- The Court of the Crimson King
I used them only for running, and the fact that they have such an ludicrously long cable had finally gotten to me. So I decided to cut it, and solder on a new plug. BAD PLAN. The hot and ground cables really aren't insulated from each other in any useful way. I can't believe these cables don't fail more. Once cut, there was NO WAY to keep the ground and hot from touching. I tried several times by re-cutting at a new spot -- no use. The 202 really cannot have it's cable trimmed in this way. Just an FYI in case anyone else ever wanted to try it.
