FWIW, the Monster gel Supertips are my favorite with the TF10. Very clear sound with huge (and realistic) soundstage. For a quick and easy fit warm the tips up first by wrapping a finger around it for 30-40 seconds before inserting it into your ear.

Hey if I am not too late for the party, I think I have some standard UE tips and I am in Sydney... Just let me check when I get home after Boxing Day?

Hi Adrain,

We've already organized and I assume oldudde has posted them, as last I heard they were all packed up and almost on there way. Thanks very much for the offer though, it;s a wonderful thought and very generous of you.

Enjoy your Christmas evening. :)

Boxing day, you have a day where you get to go beat people up? Man we need that here BADLY.

Guess I'm sticking with ear tips.  Every audiologist I've called (7-8 of them) wants $70/85 per ear.  I don't want to reshell my TF 10s THAT much, especially with the cost of the reshelling on top of this.  If I start driving all over LA (Irvine, for instance) for cheaper,  it'll be hours in traffic plus gas.  I'll just keep getting Comply tips.  Oh well. :D

You could always go the DIY kit and try yourself.

Probably best to avoid sticking something in my ear and letting it harden.  :L3000:

 

"Danger, Will Robinson."

 

If I go to Disneyland for a couple of days, I may pm you for your guy's name, as then I could take advantage of being over there (I'm on the coast, in Ventura Co).

I still dont know why they're charging so much in your area. I went to get mine done this morning and it only took 10 minutes of the audiologist time. I was in and out within 15 minutes

Not even a moneyed area here.  I've tried the ones recommended by UE and others chosen at random.  All about the same.  Maybe it's county-wide price fixing?    In any event, I don't feel comfortable sticking stuff in my ears on my own.  So Comply for the near future.  If anyone on this thread knows of someone close to Ventura County, please let me know.  Unfortunately, Irvine is a real schlep from here.  I was going to look into ones in Santa Barbara, but that seems counter-intuitive, as the place is rich-rich.

I really like the sound on my TF10 but I'm tired of the comfort issues i have with them. I'm one of the unlucky ones I guess. Has anyone had theirs reshelled by kozee or um or inearz? Does it mess with the sound too much? Just curious if it's worth the bother or whether it's time to  sell them and maybe give ue900 or westone a shot.

Kozee = run away, InEarZ = HECK YES. Sound stays the same, you just get the fit correct, not to mention a custom look that YOU want.

post #8607 of 9048
I would def say inearz just get good mold impressions from the start so fit issues don't arise
post #8608 of 9048

Inearz!  Kozee are you nuts??  Noone has sent anything to them in a long time for a good reason!  Inearz will treat you right!

UM fit and quality is good, but i dont know about the changes in the sound since I went for the upgrade option instead. Just in case you change your mind, here is what i did to get the good fit for TF10

I used sony tips and decored shure olive. If it feels too tight in your ear, cut the back of the olive bit by bit until you get the right fit.

You do not have to cut it uniformly, just cut a bit at the part where it is uncomfortable. Hope this helps

End result, less thumping noise while you are walking,comfortwise I found it is the best for me
