Sorry, took these fast with my cellphone camera, but hopefully they get the idea across.  Forgot to get pics of the cable, but it's pretty simple... a very thin copper cable with no memory wire and a beefy plug. smily_headphones1.gif

Thirstymonkey, Do you still remember the California zip code that you received from Rob? Maybe it's mine, I'm from CA 92078.smily_headphones1.gif

Sethez, those are custom blue as well? I'm having a hard time differentiating between the custom blue and light blue lol.

 

Anyways, good news Rob shipped my TF10s this morning. Being in Canada I'll probably have them in 1.5-2 weeks! (hoping for sooner). Can't wait!

I have got to say, been listening to them for over 24 hours.. my brain is has partially adjusted to the sound, fit and feel. The extension on either ends and the overall clarity is just amazing! Its like an amped version of the R-50. Better soundstage as well. 

 

Although the warmth is still not there, I prefer this lean signature. The micro-detailing is nothing short of excellent. Nearing the levels of my SA-5k

I would like to share my experiences with the re-shells (Rockit R-50 with Shure SE-425 cable), the problems I faced and my route taken to solve them.

 

Staying in India, I can't afford for the shipping back and forth and have to be happy with what I get or make necessary adjustments.

 

As I mentioned earlier, the left ear piece had an excess of acrylic mould around the MMCX socket which caused loose connection and loss of channel sound, also the left cable would come off loose and the ear piece would fall, which caused a very minor dent on the left ear piece recently. I also escalated this problem to Rob and Dan. 

 

Being familiar with sanding paper, I thought that sanding would level the unwanted acrylic. 

 

I spend the weekend at my cousin's place and found some coarse sanding paper. 

 

I leveled the ear piece with a small piece of sanding paper to make the excess acrylic spread more uniformly around the socket. the amount of leveling needed would best be judged by how much you can actually 'see' the circumference of the pin hole socket.  I got a reply from Dan telling me that Rob suggested using sanding paper grit designation 320 and moving up to 600 before polishing. 

Obviously by now, I had used a very coarse sanding paper and not the fine ones that Rob recommended.

 

Once done, I found that the cables fit in snug. I had left a few marks on the ear piece from the sanding and the glow of the CIEM was marred.

 

So I tried searching for polish but couldn't find one, unless of course my mom gave me a marker to write up something on an postage. The marker is violet ink & permanent. I used it on the scratches and I found that it that scratches disappeared under the ink. 

 

Trust this helps some one...

I might have my R-50 reshelled later this month, so this certainly helps, along with your early impressions as well.
 
Thanks for sharing!
