Not an expert, but have replaced my HD558s 1/4" plug cable with the Made in China 1/4" plug cable, sounds fine to me.
If you look at the size of the wires used with the HD558s, the 1/8" plug has more then enough surface for the connection.
I believe the 1/4" plug is preferred for professional use because it's a tougher plug, not for any "audio quality" reason.
