I have the RE-400 for like 6 months and already had to have them repaired once [jack broke off - had it replaced by a single, non-angled piece - awesome]
Now [1 month after the jack fix] the cable is causing trouble again [sound drop offs].
I suspect it's either just above the jack or at the earpiece-split part, or both.
The cable is just a bitch. It tangles, it kinks... isn't flexible at all.
Rolling it up into a hardcase [which I unfortunately received just now] might slow its wear down but...
I try to be as gentle as possible with it but with use the cable effectively destroys itself over time... No way around that.
It just kinks at certain spots and there is massive stress on these parts... It even tangles overtime on its own...
It is a shame as I really feel like the shells and drivers themselves are build really well, plus the amazing sound they offer.. but the cable just kills it :/
The fact that the RE-600 uses the same cable exterior is ridiculous and stupid.
