Hmm...Mate, I don't think filing down the pins is good idea that you had to resort too...I think going with just UE socket connectors would have been the better choice, as opposed to having to go through the trouble of ruining the pins, or lessening it's quality. You wouldn't file down a 3.5mm jack to a 2.5mm jack, now would you?
I guess in a sense, it's kind of like removing that fine gold-plated coat on the pins/jacks.
Just saying..It's your item, so you have the rights to do as you wish, I suppose.
Just went with what people here told me to do haha. Westone style cables used to be pretty popular for the TF10 so yeah. Haven't noticed a difference in SQ vs the stock cable.
@H20, obviously my suggestion isn't perfect but just throwing an option out there.
