I'm getting a custom cable for my Alphas, but strictly for ergonomics - less stiff, and with a mini XLR termination and two adapters, mini XLR to 1/4" stereo, and mini XLR to 4 pin XLR for balanced use. The stock cable is good, but a bit stiff, and a full size XLR to 1/4" is a bit bulky. Plus I wanted something new and cool looking… Do I expect to hear a difference? No - the stock cable is good. Most studios use the same cabling for most of the recording mics.
