Hey all -

I just picked up some SE425's, but I had some question about replacement cables.

Since I'm planning on driving these mostly from my iPhone, I was looking for cables with a mic / volume control (though my pebble can take care of the volume) but the official cable looks like it's way overpriced for what you get. It looks flimsy as ****, tbh.

So I was wondering if there were any better replacement cables with a mic that you all recommend / where to get them?

Thanks!

You can search for the product title below on Amazon, but I can't say anything in the quality, reviews for it only average to 3 stars. It's $14

Another cheap one for $16 :

Honestly have still been looking.  I may grab the UE900 cable from logitech, but I'm also looking at (on kickstarter) trinity audio's new headphones.  I'm not looking to get the actual IEMs, but they're making a 'bluetooth lanyard' with mic / remote that has the same connectors as the SE425, and I'm trying to see if I can JUST pledge for that, and use it to make my headphones bluetooth (and have a mic) when I want to

Thanks for the reply.
 
I ended up ordering a couple of cables with Mic from eBay. One by Earmax (about $25). Here:
http://www.ebay.com/itm/EarMax-For-Shure-SE-215-215-315-535-upgrade-audio-cable-with-remote-control-mic-/252045553008?hash=item3aaf15ed70
 
and one generic (about $14). Here:

Their both been shipped from China and I hope the mic is decent. Their both suppose to work with most Android devices. One even had a switch on the back to switch between Android and iOS controls. 
 
I would love a Bluetooth option. I have actually been looking at the Sony MUC-M1BT1, but is has a few drawbacks. First is usually priced at over $200, has two kinda big attachments (one on each side) tio house the battery and Bluetooth as well as single control button. Worst of all it doesn't include a Mic.
 
 That Trinity Audio BT cable look interesting. Now if i can figure out how to order one or how much it cost. But it seems you can only buy it by backing one of the IEMs. I might do that the IEM with three cables (long, short braided and optional Bluetooth cable) for about $120 is better than $200+ for Sony BT MMCX cable with no mic. There isn't much time left and they are a little short of funding, So I might just pledge and do my part in getting these in production.

That Trinity Audio kickstarter page dosen't mention anything about a mic with the BT cable. So I wonder.... Not nearly as useful if's that's the case.
 
Still, I supported the campaign, though all a really want are the cables (short, long and Bluetooth).
 
UPDATE:
 
I was answered in the comments and their is a mic. Also they just surpassed their funding goals with 10 days to spare.

Having gotten both cables in I can say they both get the job done. I like the EarMax better, it seems high quality and the mic works really well. The controls work with my Galaxy Note 4 excellently. The cable is light and flexible and I find the memory wire that goes around the ear to be better than the stock Shure cable. It a bit shorter than the long Shure cable, but long enough to keep my device in my pocket without issue. I'll try to post pics if anyone is interested.
 
I also got in on the Trinity Audio Kickstarter campaign and look forward to seeing how that turns out.
