Depends on what you like. For now I'm using my Oyaide cable. Nice balanced sound but it's a bit clearer and more defined versus the stock cable. The Copper Thor cable I have has a big bass and more high end but lacks mids for me.

I'm on fonebone cadence for my 900s. Sub bass is much tighter and has both better texture and quantity. Mids are more pronounced. With wider soundstage and cleaner background removing the veil on the stock cable giving better clarity.

I use the Null Audio Vitesse Black Cable with my UE900. I also have FiiO RC cable but don't like the silver cable for they synthetic sound signature. What I can say about Vitesse cable it's that sound is more clear, soundstage is wide, instrument separation is fantastic and sound signature overall is more warmer with little midbass boost. Soundstage is very close to Sony XBA-H3 (but still not as deep), when with stock cable soundstage is flat, 2D and cheap.
Overall I like UE900 + Aftermarket cable more than H3. And one thing I want to notice that changes between cables is more noticeable with good sound source, for example, it's very hard to hear the sound differences on iPhone 4S/5S rather than on FiiO X5.

I'm writing this comment with a ue900 with me. I've got this for 130 pounds and to be honest, it was a good buy for 130 pounds. The ue900 is truly impressive, very clean and soundstage is good, but i noticed that there is a bit echo in the mid range, vocal particularly. There is a lack of richness in the vocal, which makes the mid sometimes tasteless. Treble is nice, never sibilance yet very detailed and sparkle, while the bass is pretty decent, even though it doesnt have much punch to it and a bit linear. The overall sound signature is a bit V-shaped, which is enjoyable for most music, but for vocal lovers or basshead i can see that it can be not so satisfying. On some tracks, i can hear it a bit unnatural, especially when you listen to the finger snapping. Overall, for 130 pounds, yes it is very nice, but for 360 pounds? It certainly is over priced, both sound and the lame build quality.

Try out some tips. For me my RE400 tips I got worked well to improve the mids considerably. The mids were a mess before that with everything else

Thanks for all the recommendations. Where can i order those cables? Any particular site that ships internationally?
