Well, the idea behind of having the detachable cable is in case the cord stops functioning, you can simply replace it. This happened to my K550. I personally prefer having the option to use any cable I want, and if something like that were to happen to my headphones, I could simply buy a new cable, not the whole pair of headphones.
