My W3s have developed a connection problem near the plug - crackles, intermittent connection, etc. Since they are out of warranty Westone offered to replace them for $1xx. The cost, however, is more than getting them reshelled with new cable, I am wondering what the best option may be. Just want to hear others thoughts/opinions. I had UM56s with my previous Westone 2 which I enjoyed very much until I lost them. So I know what custom molds feel like somewhat.
