I just recently re-cabled my e2c's with some CAT5e wires, and the sound they produce is unbelievable. They sound much better than my shure se530's and the high end is not rolled off a single bit, but that wasn't the reason for re-cabling my earphones. The wire of the right earphone that goes over my ear broke, so i had to replace the entire cable. Here are some pictures:
Drummerdimitri, excellent job of re-cabling! Can you post a simple list of steps for how to take apart the E2C's? I've wanted to re-cable mine for years but can't figure out how to open up the earbuds.
It was fairly simple actually. I took my swiss card's knife and cut through the middle of the earbuds, where both halves of the black and transparent plastic pieces meet. Slowly make your way into the casing with your knife and make sure your change the angle of your knife so that you don't destroy anything if the knife accidentally makes it's way in too quickly which might lead to damaging the drivers. Once your done with your soldering job, just glue both pieces together again with some strong adhesive such as UHU super glue or anything that does the job. That's about it really, there's not much too it! Good luck on your re-cable, hope to hear from your soon after you've finished your re-cabling mission.
