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.


Totally agree, I always thought I cant get best fit for TF10 and hence they sound this way, but seems others have similar issues comparing to W3.

i find as you climb the latter and you start listening to better and better earphones, like one source said it makes listening to even excellent headphones or earphone unbearable.

 

once you hear accuracy and detail, sub bass,mid bass,high extensions that have high accuracy, you tend to lose focus on what lower teir iems have to offer.

 

oddly enough i went from the w4r to the um3x and found it to be a upgrade. the um3x does alot that the w4r doesnt do.

 

some might find the ue900 better than the tf10, i personally didnt find them to be a upgrafe as i dont like the ue900's cable,connectors,or quality of the housing. i think it was a poor attempt to revamp and remold the tf10. imo the tf10 for the price is hard to beat.

 

but again once you start hearing real accuracy from in ear monitors you cant go back.

 

in one way its a form of stopping upgraditis, however now you have to start upgrade over high end items, when i first started out on here i was rockin the se535 bronze i believe was my first ''top tier'' iem, cut to now, i am playing with fit ear and jh16 pro's.....so as you can see the whole climbing the latter is probably the biggest problem.

 

although if you can be content with one iem, which i find it to be impossible. then you good. but again imo impossible

I would emphatically say TF10 is superior.

 

When TF10 was released it was hailed as a very "balanced" IEM.  It was a universal version UE10 with a bit more coloring (mid-bass).  I like and am a fan of TF10 even though it has the worst clouded midrange effect from a midbass boost of any IEM ever made.  I overlook it because the treble, bass and soundstage are phennomenal. 

 

The UE900 are too relaxed, somewhat cloudy, quite midcentric.......and while they show some subbass.....compared to other IEM's in its pricepoint I would say it is very weak in, both, bass and treble.  Soundstage is excellent, like TF10 but the REAL deal killer for me was it's tendency to distort after you hit (about) a modest 90dB on the volume.   Completely unacceptable.

 

To this day I say if Logitech repackaged TF10 into the UE900 housing with a cable upgrade they would sell a kazillion of them and I would be first in line..

i would love to see the tf10 repackaged in a even more ergonomic housing, one along the lines of the w4r or um3x, that styling seems most comfortable.

 

and while i had no fit issues with the tf10, with me i found it more to be a cable thing than a housing thing. you really need to work with the cable to go over your ears, the slightly invert the cable guide wire inward while not disrupting the curvature of the guide wire, and your good...that might not make sense, but thats the best way to discribe getting a perfect fit with the tf10, its all in the cable, and you might need to work at it you may not get it right the first time. but once you get one right, you will know how to get the other right just as well.

 

i owned the tf10 twice and while i know there is no difference in housing or anything, i went straight to the cable adjusted it over my ears, turned the cable in towards the tip again without adjusting the curvature of the guide wire, bam i was in business.

 

i am now way up on the food chain as far as iems but i still hail the tf10 as being one of the best iems you can get under 200.00 if you are looking for that style V shape more or less.
