I had my shure e500 for about 7 months now and the wire connecting the earpiece is fraying. I 'm wondering if these headphone are that fragile that the wire can break so easy. It also seems that when I put the earphone in my ear the wire goes up and around the ear in an unnatural position thus causing the wire to break easier. I'm going to ask for a replacement from shure but wondering if I should look elsewhere if these IEM are that fragile. Does anyone else around here have this problem before. Thanks.
