Which one sound more natural in American English?

(1) My headphones cable is all tangled.
(2) My headphones cable is all twisted.

Is there any difference between 'em?

    Tangled suggests more a serious situation to me.
    Twisted might be just looped around but tangled takes us into probably knotted and hard to undo.

    But it’s not a major difference. Either would work for your everyday headphone muddle.
