Phonak Audeo (PFE) Appreciation Thread - Page 178

post #2656 of 2852
I've just taken an inventory of my PFE filters and have 7 black (2 may be damaged) and 9 gray. I think I have enough filters on hand to last many years. Perhaps, picking up the 122 series was the best move for me? I can buy a generic earphone hard case on ebay for $2 which will likely offer more protection than the soft pouch Audeo case. I was wondering, is the remote included with the 122s permanently attached to the cable? I keep my Cowon J3 in my shirt pocket, so I don't really need a remote or pause button for my PFEs. Feedback would be appreciated. Thanks!

Ugh! Thanks for the information. I really wish the microphone/remote/whatever it is, was not permanently attached to the PFE 122/132s.

That's why I bought a pfe112 and then a pfe012 as a backup.  Identical earphone, but the 012 comes with black filters and no ear guides.  I just use my grey filters in it and it looks cooler because it's all black. ha

I bought 2 sets of 122s and like many others did not realize they extra lacked filters, but you can always buy a set of your preferred filters from the Audeo store for the $20 you saved over the 132. That way, you get an extra 3 or 4 sets of your preferred filters for future use.

That's clever. Up until Wednesday, I thought the each model of PFE had unique qualities. It is interesting to know that the model number is only used to identify the included accessories.

It seems this is the best price on a pair of pfe 012's (65 US). You may not get all of the extras but you get free shipping. Link

Wow, that is better deal than the SoundEarphones sale.

If I didn't have my 122s on the way, I would go for this deal!

If anyone is interested in the 132's send me a pm, I Just received them this week but since I will be upgrading my 4s to a s4 or note in October I really don't need the mic and apple controls.

If anyone in the Austin, TX area is looking for a pair of PFE 122s, I'll sell you the pair I should receive tomorrow for $79.

Buyer must pick up. Please send me a PM.

 

Thank You!

Should be samsung galaxy s4, that's why he does not need 132's apple controls.

 

I got 132 during recent sale and got impressed with SQ...it motivated me to get 232 also. Now I have both..they sound great but I need suggestion on tips that isolote better than stock tips.

oh, i see.  i was going to say, I find the pfe 1xx series an 'upgrade' from the westone 4r. lol  much more neutral and clear. 232 is excellent if you want more bass, but the highs are a little more boosted than I prefer, but great to have both to get the best of both worlds...

post #2669 of 2852
Sorry for the misunderstanding, yes the Galaxy S4 or Note 2..maybe 3 if it is out by then.

For 65 dollars these would make some awesomely cheap ciems through Fisher Audio. I think they charge under 100 don't they? Plus the cable would be upgraded as well. Do these things ever straighten out?

Any of the PFE series should be then as they are all the same but with different filters. I'm going to email Fisher and see if they they would be able to put the pfe in a ciem and build it so that the filters would be interchangeable with the original phonak tool.
