Triple.fi 10 Pro stock cable vs. Westone EPIC cable

post #1 of 21
Thread Starter 

OK, so this question is for folks that have used the UE stock cable with their Triple.fi 10 Pros and have switched over to Westone EPIC cables. What difference did you noticed?

 

Thanks,

they are not compatible.....

 

You need a UE upgrade cable and i really recommend getting one. Read this:

Sonically I can't tell the difference. But that is no surprise because I run mine from portable devices without the benefit of a high-end DAC and amp.

 

The thing I love about the Westone is it's flexibility and the look.  The thing is so light it's like a thick piece of string, so it's very unobtrusive.  One thing I didn't care for so much: The blue from the bodies of my TF10's bled into the clear sheilding.  I stored them coiled around the ear-pieces in the metal box.  In a hot car the color sort of migrated to the clear plastic.
 

 

 

EDIT: @ Swimsonny  I guess I'm lucky that nobody ever told my TF10 Pro's that the Westone cable was incompatible rolleyes.gif

Does it work okay then. I thought they were different pin types. I know for fact that UE cables don't work with westone IEMs or likewiseZ

^^^ Well its incompatible in that it stretches out the pinholes on the TF10 since the westone pins are slightly thicker. So changing cables frequently would be bad since they would eventually stretch so far that they fall out easily. But if you just change cables once and forget (like i have with my UERM cable on my TF10) you shouldn't have any problems.

Fair enough in that case a westone cable is much more usable.

I would still get a e upgrade silver cable from effect audio or chris_himself.

They're both too expensive for me right now. Why on earth are you preferring the stock UE cable on your blog? It's crappy!

Oh it sure is :D
The Westone EPIC is 100 times more flexible then the stock UE one.
But I don't think that it will improve the sound noticeable.

The sunricky one looks cool and all and I heard that it really can improve the sq of your TF10 BUT I also heard that all the sunricky cables are stiff as hell.

The silver plated one like I said. wink.gif The sunricky cable I had here was no more less flexible then the W3 cable infront of me. It looks much nicer in real life too. It's a no brainer imo. You won't need to file the pins down, it's cheaper, and has 4X (four wires) Silver plated wire. What's the Westonte cables material used? I can't even see it says anywhere.

Have some faith brother, go for the silver plated white angel.

Yes it does, it's just like dark lord is but the pre moulded plastic hoops are clear.

See the thickness differences

You guys are tearing me apart biggrin.gif I would really hate to modify the pins, that is true...And if the Sunricky cable does improve the SQ at least a little, I'd go for that...Now I just need to be sure! :))
