Worst thing happened to me this morning...  usually on the subway with my earphones plugged in, but today since I was with a friend I did not need any music so I had them clipped to my collar.  As I got out of the train, the earphones dropped to the floor and my foot stepped over them pulling the wire out of the transducers in one fluid motion.  I am definitely getting them repaired from Etymotic, but I would like to know if it's possible to get someone to reattach the wires to the transducer piece so I can keep my old classic red/blue instead of the lame all black?

Well I originally wanted to pick up a third pair, the newer black ones so I sent my damaged pair in for repair.  They replaced the cable and was kind enough to return the old earphone back!  I am unsure if it is possible or not to reattach, but from the looks of the wires themselves it is.  Will know for sure once I get some time to open up the other end.
