This requires impressions again if the company no longer has them on file, as well as a payment to reshell, of course, you also have to pay time. So a solution like this would actually seem worthwhile in a situation like that.
However, the TF-10 can be had for 200 bucks, 99 back in the Black Fridays, which is definitely absurd to pay 139 to fix something that was 99 at one time XD The MSRP of the TF10 is 400 though, might make it look a little better in that light XD
Hmm, your right. It's better to get this device if you've bought a custom one for like over $300. For my case, I've bought my TF10 pro for 22000yen ($200~$250) around three years ago while I was in Japan. I also had troubles with my TF where one of the channel wasn't working and since I bought it from Japan, I had to send it back to Japan wait around literally four months and finally they sent it back with fixed channel and a new cable. Although it didn't cost that much (I only paid the postage and replacement cable) the time I had wait is just not worth it imo. As a result, if I sent this back for a full cleaning I'd properly have to wait couple of months.
I've just checked the prices for TF10 pro and $170 is the cheapest I could find from my area.
With that being said, I'm not sure if I should get:
- cleaning device
- a new TF10
- a new pair of earphones (thinking of getting UE 900 as it was similar to TF10 with improvements on some areas however, the price is just overkill)
With the cost in mind as well as how many years I've used this earphone for, getting a new IEM might be a viable option.

Nice to see fellow aussies in this forum. Ah, I see I noticed the voltage it uses matches the Aus voltage so it seems like I only need a one of those travel plugs to plug it into powerboard.
