Recabled with 4 strands of 26AWG cotton insulated copper wire (SOLID CORE, litz braided). Word of advice, never, ever use it again for flexible application...the cotton insulation unravels and the wire fatigues (since its solid core) and you have a useless cable afterwards. As well, the insulation, because its easy to unravel-too easy, the wires may develop a short at a point where the insulation is gone. Also, kudos to those that do UE recables...the ffing UE connectors are a PITA to solder onto the wire...DON'T ATTEMPT UNLESS YOU HAVE A CRAPLOAD OF TIME. *!^%$*%!$*!$%*&^!$*^!$*

Anyhow, I'll let the pics speak for themselves.

Yeah, I was pretty pissed at this point…..this really sucks. Trip back to UE imminent, my third time back, maybe they’ll let me upgrade to a better pair?

Emailed them, this happened to the two previous pairs I had as well They really need to mold it as one piece, not two. Dunno whats going to happen with the return...Logitech sucks with me (and this was before Logitech acquired UE).
