Out of curiosity, what makes you think a cable will improve bass frequency response? You send the bass signal to the driver all the time. The driver simply doesn't produce it. A cable is not going to make the HD598 bassy. Nothing will make the HD598 bassy except equalization, and even then, it won't be bassy, it will just be a little warmer. I think you're just coming to the reality that you want more bass and you have a headphone that isn't capable of that.
Before you waste money on a cable, which will do nothing for bass, I would suggest you simply start looking into what your next headphone is going to be.
(If you actually want to add more bass to the HD598, things like a Digizoid ZO2 acting as a pre-amp in your circuit would be a start, not a cable)
