While back I when I tried the triple fi I didn't think it was outputting good enough sound given its price tag, so I returned them. They sounded veiled, there were no clarity to the sound. Then I recently decided to give them a second chance. I was again disappointed when I compared it with my RE0. Then I decided to try them amped with my D10, and that made a world of difference to the sound.The amp got rid of the veil and everything sounded much clearer and detailed. I was wondering if the triple fi are meant to be amped, because from my experience I got the wrong impression of its capabilities until I amped it. I thought it was just overhyped headphones because it sounded like regular cheap headphones unamped. I didn't expect it to benefit from amping because my RE0 didn't sound that much different without an amp(only increase in volume).
