Cables can influence the sound.. I was skeptical at first.. I owned the Cardas cable, & truthfully, the differences between the stock cables were subtle. They seemed overly hyped & 'snake oil' like..But I had my SA5000 recabled with the stock 650 cable, & to my surprise it did influence the sound on my SA5000.. It gave my headphones more of the 650's house sound.. I didn't like it, nor did I expect any change in sound, since a 'cable is just a cable.' Funny thing is, I gave this guy over seas an extra stock 650 cable.. He has the SA5000 as well.. Very crappy cable design for a 700.00 headphone. He got his recabled, & he PMed me about the change in the SQ.. Less clarity, more veiled, & warm.. These were the same issues I had with the SQ.. So we compared notes.
