I've got the new and I've not had any problems in my 14 months ownership of the 335.

What is the purpose of the new connectors?

More contact points, larger contact area, more force required to disconnect, most likely rated with a higher number of connections/disconnections.

 

The new contact most likely have less overall electrical resistance too.

If I were to detach and re-insert the cables once a day, how many days would it function until breaking?

Why would you ever want to do that...

To store it in it's carrying case, so how long would it last. Why, do you just leave yours in?

What kind of question is that?

Once a day? Sounds like doing it just for fun...

Let me rephrase that then since it is so difficult to understand. How durable are the connectors?

Let me put it this way to you.

 

I've got quite a number of friends here who are Fitear owners, and they also own several after market cables. 

None have got any issues with the connectors whatsoever yet.

 

Does that answer your question somewhat?

Yes, thank you.

It is always in your best interest to not detach the cables every day. No IEM will last long if you do that. And frankly, no one does that.

I just wrap the cord up like an undetatchable cabled IEM and store it in my case that way. No need to remove it after each use.

FitEar connectors are springloaded and thicker so they!re a good deal stronger than the westone style pins that are the standard in the industry.

Saw this on Fitear's fb. Want to try but I can't be at the Headphone Festival this week. :(

Why wouldn't they last long though. I know it is different but on a headphone jack you can plug in and out all you like and they don't break. Why should an IEM be any different?

Tree trunks tend to be thicker than toothpicks.
post #2940 of 4919
They aren't that much thicker.. Especially not the analogy you used. In photos they appear 1/2 the width, if that.
How do you explain 2.5 mm cables also being durable in that case then.
