Klipsch x10 or UE Triple fi.10? - Page 5

post #61 of 211

Pfft, I hope these posts claiming the TF10's are far superior to the X10's are joking... The TF10's, IMO, weren't that great compared to, say, the EX600. Given, that assumption is from memory, but I can still recall the TF10's sound-signature clearly; over-extended highs and bass, drowning out the mids thus creating an extreme /\ shaped presentation. Good for electronic and rock, terrible for everything else.

 

If there are more people that want to sell their X10, I am interested to hear what they sound like haha.

The bass in the X10 overpowers the mids a bit, so they're not perfect.  The Klipsch X5 sound better to me.  Unfortunately, they're bigger and not as comfortable.

Ugh, no way. The EX600s are awful compared to the TF10. The treble on the EX600s were way too extended and unnatural. I'm not a fan of the TF10s midrange, but at least it's clean and without sibilance in the upper mids; like the EX600s which pierced my ears.

Huh? Poor fit? At least, that is the only conclusion I can come up with unless you're hearing something I never did in the 150+ hours I put on the EX600. They were rather unnatural for the first couple of hours of use, but they settled down quite a bit after the first listening session.

My pair was definitely fully burned. Yes, I could change the fit so I got minimal sibilance, but it would completely flatten the soundstage. Honestly, the TF10s are just better (for me), better bass, smoother treble, better resolution, and even better detail retrieval. Surprisingly, the TF10s fit me perfectly fine.

Haha, different strokes for different folks I guess.

 

And the TF10 annihilated my ears; I couldn't wear them for more than 20 min. before having to rip them out :/

BA (Balanced Armature) drivers tend not to burn in; your ears will be the only two things adjusting to the sound :)

Oh, cuz i just opened these x10s like right now.... so ur saying that's the best its gonna be?? no changes watso ever?

I had the x10 before and it sounded the same after "burn in". But as mastershake already mentioned, burn in doesn't really exist on BA drivers and that just happens to be my experience with BAs also.

wow....... because the bass is lacking. So is this normal? People said these were bass heavy..

post #72 of 211

The notion that burn-in exists is still questioned. IMO, I think it has more to do with the person getting use to the sound more than the drivers actually breaking in. There have been instances where burn-in has occurred; first in the MTPC then again in the MDT. But, like I said, I would suggest getting your ears accustom to the sound before coming to a final conclusion on the IEM.

Maybe for BA IEMs. I doubt the bass impact is anywhere near DD IEMs in that price-range (Radius DDM, Vsonic GR07, etc.) It's all getting use to the sound more than anything else.

Nvm, I should have read the entire thread. ==
