Digital stalking made easy.

Here you can find most of my what I’m doing around the Web. All of my series of tubes point here—at least the tubes with feeds.

Ultimate ears cable

Headphone Cable Breaks

To make the cable have the ability to wrap over the top of your ear, Ultimate Ears placed a metal wire in the cable. After about four months the plastic coating becomes brittle and the wire breaks through. I've been through about five cables. (Luckly the headphone cable is easily replaced.) After the last cable broke I switched to the Apple in-ear w/ mic and remote and haven't had any issues with the cables, but the sound isolation isn't as good.

If the cable wasn't crap I'd rate these headphones about a 7.5. The sound quality is good; could use a little more bass. Also the sound isolation is really good.
