I got in on that deal with the Triples too.... I owned them once before, and remember them in a significantly better light than I hear this set. I agree the top end is great on the Triples, but I feel that's the only area they better the AT's. I think the AT's midrange presentation is also much better than the Triples, being more open and relaxed sounding. The TF10's sound sort of thin, nasally, and compressed to me by comparison. It's weird, because I don't remember the first pair this way. I also remember being much more satisfied by the bass, especially for a BA driver IEM. Of course that was before I'd owned the IE8, FX500, Denon C710, and now the CKS70. I'm beginning to think there are certain things a good dynamic driver IEM can do which the current crop of universal BA IEM's can't accomplish. Neither the IE8's nor the CKS70's have the same choked in feeling from the bass up through the mids, to my ears.
