The 'oxygen free' factor doesn't increase sound quality, however in theory it's supposed to reduce corrosion and it's the degradation of the actual copper itself, which reduces sound quality.
It's like preservatives in food. They don't add to the flavour, but maintain the quality of the food for consumption.
Personally, I go for the 'oxygen free'. My front speakers are currently running off Monster XPHP and the copper looks as good as it did the day I bought it... 14 years ago.
