Get some Sleek sa7. If you're not going to audition, you might as well get something informative and that you can adjust.

The one great thing about the PFE that many fail to mention is that you can change its sound.

So if you want more bass. You put on the bass filters

If you want more mids. You put on the mids filters.

I believe you can have 3 different sounds as I think it comes with 3 sets of filters

So if you are just listening to music you may want the bass filters
If you are mixing, you may want the more neutral sound

So this is like getting 3 IEM's for price of one

To add, I don't know of any other IEM's that have interchangeable filters/sound. Maybe someone knows of others?

Idk about all this PFE hype. I was interested in buying PFEs but from reading comparison threads here, its no match for triple BA driver IEMs, and is about as good as the RE0, which is about half its price.

 

The TF10 mids are recessed (sound farther away), but it should have the most detailed sound out of all the IEMs you listed. Btw, the TF10's strong point is its treble.

 

Not sure about this but IIRC the PFE comes with a grey and a black filter, grey having more treble and the black ones with more bass. The Phonak Perfect Bass comes with a green filter which emphasizes bass.

I have both the IE7 and TF10. I really like the IE7, but It's no contest - TF10 are more capable earphones, if they fit your ears.

You can always resell the TF10 for around the price you bought them for if they dont fit you well. But definitely don't buy the TF10 if you don't want recessed mids.

I own both. So there is no point in me bashing one over the other.

But in my opinion, there is no recessed mids on the TFi 10. In fact, it's 

quite nice. 

The IE7 are smoother all round, no different in that regard with the IE8. Which I also 

own. Personally, I like the balance of the IE7 more than the IE8. Maybe my IE8 haven't

been burned in completely yet. 

Anyway, I think the TFi wins out on the overall resolution and clarity. Bass is less prominent 

than the Ie7. But still great. Punchy and tight.

I prefer the Tfi 10.

Buy both and return the one you don't like.

 

Or save yourself the trouble of having to return the IE7 and just buy the TF10 biggrin.gif
