Well, I guess using UE10-Pros with a $600 iPhone makes more sense than with a $200 iPodI just cut the cable on my UE10-Pros. I do want to see them release a cable for the iPhone and think it would be super cool if they had a mic/button built into it so I can use my earpieces to talk on the phone.
Could you please take some pics? I was hoping to do this as well with my UE's, but was curious how it will look/how much to shave off.Out of desperation, I decided to go for it so I took a sharp knife and just slowly and carefully started to shave away the plastic at the bottom of the plug. It was a lot easier than I expected and just the 2mm removal of the fat soft plastic base was enough to allow for a near perfect fit into the iPhone! The plug does not even look altered.
If you were at all hesitant, go for it! It is a great no cost solution to a frustrating problem.
That is great news. I hope it has a button like the stock Apple headphones.I contacted the customer service of UE about making a cable design for Iphone and this was their reply. (I deleted the name of the representative for security purposes). Hope This helps.
"We are in fact designing a new cable specifically for the iphone for the custom products and it will have the correct recessed plug and a built in mic.
This should be available in December.

I was emailed by someone at Ultimate Ears and he said that they are coming out with an iPhone cable that will have the little squeeze box speaker built in just like Apple's cord, but it will be compatible with the Ultimate ears and you can unplug it. He said the target date is sometime in December '07.The cable obviously doesnt fit well and the belkin converter is just too big and long. The ultimate ears are detachable from the actual cord. Does anyone know if ultimate ears started selling compatible cords for the iphone?
