I agree! There are so many reviews that I forgot the TF10 isn't one of them.

I'm pretty sure I speak for the majority here when I say it's also the most anticipated one. As far as I'm concerned, the remainder can wait... biggrin.gif

And the FXT90 afterwards

I'm pretty sure he owns one, but just hasn't gotten around to reviewing them...

post #5016 of 16803

I think the better idea is for everyone to stop loaning joker IEMs...

Joker owns one and has mentioned many times that TF10 will need to wait as long as there are loaners or review samples. I think it's going to be the grand #250 wink.gif (or #300 or #400 or I hope sometime within #500 at least. One can always hope)

They also apply to the rest of the spectrum - the DBA-02 is always crisp and immediate whereas the RE272 is always gentle and liquid.

 

In a way, both will be complementary to some extent ? It wouldn't hurt adding Brainwavz B2 (similar to DBA-02) to my IEM collection as both are different sounding ? Which genre is the forte of Re 272 and DBA-02 ?

 

Thanks for the detailed reply. I thought RE 272 was more on analytical side, but then I have not listened to many IEMs. Etys are for sure analytical ?

When I first listened to the RE272 I disagreed with the raving about how the RE272 can surpass the ER-4 (or UE700 / CK10 etc.) in detail retrieval.

 

I was told the CK10 is "too much detail" which is "noise", lol.

I think the DBA's rock with Rock!  Rush is amazing on DBA's unless you have a basslight fit.

 

Had only a short listen to the RE272 but more laid back/relaxed Classical music would seem best for them I'd say.

I think for a more aggressive sound an Ety or a B2/DBA-02 would compliment the RE272, as long as you're not looking for a radically different balance.

Shipped out my RE252s today and came home to a new package: Earsonics SM3s!

 

The sound: a cohesive, musical sound that ties in the midrange very nicely, ever so slightly warm in balance (getting used it coming from DBA-02s), timbre and bass detail of a level I haven't really experienced from any of my past IEMs.  (RE0s, RE252s, RE262s, DBA-02s/B2s, TF10s, ER4P, S4) 

 

And I'm happy to report I think I've finally found something I can live with.  I'm not anointing it but I'm not going b-itch either, and I think that constitutes 'happiness' as an audiophile.  Reveling in the music.

Judging from ljokerl's sonic preferences, I'm guessing the tf10 will probably score between 8.8 - 9.0 in sound quality.  If you look at his other reviews, he mentions the tf10 a number of times so you can more or less get an idea of what he thinks of it. For the computer newbies, in your browser type Ctrl+F and then type tf10

He does have/had a TF10 in fact and when i asked him about it in a pm he said the sound was a "9 or 9.1" out of 10. Not too bad especially if you got them for 99 dollars :)
