Interestingly the stock cables have pretty good synergy with the Noble IEMs. I’m actually thinking of having my stock cable re-terminated to 4.4mm? I have purchased aftermarket copper cables which didn’t improve the sound in the end.
I am looking primarily around usability improvements than around sonic changes.

I would probably lay in the snow naked if it got me better sound quality?

Just put a bunch of stickers on the stock cable, and dip the 3.5mm in palladium while chanting "humana humana humana", improve the audio quality by 10 fold guaranteed!

Folks, I realize it is a sensitive topic, but I am looking to change the stock cable on my Katana. The reason would be to primarily enhance the comfort. The memory wire with my glasses just isn't working out for me. I would prefer something without any memory effect. (For example, the Westone cables are very comfortable for me).

Secondarily, and optionally, if the cable will make the sound a bit warmer, I would like that as well.

Any thoughts and recommendations would be most appreciated.

Thanks

I use cables made by Ted Allen, Headphone Lounge Cables. http://www.head-fi.org/u/140678/teds-headfood. Excellent service, high quality materials, and fast delivery.

Spending hundreds on cables does not get my vote. It also looks pretty thick and heavy. Unless the Audeze is very cheap, I would go with the Linium Bax.

A face plate made from mamoth ivory is possible

I have a pool cue with ivory in it, kinda stuck with it now since we have a ban on buying and selling things with ivory now in our state.

I don't really find the topic sensitive, it just comes down to being a believer or not, the cable debate will never end. As long as its discussed like adults, never any harm in bringing it up.
