You can coil the cables, if you do it properly- not haphazerdly like most people do by just spinning it around their arms. If you do it neatly and give your wrist a turn at the top, it keeps the wires straight and neat (it accomplishes the same thing as folding them, I just find it easier). This is how the major studio's and audio production companies around me do it, and its never done harm for any of us.
