After just having them recabled by Etymotic, in which they installed an entirely new cable setup (black and braided, unlike the original one), somehow the L headphone's braided wire has become loose at the mid-joint, where both R and L connect and then turn into a single shielded wire heading toward the plug end.
Lucky me, they are now out of warranty. I cannot afford Etymotic's high repair fees, nor a pile of cash for a quality cable upgrade. Anyone have any ideas for me? Also, the connection at the joint on these new cables are so flimsy and delicate, I'm afraid this could just happen again. Before all went wrong, I'd owned these Etys 8 years without any hiccups.
Help please, I use these things on a daily basis and am just dying without them. I am being forced to listen to the loud pumping pop music they play at my gym. Torture! Agony!
