This is actually true for almost all digital cables. This image explains why.
The same is true for DVI and fiber optic cables. The only exception I think I would make is for Ethernet cables. The difference between the $2 for 14ft and $5 for 14ft is probably worth it. So I am not saying spend a lot, but a little more on well made network cable can save you some trouble. Amazon Basics seem to work great and are a great price.
