Cable issues with the Sennheiser MM70i

post #1 of 2
Thread Starter 

Hi there,

 

Recently I kind of ignorantly bought the Sennheiser MM70i earbuds. The sound is great and they fit well, however: THAT CABLE!!! The cable is incredibly annoying. They are asymmetrical (which I don't really hate that much, but I prefer an Y-shaped cable), but the biggest problem is that they go every way you don't want them to go and the cable that goes from the right earbud to the mic is way too long (i know i have to wear it behind my head but till for an asymmetrical chord that part is just way too long). I'll just quote someone's review on amazon which explains the problem well:

 

"The biggest issue is that the cables on the MM 70 have been completely redesigned, and are now a total mess. It's a bizarre hybrid of Y and J style-design that manages to avoid the best of both styles, resulting in cables going every which way but comfortable. And even with the included shirt clip, they don't stay where you want them. Despite the clip, the cables tend to slide everywhere, and if you pull the earbuds out to lay on your shoulders, there's a good chance they'll end up falling off. Speaking of the shirt clip, it's designed to clip onto the thicker part of the cable, but due to the placement of the mic and the Y connector, the clip is so low I feel like I'm clipping it on my stomach! And to top it all off, the connector at the headphone split is heavy enough that even with the shirt clip, it pulls the whole headset down and to the left. The mic now includes volume controls along with the play/pause button, and while the volume buttons are nicely placed and easily found via touch, the play/pause button is so recessed between them that it's hard to press, sometimes taking 3 tries before it works." 

 

Now, is there any possible solution to this? Can I somehow replace the cable? Can I mod it? It is really annoying! 

 

If not, is anyone willing to buy mine? ;) (only used it a few times, then got annoyed and went back to my old Sony earbuds). :P

 

Any help is much appreciated!

 

Best regards,

btw I don't care if the microphone or volume control won't work anymore, never use them anyway.
