So, as the title says. Personally, I prefer the Sennheiser cabling for its high-end IEMs. So soft, flexible, and strong! Not to mention zero microphonics!

You expect people to have used/owned all of those? Or do you want a popularity contest....

Indeed. That's the way these polls always go. Also, the Monster Turbine Pro line uses a different cable from the Jamz line.

anywho, most of the phones mentioned have removable cables, if they feel lacking in anyway, you could just go out and buy a replacement

My vote is for the Westone cable. I'm assuming the Westone UM3X (which I have never had) uses the ES Cable (which I used with my UE SF5Pros). I loved the suppleness of that cable and the very low microphonics. The braiding also looks cool and I noticed significant improvement in detail over the stock UE cable. I only had it for about 3 months so I can't speak much to its durability though. I now have the Shure 535 and love the tank-build quality of the cable but find the microphonics slightly too high (in comparison to the ES Cable from Westone).

Yeah, including detachable cable earphones in a poll for the best cable is a bit ironic. My vote goes to the CK100 on the basis of what I have read here. I've read that Shure also packs in quite a substantial cable with all their earphones, but the cable on DBA-02 seems a bit iffy from the pictures. (specially at the strain releifs).

I don't own any of these btw.

From what i`ve tried. The order is from best to worst:

Westone um3x (fixed cable)

Qjays

Meelectronics m6

Sennheiser cx550

Meelectronics m11+

UE tf10

Did not vote btw

Wow - the cable that came with my SF5Pros which is purportedly the same as on the TF10 would rank as worst ever IMO.

Yes its very weird that ue use that cable, beats me considering the price of the Tf10`s

even at the current low price, the cabling is still a huge disappointment...not to mention the original going price...
