Having got hooked in to the buying of better and better headphones addiction about six or seven years ago
I finally decided that instead of going through incremental jumps up the quality headphone tree every six months
to a year (my pockets are an inhospitable environment at the best of times) I thought lets miss out on a bunch of middling
ones and buy stuff near the top of the tree, which means I own a pair of Grado SR325iS for listening at home and some
Ultimate Ears Triple Fi 10's for when I am out and about.
Many of the top end in ear monitor type of headphones that cost upwards of £150 have exchangable or replaceable cables
as this is one of the areas that headphones, cheap or expensive seem to fail. When I bought this cable this was the fourth
cable I had used with my Triple Fi's: two official Ultimate Ears cables and a Fiio RC-UE1 which is this cables predecessor.
The Ultimate Ears cables have memory wire that you can bend around the curve of the ear and you could use as a sort of
clamping device to ensure they stayed on your ear regardless of what you were doing, although this feature was useful both
of my cables eventually wore though at the point of this bending and broke the connection to the individual earphone,
the RC-UE1 had no memory wire but with time took to the bending over the ear. To my ear the RC-UE1 had a duller bass portrayal
than the UE cables but a more detailed mid-section, this seems to have been corrected in the RC-UE2 where although the mids
are still lovely and detailed the bass doesn't leave you wanting more. The look of the RC-UE2 is really quite different from the first,
coming in a sort of white acrylic and gray plastic at the headphone connecting point, and a neat and weighty 3.5mm jack.

I don't normally write reviews, but felt compelled to do one for this.
Cable is cutting out after less than 2 months (18th November to 24th January) . It's a design flaw. The braded cable, whilst nice looking isn't covered and it wears quickly and stops working.
Add to that, they're also uncomfortable and there is no wire to hold them over your earpiece so you have to wear them under ear, and no microphone - as many alternatives do.
Choose something else . This one isn't very good

Having had a few different cables for my Triple Fi's, including two original versions (one straight jack, one 'L' shaped) and a Chinese made, part copper part silver mix one for £60 (don't even bother BTW, they start off great but the soldering is done by a two year old child!!), I decided to give this cable a try. Microphonics to not bother me, as my phone is situated eight inches from my head on my commute so I do not have any trailing wire. If you are looking to use these whilst jogging or something then this could cause a problem, it can sound like overhead cables 'clanging' together otherwise!!
Sound wise the are fine, and I could be mistaken, but I have a feeling they do actually add a little to the bottom end, I noticed a definite additional subsonic tone which wasn't there on previous cables but is present on the music. Clarity is good and may even be better than the originals, but I am working from memory so this could be my imagination. So far so good, but only time will tell........

One piece of advise. If you are not getting a good fit behind your ears out of the box, like myself, then boil up the kettle and find yourself a mug with a large opening at the top and fill it as much as you can. Decide on the shape you need the cable to be behind your ears, then remove the headphone (just in case you drop it in boiling hot water. Not Good!!) and hold the wire in the hot water for around 20 seconds. Then remove the wire (give it a little shake to remove the excess) and hold it in the position you would like it. Hold it for another 20 seconds and even blow on it to cool it down, and hey presto, it should be shaped differently and should help. If not then repeat the process and try a different shape that might suit your ears.

I am hoping to get at least 6 - 12 months from this cable, so will update in the future should I have any issues.

Cable was sonically sound for the first eight weeks (despite the constant tangling of the painfully cheap cable braiding) before the left ear started to drop out periodically. Now the I only have sound in one ear. Same old rubbish. Avoid.

Much worse than the original cable, microphonics are the worst ever, you can hear every footstep, also sound is not as warm as with original cable. Too expensive for what it is.

I've owned super fi 5s since January 2008. The stock cable lasted about 18months before it split. The replacement from Amazon - no longer available - was more hardy and only recently demonstrated a problem in losing one channel.

This replacement is really very good: it looks great and most importantly sounds great - my Ultimate Ears sound just as they did out of the box!! The previous cable had obviously been degrading slowing for some time, to the extent that I was questioning whether I should replace the whole setup. I'm glad I didn't.

Some won't like the straight jack housing, which is larger and heaver than typical. I think this is supposed to present it has a more professional cable - either way, I quite like it. My personal preference is also for straight jacks rather than a L shape so this suits me too.

Other criticisms are around the twisted cable being rather 'microphonic'. This is true (and maybe will soften as the cable wears in), but I found it barely perceptible when actually listening to music - and I have my volume as low as possible.

If only these cables were available with in line Mic and iPhone controls...
