Quotes from the Reviews - What People Say about:

Cable

Cable:
"These cables are going to fail for one reason or another: mine get used everyday in the gym and are subject to sweat."
_
"I needed to get a replacement because the original cord the earphones came with were unfortunately somehow mangled."
_
"LOVE that Shure allows you to replace broken cables with ease."
_
"I bought this cable for my earphone in March 2015 and it started to sound weird in September 2015."
_
"i needed to replace my recently damaged black SE215 earphone cable."
_
"This is a great replacement cable for my Shure se425's, whose cable's memory wire had broken."
_
"Love the earbuds, but the cord always breaks in 6 months."
_
"I love how these cables look, especially the clear."
_
"It would be nice if the design was better, but if you have the 215s, 315s or 415s, you will have to replace this cable at some point."
_
"I'd recommend adding a clip to the cables yourself, these tend to want to fly off of you because of the heavier cabling."
_
"I must say, I love that the cord is detachable because my Shure SE215 earphones were a small investment for me (and have been worth every penny) and being able to buy a replacement cord for a very reasonable price is such an easier decision to make instead of buying a completely new set of quality earphones!"

Design

Design:
"I never liked this cable design, and this is just a replacement for a flaky cable -- it's the same, I think."
_
"Terrible design, failure in the same place."
_
"It would be nice if the design was better, but if you have the 215s, 315s or 415s, you will have to replace this cable at some point."
_
"But this replacement has a step design that can fit my phone with a hard case perfectly."
_
"Great design!"
_
"I believe this is a newer design than the original clear cable that came with my 2yr old SE215s."
_
"It is kind of a poor design but I love the headphones."

_
"I bought this cable for my earphone in March 2015 and it started to sound weird in September 2015."
_
"i needed to replace my recently damaged black SE215 earphone cable."
_
"I can't tell you how long it took to arrive at a system for easily slipping these earphones on and off, but I must say when the cable failed last time, it failed at the plug, not at the ear stress points and it failed beyond the 2 year warranty (2 years, 8 mos.)"
_
"I am pretty surprised that it did not last as the one I first purchased the earphone.......I cannot hear the right earphone at some angle which is pretty annoying."
_
"The 3.5mm plug that came with my earphone was very big, and hard to fit in with my phone with a case."
_
"I must say, I love that the cord is detachable because my Shure SE215 earphones were a small investment for me (and have been worth every penny) and being able to buy a replacement cord for a very reasonable price is such an easier decision to make instead of buying a completely new set of quality earphones!"
_
"Works great, but is considerably thinner than the one that comes with the earphones, but works perfectly."
_
"great replacement for se215 earphones."
_
"I can't tell you how long it took to arrive at a system for easily slipping these earphones on and off, but I must say when the cable failed last time, it failed at the plug, not at the ear stress points and it failed beyond the 2 year warranty (2 years, 8 mos.)"

Fit:
"I keep buying replacements not because they're fantastic but because I know they'll fit and the price (though expensive) is relatively small compared to the cost of the earphones."
_
"The 3.5mm plug that came with my earphone was very big, and hard to fit in with my phone with a case."
_
"I've had my SE425's for about a year and a half now and the wire that molds to fit the contours of your ears is COMPLETELY broken."
_
"Fit and worked great."
_
"The shipping was fast, the product was as described, the attachments fit and work perfectly! "

Plug

Plug:
"With this cable, not only did I get the same great quality, but I was also able to plug it into my phone, thanks to a small protruding section attached to the 3.5mm plug."
_
"I can't tell you how long it took to arrive at a system for easily slipping these earphones on and off, but I must say when the cable failed last time, it failed at the plug, not at the ear stress points and it failed beyond the 2 year warranty (2 years, 8 mos.)"
_
"The 3.5mm plug that came with my earphone was very big, and hard to fit in with my phone with a case."
_
"Either the earpiece connection oxydizes or the 3.5mm plug fails."
_
"The quality of the cable is horrible because the connection will go out if you touch the end of the cable where it plugs into the device."
_
"Unfortunately, I bent the plug and had to replace the cable (love the replaceable cable)."
_
"However, I have been operating for the last year or so with the replacement cable (CBL-M-K Music Phone Cable) instead, which is much more flexible (to the point of not having any memory wire at all) and music player phone case compatible plug."
_
"The new cables plug right in making an easy fix."
_
"But for the love of sound, why isn't this plug case-friendly?"
_
"Unfortunately, I bent the plug and had to replace the cable (love the replaceable cable)."
_
"so when my plug got bent and broke I was able to replace the cable for a modent cost."

Price

Price:
"I keep buying replacements not because they're fantastic but because I know they'll fit and the price (though expensive) is relatively small compared to the cost of the earphones."
_
"30 bucks (translation: great earplug delivers high end sound and the weakest link is now inexpensive to replace)."
_
"I've seen a couple of complaints about the price, but $30 for a cable that'll last me another 4+ years is quite alright with me."
_
"Great price and product! "
_
"Just like the original on my e425's....great price, too"
_
"I must say, I love that the cord is detachable because my Shure SE215 earphones were a small investment for me (and have been worth every penny) and being able to buy a replacement cord for a very reasonable price is such an easier decision to make instead of buying a completely new set of quality earphones!"
_
"I wasted some money on imitations before buying the real thing, these are great and, while a bit pricey, much cheaper than having to buy a whole new set of headphones."
_
"Great service and good prices."

Sound

Sound:
"I bought this cable for my earphone in March 2015 and it started to sound weird in September 2015."
_
"My experience is similar to other reviewers in that they've all broken after a year or so of usehe sound starts cutting out in one or more years, due to wear (or something) around the plug and or in the over-the-ear sections."
_
"30 bucks (translation: great earplug delivers high end sound and the weakest link is now inexpensive to replace)."
_
"I was fairly disappointed when the right cable started causing the sound to cut out about a month or two ago, but I decided to look on Amazon and see if I could find a knock-off replacement cable."
_
"And this these replacement cable seems to make the sound even better (I believe that, but I wasn't happy with the cable that came with the unit...then I wrenched them on accident)."
_
"30 bucks (translation: great earplug delivers high end sound and the weakest link is now inexpensive to replace)."
_
"Also, while you may need to clean the connectors to prevent sound cutting out, it is very easy to manage with Shure cables."
_
"I have been a huge fan of Shure products for many years - I love the passive noise blocking and the ultra clear and precise sound that even the cheaper Shure products produce."
_
"You don't lose any sound quality which is fantastic"
_
"They're great looking, not very obvious and they sound beyond good."
