A couple years ago I purchased the Shure E500s. They sound great, however the cable is getting rigid and the wire was exposed in one area before I covered it up with some sugru. I think this is a major complaint with the E500s.
While I am normally a DIY type of guy, I don't think I have the heart to bust open these earphones. Can anyone recommend a hobbyist here or a company that will perform a recable with some extras? I've reached out to 1964 ears, but they would only re-cable when they put new molds/shells on and that doesn't get me everything I want and costs a bunch.
A new cable that is durable
Cable that has built in smartphone controls for Play/Pause, Back/Forward
OPTIONAL: inline controls has mic and/or volume adjustment
OPTIONAL: detachable cable (although I know this would require remold/shell)
Any direction here would be greatly appreciated, I have already poured in a couple hours looking into cables and trying to find ones that have built in controls and I'm now I think I need some expert advice.
As promised. I just got home and the first thing I did was test out my new earphones. They both work great and Brian knocked it out of the park and all within a week!
Now if I just had as much luck with the new Westone cable I purchased for these earphones, I would be set. The wiring in the right channel is faulty and cuts in and out at best, most of the time it doesnt work. I confirmed the issue was with the cable and not the earphones, so this has nothing to do with BTG Audio. Luckily I have a replaceable cable now, so I can return this one and get another.
