I have never accepted USD in payment. I do sometimes get customers pay me in USD by mistake after they do their own conversion, but this is promptly refunded. There have been the odd occasion where i they have done this and i accepted it, as i had something to pay for in USD myself.

 

I always ask that payments are made in GBP, otherwise i have to pay further fee's to change it back to GBP as commtrd says below.

 

When you make payment through PayPal in GBP, it should tell you what it will be costing you in USD before you submit the payment.

Well he is in UK and to get his money out of paypal if it was paid in GBP to start with he does not incur any fees to transfer to his currency (or spread). The customer paid to do the transfer at time of purchase. At the end of the month those fees and spreads can be costly for someone doing international business cross-currency.

I think so too. Thanks mate!

When I went into Paypal each time and entered Dollars then selected conversion it converted the payment to pounds. Simple process. Good thing no math was involved!...biggrin.gif

Payment has always been in GBP. Not sure if your last order was on eBay, if so, then eBay would have done the conversion for you and showed it as USD.

No it was Paypal. Maybe Paypal currency conversion won't work this time???

So today I decided to dust off my HD800 as I've been listening to the LCD-3 and the HE-6 with much higher preference and hooked up the copper venom.....I think out of all the cables Frank has made for me this so far definitely is a home run.  I couldn't listen to the HD800 before due to the brutally revealing nature and the high fatigue factor but these cables really do seem to tame the headphones while maintaining the details/clarity that the headphone is known for.  I've been listening for about a hour and I haven't really felt any significant fatique (not to mention they are much more comfortable than the he6 and the lcd3 lol).   Thanks Frank for bringing life back to my HD800 haha.....can't believe what a difference these cables make.

For me I used SW with my HD800 and there is no feeling of fatigue.  My SW matches with HD800 wonderfully but I believe it very much depends on what kind of headphone amplifier you are using.  I am using Yulong A18 with HD800.

I got the Schiit stack (gungnir, mjolnir, lyr) that has worked well for all the rest of the headphones I own (adh7000, he500, he6, lcd2, lcd3)....I like the setup since you can switch from tube to solid state easily and they're very competent components for the cost.  I've never liked the hd800 pairing with the mjolnir but I feel that these cables make enough of a difference for me to start enjoying them again.  Still though, listening to these hd800 on most of the materials I like, I think I still slant toward the LCD-3. 

 

You are absolutely correct though, I think a different amp would make a bigger difference obviously.  Just running out of desktop space heh.

BTW I am considering buying either LCD2 or LCD3 in addition to my two HD800s. From your personal experience which one you think sounds better and which Toxic cable (SW ?) can make them sound the best.
