post #8791 of 9120

My Ted's Headphonelounge  cable is holding up very well.  I fast-walk 2 miles daily.  Some microphonics, I deal with it by putting the cable inside my shirt.  It's a bit pricey (around $100) but it lasts.  Had it since July with no issues.

post #8794 of 9120

anyone else consider reshelling theirs?  I have a stuck pin in my right iem; if someone is going to get them reshelled...help a fellow head-fier out and trade me right ear pieces since it's going to be reshelled anyway.  Please let me know thanks!

thatds a good idea, you should make a WTT in the headphone section you could probably find someone faster that way

Can I just say how incredible the TF10s bass is? Right now I've got them in my Nexus 5 with the DSP Manager bass boost maxxed out and the 16 and 62 bands on the EQ pumped 9-10 dB listening to Infected Mushroom and its pretty nuts. These things can deliver some insane bass. It literally sounds like a rave in my head right now.

He's having a TF10 moment! I was listening to some Mistabishi a few nights ago, just from Sansa Zip with TF10, I still rate it one of the most fun experiences you can have (TF10 / EDM) they have really good PRaT, the somewhat metallic mid range does an excellent job of reproducing electronic music.

Here's one track.

OK, today I was listening to a mix folder on my C3/C5 on my walk and up came Stevie Wonder singing Mary Wants to be a Superwoman- the bass parts, even though I have all settings at Flat, were superb.  Every time I read about something "better" than the TF 10's, I listen to mine and think, "why?"

Even owning some other IEM a little more pricey I think the same thing sometimes, especially if you've fully adjusted to the sound of one earphone in particular for a long time. I could probably promise you if you were to listen to my RDB Mini or Dunu DN-1000 they would sound quite strange for the first 10-15 minutes (probably very bright) as your brain is so accustomed to one signature.

I do believe TF10 are at a point where you're accomplishing a good dose of everything such as clarity, detail, soundstage. Though once you've adjusted for example my RDB imagine the mid range sounding even clearer, more clarity, vocals reaching out further, a lot more air in the upper regions. Hearing numerous samples otherwise invisible with TF10 despite the marketing claims (especially micro detail).

To me when I switch to TF10 after a higher end IEM, they sound rather veiled and compressed, (closed in) like they're rather warm, or someone turned the water flow down or shut a window. Give it 10-15 minutes to clear up (adjust) they sound much better. I think the main thing is (from my experience) if you don't try the higher end stuff you will never know that Maria Mena's voice has that grind that touches your soul, or that hidden water droplet just off to your left in an ambient track TF10 doesn't uncover. 

Sometimes I wish I never found that hidden detail and other extra goodies.

Not to mention the DAC that Snapdragon has included with the 800 is quite impressive.  It outshines my iPad Mini via headphone jack and line-out.

So can anyone recommend sturdy cables that will last a while that don't cost 100$? Ones that will survive moving around my ear while I run?

 

Also, I'm looking for foams that will be less prone to playing around in my ear while I'm on the move. I have to constantly adjust the rubber ones...

If i were you, i would just buy a meelec M6 for workouts and get a decent cable to use indoors and travels.......

If you were me you'd enjoy music the most while running and wouldn't want to miss good sound quality as it happens. :)

Well, TF10 does have detachable cables for a reason, why don't you try one of these as an experiment, it's quite cheap almost in the disposable bracket far as cables go. From my searches over the Internet I doubt you'll find much cheaper than these cables. (I have no idea if you follow this thread, these were posted a few pages back)

Just got it. Thanks.

 

Hope this one lasts more than 3 months!
