These things look beautiful on pictures but photos do not covey the glory that is Reign 24. And the sound... It appears as though the sound smoothed out. My he6 off the F3 really strike me now as super flat and smooth headphones. I really think that this cable combines the best of silver and copper - gobs of detail, great bass and smooth 3d easy to fall in love with presentation. With this cable, the HE6 has become my favorite can. Until now it was head to head with my HD800, but not any more.

 

But I think I am preaching to the choir here, so let me tell you something that was somewhat unique about my transaction with Trevor. Basically, when Trevor send me an email, informing me that the headphones were dropped off at his USPS office for delivery, I expressed concern about using that carrier. You see, my mailman notoriously delivers my mail seemingly all over the city and brings other peoples mail to my address. Sometimes my neighbors bring me what was delivered to them but oftentimes when he delivers it elsewhere the mail gets lost. Ironically enough it is usually the more expensive items that get lost. For instance, when I bought my DNA Sonett, the amp was lost. When I called DC USPS I was given the runaround. THe 1800 number directed me to call a number that just kept on ringing and no one answered, and when I called the main DC office, they gave me few different numbers to call on different occasions and when I finally got connected to what appeared to me my mail sorting facility, when I explained my situation, the woman on the other line literally yelled "That cotton pickin' ....." and hung up the phone. my subsequent attempts to call that number were futile. I had wait to file insurance claim couple of weeks after the package was not delivered and then I was told that I would take couple of months before they would complete the insurance invention so that I  can get my money. After couple of important items getting lost, I stopped using the USPS in DC as much as I can. So anyway, long and behold, the cable did NOT arrive at my door the day Trevor was assured it would and I started to have flashbacks and a mini freak out. I contacted Trevor at the end of that day and he was incredibly responsive. He immediately answered all my email, agreed to deal with USPS, and even offered to make me a new cable if this one does in fact get lost. Thankfully, the cable arrived the following day. The box was marked "hold" so for some reason the post office held on to it to deliver it after the promised delivery date. Maybe my mailman is paying me back after all the times I called to complain on him. The bottom line however is that Trevor is an amazing person to deal with. Customer service is amazing. IME (and I have heard bunch of well regarded cables) his cables are top tier. You cannot do better, especially if you consider the price. With his attention to detail in production and customer service, I am gonna be returning to him for all me cable needs from now on!

 

Congratulations Trevor on cables that could really be considered a piece of art! That is what my wife actually said and I certainly agree.


Very good testimony! Speaks of the highly regarded character that Trevor is known to have. He is a great guy, and will go that extra mile to make sure customers are satisfied and happy. Glad all turned out well with your cable, and now... pics!

I just purchased a headphone cable from Trevor for my Audeze LCD-2 and can tell you that the above comment is the truth!

He was very commutative with me, going to great lengths to make sure that I was buying the exact cable that I needed.

I have nothing but praise for Trevor.


I should be getting my cable in a week or so, I cannot wait to see/hear it!

Sounds wonderful, looking to pick up a couple more cables for my HD800 and Mad Dogs soon! I think Trevor is very busy at the moment, but he deserves all the praise and admiration. Truly, the epitome of fine craftsmanship and quality customer service.

Appreciate the kind remarks!  I am just happy that this time around your post office got you the package Cante (albeit a day past guaranteed date)!

 

We recently had a package delivered on an incorrect street by USPS, funny enough the post office

in that area was very responsive and helped me out quite a bit, ultimately the courier went to every house on the street the next delivery day and found the package and delivered it to the correct address.  So there are some stories out there of good service as well by USPS.

 

But definitely it sounds like your post office is a different situation all together!  I have no idea why they would put "hold" on your package to be honest. 

 

 

 

Regardless, I just wanted to drop a line and say there have been delays to a fair amount of emails recently, but all should get a reply by end of day today.

If for some reason your email did not get a reply simply just send it again and it will bump to the top.

I'm just in the process of finalizing an order with Trevor for a balanced Skuld 8 with a single-ended adapter.

Although I am nowhere near even receiving my cable, I just have to say Trevor has been incredibly helpful and thorough in his service. He really makes the cable purchase a personal "consultation" to help you gain knowledge and make an informed choice. I can see where the positive comments on this thread come from.

I can already tell you that I can't foresee any reason to buy cables anywhere else in the future.

And I haven't even finished placing my order! Good stuff.

Trevor, I know you're a busy man but any chance you could provide an update on how you're going with your pure silver cables which aren't too far away from being released?
