...but they were already epic. So, "amazin" > "epic" ? We have to define/quantify the terms here:ksc75smile:.

...but are they as good as the Vsonic Vektr will be. You know you are gonna buy one of those, Teke!

Just placed an order on Rakuten.co.jp. The list price was 14,076 yen, but somehow they only charged me for 12,767 yen, and that's just about $150 including the 2500yen shipping to US. Did I get a deal or something?

Tough.. I wouls say yes because the Doppio's stem for the cord is at the back of the earphone instead of the middle like the RE-400. So it's easier to get a deeper seal with the Doppio.

Thanks Eric!

I don't get a deep fit with the RE400 anyway. the tips barely get into the earcanal, and i find them well isolating already.

14,076 yen probably includes Japan only sales tax

It's already been mentioned as ET-H1.2CB -  Replacement Cable with Mic and Control Switch for TE-05 with suggested retail price of $59.00
http://webcache.googleusercontent.com/search?q=cache:jgMdgzhi_a8J:eadox.com/EAwebPubDocs/PLretail/Fostex_feb14_retail.pdf+&cd=4&hl=en&ct=clnk&gl=au

UPDATE: 

Just received a reply from Fostex:

 

"We will release the replacement cable within a couple of months, but will not have the cable with control box for TE-05."

 

Sad panda :triportsad:

 

Why?? Why is it so hard to find good replacement cables with in-line mic?? The higher the price of IEMs the rarer it is to offer in-line mics. Even most decent cheapo IEMs have this. I don't see why they think it's not at all necessary to at least include it as an optional accessory...

 

Anyone knows of any replacement cables with in-line mic that will fit TE-05?

Its MMXC unless I am mistaken, which means that the super-cheap UE900 cables work with it ($25 from UE). BUT if you want a really good mic, Shure's mic cable for the SExx5 line uses the MMXC connector and the mic quality is fantastic. Its also a bit longer.

Awesome thanks!

 

Question though: Isn't the UE900 cable that has caused serious QC issues for UE900? Like failing or connection issues within a year?

post #223 of 390
Seems unlikely but..

Could I sleep sideways comfortably while having them on?
Seems like they might stick out of the ears a bit

I've heard of this, with Shures too. I think its usually an issue on the earphone side of the connection though; in my case and others I've read here, it just took a little cleaning with a piece of tissue to fix.
