I just sold my T5Ps and regret not trying them recabled as I hear it's a nice upgrade. But you will have to get them recabled by a pro as the cable isn't detachable, though I hear frequently that the investment is worth it!

Just received my Headphones back from James@ http://www.stefanaudioart.com
The custom cabling work that was done is absolutely beautiful.
The texture and feel is silky smooth and the look and design is stunning.
I wouldn't expect anything less from James as he has done all my cables in my recording studio.
 
The sound quality at first impressions is always a bit off because it is brand new cabling and needs around 250 hours to be burned in.
ive had maybe 4 hours burn in time so far and the sound field has opened up like a open back headphone, the imaging is much more precise and the fullness is similar to a set of near field monitors, perhaps a bit thicker. 
from first listen i felt the bass was bloomy and the highs were dulled excessively, but after only 4 hours from comparing back and forth with my akgs for HF impression, the T5ps are losing its bloomy-ness and the highs are coming in nicely. the mid range is perfect.
I look forward to burning these in for at least a solid 2 weeks before i will post final thoughts on the new cable change.
anyone wondering about the connector on the end it is an ebony wood connector.

SAA Endorphin Cable is made for home and or studio use preferably. The quality is extremely high end and should be treated with care like the T5p headphones

Would you recommend it for portable use? I would be putting it in a soft case in my backpack.

the material that the housing for the cable is made of can be damaged if you have a velcro material touch it. if you take good care of it it will be fine, just don't bunch it up. The sound quality the SAA Endorphine cable for the T5p is excellent. You will appreciate its SQ and stereo spread.
