Actually, I think the mini XLR might protrude a bit too far down and bump your shoulders, which could be a problem. The SMC coax connectors are actually not that bad. I've sort of learned to deal with them and just ordered 7 pair of them from China for $21.00.
If you want a softer HifiMAN cable, you'll have to seek out some options that use a soft nylon paracord. The cable, twisted 4-conductor Canare star quad, is fed into the sleeve and the other components are then soldered on, and the nylon ends are carefully placed into the connectors and under the shrink-tube so it doesn't fray.
Very nice looking cable Wayne!!
