LOL, I understand what you're saying. Do at least test the tape over the nozzle though :p If need be, I'll send you a tiny bit of tape to do it. Does Fed-Ex work for you? :p LOL, JK.
I see you like the UE cable ;) Although a lot don't (some feel the memory wire is not stiff enough), I actually like it a lot too. Now, the real problem would be finding a Shure SE535 that could match the blue cable :p
The memory wire is less of an annoyance than the Shure rubber cable that grabs just about any fabric and sticks. I'll take the braided UE and Westone cables over that any day. If I can get the blue one somewhere (recommendations welcome!) I'll just mate it with some clear SE535's and all will be right in the world... (I will try the tape fist though).
