The good news is this cable is still way better than the other "upgrade" cables you can find on eBay; I wore through several versions of those quite quickly. Note I do not abuse the earphones at all but they do get used on a daily basis so normal wear and tear is to be expected, I really didn't expect to have this many problems with them.
The bad news is this cable will fail again for the same reasons in the same amount of time because of several small design flaws from Shure. 1) while I don't mind it, others might be bothered by the rapid oxidation (green turning) of the cable within a couple months. 2) the sliding rubber cinch still seems to slowly creep loose still, requiring me to reach behind my head and pull it back up snug every 10 or so minutes. I get the feeling that I might utilize this feature more and to a tighter degree than most but it's still worth noting. 3) YES the same random music cut outs when one of the connectors is ever so slightly dirty is still a huge problem. Im willing to deal with it because I love the detachable feature but wish they had designed the connector to provide a better seal against sweat.
All in all I'd definitely recommend this to anyone looking for a replacement Shure cable, don't waste your time with the eBay junk. Either way be ready to buy another one in a year or so, maybe by that point they'll have made them as indestructible as the earphones themselves.
However, I'm prompted to write a review to highlight that there was a recent (fairly minor) redesign that makes a big difference for me. It used to be that this cable wouldn't fit my iPhone case, so I had to keep buying short little adapter-things to connect the earphone cable to my phone. Those adapters would all break from use within a couple months (I tried about half a dozen different ones), which was frustrating. In my most recent purchase of this cable, though, Shure has removed some of the bulky plastic near the plug so that it has a thinner profile and can fit in my iPhone case! You can see the old and new plugs side-by-side in the picture. No more adapters for me! I suppose there's a chance they've tweaked the design in other ways, too, and these new ones will also last longer, but my hopes aren't high.
I know enough about plastics engineering to know it isn't strictly thickness that determines durability. I do like the greater flexibility of the replacement cable. It feels "more natural" in hand and is easier to untangle. I also know that any cable that is subjected to routine stress is going to routinely fail at some point. So, I got the new one yesterday. The clock starts. I'll come back in two years and eight months or at first sign of failure to let you know if this replacement is equal to, less than or superior to the part it replaced.
Side note: While I was waiting for my cable replacement, I did my nightly walks with a pair of cheapie open-air Sennheisers. While I liked the greater awareness of my urban environment that the open cans give you, I really missed the clarity and depth of my 425s. So when I go out with the Shures, it's with the volume low and pretending that I'm hearing impaired. Because you are hearing impaired with a pair of noise-suppressing buds that knock at least 50% of the ambient volume out of your awareness. Stay frosty and always groove safely.
