What are the best IEMs for $150-$200? - Page 2

They have replaceable cables? But I suppose that means I'd have to mod or open up the casing right? It's not a screw-on cable?

That easy huh? Suddenly the TF10s seem a lot more enticing.

 

How do they compare against the IE8s, just in case I find an extra $100 laying around

Imo the 10's have a better over all sound signature than the IE8's.  I like the highs more and the bass on the 10's is not that far off from the IE8's in terms of quality and quantity but again its all subjective to what a person prefers.

if it takes you more than 30 seconds to replace the two cords you're slow :)

 

Extra $100?  not sure what you mean.  The TF10s are $100 cheaper on Amazon than the IE8s.  Also, you should be able to find them on ebay or craigs from the BF sale for even cheaper than Amazon.

+1 Ultimate Ears TripleFi10. It may take you all day to find the right fit, but in the end, they are excellent sounding and snug headphones with the right tips and bend in the memory wire.

What exactly do you mean? Do the TF10s really not fit that well? I've heard many people complaining about it... Also, what are the chances of it going on sale again during Christmas :|

I'd recommend the GR07 and maybe the W2, if you can find a good deal on them. I personally really don't like the fit of the triple.fi 10. Both the GR07 and W2 are super comfy!

The TF10's do not have as bad of a fit problem as many people say.  It took me less than 5mins to get a good fit the first time I used them you just have to find the right tips and you'll be fine (you should have no problems with the Comply tips they give you, they work great).  At their current price they are well worth it and if you don't like them you can resale them and get your money back easy.

It's also quite possible that many people do actually have problem getting a good fit! Of course, people's ears and comfort are a matter of personal opinion. One man's trash is another man's treasure...

Thats true, I just think a lot of them didn't get a good fit with the stock tips and gave up when theres other options for tips you can try.  To me the SQ is so good that its worth trying to find good tips and also the proper way to wear them because you don't have to just wear them up over the ears and for many people the flip mod really helps.

I haven't heard anything in that price range that sounds better than the GR07. They build quality is solid, the fit and isolation are both good, and the sound is fantastic.

Funny thing is I have huge ears and found the TF10s to be the perfect size. Other IEMs that fit like TF10s (e.g. DBAs, ck10s,) all felt a little too small in my ears. With the flip flop mod, I can say they fit beautifully.

I went through all of the stock tips, the comply tips, two sets of dual flange tips from ebay and finally the Sony hybrids.  Nothing would keep those things in my ear until I got custom molds.  But for ~$250 I have custom molded TF10s, love'em.

I must have very normal ear canals because I've never had any fit issues with all them IEM's I got.  I'm looking at getting mine re-shelled at UM because I want the 4 or 6 driver upgrade but if I wasn't going to get more drivers I'd stick with them as is.
