I've had conversations with Peter about detachable cables; he's definitely working on them and recognizes that many, many head-fiers want them in silicone monitors --- it takes time to get the results consistent, though. What Spiral does with the removable cables (two-pin, no less) is remarkable. ACS has a proprietary connection, and Sensaphonics has the MMCX soldered to a PCB board. That makes failure less likely, though at higher cost. Sensaphonics' existing relationship with Shure gives them an advantage in sourcing parts, etc. so I suspect removable cables will take a bit more time to complete R&D and implementation for Peter. As for the stock cables right now, they're identical to what Minerva uses, and what I suspect many companies are using --- same source provider. If Peter's cables fail, then so do many other companies'.
