Sorry if this has been beat to death, search string "interchangeable cable" and "removable cable" didn't come up with much,

Other than the IE8, what other portables/IEMs allow for changing out cables? I have spent a lot of $$$ on earbuds, IEMS, and other portables over the years and they ALL eventually end with frayed/cut/broken wiring connections. I don't know how many perfectly fine drivers I have thrown out in the past because of some cabling failing that probably didn't cost much at all.

So I pretty much refuse to spend any more big $ on portable cans unless they allow me to swap the cables.

thx much!

The majority of the upper-end Ultimate ears product line.

Also, sleek audio has an interesting cable attachment. an actual jack on each monitor.

a few more, that i can't recall at the moment. IMO it's a valuable feature. One of the reasons i bought a super.fi 5 pro, which i've already had to replace the cable once due to oxidization.
