I'd give her yours for now (after you get the 900s).  Then buy TF10s on Black Friday for her (and get your original pair back) :)  That way, you get both :)

No link, just go to their registration page and register something and wait for the email.

I did this once, but I didn't actually get to use it because I believe there was a time limit :P Can someone confirm this?

So make sure you're all set before doing just in case.

I was actually gonna buy her some new ones :p Cause mine are currently held together by super glue because the part that has the nozzle came loose and finally borked off. She would be heartbroken if that happened while she was using them :o

That always helps with fit...  Well, I wouldn't do reshells now, unless your GF's getting impressions.

If I'm not mistaken, UE offers the only dual bore universal on the market.  There is a reason for this.  IT IS NOT COMFORTABLE!.  Setting aside the fact that a silicone tip fit won't stay intact unless you are as still as a manequin, the bore is just too thick to offer comfort past an hour, even with complys.  I suspect we will hear this same song and dance with UE900.  Doubt highly it will dethrone W3 as best universal (my opinion of course) :)  I hope they clear up the foggy midrange.  Everything else with TF10 was superb IMHO.

The shape of the IEM makes it uncomfortable, the dual bore design itself is not.  The Heir Audio 4.Ai uses dual bores if I'm not mistaken. So does the 3.Ai.  I have heard nothing but good things regarding comfort and fit with those two IEMs.  The shape of the UE900s will be similar in shape (IDK about size) to the 4.Ai and 3.Ai.

A dual bore with a custom will be comfortable.

A dual bore with a universal... with a tip over it will be too thick and uncomfortable.  UE900 should be just as uncomfortable as TF10.  Just hoping for an improved sound sig.

You found the midrange of the TF10 more problematic than the W3? o.O You are certainly from a different planet than I...the TF10s mids are much less recessed to my ears, and the bass infinitely less overwhelming, intrusive, and flat out unrealistic, which is basically how I felt about the W3's bass...

3.Ai and 4.Ai are universals...  I wasn't talking about the 3.A or 4.A (custom models).  I was talking about the 3.Ai and 4.Ai which are both universal IEM models (not custom). 

 

Heir Audio IEM (universal/generic fit) page: http://www.heiraudio.com/IEM.html

Heir Audio 3.Ai page: http://www.heiraudio.com/article_177.html

Heir Audio 4.Ai page: http://www.heiraudio.com/article_178.html

 

They are both universal models with dual bores.  No one has complained.  It's not the dual boar that made the TF10s uncomfortable.  It was the shape. The 900s have a shape closer to the Heir Audio universals.  So I'm going to hope they are just as comfortable.  On Tuesday (Monday be Labor day), I'll be getting the 3.Ai, and by Wednesday (hopefully Tuesday though) I should have the 900s in my hands :)
