IEMs reshelled into Custom Molds $80 in the USA (TripleFi 10, SE530, etc.) from FISHER HEARING - Page 188

What's your opinion on Fisher cables? Right now I'm using sunricky's cable, which sounds great, but the over-the-ear plastic is fixed (cannot be modified to fit your ear fit). So since I am thinking of finally getting my Triple.fi 10 Pros remolded, I am looking at the best cable to use it with.

 

Thanks,

Allow me to recommend head-fier ReNnxz and his cables. I purchased a hyrbid cable with RA Oyaide connector for around $50 that is SOOOO sweet with my remolded TF10s. No cable noise, great SQ, awesome-looking quad braid, very inexpensive, and he'll build you just about anything you'd want.

I don't have very good experiences with custom made cables. Any company cables recommended?

WTF? I just said I don't trust custom made cables, so why do you reply with the same reply as above?

Fisher uses the same cable as the Westone type cable iirc. That's a pretty good cable as it is but if you want a different braid the UE cable pre 2010 is also good. I really like the UE cable I have for the UERM. It's the same braid except just a different connector pre and post 2010.

Sorry, I didn't clarify. He's the representative of a COMPANY entitled Nocturnal Audio.

Hi folks, I've had a set of reshelled Triplefi10s in the desk drawer for a few years and though I'd let you guys know about my experience. I got excellent customer service from Fisher on these. i had to send them back a few times, and each time they were turned around quickly. The sad thing is that my TF10s never sounded the same...... They became darker and bloated sounding, and despite messing with different filters and sending them back, I never got that silky extended high end back. I borrowed a second pair to compare and confirm this. I also noticed a few severe resonances in the lower mid-range. The fit was great and I'm sold on the idea of customs, but can't recommend reshelling something not intended to be custom

I'm about to send off a pair of TF10's to Inearz and have done a bit of research (deep reading) and found your impression an outlier. Not to say your impression isn't valid, but it isn't that common a complaint. When you sent them back, was it refit related? Or just sound related? 

 

There have been numerous TF10's reshelled by them. Their Facebook page is littered with TF10's - business is good. I am hoping mine don't return without a semblance of the sparkle they are renowned for.

 

I sold a perfectly good pair and found I missed them - I have a hell of a time getting them in my ears, but bought them back figuring custom was the way to go.

 

Anyone else have TF10's done that kept the TF10 signature?

I know. I did a lot of research too and found the same consensus.... I'm also very particular. I was just reading about how balanced armature drivers are designed to press against a certain volume of captured air, and that this is why insertion depth affects some phones so dramatically....  (http://rinchoi.blogspot.com/2010/05/how-deep-do-you-insert-you-er4.html) it could have been an issue with the drivers ending up further from the ear drum and thus having a larger cavity to deal with. Anyway, I wish you the best of luck and hope they sound great!
