I had a minor issue with only one of over 25 sets I've modded. A bit of alcohol on a Q-Tip took care of drop outs that were present on just one set.
I tried the V-Moda cable...Meh. It tangles more easily than the stock cable and offerrs no improvement in sound, IMO. I like the stock cable better than the V-Moda cable, by far.
