I don't hear to many people talking about the tf10's having cable-earpieces connector but I sure hear about shure's having cable problems on at least a weekly basis I would not be surprised if there was a post about it on the front page of the sub forum right now.
well i've had mine for almost a year now. and they're fine. good as new. but i keep them in the little case that comes with it, which i'm sure not many ppl do, so theirs probably won't be in as pristine condition as mine.
also, the driver housing's plastic so i doubt there would be much scratching unless you rubbed against smt really hard

i refute that, i think the shures are built better, designed better, and are as solid as anything else out there,when i had the triple fi there was noticeable gluing on the cable grip and the housings on the super fi series which is essentially the same design has been known to be a little week. the poor cable of earlier se530 models was a design flaw of the cables, not the earphones. notice how all the problems with the triple fi are to do with the housings and connectors and the majority of shure problems are of those that purchased earlier models. i also bet you would have more problems getting ultimate ears to exchange your broken housings than shure replacing cables. you see shure recognised the problem and did a good job by resolving the problem, theres been plenty of housing problems throughout the super fi line and what did ultimate ears do, they designed the triple fi the exact same way...problem not solved, i have not had any problems with the triple fi personally but you have to take into consideration the build design, its obvious that the triple fi wastes more space inside the earphones because they are huge and that wasted space means its more hollow, and hollow space is weaker than filled space.
