I bought a custom cable on eBay.
One of the connectors is much looser than the other and the connection breaks apart easily. It takes about 1/3rd of the force to pull that connector off compared to the other side.
Has anyone had this happen to them? Did you come up with or find a fix?
Do you guys hear crosstalk in this test?
I heard about 10% crosstalk with the stock Etymotic cable.
I just bought these cables with the Shure MMXC adapters from AWWAN and there's ZERO crosstalk.
It makes me wonder if...
I got a replacement set of stock etymotic cables and the crosstalk was still there.
I then bought a set of aftermarket shure cables with the adapter for my etymotics and there was absolutely no crosstalk at all!
It's curious to me why Etymotic would choose to have crosstalk in their cables.
It's mostly breaking at the same spot. It breaks on the joint of the left earphone. I wear these over the ears on my bed. I lay on my right side so it's not even the left side that's being pressed down. The 90 degree one seems like it'd work well for wearing over the ears, especially when laying down since there's less protruding out.
Hmmm I'm going to need one that's cheaper to replace or figure out how to use it so that it doesn't break in a couple of months. I'm not sure why it broke on my three times this past year. I've had the ER4 for 10 years now and aside from the three times past year, it's broken on me twice total in those 10 years.
