Is it usual or unusual for speaker cables to have screening against RF/EMF?

I've always thought it was a good idea to screen speaker cables but I've never experimented with them. Do they improve sound quality?
I think they should because of the amount of stuff zooming through our air waves.

Screening a cable increases its capacitance - not a problem over a metre or so for interconnects but bad news for speaker cables.

Especially if you like treble…
