Shure SE215 replacement cables?

Can anyone recommend me another earphone cable for the Shure SE215 that is more flexible, less heavy and also does not make the soundquality lousier?

I have been using the stock cable for a while now but i really don't like it as it is too heavy and stiff.

Saw this cable on ebay, New Version Furutech Shure upgrade cable SE535 SE425 SE315 SE215 in Black | eBay, is this okay?

My budget is below $50. Thanks in advance.

The cable from ebay is not bad. I am using his TF10 cables.

Hmmm, so is the ebay cable stiff? Anyone can verify this? Or any other cables to recommend.

It's a bit stiffer than westone es cables but softer than the default tf10 cables.

So in terms of stiffness, westone es(least stiff)> ebay cable> tf10 cable> shure cable(most stiff)?

How many cores does you ebay-cable have?

I am not sure about the stiffness of the shure cables.

I am currently using this, which is also a 2 core cable like the ones you are intending to buy.

If its a solid core, it should be really stiff.
I'm using a solid core cable and its really hard to wind and store.

I dont see the ebay seller mentioning that the cable is solid core.. Core wires = solid core?

Hmmm, so any other cables to recommend?
