The intended purpose of the 1.1m 3.5mm cable is to use it exclusively with portable electronics. You do not want a lot of lax cable around when plugging in the PM-1 to a device that is in your pocket, bag, backpack, etc, which is why we went with a 1.1m length cable.
Some people are using it outside of our original intention, such as with a personal computer or table top amplifier, in which the 1.1m cable does not have significant length. For these applications, we are looking into longer 3.5mm cables, but I do not have a release date or pricing for this longer accessory.
So the PM-2 will likely have the same 1.1m 3.5mm cable when it ships in July.
Thanks for the clarification. I only use the short cable with portable devices and for me 48 inches is the perfect length. (Not too long, not too short.)
On another note, can you confirm that the denim bag will also be included with the PM-2 ? Because the denim bag is really useful with the PM-1, much more useful than the wooden box ;)
