I teresting. I have a bad case of cable failure coming up i'm guessing. If anyone remembers the set i superglued in an attempt to lower the bass... Well look at this.
Not the best photo, but the cable has come out of the housing a good amount. You can see the glue is lower down the cable. I can also easily push the cable back into the housing,
Here's my issue... I've barely used these. I have been using my other set. These haven't been slept on, yanked or anything. Just gently used and gently wrapped and stored in their pouch. That doesn't seem good to me. It also shows that the superglue obviously didn't get into the groove or bond well. Cheap crap.
Pretty much the same that happened on my first (then borrowed) pair:
Though, after having seen the inside, I can tell you that's only the cable isolation coming lose from the strain relief. Just push it back and secure it with glue again.
Too bass light to warrant further tests. I'd rather concentrate my efforts on finding a happy medium. So far I've tried varying amounts of cotton wool, but the result has always been too bassy.
I need to try something with higher acoustic resistance next.
