I just compared the two....they are very close to the same in stiffness...like just hanging the cables across your finger. They bend mostly the same.
However, the TF10vi cable is thinner, and has a different casing. It's matte black, instead of shiny black. Because of these two changes, it 'feels' not as stiff to me. It's hard to describe, but it's 'better' than the stock cable. Doesn't feel 'low quality' quite the same way the shiny stock cable does.... The TF10vi cable also has a straight plug instead of the 90 degree plug.
Compared to my now gone Westone 3, it's just a little stiffer (which had almost the perfect cable IMO). Compared to my Denon cable (which is very thin, like fragile thin), it is definitely stiffer.
I've walked a good bit with the TF10vi cable, both inside my shirt (with player in my pocket) and outside (same way, player in pocket), and I don't notice microphonics.
