In this case, it's not the wire that is the problem, it's your connections. 1/4" connections will always go bad on you on a day you absolutely need it, so I would recommend making your own and using better connectors. For my gig, my trusty technicians have modified the connection for my Shure SE315 in ear monitors to mini-XLR. Once put together, they lock together, but are less than half the size of a regular-sized XLR connector. I suggest learning how to wire this up and just changing out your connectors.
