The stock cable for my akg k271s finally stopped working on me and I was thinking that as long as I had to buy a new cable I should probably buy the best value I can get. The cables I am looking at are:

 

Ebay gold cable (http://cgi.ebay.com/Gold-1-8-AKG-Headphone-Cable-K271s-K141s-K171s-K240s-/200567833951?pt=LH_DefaultDomain_0&hash=item2eb2c6455f) ~ $26 w/ shipping

Ebay silver cable (http://cgi.ebay.com/AKG-Headphone-Silver-Cable-K271s-K141s-K171s-K240s-/260746551285?pt=Other_MP3_Player_Accessories&hash=item3cb5b49ff5) ~ $38 w/ shipping

Stock cable ~ $40 w/ shipping

Headphile cable Silver/Copper (http://www.headphile.com/page9.html) ~ $85/115

Stefan Audio Art E-Series (http://stefanaudioart.com/ReplacementCableForAKGK271Headphones.html) ~ $200 w/o shipping

 

I'm not inclined to buy the $200 cable, but I might go for the headphile one if it was worth it. I know pretty much nothing about cables so I'm a little at a loss on how to compare all of these.
