I traded with [ak]zip, his MS-1's for my HD590's. He was always communicating, sent great pics of his cans, and was completely honest. He also packaged them well, and shipped them when he said he would.
Did a straight trade with Alex with my SA5000's for his HD650's. Some of the best communication I've seen in a transaction with instant e-mail replys. Great guy to work with and would gladly do another transaction with him. Thanks.
Bought my iPod. Didn't think anyone would want it Seems very devoting to following through with a deal, that is Zip's strong point. Whenever there was a problem he (she?) was already figuring a solution or a way to contact me, etc. I have been going through a kind of blase period lately so it balanced out
Bought a very nice looking and reasonably priced DIY cable for my HD-650 from Alex. Not only were his communiques prompt, but he decided at the last minute to retool the cable to improve its sleeving, without any change in price or timing for the deal. Shipping was timely and I am very pleased with the cable's physical and sonic qualities.
I would not hesitate to deal with Alex again, and I encourage him to expand his headphone cable-making hobby. You can bet there would be plenty of other Headfiers who would be interested in his handywork.
[AK]Zip sold me his recabled AKG K340s. He was great to talk with and responded to all my questions quickly. The headphones were shipped out right after I sent payment, and arrived in a few days well-packaged and in great condition. The cabling itself was especially good! Highly recommended Head-Fier -- Thanks for an easy purchase!
I had alex make some custom DIY cables for my soundcard and HD-650. He kept exceptional communication, keeping me updated with every step involved. The cables came well packaged, and were probably most polished out of all DIY work I have seen up to date. If you need any DIY cables, this is the right man to ask.
