So I just sent Sleek Audio an email, and asked for a replacement. They told me to ship it in, and they'll send the replacement ASAP. Kudos to Sleek Audio for their customer service, btw.
But the replacement cable I received had the exact same issue I was having on the ones I sent in: the L cable was exposed at the plug!
I decided to live with it, and when it got really bad in a few months, I decided to just order a new pair of replacement cables from B&H recently. Surely, these can't be as bad, right?
Nope. Exact same issue, also on the left cable:
If I have to pay ~$20 every 2 months or so, doesn't it defeat the purpose of replaceable cables? Even though I like the sound of the SA6, I'm highly inclined to sell them at the moment for something more durable...
The only pair of good cables I've seen are on the pair that I bought off these forums for my girlfriend. They are still good, and don't have the rubber tearing issue. Does Sleek Audio just have bad Quality Check?
