      I had originally purchased the package with the Shure SE 425 earbuds along with this accessory. A week hadn't passed before I accidentally caught the cable on a doorknob as I was walking, and destoryed the plug, totally my fault, but within 5 minutes of doing that I ordered another one because I can't live without this. The functionality is great, they fit is more comfortable than the cord that comes with the earbuds (specifically the part of the cord that loops around your ears). The only down side is that having a conversation with someone, with earbuds in, isn't ideal, try talking with your fingers in your ears, you hear your voice throughout your head. This is no fault of the Shure earbuds, but just earbuds in general. Excellent for using siri, "shuffle playlist indie rock," etc., or short phone conversations. Being able to play/pause and volume is great.

      Update on my previous review

      After some moderate use, the cable's jacket stripped itself. Don't sleep with this cable attached. The original cable is still fine.

      Also, the mic quality is really, really poor.

            Comments about Shure CBL-M+-K-EFS In-Ear Headphone Accessory Cable with Mic and Remote:

            The CBL-M+-K-EFS accessory cable adds an iPhone-compatible microphone wire to the Shure SE215. It works well, though it isn't quite the same quality as the original wire that came with the earphones. Particularly, it doesn't have the memory wire, which would've been nice. I still don't understand why Shure doesn't provide a microphone with the original wire, like most manufacturers do, but makes you pay extra for the accessory cable. And once Shure is charging so much extra, shouldn't they at least use the same quality materials?

              Bought this to replace the cord without mic and remote, works perfectly with iPhone 5S, and sounds just as good as the cable that come with the Sure earphones. No cable noise, which I had worried about (noise of cable rubbing against clothing while walking).

                        I bought the SE215 In-Ear headphones specifically because of the detachable cord. The headphones are great, and this cord adds the iPhone-related functionality that's missing on the regular cord.

                          This cable upgrade is alright, not great for me.

                          They feel different than the stock cables. They do not include the bendable upper part that loops over your ears and holds in place, the cable is floppy. Which is fine but they're less comfortable on my particular ears than the stock cables were. Some people might like them better than the stock cables, it's down to the shape of your ears.

                            I use it with iPhone 5.
                            The product attaches easily to the ear buds themselves.
                            The mic is convenient to use.
                            Cable is longer than the one provided with iPhone, which makes it more user flexible.

                              Wanted this one for using my SE425 as a headset. This cable works, but it's thinner, softer, and much less durable than the original. This is disappointing, since it requires much care while using it.

                                I got this to go along with the SE215 earphones that I bought so that I would have the remote/microphone to make controlling my iPhone much easier when using these earphones. While the cable doesn't seem quite as durable and thick as the one that came with the SE215, it still feels like it is good quality. The remote part is also large and feels durable, which I am pleased with compared to the smaller remotes seen on many other earphones. The plug is also narrow enough to be used with the protective case on my iPhone (the hole for the headphone port is only ~7mm in diameter).

                                    The control feels solid. The mic works well. The cord is not as robust as the cord that comes with the in-ear headphone and so the headphone is less able to stay in the ear.

                                        The remote works very well for controlling the sound and tracks when running or on the road. Just like an iPhone headset, but enabling much better sound.

                                        Bought the Shure SE215 clear and then this cable only comes in black. But as I am used to having the functions provided with the cable, sucked it up and bought it, even if it interfered with the otherwise "cool" nature of the clear earphones.

                                                    The product is exactly what it claims to be. It's a great accessory to use the Shure headphones on an iphone. The mic quality is great and picks up little background noise. My one complaint is that the first cable I bought broke after about a year, right at the headphone connector. But, the cable is so useful, I immediately bought a second.

                                                      It's great to have the mike and remote on the cord, however, on the 315 earphones I own (which are detachable), there seems to be some issue at the point of connection between the cable and ear piece - there's some "in-and-out" on the sound, which is very frustrating. These 315's are a replacement Shure provided for my 310 earphones (which themeselves were replacements for an older set of 310's). Every pair of Shure earphones I've owned have had cable issues, in particular. I've been told the new headphones are made with cables made by a different company (since there have been lots of issues). They need to sort this out, since the sound in these earphones are terrific.
