Latest reviews

Pros: Decent low end. At the time a real winner in the hifi world.
Cons: Recessed mids. Dull highs. Terrible fit for a lot of people. Terrible stock cable. Haven’t aged very well sound wise 13 years later.
While listening to my UE 6 Pro and writing up a review I decided to listen to my original UE triplefi 10 set which led to procrastinating on the UE 6 review and writing one up for this old pair instead. A little back story first though! Back in 2007 during my senior year of high school I had made a decision to upgrade from my crappy earbuds to something better. My dad being an audio engineer told me to try out the Shures or Ultimate Ears of the time. I really loved the electric blue color of the UE tf10 and after saving up for what felt like forever through my senior year and I got the tf10 for $400 bucks. I’ve owned this original pair since then and these had burned through 6 or more UE stock cables. Had the part of the shell that has the nozzle come off. The right driver definitely has a channel imbalance problem now that I listened to them again. That being said they’ve been through hell and back with me while growing up. I still love them and they were my gateway into the hifi world when I thought mp3s in 320kbps were the most hifi you could get and beats headphones were endgame.

Now let’s get to the review of the sound! My personal preference are a dynamic hybrid iem where I get good hitting bass and have a brighter treble with decent mids. I listen to a lot of genres but I hover in the classic rock, blues and edm music with some rap here and there.

Gear used
iPhone X with headphone adapter, FiiO m11, smsl sh8/su8 combo, and a good ol iPod nano!

Lows- They have a good low end. It’s borderline almost bloated but I’m not sure if it’s cause they’re 13ish years old or not. After listening to them again I was like “oh! These still have a nice low end” no thumping hit or rumbles though.

Mids- Recessed for sure. But at the time it blew my mind.

Highs- Super relaxed and calm. This was the best I had at the time so it sounded super detailed back then haha these didn’t age all that well.

Imaging- Average.

Soundstage- Intimate. No sources help open it up.

Cable rolling- I never really got into cable rolling with the tf10 since the left monitor was the opposite polarity of the right so getting cables made was hard. The original ue cable broke so many times I probably bought like 6 of them for the first 4 or 5 years of owning them. I still have a labkable....cable I got shortly after giving up on the horrible stock UE cable. I ended up not being a fan of that cable and after a few years I found out about null audio. At the time they specialized in tf10 cables and I got the lune Mk3 cable and that’s what’s been on there since. Whether the cables made a difference or not is hard to say. Both the labkable and null cable sound the same to me when swapping.

Amping
Amping doesn’t seem to do much if anything to these. They aren’t hard to drive at all. Even the clinical sounding FiiO m11 did nothing to the treble for the tf10. My smsl desktop combo just made the bass bloated. Balanced does nothing to them either.

Overall thoughts
I bust these out once in a blue moon to go down memory lane to remind myself what got me into the hifi world and I’ll say they still make me smile but when comparing them to a $200-500 set of modern iems these are most definitely lacking. They have a special charm about them though. Ask anyone who has owned a pair of the tf10 and they will probably say they love them too. My five star review is somewhat bias to the nostalgia I have with these. Had this review been from 2007-2008 I would of definitely given them a proper 5 stars. If anyone ever has a chance to sit down with a pair of the tf10 for a day or two I would definitely say do it.
