Yeah I understand u had 2 of your UE1 went bad,that's not good......you sure only the 3.5mm jack side went bad?for both? even if the memory side or pins or any part of the cable goes wrong the sound will not be good on that particular channel,for that matter. I had mine into same issue and found the legit reason,posted my findings,fix on this forum. if you are 100% sure on the jack/strain relief on that, then it is more likely you mostly slide into your pocket with or w/o device? just my guess. :D

 

we'll be happy if FiiO would've already heard this and may be new RC-UE3 will have 90 deg angled jack against straight, next year. Again FiiO NEVER announced the said model but just a small expectation from us.:biggrin:

Yes it was at the RCA connector, even had a Dark Lord cable break at that point. I detail cars, so it seems being in my pocket with any straight RCA connector is bad for me. I now have a cable with an angle and its been fine. Superior cable made by Ted who posts here, at a amazingly good price.

Do yourself a favor and get the Earsonics SM3v2 :)

 

I have the 900 and the UM3X and unless the 4 is a big departure from the sonic signature I love the SM3v2 the best.

 

I'm not really interested n getting an UE900 or W4r.  I was just having fun...and I may have been having fun under the influence of a certain beverage that comes from Ireland.

 

 

I am possibly looking to make an IEM purchase in the $500 range.  Now already owning a very good triple ba I am thinking that maybe I want to check out a hybrid.

The Astrotec AX-60 are looking really nice to me.

I have not heard them but I from what I remember the Fischer Audio Silver Bullet and the Hisound Audio BA100 might be a close to the TF10 in terms of sound sig. I have the BA100 on its way and will review it in the next few weeks,

Anyone recommend good third party tips for the tf10? Prefer silicone
post #8470 of 9023

I suggest the Sony hybrid tips. They have worked well for me

post #8471 of 9023

i use my old ue400 silicone bud which fit my ear, none of tf10 buds provided fit my ear.

i have a few pairs of sony hybrids i should be getting the tf10 sometime this week, i will try those and see how they sound.

I've been using Comply's for a few years, recently the wax guard Isolations.  I started to wonder if they were cutting off the highs, got a set of the Sony's (cheaper by far as well) and boy do I have strong highs (and stronger bass) now.  Running TF-10's with HeadPhoneLounge Hybrid cable from a Colorfly C3 through a C&C amp set on flat.  The upper treble is just this side of hissy, and the bass is fuller across the soundstage.  Gonna try them on a walk (that's when I use them) and see how they sound with all the movement (so far, I've just used them while sitting).
