which earphone is significantly improve over UE TripleFi 10?

post #1 of 74
Thread Starter 

I have been using my TF10 here and there. I really like the quality of the sound. I can hear a lot more details compare to sucky iPhone earphone lol. I also have westone cable on them. TF10 is my first earphone. I'm just looking for the upgrade. I might be selling it if you are looking for a used one in excellent condition. I recently ordered Astro A40 wireless system for gaming. I'm looking for in-ear or over-ear headphone for my computer and iPhone. Do I need anything to improve my sound quality from my PC?


I'm not an audiophile but I really appreciate quality products :)  I know most of you guys are very informative about sounds. Help me out guys.

I don't there is a "better" IEM between top tier ones. They're just different. I suggest looking into IEMs with different flavours: se535, GR07, IE8,  EX1000, UM3X, etc. Or better yet, explore full sized headphones / custom IEMs. If you want to improve sound quality, get a decent DAC.

The Sony EX1000, Westone 4, PFE232, RE272 are clear upgrade over TF10Pro with superb soundquality.

TS842 if you don't want to spend for a JH13/16, but if you do the JH16 and Rooth LS8 are good bets.

I don't think I'm ready to spend 1000+ on the earphone yet lol. I know JH is the best out there you can buy but I'm not sure if it's worth investing. I need to start reading reviews.

there isnt so much as "better" but there are different that may suit you better.

 

 

if you want better get an amp for your TF10's

The biggest improvement I have experienced with the TF10 is from a better cable, not an amp, and not even reshelling.

Well, with diminishing returns and all that noise in effect, the only way to get a "significant" upgrade over the TF10s is probably going to be venturing into custom territory.

No universal is better than TF10.  An amp will improve it a little bit but customs would be the way to upgrade.  JH13 or ES5.

I kinda agree. TF10 rocks in the fun department.

I would say I like EX1000 better, and it does better than TF10....

In my own experience, UM3X is better than TF10 by a good margin in terms of SQ and it is no contest in terms of comfort/fit.  I am sure others have universals that they feel are better than the TF10. It really depends on what the listener is going for.
