My Viper i Talk cable arrived from Frank last night. I am more than pleased with it.
I have quickly rushed to take some piccies of it to share with everyone (I got a bit too close with the flash, so will take some better ones later on if anyone wants them)
I have connected it to my Unique Melody reshells of my UE TF10vi's. I instantly noticed a difference between my old cable and the viper. The sound is a lot brighter and crisper than with the original cable.
I hated the stock cable that came with the UEs (I went through 4 cables in less than 2 years), but no-one ever made a cable with mic & remote for them, until I saw a post near the start of this thread.
My first impressions of the Viper i Talk when I took it out of the bag is that it feels a lot more robust cable (in a good way), while still maintaining its light weight and flexibility. The Mic and remote are combined into one unit (unlike the stock cable) and is in a good location on the cable. I have to admit, I have always used the remote a lot more than I do the Mic (I am a lazy bugger and don't want to have to take my iphone out of my pocket to start/stop my music (especially on flights)).
The remote works the same way it did with the stock cable.
1 click: play/pause (or answer/end call)
2 clicks: Next track
3 clicks: Previous track
The actual sound quality between the Viper and the stock cable is noticeable, even to my un-trained ears. The sound is a lot clearer and crisper across the board.
The build quality alone if enough of a reason to get this cable over the stock one, however, the improvements in sound quality (even with my brief testing) makes it a no brainer.
Sorry for the way I have posted the images, everytime I tried to use the insert image button, I got the following message
