Suggestions for Reinforcing - or Recabling - HiFiMan RE-400 IEMs

post #1 of 2
Thread Starter 

I just bought a set of HiFiMan RE-400 IEMs and I'm amazed by quality of sound they produce.  However, I can already see problems happening, sooner rather than later, with: (1) the extremely thin earshell-to-y-junction cables; (2) the absence of any strain relief at the point where the cables enter the earshells; and (3) the durability of the cable from the y-junction to the plug.  I would like to prevent any problems by reinforcing the cables and adding strain relief, but I'm not sure how to do it.  I am a complete novice when it comes to audio equipment DIY with anything more complicated than repairing a frayed power cord.  

 

Any suggestions you have would be greatly appreciated!  And if this kind of DIY project is something that a novice like me should probably not attempt, then I would appreciate any suggestions about where I could get the RE-400s recabled by someone who has the skills and knowledge necessary to do it right.

 

Thanks in advance for any help you can offer.

 

Keep smilin' and keep listenin'!
