post #1 of 22
Thread Starter 

Ill be using this for commuting, source is ipod nano 16gb fiio e7.I have used UE tfi10, but I'm going to be selling them due to the fact the comfort on these thing arent great. Sure, the sound is phenominal and detailed but comfort is a must for me.So I need your opinion. What IEM should I get, money wise 100$ max types of music, ALL kinds of rock, Radiohead, Metallica, Nirvana, Beatles etc, some hip/hop rap. and Dupstep is mainly what i listen too.So  Guys I need your help. give me 2 IEM i should take a look at.

Klipsch x5/x10 sounds really good with unamped iPods

Mostly universal iems for all kind of music

Also Phonak Audeo is very interesting iems

I would take a look at the MTPC or IE8. They are both great for what you are looking for. I don't have any experience with either of them, so I would suggest looking at reviews or comparison threads. I can give you my impressions of the IE8 when I get them (sometime during this week) biggrin.gif

Sorry, didn't see the $100 max lol. In that case, the Turbines can be had for $50 for refurbs (if you have tips on-hand), PFE 012, or SE215. I had the Turbines, liked them quite a bit; gave them back to Monster due to driver flex and I didn't really need it because I got the TF10's in the same week. I can't really comment on the PFE's and SE215's, but I have heard very good things about them and they seem to fit your musical preference.

How is Hifi Re0 and  sunrise sw-xcape

The RE0 is pretty good, I don't know about the Xcape. I wouldn't recommend it with your preference, unless you have an amp.

Have you considered getting your tf10's remoulded?

post #10 of 22

What sound aspects of the Triple.Fi 10 do you want to keep and what aspects are you willing to let go of or change?

 

Many IEMs will isolate well for the commute and comfort most of the time is simply a tip choice.  At the end though, you still need to be happy with the sound.  We need to know what that sound is in order to help point you in a direction.

 

As well, I will suggest that you look at Joker's and ClieOS' massive review threads.  Read through the descriptions and see if any earphones pop out for you in terms of sound signatures that fit your preference.

Well a custom remould would have fixed the comfort issue but I didn't realize you had already sold the tf10.

What I'm basically looking for, are Iem that have the same sound and soundstage as the Tf10, because those Iem were just wonderful.

You should have just kept those and gone with a remold XD. It will only cost ~$90 from KOZEE, which is a pretty good deal.
