At 200 quid they could at least spring for a real leather case.
You say the cables don't feel durable? Figures. I don't care how light they feel or good they sound - if those wires aren't housed in an adamantium core then I'm not going anywhere near that price. At over 200 quid a pop I'd need them to last a hell of a lot longer than the usual 7 months before having to be hassled by the warranty nazis.
The Image X10 and Image X5 cable was just as thin but Riyad and Geoff's sets of each respectively are still going strong. I don't think the cables are likely to break; just that I'd like them to impart that feeling a little more readily - if that makes sense?
