Compared to the EL-8C (wood), is there any difference in sound, performance, or otherwise, besides looks and the cipher cable? is the cipher cable the same one that B&H sells for $59?

EL-8 Closed is supposedly same as EL-8 Titanium sonically.

This is the cipher cable, it works with EL-8 Closed

Are these like the Audeze earphones where if you can't use the cyper cable (eg. don't have Apple gear to plug into), then the sound quality will suffer?

Well it comes with a 3.5mm cable you can use instead, but the iphone's amp/dac isn't bypassed like with the included cypher cable. So unless you have your own it will not be as good.

Saw these used without the cipher cable for 299. Passed as I'm getting too many headphones.
