On every nice headphone I own, I have replaced the original cable or modded it in some way.
DT990 250 Pro - Coiled cable got really annoying due to awkward weight distribution // Solution Mogami 2534+Neutrik 1/4th inch
ATH-M50 - Cable too darn long for a portable headphone // installed 3.5mm jack (It came out ugly but works)
Sennheiser HD598 Cable too long and terminated in 1/4th inch so it was an absolute pain to bring to work // solution bought cable from ebay. (The original cable I believe has grounding issues as well. Makes bad sounds when connected to my Schiit Magni when it's connected to my computer, the new cable doesn't have this issue)
