That's not the new style cable, it's a two-wire braid all the way, whereas the new cable will have a four-wire braid below the Y-split. I think Phil mentioned that he will offer the new cable for free to those who bought a CIEM with the older cable. I have no issues with this cable, but I'm looking forward to the clear cable when it comes out, which I think will aesthetically match up to the smoke shells better :)
Fit-wise, the left side now seals great, but the right side is still slightly loose. Which is a bit odd, considering that with universal IEMs I had more fit problems with my left ear.
I love clear cables but the problem is that it turns green, which makes it look disgusting. :(
The nail polish you want to use isnt really nail polish. It is called "top coat", It is basically clear nail polish/gel but it is applied on top of already colored nails to protect nail polish from chipping. You can get it anywhere really. I use it on my JH16s and it works great. To fully dry, i let it sit overnight. Depending on thickness of coat, It wont be 100% clear after it dries (its mostly clear with a little white when it dried) but it is very hard and should feel like the acrylic the earpiece is made of.
Which brand do you use? I let mine sit for overnight and even for two days straight, once they warmed up in my ear it just felt like mush.
