Nice pics! Same here, I went with the ES cable but I miss the longer memory wire of the UE cable. Also, the slider thing on the ES cable seems a little tight on the wires, kind of like it could damage/separate the wires over time. I prefer the simple (but not as cool looking) clear tube that the UE cable uses.
I have a couple minor complaints on the aesthetics - if you look closely you can see imperfections at the joint of the faceplate, tool marks and little bubbles. Also - I'd intended fo the whole body of the earphones to be transparent black, with a clear face plate. As you can see - the inside surface is clear as well. That said, the color pattern has grown on me. Also - the fit is outstanding, I love the sound of these Triple Fi Quads.
So, I busted out the gear tonight and snapped some photos. Excuse the dust on the sensor, I don't ordinarily shoot at that small of an aperture so I don't see it. Out of sight, out of mind, right?
Anyway, you can see some rough edges along the lip between faceplate and some tool marks on the faceplate. These things aren't obvious on casual viewing and don't bother me in the slightest. They fit, and they sound great. That's all I need. Here are the photos.
