The last pair I got frayed within one month.
Manuel Serpa
In general, this accessory cable is of much lower quality than the default Shure cables.
JoeGuy
So the buttons work (but it's a bit big of a control set).

This has to be one of the worst made cables I have ever seen for $50, the cable split at the point that where it goes around the ear after only 4 months of use. I am not shocked when that happens to a $10 cable but for $50 I would expect a little more. Its to bad it does not have the quality of the cable the headphones ship with.

Update, sending back for repair again 4 months later. Unless you like sending in for warranty three times a year I would go find other headphones as this is the only remote cable option I can find for these shure headphones.

This is a fully-functional cable & iPod/iPhone remote, and it's nice that Shure's in-ear monitors now let you replace the cables, but the quality of the cable is definitely a step down from the stock cable that I got with my 535s. I'm not sure what kind of cables the 315 and 425 IEMS come with.

It's too bad you have to chose between inline iPod controls and a comfortable, durable cable. Perhaps at some point Shure will make a cable with the inline iPod controls and the same reinforced design as the stock cable.

PROS:
- Inline controls and mic for iPhone & iPods. Enough said!

NEUTRAL:
- The 3.5mm plug on the end of this is neither straight nor L shaped -- it's 45 degrees. Not sure what to think of this; I've never seen a plug like it.
- Controls & mic unit is unusually large. It's not a big deal and it's not heavy, but they're considerably bigger than the Apple iPhone headset controls, for example.

CONS:
- Wire seems less durable than stock cables on the 535s (but definitely not pathetic)
- No stiffer section to go over the ear like on stock cables -- it's hard to get the IEMs to stay put with this cable
- Expensive. This cable alone costs more than many entry-level earbuds that include iPod controls.

YOU ARE AN INDUSTRY LEADER IN MICROPHONES and SOUND!!! And yet they failed miserably on this one! I'm sad and regret wasting the money on this product. Personal call after call of "What?" and "You sound like you are in a tunnel" got old; so I no longer use this cable.
Also a big "WHY???" question....The cable goes in front and attaches to ear IEM's that are inherently designed to go behind your back, The mic sits to low and picks up to much ambient noise with little to no filter. TIPS... Move the mic up (Bring up the mic to SHURE's standards) lengthen the right ear cord and allow the main cord to, as OEM designed, go behind the back with the right ear cord to drop or loop in front, to pick up speech. Maybe allow a clip to secure it in place. There is SO MUCH to be said and left to be desired that I would hope SHURE does SOMETHING about it. $500 for a great pair of IEM's (SE535) only to ruin the experience with a CRAP $50 cord. Take Not SHURE. Let me know if you want more information. I can go on... but you get the point.

Update:
I have replaced my original pair, because they fall apart. They new pair started falling apart in days. I tried Plasti Dip spray and it works great. Three light coats will make a nice protective layer that will make up for an inferior product. I used Red for right and black for the rest of the cord. If I have any issues I will post an update. Shure should do this but they don't care about customer service or they would make a better product for $50.

I have had these earphone cables for about a year now and need to order another set. I was hoping that Shure acknowledged the issues (several) and addressed them. I seem to have had a better experience than most users, so I will order a replacement set.

Pros:
Inline controls.
All the buttons work.
They fit my iPhone case.

Cons:
They are 75% lower quality than the stock cable.
They do not work over the ear nearly as well.
The cable started showing after a few months.
The mic cuts out on occasion.

These are not good for running, so I use some Ultimate Ears for that. I split time between earphones now, but my UE are 5+ years old, so they are showing their age. I really like the sound of my SE415 earphones, but Shure doesn't care about the quality of this cord. Their employees can't use these or the issues would have been corrected.

If you are buying these because you already have the earphones they are I get it, you have to, but they quality of the cable is a around the Skull Candy $20 headphones. They are an insult to $300 earphones.

The cable feels flimsy compared to the one the earphones came with (though, it stays wrapped around my ears better even though it's missing the stiff parts behind the ears). Not awesome, but no big deal.

The microphone was a problem. I got complaints about how I sounded almost every time I made a phone call: There was too much background noise (if I used it outside), or I was muffled, or the other party heard strange sounds (which it turns out were the cable or the microphone bumping into me).

The controls work fine -- no complaints there -- but I switched back to the stock cable because of the microphone quality.
