Which cheap earphones have the best wire? (Want to replace wire in X10)

post #1 of 4
Thread Starter 

I've had my Klipsch X10 for a long time now and unfortunately as much as I love the sound I absolutely hate the wires. The jack broke once and I soldered a different one, which worked fine for a few months but now it's breaking up again. Also, I hate how stiff the wire became after some time.

 

Klipsch told me to go f** myself and that they don't repair wires. So my question is: what in your opinion should I do? I want to cut the wires a couple of inches from the earpieces and solder them to another wire set. As far as I can see there's no such thing as replacement wires on the internet, so I want to buy earphones just for the wire. What earphones available in the UK are in your opinion cheap and have a good, unbreakable wire with them?

Sennheiser IE8/7/6, wire is great, and there is basically no microphonics. And interchangeable wires with the IE8 only.

I'm still waiting for that moment in my life when I'll be able to buy a 400$ earphones to cut the wire from them and throw the rest away...

meelectronics m2. Their cable is the best in their price range and overall one of the better cables in the universal world. It's not the best one but up there.

 

It depends on if you want a right angle or 45 degree plug. M2 for right angle, M9 for 45 degree plug. If you have a microphone you could try the M2P or M9P.
