shure will replace them if they are under warranty. shure has revised the cable but alot of places are still selling the older compound construction. when i sent mine to shure i wrote them a letter specifically asking for a 2008 model with the updated cable, and they delivered on my wish.
the code is 0038 SE530...
I'm glad I bought a pair of E500PTHs that broke on me XD
And yes, the shop does offer local warranty, but apparently he has his stock shipped from all the way over in the US, which is why for the first year (and once only), the shop actually sends my earphones back to the US for free, which is what happened once before. If I do that again, he'd charge me. I don't know how it'll go if I go to the local Shure service centre though.
