Are these "Y" shaped or do they have that annoying 'one ear piece wire longer than the other' set up?

    Yes indeed they do have "Y" style cabling. I just bought these today (24 March 2010) and they are very good. I'm very pleased with them. And thats stock standard straight out of the box. I will try other tips later tonight. I'm sure they will sound even better once i find the correct tip for my ears, as the sound reproduction seems much nicer the more you shove therm into your ear canal.
    I am going to say they sound better and are much more comfy than my Bose and my Sennheiser MM50 in-ears so far. Hope this helps.

    See previous answer i left yesterday...

    Info lifted from DSE website here in Perth, Western Australia states... "Cable length: 1065 mm from audio jack to splitter; 330 mm to earpiece".
    From that, i am assuming that they do in fact have the "Y" cabling.
    I am heading out first thing in the morning to buy these so i can add to this post exactly what the cabling situation is. Stay tuned.
    I had been running Bose Tri-Port in-ears and more recently Sennheiser MM50 in-ears but are keen to try out these Apple in-ears. Mainly for the volume adjustment on my iPhone 3GS really. Interested to see how they fair against the Bose & Sennheiser.

  • They have the lovely "Y" design. I hate the other ones too.
