A question for anyone can help me: Klipsch S4 eartips do not fit me (any size). I always have to buy 3rd party eartips like Comfy Foam tips to connect to my Klipsch S4s.

If the S4s do not fit my ears, then obviously the X10s won't fit me either because they use the same Klipsch X10 eartips?

Thanks.

I can't bring myself to pay $85 for a pair of headphones with dubious reviews on amazon. It looks like the older reviews (> 3 years) were great, but recent reviews were bad...

i don't know where people are getting the idea that this, or any other, earphones are "noise-isolating". i still hear the cars that pass by as i'm walking or running. i still hear that loud asian lady scream at her phone at costco. i still hear all the dishes banging being washed even though i'm in my room.....
I'm not sure what you think noise isolating is suppose to mean but forming a full seal and blocking out 20-30 db of noise would fit isolating in any reasonable expectation of the description.

I think you are expecting them to be noise silencing which of course no headphone is.

These isolate plenty of noise as when I use them at work people have to tap me on the shoulder to get my attention. However I can still hear really loud noises because again they aren't completely silencing.

By now, no one cares about the X10 going on sale ... It wasn't worth flipping after the cyber monday sale.

thanks for the clarification. i honestly did believe "noise-isolating" meant block all sound. I have those MEElectronics with the triple flanges. works nicely, but still was expecting pure silence from the outside world. ahhh.... pure silence from the outside world. sounds so heavenly.

the eartips for the x10's are different than the S4's, so not necessarily

I just sent mine back from the black Friday sale. Very disappointed in the sound quality and the fit. It was very muddy sounding and constantly slipped out of me ears at the slightest tug.

Bought some Monster iLife buds (I know) that actually stay in my ears for $30.

the tubbing where the wire meets the tube crack, very common on the x10. Still waiting for my replacement pair from Klipsch.
Good info. I've had mine for more than 12 months. I guess I "baby" them as I wrap them around my fingers and put them into the pouch after each time I use them.

I can see how this is a problem though for a lot of people who use these are their primary/main IEMs.

They slipped out even with the largest tip size? Wow you'd be the perfect candidate for the UE10s as they hurt most people's ear canals. You have some huge ear canal openings or you didn't shove the tips way into your ears how you are supposed to. With a bad fit even a $500 IEM will sound like crap. That's the bad part about non-custom molded earphones.

These do come with a double flange tip but I think they sound less clear and more muddy beacause there is a longer path from the armature to the ear. They do block more outside noise than the single flange tips.

ebay is the worst place to sell. set up fee probably cost $10 bucks already, + commission fee, +paypal fee. That's three fees.

at Amazon, you only need to pay the commission fee. The commission fee of Amazon is pretty low.

You'll definitely go into a deficit if you sell on eBay with these. The only way I can see you making $ on these are to buy them now and stock them up. Wait until they have discontinued, you then can resell them brand new at retail value. I don't know how long though. I wish I could have done it for the Shure SE530. It's not hard to sell a brand new pair of SE530 for $499.99 on Amazon.
Wat? IIRC Amazon charges you a 15% fee vs (fixed price) .50$ insert fee + 7% (5% after first 50$ or something) + 2.9% paypal.

15% Amazon fee > 9.9% or less + 50 cents.

"the eartips for the x10's are different than the S4's, so not necessarily"

Lol no, unless you mean the X10 comes with more eartips, which is true. The fit is also different since you can only wear the S4 cable up and can't insert the S4 as deep. Also the S4 has too much shitty bass and nothing else.

"How many lbs are the gold parts?"

Didnt think the deal would still be live, wonder if amazon is trying to clear these out for good since they have been discontinued for a while now.

The ear pieces are clear so that you can better see your ear wax.

What happened? Did they cables rip or the casing fell apart?

I find the UE10s are stunning in terms of clarity, levels of detail, treble extension and sparkly sound quality for IEMs. To me the X10s don't even compare. I guess it depends what you prefer and what music you listen to (the UE10s have a V sound shape that is perfect for the electronica/trance/club music genre I listen to). The UE10s have poor to average mid-range which makes them less ideal for some genres of music. Though far from perfect, the extremely fast pace and speed, snappy rhythm, awesome PRaT and bass punch, combined with the lively treble just strikes a perfect tone with modern fast-paced music on UE10s that none of its competitors have been able to match at under $300. Most people consider the UE10s superior to most sub-$300 IEMs in sound quality for electronica/club/house/trance/dub-step. However, I find the UE10s extremely uncomfortable over more than an hour of use.

I don't think most people would put UE10s and X10s on the same level in sound quality. The UE10s in some ways still compete with modern flagships from other companies.

"The Triple.Fi 10 is not a perfect IEM. It lacks the refinement the way some of the newer IEMs like the UM3X and the Westone 4 are tuned. Personally I don’t even use the TF10 mostly because of the awful fit, but from what I gathered from observing the enthusiast’s circle, the Triple.Fi 10 must be THE most universally loved IEM spanning the period of the last ~4 years." ~ October 30, 2012

The UE10s have an almost cult-like following if you get a good fit or mold them. Their successor the UE900 is $400. The X10s are nice for sure but it's not the same league of sound quality.
I had my connector die once, sound would only play if the connector was held at a certain angle. And the second time.... [imgur.com]

I mostly agree with what you say. It's just that for me, the TF10 is an improvement in SQ, but not by all that much, and comes with it's own disadvantages. I just can't listen to TF10s for an extended amount of time. It's just too uncomfortable and the sound signature too fatiguing. And for me, that's a deal breaker.
