Well, It should be doable, but does it stay on? I mean It doesn't have the locking mech I guess? And I would actually prefere a coiled cable, but with a bit longer traight part, so the coiled part could lay on the table, only.
Yeah it stays on fine, it's a nice tight fit. Yeah the cable has no locking mechanism. You could use the short cable to connect to a different, preferable coiled cable. I certainly don't like the cable that comes with the HP100s because it's heavier than the headphones themselves, meaning it pulls the left cup out of place when you're walking around.
So there's that against them as portable headphones, you'd definitely need to change the cable in my opinion. But they isolate pretty well and they're comfy and light. I wouldn't call them warm, though. They're on the slightly colder side of neutral, to my ears. Most people seem to like to warm them up with a warm amp (or I just use an EQ). If you want a warmish sounding neutral 'phone you could look at the PSB M4U 1.
