Honestly, I'd say that you just need to try it and see for yourself. The debate on the difference that cables make is already heated enough, and with a new can like the k701, very few recabled units are floating around, so you might just have to try it out for yourself if you want a quick answer.
I'm wondering if Larry at headphile would be able to install a jack from a pair of sennheiser hd580/600/650 making it possible to use one of the many cables available for those headphones on you K701. I probably wouldn't be expensive at all to do. Although the jacks aren't available from the sennheiser webpage they still might be available upone special request or it may even be possible to easily fabricate them since thier construction is very simple. I bet once alot of people have these headphones then the demand could be enough to be profitable.

Absolutely . . . except that in many cases it is worth THIS much, and that is sufficient to warrant recabling, at least as long as the rest of your system is of THAT CERTAIN quality, and your finances are such that it is worth SUCH an investment.
