Really wanted to love this cable but my specific experience with JH Audio CIEMs has been poor.
1. Noise: The JH Audio CIEMs are sensitive and I experience some degree of white noise with most audio sources. Subjectively the white noise when no music is playing is four times as loud as when connected via wire to my 2014 Macbook Pro. Not ideal, but I could live with this.
2. Fit: This is what makes the cable unusable to me. Likely specific to my CIEMs and fit, these cables leave a small gap between the headphones and the cable. If oriented inward, there is also a screw that can dig into your head. I turned the cable around and resolved this issue but the gap remains. This gap rests against the side of my head and due to the sharp edge, is painful over time. The cable that I ordered is fabric wrapped and perhaps I should have anticipated this, but is larger than the standard audio cable. The thicker cable leads to a more awkward fit overall in comparison to the stock cable and a surprising amount of microphonics.
3. Audio quality: As expected the bluetooth module is not as good as a wired connection - this was expected.
All of these factors result in a cable that I can't use and since it was purchased from Massdrop, they cannot be returned. An expensive and unfortunate mistake on my part.
