I'd still prefer a detachable, but unlike my gym IEMs I don't intend to abuse costly CIEMs.
It seems like Minerva is using either old or different version after all. I mean I have both Minerva's and clear/silver cables, and those clear/silver cables are really soft yet they are as durables as the first one. Both cables won't turn green over time. I'm more keen on using these clear/silver cables. I might post a pic of both versions, to clarify.
Oh and BTW. Unfortunately it seems that clear shell will turn slightly yellowish over time. I addressed this issue to manufacturer of materials I'm using and representative said it is caused by silicone being in contact with metal (f.e. Balanced Armatures). I will work on resolving this issue. Anyone wanting to change the order due to this problem would be welcomed to do so.
