Hey slick, I've since corrected that. They are 600 on the australian ue website, though.

They aren't in stock stock...  Logitech is taking Pre-Orders...  Apple is basically doing the same thing XD  You won't see any reviews until some units are shipped out.  Even then, it'd be a good idea to wait a couple weeks.

Electronically generated images are made to look purty.  I'm sure they still look great in person though (at least I hope so ;P).

Don't expect the price to remain at 400, probably 300ish within a few weeks

 

Last time you checked TF10's were 400 AUD?

Yeah, on the Ultimate Ears site they were more than 350+ last time I checked

If I do make the purchase it won't be from the Australian site. I'll have someone ship these to me from US.

$200 difference is $200!! rolleyes.gif

Edit: Wait, how much are they in Australia? Last I saw was $599?

Going for this instead of FitEar ToGo, for poor audio-fag like me tongue_smile.gif~ no news on release date yet right?

post #84 of 3770

This mean TF10s will soon be mine. ksc75smile.gif

 

But this is hoping they dumped some real UE knowledge into these badboys. Just may be willing to take the $400 plunge first chance I get (yay for livin' in the US of A)

On the Aussie website...

Well I can't speak for it's sonic's but at least UE got rid of the Tri-Fi stock cables. Those cables were terrible so that's a good first sign these new IEM's may have been given a little extra thought build and fit wise.

post #87 of 3770

they definitely paid attention to the fit and form - I can't wait to read some feedback...at the same price as Heir's 4Ai, it'll be interesting to read a comparison.

VIA facebook , "it's hard to pinpoint an exact date, but they should start shipping out in September"

I forgot to mention that i was told the new lineup will initially be available exclusively via the Apple stores. The press release doesn't mention the initial exclusivity.

Shame I lack experience to do what i want though like you hheh


Thing is swimsonny even though they may have the same amount of drivers won't necessarily mean they will sound alike or one is gonna sound better than the other. It will depend on many factors. Such as the drivers used and the implementation/tuning. X-overs and impedance will all contribute to these differences. I am skeptical myself since the TF10 was quite a fail IMO in comparison to other comparably priced IEM or even cheaper models. But being UE is involved in this, I think they really have some big potential and experience.
