Welcome to Headphone Heights, the place for all your ear bud discussion

Yes but...

in order to squeeze out that last 10%, better headphones cables do make a difference. Unfortunately, Raal is using different pinouts for their connectors than customary, not to mention using female XLR connectors at cable-end instead of male.
This makes it very difficult to use expensive aftermarket headphone cables you already own with Raal.

I had to unsolder the wire from the ring of TRS connector and make/buy 4-pin female XLR to female XLR adapter(different pinout) to use my OCC pure silver litz headphone cable (Hifiman standard) with Raal, but it sure brought significant SQ improvements over stock cables.
