but yea. wear and tear wise ymmv significantly possibly also depending what you do in the earphones. (although I'm not entirely sure many people will go for marathon runs in $1.3k universals)

the SE535LTD-J got rolled of treble anyway so hard to tell how the comlay tips changed it, i was happy and fine with them, in case my IEM was TF 10 pro them i might saw difference when i A/B the tips, the comfort was very nice, and the sound was something that made these IEM stay hours in my ear.

i also dont use comply tips very often, it kind of 'supresses' the treble a little, and that sparkle in the treble in my 1+2 diminishes

 

best tips i've used so far, either the spinfit silicone tips or the Monster supertips (foam or gel, depends which fits u better)

Looks and comfort: They are made with quality, are light weight, and the memory foam tips work well for me. I'd like more isolation.  BTW, using comply's on the 334s and because the nozzle is so big, it does not muddle sound that I can tell.

 

Oh, and the cable........what a pleasure to use as opposed the fire hose 000 :)

looking forward reading ur impressions when i wake up in the morning

 

i am pretty sure both have a pretty different sound sig, with the 334 slightly darker, thicker with the vocal and slightly more present lower end

sexy combo right? XD



The sound with the stock cable is good!! i never like the Miracle with the stock cable!! lol!!  and the Mentor with stock cable is so so so clean!!! and there is bass!!  , the Treble compared to Miracle with the stock cable is way way better!! , i am really shocked here, i wana pull the stock cable and go for the other one but i can't ..

but got say that the sound is just way to clean, smooth and not harsh in any way, in fact the miracle looks aggressive when i compare it with the Mentor, not that i am saying the Miracle is harsh.

i wana see how far can this get with the stock cable,  oh for the info the Tralucent gold cable is like 700$ and with a very nice sound with the Miracle, thats why i never went to the stock cable, yet the Mentor even with the stock cable did blow out my Miracle out of the water, i was afraid that i will end up flying to singapore to get Fitear 435, but seems like i will wait way longer :P 

will update you guys with more info later.


oh also i am using WA7 with upgraded golden pin tubes.
