Hi,

just to say Frank made me a special cable for my Philips X1 headphones a little while ago .   He is a busy man and I had to wait a while for it but it was so worth the wait.  

At least this thread  on Head-Fi understands what "better" cables can do to headphone listening over stock. This particular combination of Cryo treated Litz woven High purity silver plated copper makes a massive difference over the stock Philips supplied cable without putting the 3.5mm jack socket under strain ( Which is a problem)

The upper mids and top end were opened up fully giving the Philips full reign over the music rather than the filtered sound I was getting with stock( which I listened to for just a full 5 minutes recently before binning).

I fully endorse Toxic cable  for the quality and sound improvement it has given me.  I have used much more expensive cables over the years on my HD 650's and this is by far the best upgrade on a set of Phones regardless of the cost..

I cannot speak more highly of Toxic Cable. Keep up the good work Frank

Thanks for the replies re IE80 upgrades. For the record that is a Qable LOD in the front of the picture, not obvious I admit.

I'm pretty close to ordering a Silver Widow cable...just waiting on some others' feedback as they'll be getting theirs before mine.

First negative I hear... I can only look at the post count of this thread and say that Frank has a very high hit rate of positive reviews.  

post #2319 of 9356

Sorry is this the same Frank we're talking about?

Because I've found him nothing but helpful, Kind and professional, 

Even now considering how tired he must be!

 

I for one back and vouch for Frank, 

Ive not met him in person, Im not brown nosing or looking for a free cable lol,

Just speaking from experience and being a happy customer!

 

Paul :)

"...from what i heard is that he chooses who gets to review his cables and that is as bad as fish oil smells."

Interesting. As far as I know, anyone can do a review on Frank's cables - and I don't know of any negative reviews. Even when people sometimes doubt their impact on sound quality, they at least acknowledge that his cables are very well made and usually more comfortable than stock cables. My guess is that there are people who simply find it too ominous when someone does a great job all the time, so for them something has to be wrong with the reviews or the people doing the reviews... rolleyes.gif

No wonder Frank was tired. Reading that Facebook page it seemed rather intens. The guy who wrote the Headphiles post seems to be a Head-fi member. Maybe he should invest some time reading this Thread:)

Guys...I have recently started a blog about my story into this wonderful passion . My posts are my personal impressions of the stuff I owned :) . I have reserved a post for my future impressions of the Silver Widow I will be receiving at the end of the month. I can assure you that it has nothing to do with Frank, and he never contacted me to write my impressions on it. So ... I would not believe the fact that Frank chooses the reviewers of his cables. This thread is proof of that. Count the number of happy customers, and you shall see that statistically speaking that is rather impossible. 

 

I for one chose Toxic, as this thread had only happy customers. He specifically says what materials he uses in his cables, materials that are proven to be of high quality, not like other cable manufacturers who don't specify the materials they use in their cables (and you get cables for x hundred dollars made from the same material your electrical system is made in your home (ETP), even though the manufacturer pays the less than tenth of the price  for the materials you pay for the final product).

I read it....Whew.....rolleyes.gif

 

All I can say is I love my Toxic Cables. They made a significant positive improvement to my HD650's and the Silver Widows are worth the increase vs the already amazing Silver Poison's.

 

It is a big world (Literally with the internet and the ability to market globally with ebay) People will develop favorite brands and products. Corporate secrets do make a difference and standards are slippery sometimes. For me as a non scientist, my ears are what make the judgements. As a client, Frank has provided unparalleled service.

 

So,

 

My one observation is that public posts in haste on worldwide forums (We've all done them redface.gif ) are sometimes something we wish we could take back and that thread had several people who probably should have walked away from the keyboard.....

 

Back to the fun....I have some JH16's on order!  and a Wyred 4 Sound DAC-2 coming this week....biggrin.gif

Anyone can purchase a cable from me and review it. 99% of the reviews posted about my cables, are by those who purchased.

I do choose who i send review cables to, i do not send them to someone i have never ever heard of myself. If i sent a cable to everyone that asks, i would be out of business. But to say i choose everyone that reviews my cables, is ridiculous.

 

I had very good reason to deny sending a review sample in this case.

 

As for buying the cable, i have an eBay store and website, even my mother-in-law can go on their, and buy a cable.
