Is the Sennheiser IE 8i 's cable not compatible with the IE 8? - Page 3

post #31 of 37

Pretty much, and it takes a bit to get one.  I ordered mine on 8/18 and it just arrived today.  I took about a week to ship from the UK to Boston, so it was about a month for them to get it in from Sennheiser and a week in shipping.  OVerall, it's nice to have iPhone controls and a mic but the cable quality does not seem to be as good as the original, much more plasticy.  For $64, I suppose it's worth it but that still seems to be a high price to pay.  The TF10Vi cable is only $25.

The cable is now finally a stock item! All those with backorders will get theirs very soon.

 

Sorry for the wait.

 

Regards

Great so this is the only place in the world to order an IE8i cable...  Awesome.

 

I just ordered mine.  Let's see how long it takes.  They say a week.


Boy they gotcha by the satchell alright.

I just ordered my IE 8i replacement cable from custom cables as well.  Kinda skeptical about the quality.  Can anyone comment on how their cables are holding up?  Much appreciated.

Well, I've had my IE8i cable for a few years (ordered it back when this thread was started actually) and it still works fine after many hours of listening and many times of being put in my coat pocket. Of course, my IEM cables never seem to break unlike those of many others, so YMMV I guess. But there shouldn't be anything horribly wrong with the quality of it at least.

Actually it's way cheaper at the official Sennheiser spare parts webshop: http://headphonespares.sennheiser.co.uk/portable-headphones/ie-8i/cable-ie8i-standard-35mm---120cm-542182.html

Thank you for the heads up didn't realise the price difference. In the interest of fairness we are now matching this and doing the same price.
