Well, even as a big believer in premium cables, I agree. I like the stock cable a lot as having a nice balance of clarity and ease, and I could easily be happy with it.
In fact, it's one of the best stock-cable situations around. And I didn't use it for more than a month or so, but I would speculate that it would break in and sound even better
over time, as most cables do IME.
But I did settle on my Balanced Moon Silver Dragon/Furutech-connectors as a great cable for the HE500s.
