No connector problems so far, either, as I had with the original Shure cables when first purchased. My interest in my SE215's is rekindled!

Just got mine today. Totally agree with you man! It has once again brought new life into my se215. Was initially using the 535 sadly never had the chance to try this cables on it as i had sold it to get the SE846. Hope the cables pairs well with it when it comes next week that is if i get mine within the first batch. New life was added to it when i paired it with the AK120 now with the new cables its just amazing.

 

In terms of sound. The RC-SE1 improves the sound stage and the bass is definitely much tighter than original cables. (Not too sure if the audible difference is due to the fact the the originals are old and has oxidised as it has turned green in certain parts) So someone with new original cables should try to make the comparison too.

 

Definitely a worthy replacement cable to get. Considering the fact that replacement for original cables are just so damn ex.

Spent 20 minutes with this cable today, because i was thinking of replacing my 2 year-old Westone cable.

 

Sonically, i cannot tell any difference between both cables. Maybe 20 minutes listening time was too short.

 

I was put off by the microphonics. Before i played my music (my customs were already in my ears), i unintentionally brushed the cable along the table's edge and the vibrations were very audible in my ears. This, i was told, was due to the silver in the fiio cable picking up more vibrations than the copper in my Westone cable. Is this true? Does cable material contribute to the microphonics?

 

Next, the jack casing on the demo unit i tried can actually be unscrewed. I didn't unscrew it fully to see what's inside. My rig is an ultra-portable, just phone > customs, so once i reach home (or the office) the customs get unplugged and goes into a case till the next time i need to travel. Not sure if all units have this problem, but I do not want to tighten the casing everytime i plug/unplug my customs.

 

For the price it's a worthwhile switch, but i'm not sure i can live with the microphonics :(

Yupp totally agree with you ... only noticed the sound of the vibration the following day when i brought it out and while i was walking the cables rubbed against my bag creating a noisy sound .. haha

Which model would fit the UE customs with the protruding connectors? I've noticed that some custom 2 pin cables don't work with my UERM because UERM's connector is protruding, unlike other customs.

Hi Kimvictor,

 

Can you post a pic of how your 2-pins cable look like? It would be easier for us to help you this way.

I've been searching for a new Westone cable and this looks great but why is it so hard to find one with music controls....heck I don't even care for an in-line mic, just something that will start/stop/ff/reverse and maybe control the volume....and it's impossible to find! I'm adding this to my Amazon wish list for the holidays anyway though. wink_face.gif

Here you go.

 

The connectors is protruding, not intruding like most ciems.

Sorry if this pic is a bit gross. Ear wax isn't the greatest thing to look at. 

Flushed UE 2 pin connectors.

@ Kimvictor

 

It looks like you'll need the Fiio UE-RC2 Cable.

post #55 of 117

I was wondering, which way do you connect the cable for RC-UE2?

 

Does the R/L letters go inside (like shown below) or outside?

 

post #56 of 117

I believe you are right, the R/L letters go inside.

My TF10 is reshelled with westone sockets, also from UM.

 

I can see a bit of gap when the RC-WT1 cable is fitted, but the sound is still good. You can always file the connectors if you encounter a similar situation.
