Eeeeeh. Going back to the cables thing, I don't really believe it. But then I got this used Goldring DR150 and it came with a free custom cable. I might be swayed but the treble in the original cable is harsh compared to the custom cable. But then again, the original is like 2 meters plus while the custom one is more like a 1.3 meters.
Cables are ok I guess, just don't spend more than 1/4 of the headphone price on cables. Also don't buy if you can't detect the difference. A lot of people don't believe in cables, and a lot of people do believe in cables. Just get what you think you want and get on with it.
