It takes a bit of force, but be very very careful!

Anyone know (apart from Jaben) where I can get a modified ES2 cable, as I really want one!

you could always do it yourself, it isn't very hard... didn't you do one previously?

i did, but it didnt fit my TF10 for some reason, so not sure if i did it wrong - it fit the sf5 tho (which is now sold and sent off with the es2 cable)

Responding to comments earlier about amping and fit, I checked my Triples unamped for the first time today, much better for me with the Hornet in line although okay even without it.
Got the Complys today and even though i had no real comfort problems-they were better fitting, slightly better seal and more comfortable. Even stock though the Triples were head and shoulders more comfortable than my Shure E3cs. I was worried about the fit because i am a wimp for comfort while listening to music and with these no problem and the Complys are even a more gentle step to take.

Yeah, you need to shave off part of the connector on the cable (so that'll be the male part...) for it to fit in any of the UE earphones.

I wonder if anyone has tried the Triple_fi's with the TTVJ portable Millett? I am using them right now with my home Millett (and the MicroDAC which seemes to suit it better than USB Monica).

The Triple-Fi's tube up beautifully.

I'd love to try the Millet, but I'm afraid of the microphonics since I would be using it on the go (walking, commuting).

I've been pulling on the cable plug where it inserts into the IEM but it almost feels as if something is going to break. Are the wires supposed to be this difficult to detach?

OK gang--stupid question time: why are you pulling off the cables from the earpieces?? I simply put the "L" earpiece into my right ear and the "R" earpiece into my left ear. So OK, now the singer is in the left instead of the right ear, or the players in the symphony are reversed. At least the Triples are waaay more comfortable. So will try your way. Hope I don't break a cable!~!

If a big, clumsy oaf like me can change the cables over, then anyone can, trust me, I'm like a bull in a china shop and I found it easy.

Agreed, a good amp makes these great IEMs sound even better, but they work well straight out of an iPod or iPhone. They're far superior to the stock iBuds and better than most noise cancelling circumaural cans, IMHO.

Don't pull on the cable! I did it and I made a big mistake.

I'd like to join the TF10P appreciation band wagon, so please convince me. I listened to the SF5Pro and I found them very bright, I easily heard the 8KHz peak and I found them bright and fatiguing. Regarding comfort... well I think I could live with them.
From that experience I've come to think that the TF would be also bright, less peak at 8KHz but rolled-off low end. I can't help thinking that UM2 or Atrios would be more neutral, comfy and to my liking. I'm kind of "neutral" guy and I like balanced sound from top to bottom. If from midbass (80Hz) to mid highs at 10KHz they're balanced enough, I'd love them. Do you think I'd end up digging the Tri fis?

Regards.

I don't agree with you, but if that's what you hear in the S.fi, then you'll hate the T.fi also.

strange, if it fits the SF5 it should fit the TF10...
