I like the IEM, but I HATE the cables. I would like to find the guys at Shure & Westone that have decided that thick memory wire for earloops on very small and light IEMs is a good idea - and then punch them in the throat.

I could buy the Fiio replacement cable for the SE215 for $35 - and I might do that.

I also thinking of trying a couple of these newer affordable FOTM IEMs that have surfaced in the last couple of years.

Has anyone tried any of these? I'm always such a sucker for cheap audio gear - but when I really sit back and look at the gear that I have actually enjoyed the most, it's nearly always the stuff where I actually stepped-up and paid more to get more. Go figure...

that fiio cable is so stiff....... with pretty bad microphonics :(

Maybe a few. I have seen the 8 series quite a few times in Melbourne.

I traded quite a few emails with BTG. I have purchased his removable cable mod and I'm sending him the headphones. However, the budget cable can't be used for the removeable cable - I don't really understand why - but he wouldn't do it - he said it has the be the more expensive CIEM cable. So - I'm not getting a new cable from him yet. I want to see what I get back from him after the mod. It might be good enough as is, or I might get another cable - I'll have more options once they are turned into an RC.
