I only have two issue (which I hope you guys can help me with):
1. The cable coils way to much making it difficult for me to stay mobile comfortably.
2. Because there is no memory wire behind the ears, the cable keeps flopping over my upper ear (seriously annoying).

Do you guys have any fixes for these problems?

Thanks

Doesn't the wire point downward? So it doesn't touch the ear anymore?
Mine used to be behind the ear memory wire but now it just goes straight down and is way more comfortable. sounds a lot better tooo of course. Which iem do you have?

Try turning the iem so that the wire points down.
That should work.

Oh because yours is custom thats why... Darn that sucks. I thought if it was universal you could turn it. You may have to re custom it a different way.

For UM Miracles owners what would you choose BW or SW? I listen mostly vocals.
post #4581 of 7168
I would go for the BW since the SW might be a bit bright.

For JH16's SW's hands down. The gold cuts the brights and the SW cable is fantastic.

I have listened to SP and it isn't my taste. What are the differences between BW and WW? Do the BW sound warmer and more midbass?

Hey Frank, any reason why there can't be a White Widow IEM cable? I don't see it listed.

This was a cable that i made some time ago, as it's the non OM CIEM cable. It had been in the bag for some time coiled up, so after a long period of being left like that, the cable can end up with a slight coil to it. I have sent you a PM with how to fix this, otherwise you can also send it back to me and i would be happy to straighten it out for you, only takes a minute.

I can offer them, but don't list them as i find it a little on the thick side.

Aren't all 26 AWG cables the same thickness?

The outer diameter of the sleeving on the WW is slightly thicker then any of my 26/25.5AWG cables.

Ah, that's why. But the BW is the same size as say the Scorpion right?

The outer diameter of the 26AWG BW is only 0.1mm thicker then the 26AWG Scorpion.
