Can you guys tell which cable is faulty?

 

The cable one the left has been used few enough times I can count it on one hand, the cable on the right gets plugged in and out of my ipod shuffle about 10 times a week and is used for about 10 hours of sweaty exercise a week

They do tangle like hell after a while. mine too but they do lok better that your cable on the right :D

The cable on the left has barely been touched, the one on the left is put through some stress testing so to speak.

 

I went out for a walk and decided to use my clean barely used cable on the left to find out after just a few uses its faulty, the connector seems to have loose cabling inside and most of the time I seem to get audio out only one ear.

 

I can only assume I'm rather unlucky, not that I've been as active on the thread recently but I haven't seen other people with issues, considering the fact that my messy cable goes through hell and has held up I can only assume I got a dud.

If anyone else has issues, it seems it is indeed a small percentage of bad cables. Fairly understandable for the new tech in this.

Estron will replace the cable free if bought from Cosmic Ears and it's a genuine problem

EDIT: Just a note, Phil helped me out with this in a matter of minutes. Very appreciated!

EDIT EDIT: Minutes after filling out the form I got contacted by Estron, so far so good, time to send my cable away. </3

Just got my replacement cable from Estron nice personal message included and 2 1/2 weeks it is not such a bad turnaround time. - problem is they send a cable with a different connector than the one I sent so I cannot use it! :) Just dropped an email to Estron let's see how this will go!

Mine has been tangly since day one, but it never lost signal. In all honesty, I never had a cable that tangles so much, I have to be very careful. Does that count as faulty....?

It's a weird cable that tangles if you try to wind it up. I let it find it's own form now instead of winding and it seems to work. It was very frustrating winding it up to put it away and no sooner I put it down it would just twist and tangle...

I am still amazed by how durable it is compared to how fragile it looks. I also think it sounds great.
