Guy A buys IEM in Jan 08
Cable gave way in Mar 09
Guy A has no choice but to buy a brand new pair even though the drivers are still functioning.
guy pissed off at company for building in obsolescence to their supposedly premium product decides that his next IEM will have removable cables.

guy goes and buys a competitors product

guy loves new IEM's and tells all his friends how much better they are than the UE set he used to have with their crappy cables

I have to say that I wasn't impressed with their appearance in the Engadget post, but I think the ilounge pictures make them more appealing. I especially like the translucent blue/red coloring in order to denote left/right.

That's another way to look at things but majority of earphones in the market doesn't come with replaceable cables so unknowing customers might think that it's the norm and thus the above might not happen.

The ES2 cable does wonders to fine tune the SQ and comfort level of the SF5pro. If only I could use the same cable on my SA6

i think sleek audio should jump all over the fact that ue is moving away from replaceable cables & use it as a marketing strategy...

hehe as long as you dont have to wear it over the ear the cable should be fine :P my ER6i lasted a long time. but the shure's just cant cope after 1 year i went through 2 pairs.. but having said that the TF10 stock cable still very good even after 6 month. But i do like the shure cable its easier to put on.

So I have the 700s on order from SoundEarphones. Hopefully he will be able to ship them within a week. I see they are in stock on Logitech's site.

'In short, like Etymotic’s ER-4P, q-JAYS sounds accurate but a little flat, while UE700 sounds more a little more dynamic and exciting. Different listeners obviously have different preferences, but we’ve very much liked the recent trend of judicious EQ bumps in higher-end earphones, and Ultimate Ears 700 delivers. The only people who won’t be thrilled with its sound are those seeking more clinical-sounding audio, heavy bass, or even wider frequency response; typically, they’ll need to consider bigger and/or more expensive earphones to achieve these ends."

I'm liking the dynamic comment. Over the past couple of months, I've come to enjoy a more dynamic sound rather than analytical. I'm always looking for IEMs that are fun! Hopefully mine will be shipped soon from SoundEarphones!

Wow, i scale the UE 700 photo to 1:1 ratio based on the jack size and compared to my CK100. Both equal size, only differences in bore shape and wire position.

Puts things into good perspective..

BuT the 700 is much much cheaper :-P

Read it. Buying them!

EDIT: ajmiarka, I liked the 'dynamic' comment too. The TF10 never sounded analytical to me, but they were still incredibly detailed, so I'm curious to hear the 700s. Tiny and shiny, perfect
