Mine broke. The front part of the headphone that holds the tip just separated from the back part (the part with the metallic green paint). I've since purchased three new pairs of full size open headphones, which I enjoy, but I'm still left without a good IEM.
The Triple.Fi 10s were definitely one of my favorite headphones I've had, and arguably the best value.
That's why I've given up owning expensive iems and instead just play with a pair for a few weeks and sell it off knowing they won't last long. In general, iem don't last very long even if when taken care off. So many stories of balanced armature drivers failing for no reason.
Despite owning 3 pairs in the past, I never considered the tf10 to be all the great. For just music enjoyment they sound great but when compared similar priced iems, it's just meh. Yes it has decent sound stage and bass is tight is reaches low but lacks punch and the treble can get a little harsh sounding at times along with recessed mids and poor instrument separation.
