Triple.Fi : Worth It?

post #1 of 7
Thread Starter 
So, in your honest opinions, are the UE Triple.Fi's worth the money? Or is there something better out there for the same, or similar price?

And also, what portable amp would you guys suggest for these phones?

For 1st Q: Definitely yes.

For 2nd Q: Similar price but better? No likely. Sidestepping? Yes. SE530 is worth considering if you are looking for its sound signature.

For 3rd Q: You don't really need an amp for most IEM. TF10 certainly doesn't require an amp to shine. Meier Audio and RSA both have some good amp to choose from. If you have the money, try looking for Pico and iQube.

Yes I found them to be very good, the main problem is if you can get a good seal and get comfortable with them in the ear. For me they where just too big or the wrong shape even after trying many tips and the flip-flop mod so I got rid of them but they sure did sound very good.

They are very well worth it, especially after doing the "Jabada mod". I'm getting great seal and isolation with the mod and using Comply T500s. The isolation is about 85% to 95% of the reference Etymotics with tri-flanges.

You could get a used pair from the market for a great price if you are not very picky.

There are just so many ways to wear/mod it that very few people are unable to get a decent seal.

Also, what is your budget for an amp?

I saw the thread for the Jabada mod. But I don't understand what exactly is being modded or what the purpose of the mod was? Is it to extend the tip further? Or is it the tip itself? And why was a mod needed?

Also, for the amp, I don't want to spend a ridiculous amount. Around $100 I'd say.

The "Jabada" mod is to extend the canalphone nozzle further out so a sleeve can go deeper into the ear canal than the stock canalphone allows. This is a must for some of us who have deep ears where the stock sleeve just will not stay in the ear.

The "Jabada" mod not only works with the UE line of canalphones, but also with all canalphones that may need extending.
