Pros - Visceral bass response, clear and powerful.
Cons - Mids are kind of weak
I noticed so much praise around here that my expectations were quite high and I gotta say: I was not disappointed at all. There's little new we can say about such a famous/infamous IEM. I bought a pair to reshell them and try customs so I can't comment about build quality. Not really a fan of V-shaped signatures but this one is special, some people can argue about the overwhelming bass hiding mid-details, but again, the TF10 are really wonderful! Highly recommend them!
Pros - Sound Quality
Cons - Fit (for some)
I bought these to replace my old friends; the UE Super Fi 5, that broke after 7 yrs due to MY mishandling. I'll try to keep this short as SO MUCH has been written about these classic earphones! I'm a longtime audiophile (30+ yrs!). TT - Linn LP12/Lingo/Ittok IV/Ortofon Blaupunkt, CD - Arcam FMJ CD 23T, Amp - Music Reference RM9 (tube), Preamp - Audio Research LS15 (tube), Phono Preamp - Audio Research PH3 (tube) , Spkrs - Spendor S100, this makes up the bulk of my rig, along with racks, cables, and a few other toys. I've got an Ol' School headphone rig - Sennheiser HD600's with a Musical Fidelity tube headphone amp, that I've owned for close to a decade. While my system isn't the best of the best or the latest and greatest, I'm confident in my ability to determine good sound. That said, the fact that one can achieve this level of sonic performance with a pair of buds straight out of a stock Ipod (a mid-fi component at it's best) is nothing short of a miracle! I'll add that flip-flopping (reversing) the earpieces should be considered mandatory! I never did this with my SF5's as I only learned of this method recently (here!), it's been a revelation in every way, the earpieces along with the all-important 'seal', 'lock' into position and don't budge 'til you decide it's time. I paid less for the TF10's than I did for the SF5's, an absolute win-win for me! At the price these bad boy's can be had for now, it's a no-brainer!
Pros - Sound Quality, Great for a Basshead & Treblehead, Great For Price That You Can Get Them For
Cons - Recessed Midrange, **DODGY CABLE**
I traded my beloved IE8s for these just less than a week ago. All of this is tested on my HDP-R10, Samsung Galaxy S3 and my Sansa Clip+.
Everything said in this review is how I hear and I am in no way affiliated with UE or against them.
Design and Comfort:
I actually really like how these look. Personally, I think that the "Gunmetal Blue" looks very cool. It comes with detachable and easily replaceable cables, which is good because I have never ever come across a worse cable. It is very still and coming from the nice and soft cable of the Sennheiser IE8, the cable and memory wire was definitely a pain to gt used to, but I have already bought a "Dark Lord" cable from a Head-Fier and I'm waiting for it to get here. I also have to say that I have fairly small ears and after an hour or so of wear, they become pretty uncomfortable, which I think has something to do with how the housing of the IEMs are positioned. If your budget permits, I would recommend you to look into reshelling them into a custom. It comes with a very nice case which UE claims is crushproof. It certainly feels the part, but I have no intentions of smashing a brick on them to test it out.
I don't see myself as a basshead and have to really EQ to get the sound that I want on the TF-10s. To me, the bass without any EQ sounds a tiny bit bloated and hits too hard. However, quality of and detail in the bass is very good. I think that some details are hidden by the bass. I love the low bass rumble in many of my songs. Many people will probably ask what the differences between the Sennheiser IE8 and these are. I will do a comparison of the TF-10 to the IE8 in every section.
IE8 vs TF-10 Bass:
I sort of agree to ProjectDenz on this. The IE8's bass is very hard hitting and is bloated to me. It reverbs a bit more than the TF-10. This can be both a good and bad thing. The TF-10 has better quality bass and slightly less bass overall.
This is what ProjectDenz wrote and I agree with it.
IMO, this is the TF-10's weak point. Some may say that the mids are not recessed. I however, believe that they are. Upon the first listen, I could immediately tell that the midrange was recessed and sounded quite distant. If you have something like a Westone, switching to a TF-10 will take a lot of getting used to. However, EQing fixes this easily and makes it very enjoyable again.
IE8 vs TF-10 Midrange
Both of those IEMs have a recessed midrange and I would say that without EQ, IE8 wins by a tiny margin, but with EQ, TF-10 can be better
Perhaps the strongest part of these is the treble. It is hard to describe, but at the top end, there is a sparkle to it. It extends very high and there is no sibilance whatsoever. Occasionally, these do cause listening fatigue. Some say that BA IEMs don't burn in, but I could have sworn that the treble because less harsh after I got around 100 hours on them.
IE8 vs TF-10 Treble:
At times, I found the IE8's treble to be a little veiled and the TF-10's treble to be excessive. However, I feel that there is more detail in the treble of TF-10. The Ultimate Ears Triple.Fi 10 win here.
Soundstage is good, but nothing special and truly cannot compete against the IE8. The IE8 wins by quite a large margin here. However, I think that instrument placement is around the same for those two. Maybe, the TF-10 is a tad bit better.
There is much more detail in the TF-10 and you can hear things that weren't very clear or in some extreme cases, unnoticeable on the IE8. The TF-10 wins by quite a bit here.
These IEMs are truly impressive an to me, a good upgrade to my IE8s. I would say that if you found them for under $150, grab it immediately. The sound signature is on the warm side and V shaped. I wouldn't recommend these if you love in your face midrange, but otherwise, these are an extremey good pair of IEMs. However, I believe that they have recently been discontinued. Their successor, the UE900 is supposedly better and more neutral. I look forward to trying one of them out. However, the main gripe that I have with them is that they have too much sparkle at times and it easily causes listening fatigue.
I would recommend that you use an amp with them, as without an amp, they hiss quite a bit and can get very annoying.
Edit: Dropped a star because after listening to them after hearing similarly priced IEM, they really aren't that impressive.
Pros - Great sound quality and removable cable
Cons - comfort, fit and stock cable quality
It's my first IEM.
For this price it sound great and have removable cable. So you can upgrade cable for better sound quality.
but it's not fit and comfort for my ears.
Pros - Great sound, removable cable
Cons - Cable quality
Audio quality-These things sound awesome. Knock out anything in the price range, compete with Westone 4s and Shure 535. Discontinued, so really low price.
Design-These are huge. Really big. If you can get them to fit right, not an issue,though they look a little odd.
Comfort-Pretty comfortable. Big though, can't lay down.
Isolation-Really good with the included Comply tips.
Two small caveats. The foam tips dirty quickly due to their color, and will need to be replaced as they become saturated with wax. The cable is awful. It retains its shape from packaging, full of kinks. The memory wire by the ear pieces can punture the wire.
I love the case that came with these. Its really nice. And the cables are replaceable, which I plan to upgrade. The treble is overbearing, and very fatiguing with the silicone tips. If you get the Complys to fit really well, the bass picks up and sounds awesome. Push them into your ear a little harder while wearing them-does the bass pick up? If so, they aren't in properly.
Pros - clarity and instrument separation. bass. highs are superba!
Cons - lacks transparency with mp3's even 320. ever so slight sibilance in the vocals sometimes
I must have HUGE ear canals, because with the large silicone tips provided in the box, I got a perfect fit with an impeccable seal! Now i simply get the most amazing sounds ever from an IEM i've owned, and i've owned MANY! I must amend to say that the simply stellar sound quality extends to FLAC (lossless) sources. The TF 10's tend to struggle a bit with mp3's. Even the 320 and V0 quality files. You lose about 10-20% of the sound stage and depth with mp3 files. Still....worth every penny, and I must laugh at those who complain about it being a bad fit or uncomfortable ect ect. I sleep with mine in. As i stated earlier I got an impeccable fit. I love my TF 10's. Now on to the Sennheiser IE80's and Westone 4's.
So far they're great...with the Comply tips they isolate very well and are very comfortable as well. The detail is amazing, and the soundstage is about the best you can expect from a universal IEM. Separation, as expected with a 3 way crossover high-mid-low setup, is great. Can't recommend these enough, and at the prices these are going for now you'd have to be crazy not to buy them.
Pros - looks great, great treble and bass, removable cable, wide stage
Cons - weak mid (foggy), few people can wear this
after listening to TF10 for 2hours i decided to write a review of it
1. there's only few people WHO can wear this earphone for me i can't it'd fell off when i put it in my ear
2. the mid isn't that good since there's no mid driver (JH5 doesn't have mid either but the mid isn't as bad as the TF2)
but the stage - when you listen to orchestra songs the TF10 can separate the instrument very well comparing to other universal IEMs
i would recommend this to people who listen to:
