Indeed, Brian is a class act. Fast responses and very fair prices. I saw a picture of a recabled Klipsch Custom 3 and my jaw fell to floor. I thought is was nearly impossible - until now.
It's a known issue that the stock Klipsch Custom 3 (C3) cable will kink and stiffen over time, leading to channel failure. A pity since the sound signature is what I've been searching for. Take in consideration that the C3 original price was $299, but can be found used every now and then for under $100.
You see, the C3 is very special to me despite the stock cable issue. Out of the long list of mid and top tier universal IEMs' I've owned, it's the C3 that I've owned the most (5 times); had it reshelled twice, a negative experience that I'll never endure again with the long waits, refits, and issue upon issue. The roller coaster ride of absolutely loving the sound, but hating the cabled resulted in the multiple sale/purchase.
For $35 to recable the C3 is nothing short but a miracle and a true bargain. I also purchased his latest Sunrise cable and it equaled Brian's impeccable service and attention to detail. Needless to say, I'm proud to finally say that these C3 are permanent keepers.
Lastly, the 3 week wait period ended to be half that from the point of order. Brian has my highest recommendation. He's my "Goto" for all my future headphone/cable needs.
Here's some eye and ear candy:
