Is it worth getting UE TF10s reshelled?

post #1 of 6
Thread Starter 

I'm thinking about getting my ear molds and sending my TF10s to Melody for reshells into customs.

 

Is this worth the roughly $250 + shipping that it would cost to get it done?  I like the sound of the TF10s, but they just don't stay in very well.

$250 for what? I got mine done at fisher audio for significantly cheaper. I think I paid $110.00 if not slightly more... For me the sound was changed somewhat. The bass had more quantity. Seemed to reach a bit deeper. If you don't at least upgrade the cable to a good silver cable I'd say don't bother. At least the silver cable should help to fix the mid range issue on the TF10s. I think Chris Himself sells reasonably priced silver cables for the TF10. There is a possibility to have fit issues and the need for refits, hopefully you are one of the few lucky ones to not have to go through it..

I can't even FIND fisher audio reshells on Google.  Wow.  Why are they so hard to find?

 

Also, I don't think the midrange needs fixing - especially for the Spotify playlists I listen to at the gym.  I need comfort and the ability to stay in my ears - and I happen to really like the sound I already get from the TF10s.

Not going into the debate into which vendor to use, but in terms of remolding, it's worth it if none of the tips fit in your ear correctly (or worse yet, they don't fit at all without remolding). However, ear molds add to the cost (whichever you quote), and that even the best of impressions don't mean they'll fit correctly the first time around. So prepare for a few weeks without your TF-10's, and be ready to send your TF-10's back if they don't fit the first time around (which is a general issue). Of course, once they do fit well, they're an awesome investment.
