Personally, if I were to own them again, I'd probably just shave off the tabs so I wouldnt have to worry about cable fitment anymore. As for the replacement cable, their CSR's are insanely easy going, and will probably just end up hooking you up with a free replacement. That being said, lets try not to abuse that privilege
well, they answered by that I can BUY a new cable.. let's look at the price, I hope to receive news from them ASAP. I'll update here soon!
