Interconnects, speaker wire, power cords. Ask the Cable Guys.

cut it so you save as much of the wire as possible.

If I was replacing the ends, I would cut off the current ends so the wire is not just hacked off. I would cut away the plug so I can get to the wire still soldered to the prongs inside. Thus saving as much of the cord as possible, And allowing a good look at the polarity and wire colors to each prong. A hack saw at it parallel to the wire is what I would do.

And agree verifying the correct polarity of BOTH ends is important.
