^ I have a feeling that guy used a little bit more than just audiophile cables.
If you upgrade your headphones cables, do you also need to upgrade the rest of your cables (cables connecting PC, DAC, amp, etc.), or is it mostly the headphone cables that make the biggest difference?
Of course you need to have everything upgraded. Remember the saying that your audio system is only as good as its weakest link? Choosing only to upgrade headphone cables while neglecting to upgrade the remaining cables in other equipment is akin to changing one tyre on a car when all four are bald. Sometimes it may be difficult to upgrade the internal cables of say a dac or amp, so odds are that you're better off getting new gear that comes equipped with the upgrade cable of your choice.
Another aspect that is often overlooked is the power cord. Keep in mind that it is pointless if your system is fed dirty AC power. Again using a car analogy, it is no different from using cheap RON95 fuel with a high end super car when much better racing fuel is available. I strongly recommend the $6000 power cord from Audioquest. While it is expensive, it's able to bring out the absolute best in your set up.
