The root problem here is too many headphone designs have the cable entry pointing straight down, instead of angled slightly forward. You'd think they'd have learnt that point over all these years.
 
 
 

 
I love how HiFiMan managed to remember to angle the sockets.. but still ship the awful stiff, microphonic stock cables. Passeth all understanding..
 
Oh, and the Viper for my HD650 seems solid and good. It looks and feels great, very sturdy and smart. Comfortable to use and no issues with microphonics. If turn-around was quicker, I'd probably have ended up with a few more like it- maybe it's a conspiracy to save us money
