Yikes. What a sad story... good ending though.

Snake oil I tell you! Snake oil!

Does this mean JenaLabs messed up that R10? Or did someone try to recable themselves (messing it up), gave it to JenaLabs, then they tried their best to cable it?

Alex does a great job. I have a lot of respect for the work he puts into his customers headphones (Yes I am somewhat biased)

Yes

What's kinda interesting is aloaudio actually made a huge post about the JenaLabs R10 a couple months ago. I wonder if Ken over at ALO knew about this. He gave a few pairs of R10s recabled by them a listen...

I'd like to hear this story from the R10 owner's perspective. I'm rather shocked to hear that Jena offered nothing in the way of compensation after apparently nearly destroying a rather expensive OOP headphone.

I can't think of a better situation to summon the mobs, pitchforks, and torches. THANK YOU for having the guts to post this debacle as a warning to other audio hobbyists, and especially R10 owners.

Agreed, looks like Alex is a true pro and he did a great resurrection-job (calling it a mere repair underestimates the work) here. He displays the level of competence that I strive for at my job as a software engineer

1500$ for the recable Really a good stuff

I think I will stick with my stock headphone cables for the foreseeable future.

That's truly appalling on Jenalabs' end. Kudos to Alex for coming the rescue.

That's why I leave my headphones stock except for repairs.

It's especially bad given how strongly they blow their own trumpet about their expert R10 recabling abilities.
