But I worry about the cable; I have a pair of JVC marshmallows and while the memory foam makes my ears itch terribly, I adore the cable on those; nice and thick and supple and not prone to tangling.
Quite some time ago there were threads about replacing the eartips on the Marshmallows. Does anybody know if the tips are easily replacable on the modern version?
If so, this might be a reasonable approach. I believe that my old Marshmallows (that I haven't used in several years) were much more comfortable after changing the tips.
