7 December 2010
Summary: I really like them, they are not as crisp as my sennys and the soundstage is more narrow (to be expected from iems) but their bass is noticeably better (it extends much better) and they are very enjoyable to listen to, I do not think there is any "burn in" time on them because of the armature drivers, but I will continue listening to see if anything changes.
Pros: punchy bass, good extension in both bass and treble, excellent isolation, warm, easy to drive, good build quality
Cons: warm, not as analytical as others, weird fit for some
Summary: Well, I got this on Black Friday 2010 for below $100, what can I say, this thing is worth beyond every dollar I spent for me thanks to dramatic drop of the price. This guy is currently tagged at $250 price range. So, here is what I wanna say: this headphone is probably too good for me All I have is a Sony extender which connects my Triple Fi 10 to my Asus Xonar DX as far as I listen, I can often hear the background gitter due to electric interference from the sound...
Summary: As a sound engineer, I am fussy about audio and the UE Triple Fi 10's have made me a happy man. Right out of the box they sound fantastic, despite a slight problem with fitment. After a short play with the different buds, I settled on the Comply buds and they provided a decent seal. Overall they are great, and I use them for listening enjoyment direct from my iPod, and also mixing on my laptop, and the resulting mixes prove the Triple Fi's are a good reference!
Summary: I bought these to replace my old friends; the UE Super Fi 5, that broke after 7 yrs due to MY mishandling. I'll try to keep this short as SO MUCH has been written about these classic earphones! I'm a longtime audiophile (30+ yrs!). TT - Linn LP12/Lingo/Ittok IV/Ortofon Blaupunkt, CD - Arcam FMJ CD 23T, Amp - Music Reference RM9 (tube), Preamp - Audio Research LS15 (tube), Phono Preamp - Audio Research PH3 (tube) , Spkrs - Spendor S100, this makes up the bulk of my...
Summary: I must have HUGE ear canals, because with the large silicone tips provided in the box, I got a perfect fit with an impeccable seal! Now i simply get the most amazing sounds ever from an IEM i've owned, and i've owned MANY! I must amend to say that the simply stellar sound quality extends to FLAC (lossless) sources. The TF 10's tend to struggle a bit with mp3's. Even the 320 and V0 quality files. You lose about 10-20% of the sound stage and depth with mp3 files.
Pros: clarity and instrument separation. bass. highs are superba!
Cons: lacks transparency with mp3's even 320. ever so slight sibilance in the vocals sometimes
Summary: I'm a self-professed headphone junkie. And, while I wouldn't consider myself an audiophile, I do have a BFA in music so I have a pretty well-developed ear. That being said, these earphones reveal details I've never heard in songs I've listened to a thousand times. Before buying these, I used the Super.Fi 5 Pros for about two years and I loved them. Then, I bought the Shure SE530 based on all the glowing reviews I had read.
Summary: Just when I thought it was safe to assume that the UE Super.fi5 was the ticket I decided to try the UE Triple.fi10's. I received them in a roadie case numbered(977 out of 1000) which is kind of interesting if indeed only 1,000 pcs. were made in the blue color. If not, who cares based on what my ears had heard. The sound emanating from these stylish & slightly bulky earphones was so astonishing that I actually got my wife to listen & she too was quite amazed.
Summary: FLAT-OUT UNBELIEVABLE. I ALSO HAVE A NEW PAIR OF SHURE E-500, A NEW PAIR OF GRADO 225 AND ETYMOTIC ER-4P. I JUST CANT EVEN COME UP WITH WORDS TO DESCRIBE THESE EXCEPT TO SAY AGAIN.....FLAT-OUT UNBELIEVABLE.
Summary: I do not actually own these headphones, however I am currently at war with myself about spending $400, which I can not afford, on new IEM's. The reason for this battle is my trip to MacWorld in January. I was able to spend some serious time traveling from booth to booth, listening to various headphones.
Summary: Hi everyone. This is the story of how I came to own the magnificent UE Triple.fi 10 Pro headphones. About a year and a half ago, I purchased a pair of Super.fi 5 Pro headphones from Guitar Center; I loved these headphones - They were comfortable and gave me great sound on all types of music. My only complaint about the Super.fi was their build quality - I had to RMA the super.fis after about 6 months and then a year later, I had to call UE back for a second RMA number.
