post #7831 of 8892

I'd be interested in the GR07 if it's better than the TF10. I've heard the Monster Turbine Pro Gold, and the Shure SE535, and neither holds a candle to the TF10 in my opinion.

I agree with you on the part where the se535 can't compete with the tf10.
But I can't assure you that the gr07 is better. But many have compared this pair of iem to be better than dual BAs out there! Plus I haven't got the chance to own it first hand, hard to grab hold of a good pair here. So take my words with a pinch of salt. The tf10s are definitely a pair worth keeping though!

I used the TF for half a year, but everytime I used them I became crazy. 1st for that crappy cable, very strong but too tangle; 2nd for their big size. The're simply pull off continually.

 

Somethimes I've found the right fit but I need something more comfortable now dt880smile.png

 

I sold my TF yesterday and I'll miss them redface.gif


Oh my what a shame haha. What did you replace them with? Heard the GR07s are quite a good in comparison with the tf10s. 


My new Turbine Pro Copper should arrive tomorrow smily_headphones1.gif that's my choice, for 182€+8€ shipping cost on Amazon

Ok I will do

I was looking for a multiple armature IEM's.. but in most of the case the price was too high. I'll try the Copper and, if they don't sound good to me, I'll send them back and I'll buy something else biggrin.gif

The GR07 and TF10 are nothing alike. Not only is the GR07 a single, bio-cellulose dynamic driver, compared to the TF10's triple BA's, they are nothing alike in sound presentation either.

 

The TF10's have a heavily accentuated 'V' shaped sound sig with prominent mid-bass and treble. The GR07's are a much more balanced sound, but have an ability to reach down for sub-bass that the TF10's do not. The GR07's are smoother, and the TF10's have a more sparkly treble.

 

I have both of these IEM's, and indeed enjoy both for different reasons, but trying to compare the two is difficult as they are totally different. The TF10's are also twice the price (in the UK) of the GR07 and they are most certainly not twice the IEM.

 

I would say, if the music you listen to, favours the TF10's sound, such as classic rock, and some types of EDM, then that may be the choice for you. However, the GR07 is balanced enough that you can throw pretty much any genre of music at it, and it will sound good. If I had to choose one of them over the other, it would be the GR07, as being the best "all rounder".

TF10 will be fine for most of those genres except where it needs to pull sub-bass. It is not good at resolving sub-bass (indeed many BA's struggle with presenting sub-bass properly), even when EQ is applied. It is fine for overall bass though, and indeed will have more bass than your SE215 and the TF10's treble presentation is good too.  I used to have an SE215 too at one point and the TF10's sound is nothing like the Shure sound that has quite forward mids, and it will sound very recessed in the mids area if you are coming from Shure IEM's.

 

I lost my SE215's and didn't replace them, as I felt that the GR07 or the TF10 did everything I wanted and indeed better than the SE215. We are not comparing like with like though as again the TF10 are more than 3 times the price of the SE215 in the UK, and again, we are also comparing BA's to a dyamic driver - they present sound in a different way.

UM3X maintains many characteristics of the SE215 including general tonal balance (focus on bass and mids with laid back treble), while improving upon it very noticeably in every way but bass impact, which still has quite a bit of body and a decent punch to it; just not quite as strong.

For you guys who own the TripleFi 10, could you guys do me a favor and check the 3.5mm jack for any numbers or markings? Had some problems with mine and contacted customer service. They told me there should be a PID number or some sort of code imprinted but mine is compeletely blank.

 

Cheers

I once spoke with them and they also told me to check for a number. It had one on it, but the set I have now does not have any numbers. The CSR that I spoke with said after telling him the numbers they were still under warranty. I swapped them out with the person I bought them from instead of going through Logitech. The set I have now are the ones he swapped for me and are the ones without the numbers.

My Copper's arrived this  morning. The first impression wasn't very good. I'm unlucky and even with the copper I had some issue finding the right fit and tip (also due to the huge selection of different tips which the Copper has). Anyway since I found my perfect fit, this headphones has started sounding VERY well. Sound is very warm and balanced, great bass (IMHO better than TF's), mid (IMHO better than TF's) and treable (Non as good as the TF's). I think Monster could have put in the box less different type of tip but with more size for each. I can actually use 3 pair of tips..
 
Yes another thing.. the carrying case and the 6,5 inch adapter were defective and Amazon will ship a replacement  soon (a new pair of Copper!)

Hmm that sounds like what used to like! Massive bass-head in the past haha. Sort of deviated when i picked up a the SE425 for a decent price! but TF10 seems to be able to give me what i want now, a little of bass and high trebles! Furthermore, I've just received my Studio V's today and my gosh, how do they sound awesome with the TF10?!

I agree with you phlashbios, they are definitely very different from each other despite the SE215 being one of the 'bassier' iems compared to the SE315 and SE425s. Would like to ask, does the bass in GR07 sort of covers the highs/mids? my past experience with dynamics are usually so. Perhaps it's time to give it a shot!

Yea , perhaps the TF's has a crisper and have a slightly better instruments separation, but I'm actually prefer the MTPC because they are easy to use and more enjoyable. Their bass are not properly for "Basshead" but are really GOOD and HEAVY! really better than TF's.  Maybe the TF's bass are more "punchy".
