Ultimate Ears Triple.Fi. 10 Pro Review
[ZOMBiE CyGiG] ranted at 10:18 PM --- Post#7888187915322810407

I guess its time to review my Triple.Fi. 10. I bought it from Jaben Networks for $555 with a free Go-Vibe Petite amp about a month ago. I had burnt in for roughly 100 hours.

Physical Outlook and Built
These cans are BIG. They protrude out from your ears for roughly 2cm in length, and 1.5cm in height and 0.9cm thick. The body is metallic blue, sort of like alien blue, where the wire connecting part is plastic black. Though they stick out, they do look sort of cool and flashy when worn. The metallic blue body shines under sunlight with a humble "UE" written in the center. The plastic seemed to be tough enough to withstand drops and knocks. When worn, its not as comfortable as most other IEMs, the memory cables irritate my ears as well. It takes some time to get used to it.

Small, Mid, Big, bi-flanged and foam earbuds came with the unit itself, as well as a cleaner, attenuator, extension and a 7.5mm adaptor. The cables are replaceable as well. A common mod is to use to Westone ES2 cables, but this will not be reviewed here.

Score: 6.5/10

The Signature
If u are an X3i lover, u will definitely like the TF10. They got similar signature, where the TF10 feels like a super upgrade to your x3i by crossroads. The sound is rather balanced, yet brightly coloured. The highs, mid and low dun over power each other, yet i dun think they are flat sounding, rather very dynamic. Sort the the sound u get from KSC75 where u will start dancing upon listening.

Those having a love for flat accuray sound may not love TF10's signature, but those pop and rock lovers confirm will! Haha. It even makes Classical sound so lively!

Score: 9/10

Sound Staging and Imaging
One word: Excellent! U can where where each instrument is coming from. U can even tell a specific direction. U can tell how far the instruments are from you. For an IEM the sound stage is superb.

Score: 10/10

Resolution & Clarity
Another straight excellent here. U heard EVERYTHING, small bell, slight dragging echo from a piano, nuances from pulling the violin, bird fluttering as ambiance sound, swallowing of saliva of the vocalist..

And of course noises and distortion from poorly ripped music.

Score: 10/10

The Highs
Highs are exceptionally well in the Triple Fi, though some may find it a bit too harsh. Cymbals and high hats are very vividly reproduces as if u are standing right next to a drum set. U can feel the penetrating crisp into your ear drums on cymbals as well as astonishingly bright high hats.

Electric guitars are well represented as well, which sort of reminds me of that of CK7. Acoustics guitars sounds even nicer on TF10, as all the details and reverberating could be detected.

Score: 10/10

The Mids and Vocals
Nothing special about male and female vocal out there, rather accurate reproduction. Its also hard to tell the voice of which gender sounds better. But its balanced out with the other frequencies such that vocals are never muffled out by the bass or the instruments, unless intended to. Articulation are superbly clear, u will hear every word and pronunciation even in fast raps.

Score: 8/10

The Bass
No muddy bass, the TF10 produced a rather punchy and clear bass. Perhaps not for techno lovers but sound good for rock and pop. Mid bass reproduction is there, but missing the deep deep impactful bass that i love. At some point u can even feel the IEM vibrating in your ear, esp when doing bass test. Surprisingly, given this amount of bass, no clarity of the vocals and highs are masked out, perhaps its due to TF10's triple drivers.

Bass extends to as low as i guess less than 20Hz.

Score: 8/10

Pros: Balanced sound, excellent sound imaging and resolution, Crisp highs
Cons: Uncomfortable, Bass isnt near-perfection yet
Value for money: 8/10 (considering my free Go-Vibe amp, suppose to cost $190)
Most Suited type of Music: Pop and Rock

Overall Score: 9/10
