Please forgive me as I consider myself more of a Mid-Fi guy and not so much an Audiophile. I just purchased some replacement headphone cables and in the written instructions that came with them they make statements like, "With all cables, the longer you play them and the less you move them the better they sound. All cables need a break-in and warm-up period.". I'm somewhat new to this hobby but I've worked in the electrical field for a long time and thought that I had a general if not basic understanding of things electrical. This I do not understand. Please, would someone educate me on what physical properties of a cable change to affect sound. Thanks.
