A 'Hit-or-Miss' IEM - You will either love it or hate it.

Posted

Pros: Awesome finish, Bass isn't bloated, Excellent Treble extension

Cons: Cable is pretty bad, Definitely one of those 'hit -or-miss' iems, Definitely not for people with small ears.

Ok first of all I will be using my Sansa Clip as my source as I feel an iem should always be tested with portable sources. I paid $200AUD for them brand new, which is dirt-cheap by Australian standards. I do not believe in burn in, especially for armature drivers - owning and listening to many iems has shown me burn-in is just a mental phenomenon where the brain adjusts to a new sound signature. I will throw some quick comparisons to other iems I have tried, such as the IE8 and RE0. Initial Impressions Being used to the cold and analytical sound of the RE0 and the warm and bassy sound of the IE8 my first impressions were quite negative. The TF10 had a really 'mechanical' sound...

My Ultimate Ears Triple.Fi 10 Pro Experience

Posted

Pros: Flashy Packaging, Nice 'gun-metal-blue' finish, Unparalleled Sound Quality

Cons: Build Quality, Prone to puncturing

  My Ultimate Ears Triple.Fi 10 Experience with Pics and Video! Overall impression:A+= PackagingA+ =LookA+=  SoundF= Build QualityGravely disappointed with the build quality. I already have puncture points on both wires. But SQ was great. Pictures and Video after the Jump. Finally, today was the day that my TF10s came. I was anxious to see if they had arrived yet so I checked Air21's tracking page. Very accurate actually. It tells you where your package is, and how many transfers its gone through.They came in an Air 21 packageGreat PackagingTF10s!BacksideCandy Case ContentsTF10s out of the boxHERE COME THE PUNCTURES Tsk Tsk Sadly, that was the unit I got.

Great headphones...if you can get them to fit

Posted

Pros: powerful well articulated bass, crystal clear high, seperation

Cons: SIZE/COMFORT, recessed mids, highs can be a bit too much

...everyone's said all that needs to be said about these iems.   One of the best values around imo...if you can get them in your ears.  Once in, they sound great but do have their downsides.  The high and lows are fantasic, both in quantity and quality.  The mids have good quality, from what I can hear of them...quantity is not there though.   Luckily, I been able to find a reasonable seal with some aftermarket tips...barely.  However, they are uncomfortable after more then a couple hours and when they go in/out. Worth the trouble for the acoustics but disappointing that ue would allow problem that is so easily remedied...

A True legend

Posted

Pros: Visceral bass response, clear and powerful.

Cons: Mids are kind of weak

I noticed so much praise around here that my expectations were quite high and I gotta say: I was not disappointed at all. There's little new we can say about such a famous/infamous IEM. I bought a pair to reshell them and try customs so I can't comment about build quality. Not really a fan of V-shaped signatures but this one is special, some people can argue about the overwhelming bass hiding mid-details, but again, the TF10 are really nice! Highly recommend them

Gotta Be Considered A Best Buy!!

Posted

Pros: Sound Quality

Cons: Fit (for some)

I bought these to replace my old friends; the UE Super Fi 5, that broke after 7 yrs due to MY mishandling.  I'll try to keep this short as SO MUCH has been written about these classic earphones!  I'm a longtime audiophile (30+ yrs!).  TT - Linn LP12/Lingo/Ittok IV/Ortofon Blaupunkt, CD - Arcam FMJ CD 23T, Amp - Music Reference RM9 (tube), Preamp - Audio Research LS15 (tube), Phono Preamp - Audio Research PH3 (tube) , Spkrs - Spendor S100, this makes up the bulk of my rig, along with racks, cables, and a few other toys.  I've got an Ol' School headphone rig -  Sennheiser HD600's with a Musical Fidelity tube headphone amp, that I've owned for close to a decade....

An Old Classic

Posted

Pros: Sound Quality, Great for a Basshead & Treblehead, Great For Price That You Can Get Them For

Cons: Recessed Midrange, **DODGY CABLE**

I traded my beloved IE8s for these just less than a week ago. All of this is tested on my HDP-R10, Samsung Galaxy S3 and my Sansa Clip+.  Everything said in this review is how I hear and I am in no way affiliated with UE or against them.  Design and Comfort: I actually really like how these look. Personally, I think that the "Gunmetal Blue" looks very cool. It comes with detachable and easily replaceable cables, which is good because I have never ever come across a worse cable. It is very still and coming from the nice and soft cable of the Sennheiser IE8, the cable and memory wire was definitely a pain to gt used to, but I have already bought a "Dark Lord" cable from a...

Great sound for this price!!

Posted

Pros: Great sound quality and removable cable

Cons: comfort, fit and stock cable quality

It's my first IEM. For this price it sound great and have removable cable. So you can upgrade cable for better sound quality.  but it's not fit and comfort for my ears.

Ultimate Ears Triplefi 10

Pros: Great sound, removable cable

Cons: Cable quality

Audio quality-These things sound awesome. Knock out anything in the price range, compete with Westone 4s and Shure 535. Discontinued, so really low price. Design-These are huge. Really big. If you can get them to fit right, not an issue,though they look a little odd. Comfort-Pretty comfortable. Big though, can't lay down. Isolation-Really good with the included Comply tips.   Two small caveats. The foam tips dirty quickly due to their color, and will need to be replaced as they become saturated with wax. The cable is awful. It retains its shape from packaging, full of kinks. The memory wire by the ear pieces can punture the wire. I love the case that came with these....

Perfect Fit and Perfect Sounding

Posted

Pros: clarity and instrument separation. bass. highs are superba!

Cons: lacks transparency with mp3's even 320. ever so slight sibilance in the vocals sometimes

I must have HUGE ear canals, because with the large silicone tips provided in the box, I got a perfect fit with an impeccable seal! Now i simply get the most amazing sounds ever from an IEM i've owned, and i've owned MANY! I must amend to say that the simply stellar sound quality extends to FLAC (lossless) sources. The TF 10's tend to struggle a bit with mp3's. Even the 320 and V0 quality files. You lose about 10-20% of the sound stage and depth with mp3 files. Still....worth every penny, and I must laugh at those who complain about it being a bad fit or uncomfortable ect ect. I sleep with mine in. As i stated earlier I got an impeccable fit. I love my TF 10's. Now on to the Sennheiser...

Best headphones for the money

Posted
So far they're great...with the Comply tips they isolate very well and are very comfortable as well.  The detail is amazing, and the soundstage is about the best you can expect from a universal IEM.  Separation, as expected with a 3 way crossover high-mid-low setup, is great.  Can't recommend these enough, and at the prices these are going for now you'd have to be crazy not to buy them.
