Here's all the shirt clip you'll ever need:

Funny stuff.

They're over the ear. Microphonics with the TF10 is not an issue at all. It was the X10's with all the noise.

Figured that (the TF10s are OTE). That is one way to eliminate noise. I just don't get the same issue with the X10s, using the clip. I do hear footsteps, which are different issue from microphonics. But whatever noise I get, the music overpowers it, and I don't listen extremely loud. I think the clip is a solution, if you use it properly (right spot on the cable). No matter, we both have found IEMs we love.

I'm curious about a direct SQ comparison to UM2 since they are described so similarly (heavy bass, warm, forward vocals, etc).

I would have thought someone here would own both. In any case, I used to own the UM2 and don't recall it being in the same class as the X10 by any stretch of the imagination. That said, my source and amplification are far, far better now than they were a year ago when I had the UM2, so my less than stellar experiences with the UM2 might just have come down to that.

Anyway, I have a second-hand UM2 coming in the next couple of weeeks, so I will find it interesting to compare them.

Just got these a few days ago. SQ-wise I'm pretty happy since they're pretty much exactly as everyone else described them: lots of good bass, forward mids, slightly recessed highs etc.

Having come from the Denon C700's, the Image's cord is much thinner and loves to get tangled though. The build quality doesn't look too comforting to me either. Probably won't be a problem for anyone else though since I tend to abuse my headphones.

I wish they came with the two piece cord like the Shures. It would have made for much better cord management.

Really? I thought the cord on the Shure's was hateful. Thick, heavy and the added weight of the connector always pulled down. Not too mention the cinch for behind the head was completely useless.

If anything I wish Klipsch used the same type of cord as Sleek, well the Sleek cord without the bling. Detachable and replaceable would be preferable but even something that didn't tangle and inspired a little more confidence would be nice.

The thing I'm looking for, though, is usage with my PTH device. I use it all the time and it clips to my shirt. A very long cable makes for an annoying situation. That's another thing besides the great sound quality that I like about the Denons I have, the split cord. The D-Jays use it also and it make a big difference.

I couldn't use the PTH, maybe in a situation where something like that was absolutely necessary but otherwise I found it had too much of a detrimental affect on the sound.

Yeah, I know what you mean. It's especially weird listening to people talk in a familiar setting and moving your head in any direction brings about no change in the sound. lol But it is great when you have your canalphones seated just right and would rather not take them out to hear someone say something.

That's not really what I meant, I was referring to the effect it has on music. Inserting attenuators and other things like that usually have a detrimental effect on the music in one way or another.
