First off, I must note that I've never heard the B1 nor the Bassline, BUT... I have a B2, and I always thought it is an average sub until I replaced its stock power cord and cable with the custom-made pieces. The bass started to sound just as it should, tight and defined, and the integration with my system became very easy. So, in my case the difference was obvious.

I have a Rel B3 and the original cable is pure [email protected] On a lark I ordered custom a Nordost Baseline and the attack and decay really came to life. I've seen and heard the Rel Baseline but it was with a S9 with nothing to compare to. Being a copper cable is has to be a lot better.
I have just installed the REL Baseline Blue with my REL Studio mk11, I needed XLR high level input so the shop terminated with a standard XLR connector, I can report the improvements in performance do justify the outlay I paid which was 199 GBP. The bass goes deeper, more punch and seems faster and integrates with my Sound lab Majestic 545 much better. I am glad I purchased, I had been using a Vann Damme Series Black cable prior, and the improvements with the Baseline Blue are not subtle. Highly recommended.
