+1 > if you run into fit issue just like others.

And alternatively you can very well try lot of silicon tips available especially sony hybrids that satisfied many for that matter.(but I haven't tried yet :wink:)

Both ways tf10 won't bite your wallet much. tf10 is my tri-BA all time favorite iem. Even electronics giant sony couldn't survive with their XBA3/4 BA iems line up unlike tf10 which is still stronger and going on......since 2006. :D

Actually they kind of will!.  They are $400 now.

 

Amazing if you think about it.  Logitech's flagship $400 IEM is not selling.  They realize most people much prefer the sound of TF10 which subtly adds value to it so they turn around and jack up the price to $400.  To me, THAT"S more shameful than anything Westone has done with their new series.

Where do you see the TF10 for $400?

post #19 of 50

I appreciate what Logitech did with the UE900.  I honestly didn't think they'd put out anything to follow up the TF10, but then again anything following up the TF10 is bound to be a hard act to follow..

Oops, I see Amazon has for $240.  I swear I was just looking yesterday and could not find for less than $400 new.  My mistake.

I agree the tf10 had become a staple point in ultimate ears reputation, esp in the uiem market.

I do however think they were trying to make a new tf10 and have a new flagship. But the quality in build or sound wasnt there. And I dont think garners the price point imo.

Logitech ultimate ears lost jh and the company went down hill imo

Yea, no doubt.  Funny how the TF10 was always hailed as "balanced".  But when UE900 came out people started talking about how u-shaped TF10 is.    Ultimate Ears even realized the way to go.  TF10 was basically a consumer version of UE10 with a more colorful sound.  I think that was smart since despite the crappy fit UE sold a ton of TF10's.  Logitech decided to go back to a flatter neutral reference level offering (UE900) for the consumer market and I have to think the sales are below expectations.  Though I suppose some of this could be due to the many front end quality issues.

I think the UE900 is comparable to the Westone 4. Westone they did the same thing. Going from fun, exciting, v shaped westone 3 to a more "reference" model, more detailed more accurate but boring to people that like a fun wow factor sound. It seemed like everyone was excited about dual bass drivers but were somewhat disappointed that there was much less bass than the W3.

This is the same reason I will stick with my JH16 Pro, I hear the new FP has better imaging and clarity but that the beast has been tamed a bit. Perhaps I have more of a consumer taste, but I do enjoy high end sound that is fun.

Actually back when it was just the TF10, SE530 and UM2 the TF10 was known for it's V shaped signature. It is a hard act to follow when it sold so well and got good reception from both audiophiles and non. They also like to sell huge universals that could have a potential for fit issues (the UE900 isn't that much better than the TF10) but it does seem that it isn't very well received. I know I'm not a fan of them. 

 

I think UE is widely overlooked because Jerry Harvey is no longer there which is a shame as I feel their customs are still quite good. However they definitely are not as innovative as JH Audio as you can tell by the products that JH Audio has released in the last few years compared to UE.

I like the TF10 but there is plenty to criticize. The fit of course but many find it very un natural sounding. You have a very detailed bass and treble but the midrange is a bit cloudy. Drives me a little crazy because this usually only happens with a bad mid bass hump but its not that bad. Its really kind of strange. Even the W3 that has a larger mid bass hump has better overall clarity. I've asked Jerry Harvey many times why they tuned the TF10 midrange that way by never get an answer. Perhaps it to offset the very revealing treble? Overall I find TF10 pleasently smooth.

I think the Westone 3 has better depth and that helps with the clarity in the midrange and overall.
