Replacing the stock cable definitely helps to reveal the potential of this can.

I respectively disagree. Aftermarket cables tend to have little to no benefit, let alone effect, on the sound quality of a headphone.

Actually, I beg to differ, replacing the straight steel cable on my HD25-1 ii's, I noticed significantly less static in a high static environment using the coiled cable, which has much thicker shielding.

HD25 has an iron cable to begin with. I have mine replaced with an ADL cable that works fantastically. I agree with you that generally only a few headphones start out with quality cable that can release full potential. But how much to throw into this should be controlled.

Sounds like you received a defective cable. I have never in my life heard of an audiophile can that was bottlenecked by a cable. As an example, the difference between a $100 LOD and a $10 LOD are so microscopic, I think you'd have to be a bit of a walnut to buy anything more than just a standard, quality cable for a fair price.

In this case, aftermarket cables might be worse. The original cables as other AKG cables are very good against noise from objects touching the cable. I bought an aftermarket cabel that has good audio-values, but is a mess if you tend to move your head a bit and the cable touched my shirt or back. I stopped using it after 5 minutes.
