Dont think it will be anything like the EX series, its a balanced armature design

 

only seen one review so far, apparently the XBA-3 sounds pretty much exactly like the TF10. i guess my only option is the TF10 as its the only one within my already very stretched budget!!

You really can't go wrong with the 10's I love mine though I'm still buying more IEM's, its my addiction.

i know they are supposed to be very good, im just concerned i might not like it if the bass is too subdued. i didnt like the muddy and overpowering bass of the CX300's, the EX300's from sony i have now are much more balanced....im just worried that the TF10's will be too neutral. I dont listen much to classical music, and i feel neutral earphones are best suited for that genre...

one more thing- is it possible to get a replacement cable for the TF10 that has a J shape (neck chain type)? where one side goes around the neck?

After asking just last night, I looked around the local forum for a amazon imported pair and bought it immediately. It cost me 250 SGD(192USD) which was close to Amazon price( I have the Amazon receipt).

 

Impressions:  TF10(comply tips)

 

Fit: I'm one of the lucky ones I guess to get a good fit, A little hard to get the first fit though.

 

Treble:

The TF10 I realise has less treble quantity and probably a little less "sharp" compared to the ER-4s treble, if you have a fair bit of bad recordings the TF10 makes for a pretty forgiving IEM compared to the ETY's analytical sound. 

 

Mids:

A little recessed, I find the sound signature resembling my M50s but with less weakness than the M50s has. Guitars and vocals still sound pretty darn good on it though.I hope this will not be an issue with some time on it.

 

Bass:

The TF10s pack some bass compared to the much less bass quantity of the ER-4S. Can't really compare it to the ER-4S but the bass on the TF10s is tight and controlled compared to my ATH-M50s.

 

Overall:

I like my TF10s so far, nothing seriously wrong with them, I would like more treble on these though. Resolution on the high end is not as detailed as Ety's ER-4S. Overall I would prefer the Ety sound a lot more but at the current prices, the TF10 is just a heck lot better buy. 

On the side note, anyone has reshelled their TF10s with extra drivers? I saw a 6 driver custom reshelled TF10s on sale on the local forums yesterday. I wonder how do they sound?

If you use any other tips besides the Comply's you'll get more treble and the mids will open up a bit more also.  For me I like using the Comply's because with EDM it makes everything sound a little bit more mellow but still have that energy you want at the same time.

 

I've been wondering about the extra drivers in a re-shell to and I'm thinking thats going to be my next big purchase because I want to go with the 6 driver up grade.  I do love the sound of the 10's as they are but if the extra drivers bring the mids out more with some added bass and treble that would make them just perfect imo.

Edit: Was driving them out of my DACs HO, out of the O2 the TF10 treble was there, not as harsh as the ER4 but certainly there.

TF10s are great but...

 

Does anyone know of a similar sounding iem that is easier to fit? I can get a decent seal with the smallest tips, but it's taking to long for me to insert them on the go.

Do you need isolation? FX700s are a great upgrade over the TF10. The presentation is different than the TF10s tough. But the treble is very extended, bass is deeper than TF10 and has more quantity & quality. Mids are more detailed but will do better with a mic-centric source. IE80s are also a great option and are way better than the TF10 IMO.

Well I can't think of any that are going to be as cheap as the TF10 is now but the Westone W3 and Shure SE353 are the 2 that come to mind.

Also I just purchased the JVC HA-FXT90 yesterday and while it doesn't have the same sound signature it is a very good IEM thats a bit cheaper than the TF10, you can get them fro around $135 with shipping.

You are going to like FXT90. Still waiting for mine pair to get from replacement. Also purchased TF10 yesterday :) Hope I'll enjoy them and they will be a good addition to FXT90.

They are far from neutral to me, the bass is plentiful, yet not bloated or overpowering, the highs are crystal clear and the mids are not bad either. Trust me, the bass is not going to be subdued unless you have a terrible fit.

I got a pair of these on BF and I LOVE THEM! But I fear that they will only fuel my addiction for buying IEMs lol >.>

I hope so after reading through the appreciation thread it seems like they'll be great for techno, trance and other forms of edm.  I just hope mine aren't gong to have any problems like you and others have had but its good that AccessoryJack has a 6 month warranty.  If I like as much as I think I will I'm going to keep them and my TF10's and sell my Ety HF5 and ClarityOnes to help pay for a TF10 re-shell.
