The memory wire was what actually cut through my stock cable. The clear heat shrink tubing on my current cable is much more comfortable and non damaging to the cable. It also holds its shape better.

So I tried the cable from Sunricky, tried another cable from eBay, both failed pretty quickly so I ordered this:
...and it works perfectly with my TF10. The mic is super sensitive, sits at my sternum but everyone can hear me perfectly, and the remote button works flawlessly for voice controls, play/pause music, and answer/disconnect calls.
Most will probably want to file the pins down a bit, but I'm leaving the pins un-filed so I can use the same cable with my FA-4e when I buy them in a few weeks ^_^post #8943 of 95875/27/14 at 7:31am
I love these IEMs sooo much but too bad the cable broke after around 2 months, so I returned them. It was not physically broken, just the right channel gone so it was an internal injury. Biggest regret for me reckon as I couldn't find anything better than them for rock and similar styles of music. These have such unique sound character which I miss so much. If anyone can recommend me something similar, that would be great, as in the end, the fit was crap house.post #8944 of 95875/27/14 at 8:09ampost #8945 of 95875/27/14 at 8:17amQuote:Originally Posted by jml239

My knockabout IEM for the car is a reshelled TF10 through my phone so I can answer calls - Every time I use them, I am reminded about what a great, fun, rock and roll, IEM this is - the emphasized bass and treble are perfect for driving with the window down - and with a custom fit - I the isolation is amazing - the wind noise is negligible. (And I have always been one who regularly checks his mirrors - so as of yet, no issues with isolation being a hindrance to safe driving - not much difference between IEMs and a loud car stereo)
You might consider a reshelled TF10 - has all the positives (even the mids come forward) and none of the negatives - and considering the odd fit on the universal version - they go in in the ear in less than half the time.post #8946 of 95875/27/14 at 8:36am
I'm looking at JH but also the Fischer Amps FA-4E XB; apparently it has an improved version of the TF10 sound.

Hi guys, just want a quick and brutally honest answer.
I traded for a pair of used TF10. They are approximately 3-4 years old, in perfect operating condition, although cosmetically there are visible signs of wear
I am thinking of doing a reshelling for these. Is it worth it? Considering how old they are, does this make the drivers more susceptible to failure?post #8948 of 95875/27/14 at 10:01ampost #8949 of 95875/27/14 at 10:09am
yeap i get the part about the protection. my worry is that the drivers are already old, so they might be bound to fail anyway and render the whole reshelling process pointless and wasted money. I suppose main query is if there is a direct correlation between driver age and driver life? Do drivers have a certain/general functional lifespan, or are they just handling based and purely dependent on how well they are baby-ed?
cheers and thanks for your reply!post #8950 of 95875/27/14 at 12:45pmpost #8951 of 95875/28/14 at 12:51am
Just got my first pair of TF10s, and I actually have a second pair of them on the way. I found the second for an amazing deal so I snagged them as a backup.
I'm liking the sound so far. The bass is awesome, I couldn't believe how nice the sub bass is on these things. I am satisfied with the sound so far, but I do wish the mids were a little more present.
Here are some pics :D

So I pulled my triple.fi out of my hard case today and found the pins were broken off, and stuck in one earpiece. The earpiece is fine, but the pins are stuck in the connector. Any way to get them out or am I SOL?post #8953 of 95875/28/14 at 1:49pmI remember someone fixing a similar problem earlier in this thread...if all else fails, reshell!post #8954 of 95875/28/14 at 1:57pmQuote:
Can you get a grip on them with some needle-nose pliers?
If not, you could try soldering a wire to each pin and pull them out individually. Those are the only solutions I can think of.

Thanks for the input. Unfortunately, the pins broke completely flush with the connector, so no way to wiggle a knife in there. Also couldn't get a wire to solder in, since the interior is filled with plastic. Any solder joint I made attached to both the pin and connector and at the risk of damaging the drivers I decided not to take a chance.
So to cut my losses and not make it worse, I think I'll have to reshell them. Kind of a bummer, but it seems this is pretty common in these earphones, so be careful with those pins!Return HomeBack to Forum: Portable Headphones, Earphones and In-Ear Monitors
