My RE-400's and RE-00's are great for some things but rather lacklustre in comparison to the B2's that spoiled me with Comply tamed detail.

For the £130 (current equivalent of 160 USD), what are the best choices out there and at that price, is the TF10 still one of those?

 

£130 new is a fair deal. If used, they're a bit on the expensive side.

 

I've been watching TF10 sales on eBay for a few years now, but never reached the wallet to get one (yet). I might one day if I find a really good price, according to some it's still a very competitive product.

So the plastic bit where the tip goes on finally came off on the left earpiece of my trusty old TF10's. Not sure what happened and can't even find it to glue it back on. As I understand the only way to save those are to get them reshelled into CIEMs, which I'm not totally inclined to do due to the cost associated. They still work just fine so if anyone's interested in having a pair to reshell, they'll go up on the FS forum at some point later today or tmr.

Always impressive to see all the components of a multi-driver setting.

This far, compared to stock 530 it sounding more open, and more v shaved.
All normal sounding, and I like it.
Stock 530 has warmer house sound

Well I now always use touchscreen glue for all my modded iem/earbuds.
Easy to apply, clear glue, and easy to clean up the residue.
Just make sure you clamp the glued parts for one night until it perfectly sticking.

Thanks for the info.

£130 is a manufacturer refurb, full retail package. Tempting... Especially as I loved the BA speed and I'm a mostly rock/metal man with some violin-heavy stuff, pop and not bass heavy electronic type music.

Part of the casing of my TF10s cracked so I'm thinking about reshelling. Are these IEMs still worth reshelling?

Also where are some good places to do it. I'm in the US.

 

I'm looking at InEarz and UM, but anywhere else? And what's with the discerning price difference in the services. I'm seeing a range of $125 to $300 usd.

I went to InEarz to do mine about 3 years ago.  Still enjoying it till today.  It's my profile picture!  At the time InEarz was the cheapest so I went with them.  I don't really see a difference where you get your TF10s reshelled.  No matter who you go with, it's not like they're changing the drivers so they'll likely sound the same.  If you were worried about Inearz because they're one of the cheaper ones, don't be.
