I was going to say "smoke", but then I looked again and it was more like... "tar" .
Hm, I sort of think this might've been planned by Vsonic. Just to beat the whole price-to-performance ratio thing in.
And I gotta say, removable cables for sub-$100 IEMs? Hell, IEMs in the region of $50? That should give a wake up to the companies who try get away with non-removable cables on their $300 IEMs.
I have the Somic MH415 that also has removable cables. They were around 15 euros when I bought them locally, and they gave 2 cables on the package (one with mic, one without). SQ isn't quite up to the Soundmagic ES18, but cables are good. I'm just hoping I can use those as backup cables with the VSONIC's since I have a habit of destroying cables.
