Nice review Vince. Glad to hear you're enjoying them so much, they've stayed under the radar for quite a while. I agree that EarSonics should include a nicer cable, but on the other hand it's exactly the same one you get with a lot of TOTL's, that being customs come with even less accessories! I have 5 of the same cables lying around now (Deca, 8.2, Aether, Prelude). Not to defend the S-EM9, it could come with nice accessories. But it's more more of a general standard in this pricerange, it's usually the cheaper iems that aim to impress with accessories.
