and a little on the lower mids that give this feel.

As alway UM products are a long wait but boy are they worth waiting for. I just wanted to tell everyone and feel free to pm me if anyone has any questions.

I wonder how it sounds differently from a MH334. It's too bad though that you lose the quality of Fitear in the process.

well your are correct the old shell was better looking. but UM does a good job and i got custom colors... the sound i think from reading is the same as the mh334 its a little base heavy and the lower mids are a little more foward then the rest. it is still very clear in sound though. i did it mostly cause the sound quality would change due the fit with the tips. i want them to just be the same. i add a little eq on the upper mids and tremble for my taste ..

describe you r iem,s

Here you go . Note two things the sound signature. Is shown on the eq graphs not flat .

Second note is the Ba ,s are all in the neck close . Not like my other iem,s even my pp6 or others I had UM reschell . It must be what matches the originals.

Any one with any thoughts.

IEMs will never show a flat response (the chart is uncompensated, meaning that it isn't equalized according to some hearing field model, e.g. diffuse field, free field, independent-of-field, etc.) --- if it looks completely flat, then it will sound nothing like flat, and instead very bassy, midforward, and very warm. They have a specific boost to compensate for the lack of outer ear involvement. The response there looks right, from my experience with UM's measurement printouts. They always have an artifact from 6-8k, part of the way the insert the earphones into the measuring coupler. I'm a little concerned about the treble extension, looks slightly different, but it's probably okay. Measurement rigs are somewhat inaccurate in the highest frequencies.

 

They're all put at the front because that's the way FitEar does it with their CIEMs. Different tube lengths/diameters impart fairly different resonances, as well as minute timing differences. This is the way FitEar chooses to design their IEMs, and as such, UM adopted the same philosophy to get it to match the original response as much as possible. My guess is that you weren't the first to get one reshelled --- this seems like they've already taken a long, hard look at the MH334 before (which is good for you).

 

It's too bad they didn't keep the titanium treble tube (or did they? The pictures are kind of blurry).

Very good reply and thanks . No I looked for it and do not see it. And when I emailed them regarding what I wanted they replied they have done them before. So off they went . I did email and speak to two others but they said they could but never did. Them. So I went with UM. the sound I am getting is that of when I got a really good sel with triple boer silicon tips . Although I still like the jh13 the best for iem,s these are good for everyday with communiting on trains. The isolation and fit is very good. The arcylic outside is very good but on the inside I can see a puddle of arclylic on one iem oh well. And thanks for the education in testing.

It looks like a very good job done but then you lose the titanium nozzle technology from FitEar that supposedly determine the sound character of the FitEar TG334

I could hear a chNge in them. The only change that ever occurred was when changing tips . And that is one of the reasones why I did the custom.

I am not saying we all should go custom for a better sound either . Just of we have other customs we can have it with them as well.

If I were you I'd sell my stock TG334 and then repurchase the custom version MH334 or better still the new 5 driver version MH335DW. I'd be so glad to purchase the stock TG334 from you wink.gif
