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.
I never do cable rolling. I change cables only when they got broken) but with mmcx - campfire ect - I do not have any needs to change cables at all)

So your broken pins wasnt due to cable change.....hmm that means you are not keeping your iem protected or handling them well. I would imagine it takes quite some strength and force to break the pins when connected to your IEMs.

you just need to handle your iem (connected to cable) more delicately i guess.......and dont follow John's way :darthsmile:

It really doesn’t matter what you do. Ahh........well?

Statistics show that proven outcomes can follow a bell curve with the majority having good results. With this probability there will always be a 10% which have better quality control and a different 10% which have an incursion of failure. But due to your ratio of issues here, I would guess it’s the way you handle your IEMs. We all have times when stuff breaks, though you would be considered extreme, I think?

I thought I was bad when it comes to breaking mine. :wink: You guys should thank me, I inspired the round carrying case, something I am on the fence of being proud about.

Don't scare me like that lol. I'm constantly refreshing tracking to keep an eye on the package I'm getting today from you and that's my worst nightmare.

My K10s were so well packaged, they would have easily survived that treatment.

So the Audio Technica ATH-L5000 is out and shipping. I spent all day Tuesday with them. My Katanas have more low end than they do.

Pretty awesome eh? You have to listen to Bang Bang by Jesse J if you can, stuff bounces around the right ear that's pretty crazy. You really hear the drums in that track.

@FullCircle do you know when distributors will start getting the Khan (for display/auditioning)? Just got news that the ier-z1r is launching next week, so Khan is the only iem I’m waiting on before making a decision! (I guess Solaris too... but I do have some concerns about that one)
