The cables are generally divided into brake and shifter categories. There are a couple types of both, but the brake cable heads in both variations are larger and by all accounts incompatible with shifters.
The shifter cables are either with the head in-line(the cylinder with the flat portion to the end) or the crossways type(the head 90 degrees from the former). However you will rarely if ever see this variation anymore, so it is safe to assume the type you need is the in-line, which is easily obtained.
