Thank you, Clieos.

What a nice thread.

I ordered a bunch of "fake" Sony Hybrid tips from lostearbuds on Ebay. These are really pretty high quality. The sound quality from these pairs compared to the genuine hybrids are exactly the same! The genuines do feel a little better in comfort. However, considering 9 pairs of mix and match are 6 bucks and that for some reason, you can't buy a pack of sony hybrids with the same size (seriously, it's basically 8 dollars for a tip.... I can't believe Sony hasn't released single size packs yet) , I think the fakes are the way to go. Now if there was a way to get cheap Comply tips...

 

Thanks for the thread/review!

I've posted this is a separate thread as well, but this seems an appropriate place for it:

 

 

Hi All,

 

After using TF10s for a little over two years, the stock cable started failing (bending the cable even slightly at the connector caused one of the channels to drop out). This quickly got massively annoying, so after reading reviews on the RC-UE1 cable, I decided to take a shot on it (only $30, right?).

 

The RC-UE1 is awesome... built like a tank, no microphonics, and very flexible / lack of memory. However, there is one issue... no memory wire / ear guides near the tips. This means that, when walking around / moving my head, the IEMs tend to just slide out over time. Sitting still is no problem, but they just slooowly drift out, regardless of the tips used, if I'm moving. I've tried all the stock tips, as well as some cheap double flanges I have from the RE-2, and also have Sony Hybrids. The Hybrids are the best (and are what I used with the stock UE cable), but even these slide out pretty easily (all sizes). Comply / foam is not an option, since I need to be able to remove / insert the IEMs pretty quickly.

 

Any ideas?

The easiest fix is try to find yourself an ear guide.

Not much actually. It is definitely firmer than the regular Hybrid, but I already get really good fit on the regular and the foamed Hybrid doesn't bring much difference.
