Received the replacement cable from eBay last week and have been testing it since it arrived. Must say this one is the best replacement cable since the original from UE. Sound is transparent and it seems decently durable. The previous cable allowed me to lose one of the earphone drivers just a day or so before this new one showed up. Fortunately I backtracked and found that very important missing component. The new cable is a better fit with the drivers so I’m more optimistic that it will be a better long term replacement. Well made and everything works so far.
