I have no problems using my iQube at the low gain setting with my Triple.Fi. Sounds great and quite to me.

Just for report, the Triple fi hiss much less than Super.fi.

awesome earphone, not regretting the purchase one bit. just listening to a lot of my favorite songs again, and i am amazed that i am picking up new things from these...what a step up from akg k81 djs..

Yes, new parts and details are so much more easily apparent!
And what I love best is that I feel like I'm just listening to the music, not listening to the headphones, so it's easy to relax and listen for hours.
And so far, Trips are easy to use in bed lying on my side -I just cup a hand under my head & it's fine (they really don't stick out as far as I'd feared - maybe my ears were designed for UEs!)

Not regretting buying them even a teensy little bit either

That is the only "real" drawback of the TF's, and for that mater many of the "universal" IEM's. My audiologist was jocking with me that the so called universal IEM's only "trully" fit about 5-10% of the population - there is nothing universal in that!. The sellers of the IEM's know this - and this is why they attempt to please many folks by including lots of different tips with their universal IEM's. Even then, like it is happening to you and I, none of the tips really work well, which according to my audiologist is "very" common.

That is the reason I went with the custom tips:

Like with custom IEM's I had to have them re-fit (basically my made at home impressions were poor - even the more reasons to have a professional audiologist make these!), but they fit great!

That being said, it is still cheaper to get true custom IEM's such as the Livewires or the newer SuperFreqs (I have these on order as well!), so you definitely have several options

Did you try the Comply T400 foamie tips?

I guess price DOES matter even to us Head-Fi audio-holics.

One year ago (after TFP's had been out several months) you could barely get anyone to comment on these. Now almost 16 months after release they are as popular as ever.

I had mine for quite a while now, still love 'em but I agree that the confort factor is lacking... I'm about to get the UE11 whenever my budget gets there...

That is also my looooong term goal as well, once I win the lottery, or something similar happens

Can I ask what sort of burn time is require before these IEM start to sound 'sweet'? The reason I'm asking is because I bought one of these to replace the E4C I lost recently, and if I'm totally honest about them, they're not that good

I have about 20 hours use on them and the SQ is no where near as good as the E4C I've lost. The mid range is non existence, and vocal is recessed. Instrument separation is also non existence!!!

I'm so disappointed in them that I'm thinking of replacing it with the 530s

IMHO, the UE Triple.fi 10 Pros are great right out of the box, unlike my AKG 701 or Audio Technica W5000s, both of which needed over 100-hours.

Many say that balanced armature don't really burn-in. Are you getting a proper seal or try all the different tips?

Sorry, can't help: not at all my experience with TF10 but one mans' meat ...I guess.

If you find zero midrange, vocals recessed & separation non-existent, what do you hear from your Trips? I too pretty much found them great out of the box, & only fiddled between silicon, flanges & olives to get the sweet spot (flanges lost, for me personally).
