This simple point, and regardless of the sound quality, make those cables completelly unpractical, and very prone, in case you can find a way to use them, to disconnection, unless locking, in which case, they will destroy the poor jack, as the stiffness will be simply ridiculous...
Cables are going the insanity route...IMO....
I agree with you and I disagree with you. Cables should certainly be practical and Virtual Dynamics' cables are a pain-in-the-butt to bend and manipulate, but they reveal more of the music and have greater dynamics than any other manufacturer's cable I've ever listened to. So it's a trade off.
