I wanted these so badly, then I started reading and thinking about the detachable cable. For me, the biggest thing about the detachable cable is being able to swap cables as the situation suits me. With the proprietary connector, cable swapping is mostly a no-go since they aren't compatible with the Sennheiser connectors.. and nobody is making custom Fostex cables. Considering all of that, the TR-X00 sticks you with the same 10ft cable with the option to unplug it when desired. Optionally, Fostex will sell you another 10ft cable (balanced) with an XLR connector.
I think I'll be better off finding a used pair of TH-X00's and modding in an Audeze or miniXLR connector; at least there's a large(ish) community of custom cables for those.
