    No offence but you seriously broke your K10 pins 5 times? What on earth were you doing with them! I change my cable regularly between a Linum SuperBax and a short Forza AudioWorks Hybrid IEM that I use for my ES100 and I have never had a problem. They pull out and fit in smoothly. I have changed cables probably over 100 times without incident...

    How odd. I have never had a 2 Pin IEM fail on me connection wise before. MMCX, plenty before getting into the more high end realm.

    I did have a socket come out on my TF10 taking the cable off once. But that's the only issue ever in years with anything I have owned and all have been 2 pin.

    Agreed, 5 times is too much. Nevertheless, you should avoid all 2-pins options. Bcos you are either doing it the wrong way all/most of the times or you simply hate this "penatration" method :beyersmile:

    jokes aside, its your money, buy products according to your usage habit.

    Tried the new Audio Technica ath-l5000 yesterday. My Katanas sound better, and have more low end.

    I confess, I broke pins before, because i placed my iems in my pocket!

    You should make a small round carrying case for them.

    Oh, how I love coming across older @FullCircle designs. This one is a K10 and will be featured in the next week or so.​

    Watch parts? Who the heck would want something like those in a CIEM?

    I broke K10 2-pin 5 or 6 times - I tried to be very very very careful, keep them in case or special place in my bag - but nothing helps - 2 pin always broke sometime. Also I broke westone es5 2 or 3 times. sometimes I was able to remove broken pin from the earphone on my own or with help of my watch master, 2 times it was impossible and I sent it back to Noble across the ocean and waited 2-3 months. Westone I also sent to repair 2 times and second time I asked them replace 2-pin to mmcx which they use in their modern models (ES50 ect) and they did it. Also I sold my A18t because I also broke 2-pin and decided just to sell it. I would sell K10 as well - but eventually they got totally broken (again after 2-pin was broken first) and now they looks like this

    Noble asked huge money for repair - about 800 USD or so, it is too uch I think for earhones which is always got broken - so I am thinking repair them at some Russian masters at home who promised to install mmcx there)

    Could you have possibly been pulling the cables out incorrectly? I’ve cable-rolled on dozens of IEMs multiple times each, and I’ve never encountered any issues or damaged any pins; ever.

    I think inserting the cable is a quite strait-forward)

    Cable-rolling involves plugging and unplugging the cable numerous times per IEM. With both recessed and flush sockets, I’ve never encountered the issues you’re describing, which suggests a human error, rather than mechanical failure.
