    What is going on over at Ultimate Ears???

    Man this is ridiculous! I bought a pair of the triple.fi pro's less then a month ago and the bass driver goes out. Fine, faulty drivers happen no biggie. I email them 6 days ago to get an RMA and still getting jerked around?? First email, generic fill out this questionnaire send it back and hear...

    Talk me out of JH16? About to pull the trigger...

    Perhaps you've seen my other threads, quick recap: Have had UE TF10 for 3-4 years, wanted something with more bass, but the same or better mids/highs.   Tried 5EB, mids/high completely inferior to TF10, realized that I don't want to sacrafice mids/highs for bass.  Thought about getting...

    Ultimate Ears Super Fi Pro - sound in the right housing seems to be "quieter" and less reactive than left (past warranty)

    I have the pre-Logitech Super Fi 5 Professional earphones, which means these are the dual armature ones, with white housing and grey stock earbuds.   It seems that the right housing right now is less reactive than the left, which is annoying. I ordered another replacement cable just to see...

    Replacing Super.Fi 5 jack

    Hello all! My UE Super.Fi 5 have a pretty much dead connection to one of the buds, traced to the cable literally at or just before the jack. They've long been replaced by a pair of Triple.Fi 10, but for sentimental reasons and because I love fiddling I'm looking to fix them anyway.   Now...

    Shure, revisited

    Years ago I had some Shure E4cs and returned them promptly for lack of bass and that tinny sound dreaded by bassheads. I purchased some UE SuperFi5EBs and never looked back. Until I progressed from the EBs to Westone 3s, and now find myself longing for more clarity. So, I just ordered a set of...

    JH5 or Reshell TF10

    It seem to me that both are equally tempting.   Should i get the Reshell TF10 or JH5? I quite enjoy the TF10 but I heard wonders about the JH5... So was just thinking which is a better one?

    In a insane search for the perfect strong deep bass again in an IEM, I bought the MDR-XB40EX and now it is completely burned-in at about 100 hours. First, it is a pain to use, so it is useless. The comfort is tragic. They are super heavy because of the huge size and the extra metal body that...

    Upgrade from Klipsch Image-S4

      Hi there, I've been searching around for an advice on upgrading from Image S4 and all the roads seems to lead head-fi. I've read couple threads of similar topic, but people that were asking this question seemed to had more money to burn than me, hope it is not too big of problem for me to...

    Ultimate ears I saw at the store but couldn't identify (no time)

    So I was at the mall today and I saw an Ultimate Ears headphone and I was wondering which model it was...   1- The headphones themselves were kind of really huge with transparent replaceable cables. 2- It said SuperFi, but I couldn't catch which one 3- The box had a zebra pattern on it...

    Hello, everyone! I am new to this web site, and I'm happy to find a site with so many experienced audiophiles.  I currently have a 5-year old pair of Ultimate Ears Super-fi 5 earbuds.  I've been very happy with the sound, but the fit has always been a problem.  I am considering an upgrade to...

    Shure SE215 vs. Shure e2

    I currently have the Shure e2's. I've had them for several years. They're still in very good shape and are used occasionally for working out and other general use. Before these I went through a handful of earbuds $100 and under as well as both the UE 5Pro and UE 5EB. I also had some of the lower...

    Shure 535 can be improved by replacing the cables!

    Since I bought the Shure 535 I have been not satisfied with the bass. I went to a store and was thinking of buying another earphone or trading these in. The guy at the store handed me sone pure silver wire that replaces the stock Shure 535 and wow, there was a lot more thump of bass! I compared...

    Westone 4s the gateway to customs?

    Kids, stay away from the Westone 4s. They are bad for your wallet as they lead to other things, like customs. I just got the 4s and was not sure what to expect. I am a highly evolved basshead who started with juvenile ears craving Superfi 5 EB-like bass, but slowly grew opposable thumbs and...

    smaller "replacement" for SuperFi 5EB?

    Hi everyone I have two pairs of UE SuperFi 5EB and I love the mix of sound quality and sound signature (lot's of clear bass, the sound is "wide" and exciting). The biggest problem is that they are simply a little too big to wear outside. I'm currently falling back to a pair of UE MetroFi 2...

    Need a recommendation

    I have a Monster Turbine right now, and I love its sound quality very much. However its small soundstage is really fatiguing to me. Right now I want to move on and get a new IEM which probably has similar SQ but with a better SS. IEMs im considering is IE6, probably SF5P (a little out of budget)...

    Triple.fi 10 pro fit fix, for those who can't get a seal.

    I had the Super.fi 5 EBs, and i guess the way they were designed, with the fat part farther away from the ear canal, I didn't have any fit problems. So when I bought the Triple.fi, I figured there wouldn't be a problem, but I tried all the included tips and the only ones that I could get a seal...
