It's not even because of the isolation because my room is fairly quiet but with the TF10s I'm listening to classical at 18% volume on my pc and it's perfectly fine. I like to listen loud too.



The TF10s have an impedance of 32ohm, with a sensitivity of 117db/spl/mW. The fact that they're quite easy to drive along with the isolation means depending on what your last headphone it's probably louder at the same volume knob level

Well, it's brilliant. I would always listen at 90%+ volume and sometimes at 100% on the Sansa Clip. Guess I just needed some decent phones. Happy at 60% now.

Does the size of an mp3 player have any bearing on better powering the phones? Would the SQ change going from clip, fuze, nano, cowon?

Yay, I'm finally reunited with the triple.fi 10 Pro!

They have considerably more upper treble than I remember, which is rather harsh on my ears, especially sine I've grown accustomed to the Shure SE530 in the meantime. There tips are the same I used when I last had them (medium silicon)...funny how time changes things.

the size (actual size) of a player doesn't matter. the opamp is powered by the battery. the size of the battery MIGHT make a particular player sound better than another player using the same chip. most people with portable amps will say that energising the phones can make a huge difference but in those cases particular phones might be designed to be used with an amplifier. anyway. yes, different players using different chips produce different sounds. factor in various sound enhancements and now you may get a VERY different sound. the tf10s are sensitive, meaning they power up with less energy than many iems. 60% on a clip is pretty loud.... don't make me type in caps K?

I would try amazon if they're still in stock, if not then I'd try UE.

I haven't had a new pair of IEMs since the UE11 was released.

Sorry, can't compare. I can tell you that I would rather have them then the UE11 for the price easily. I've only moved through the Ultimate Ears line before they were bought by Logitech, never owned any other higher fidelity IEMs.

whats the fastest way to get a replacement from them?



When you're at Amazon, click on the "help" button next to "account" and you can choose that order and do replace and then the reason why. They'll have a shipping label you can print out and that's that. Amazon is good with that stuff. Not sure if they ship out right away or when they receive it.

Thanks for the help guys, I'll try lowering volume on the clip. I'll start at 0 and work up.

My Amazon order's a little weird, I bumped it up to standard shipping (from free) and the delivery estimate went from december 22nd to 10th with no estimated ship date. Hm
