Agreed, tf10's fit can only be described as atrocious. That many people find it fits better when worn reversed is only further proof of this.

It is indeed a technological marvel when it came out.  What other universal was out at the time with crossovers with mutitple speaker?  Ety has microphonics, but Shure had the ergonomics and fit covered. TF10 is a great sounding iem for the price, and with a Shure like fit, it would help out immensely.  Did Shure or Westone own the rights to the way their fit is?

Something I want to add is that although Shure has the ergonomics, it's always been single bore.  TF10 has 2 bores to separate the lows and the mids/highs.  I'm thinking this may have contributed to the awkward fit design. UE has the patents to multiple bore design by JH.

I love the triple Fi sound but the fit is terrible for doing anything active. Got mine reshelled and I've been working out with them for about 4 years now

Any noticeable changes to the sound?  Did the sound get more detailed or more clarity?  More tight? Imaging differences? I'm guessing the customs has 2 bores.  Just curious what customizing does to it's signature.

I noticed with the Reshell the bass was slightly deeper and more extended, and mids came forward slightly. I've had stock and reshelled TF10s to A&B. That's with very critical listening, otherwise they sounded the same. I have seen other users report the same in some instances.

My experiences of reshelling my TF10's closely mirror yours, except that Phil at Cosmic Ears added a dynamic driver for me to bolster bass performance.

I still find the TF10 very slightly 'mid shy', but certainly don't regret getting them reshelled.

Cosmic do a straight reshell for £100

It's gone up to £125 recently.
