post #7696 of 9069

Hi all, 

What could I expect from a pair of refurbished triple fis bought from ebay?

 

Will / should they sound like new or different somehow?

 

How can I be sure that a good job has been done on the refurbishment?

 

It feels crazy to buy second hand headphones, but I am reluctant to buy new ones right now, particularly with the inflated price that the triple fis sell for now that they are scarce.

 

Need some re-assurance...

If they are manufacturer refurbished, you could expect them to be like brand new except maybe without the packaging.

Check and see if they come with a warranty, that can give you some peace of mind.

Do they not have replacement cables for the Triplefi 10vi with the microphone purchased before September 2010? Can't seem to find it here

Any recommendations? Would like the microphone, and all I'm really seeing are cables without mics

Only seeing the original manufacturer cables... and well, those didn't turn out too well for me. Would like some aftermarkets, but can't seem to find any with the microphone

I think he wants upgrade cable with mic. Never seen any myself.

Ahh there is Beats Audio that makes them but for very very very expensive prices, and a HK dude who does them but not anymore for unknown reasons...

post #7705 of 9069

I guess these are my only option? Only ones I see with mic control... but I'm afraid they'll just rip apart like my last original manufacturer ones

Hi guys,

 

Any tips that I should be getting to improve the bass and not affecting the highs ( especially) and the mids as I tried the complys I didn't really like it and wear due to usage is quite frequent.

I also tried the sony hybrids didn't really like it.

 

Basically, pls recommend one that will improve the fit, the bass while not intefering the highs.

 

 

Thanks

Hello, guys!
I'm very happy with my triple.fi 10 about four years now. I like the V shape sound, crisp hights and deep bass...
Now I'm searching for PORTABLE On Ear / Over Ear CLOSED headphones, with the same (or better, of course) sound signature and good isolation.
Money is no object.
My rig is Teclast T51 + Corda 2Stepdance amp.
Any recomendations?
Thanks.
(sory about my english :))

Audio Technica ATH-ES7, portable on ear and only about $100

ES7 seems like a downgrade to me from my brief listen. Now ES10 on the other hand biggrin.gif
