Doesn't every headphone have microphonics ?

I put my old Koss PortaPro, not connected to a device, on my ears, and the first thing I noticed was the noise I heard when I fumbled with the cords. After that I tried my Sennheiser PX200 with the same result. Imho there wasn't much difference with my Etymotic ER-4P ! Of course the effect with the latter will be a little bit stronger because of the better isolation, but not that much.
Having sold my Stax lately I couldn't try them anymore, but it wouldn't surprise me if they had microphonics too.
So isn't it nothing more than a hype or something like an obsession ?
