The cables were horrible and have drove me nuts a few times. To check if its not just me, I gave these to my sister to try (without hinting or warning her) and she couldn't even give these 3 mins before feeling annoyed and returning them to me. Hah.. I can't blame her because that's how i felt too. Not the best impression really..
However, my point here is actually more positive. For those who can relate exactly how it feels, I'd try to assure you that these cables are not impossible
First off they really need some time in adjusting to. Well at least for me, finding the right fit did not happen immediately. It supposed to feel like common sense but it took me regular use to eventually 'get' it.
I think it's important to adjust the clip length to my colar everytime before I use it. It depends on the t-shirt or shirt I wore, even 1-2 cm adjustments makes a big difference in comfort and also easy head movement. As some have also done here - I put them over-ears too. And I can finally say I have reached a comfortable fit now
And also, many found the stock eartips very good, but I have opted for Superlux's eartips (Large, black in color) as the best isolation and comfort as the tips somehow achieves a great seal and locks inside. There's no falling out whatsoever
