This is what I'm afraid of, is this a pretty widespread problem?

Would love to hear your impressions on this when you get them.  i'm about to pull the trigger on a pair of HD25s and wanted a cheap alternative to the steel cable offered.  checked out their website and their offereings look perfect for my price range.  which cable did you get?

Don't knock the steel cable until you've heard it. It's more than capable...!

ya thats my thoughts, i really want to get the adidas version, and i feel like replacing the blue cable is already one less 'specialty' thing i would be buying the adidas for.

I'll install it and upload pics and impressions as soon as they arrive in my box tomorrow. I have two 70-ohm and two 600-ohm pairs, so I'll A/B them against my stock-cable pair. I paid $94 for the premium cable. You won't need to send in your HD25s as Brian will build/test the cable using his personal HD25s. This is my first "recable".

 

Here's a pic of my cable on Brian's HD25s:

As you can see the sheath looks to be fairly soft as the coil/bend implies. Naked above split. Love the looks.

IMO the pleathers are crap and the velour are far better in terms of comfort, and only lose a little in isolation. You may want to switch to the velour and they don't sell those in Adidas blue.
