I'm using these cables.http://www.ebay.com/itm/1-2M-Silver-Plated-Upgrade-Cable-Replacement-for-Shure-SE535-SE425-315-215-UE900-/171979530743?hash=item280ac761f7 I also bought some $60 6N OCC cables. It sounded the same to my ears. *shrugs*http://www.ebay.com/itm/6N-OCC-Hybrid-Copper-and-Silver-Plated-Cable-for-Shure-215-315-425-535-and-UE900-/221925530576?hash=item33abcadbd0:g:ZsAAAMXQAx9RLy7UThere was a double blind test done with cables and very few people could tell...
It costs me $50+shipping everytime I need to get the cable replaced. It breaks about once or twice a year for me. I ended up getting the right angle adapters from AWAN on ebay and a shure cable. I think the 90 degree angle is much more durable when I'm laying on the side and wearing it wrapped around my ear. A replacement shure cable only costs $20 on ebay, so if it breaks, it's a lot cheaper to replace. 
This guy is a genius at creating a spatial soundscape of sounds into music. It sounds amazing with the sublime separation and imaging of the etys. :) https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=10Lan4tLZQA

$50 for a recabling.   I went the shure 90 degree angle adapter on ebay with a $20 silver plated cable after my stock one broke twice in a year. It's much better for wearing around the ears too.
I bought a custom cable on eBay. http://www.ebay.com/itm/321657056922?_trksid=p2057872.m2749.l2649&ssPageName=STRK%3AMEBIDX%3AIT   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?   Thanks.
The cables don't have a resistor, only the adapters do. I really enjoy the combo and would recommend it if you like to wear the earphones over your ears.
Do you guys hear crosstalk in this test? http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=hTvJoYnpeRQ   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. http://rover.ebay.com/rover/1/711-53200-19255-0/1?campid=5337413452&toolid=10001&mpre=http%3A%2F%2Fwww.ebay.com%2Fitm%2F321657056922%3F_trksid%3Dp2057872.m2749.l2649%26ssPageName%3DSTRK%253AMEBIDX%253AIT 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! http://www.ebay.com/itm/321657056922?_trksid=p2057872.m2749.l2649&ssPageName=STRK%3AMEBIDX%3AIT   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.
