Please help with my SCL-4
You can prevent it by not using them. I'd get a new pair, sell it off and use those funds to buy something new. The older Shure earphones such as the E4 has the cable cracking issue which I guess was never fixed with the older earphones but has been fixed with the newer ones. I had them and treated them well and they cracked in less than a year.I will soon be receiving my fourth pair of SCL4 for warranty replacement. Since I can't sell these for enough money to buy something comparable, I will be stuck with them until they fail and I have to get pair #5.
What can I do to prevent the cable going to crap? I wear them over the ear. Does that contribute to the failure? I baby them when I am not using them. I roll them up very gently and store them in the clamshell.
I really need some ideas from someone who is familiar with why they fail, and what I can do to prolong them.
