Tangle free, my ass

This "tangle free" cable isn't.

Tangle? Free!

I find ribbon cables you find on Stax, Sata and (heaven forbid) some beats canalphones tangle the least. My etymotics are perma-tangled, but they don't seem to mind.

I wonder why it's not a popular choice.

My Alessandro MS-1 cables don't tangle.

They're so phat!

It's actually the pair of Branwavz B2 that I've been playing with the past week or two.

I love the black and white cable (best of both words), the fit and comfort are great and they sound fantastic too.

If anyone is holding off buying a sub-$200 canal we will have stock soon :)

Huh. I was 100% sure that this thread would be about shampoo.

Out of all my audio gear I have only one that was advertised as having a tangle-free cable. Incidentally it's the one that got tangled the most, though I rarely mess up my cables.

My HD25s cables are pretty tangle free, but they're stupid easy too hook onto edges for whatever reason.

Which makes me really worry about my J3's jack. :(

As I said in the other thread, I'm finding the M3 cable, while not tangle free, a metric fuckton less tangly than any other canals I've had.

Sennheiser CX 300-II canal phones. Most tangle prone 'phones I've ever owned. Soon to be replaced with a pair of UE700's, which will most likely also be prone to tangling.
