Received another yesterday asking why i am ignoring them and giving me the specs and the name of the cable they want, again i said i will not provide a cable.

 

Today i received a messages saying it's in my best interest to provide them with a review cable and that i am being uncooperative and that they will write about me and i will be broken, whatever that means lol.

Seems that someone tries to get a couple of cables from your for free.  Like you I will do the same, i.e. just ignore them with a big laugh.:darthsmile:

That someone is pretty stupid. From all the cable makers he chose Frank, the one that doesn't need the publicity resulted from a review smily_headphones1.gif

He chose toxic because frank makes one of the best cables money can buy... Only frank is also one of the few brands who doesnt do those 'provide free demo cables to keep, for a positive review' thingies.. wink.gif

Oops..now i think about it..i never ever put a review up for my superb 8wire dual mono BW baked Frank baked me.. Oopsie..sorry frank.. I am just to afraid now mentioning the amp i am using with it wink.gif
But i promise..as soon i have my NEW rig complete (new amp and headphone )next year..i will open a new thread dedicated to that review... I will post a link here then for anyone interested.. tongue.gif

Yes, things like that exist.

 

Wow, thanks for enlightening me! Scary, but also kind of intriguing...

 

On another note, totally agree with Frank not needing the publicity. Ridiculous threat!

Why on earth would you want an angled one for the HE, maybe slightly angled like they have on the LCD headphones would be nice.

Someone posting a positive review in exchange for free gear would be shilling. It is a very serious offence here and not something to be joked about or suggested lightly. Even one well-known reviewer has been banned and all their reviews deleted after they were caught doing so. Manufacturers who do such things would likely be banned and blacklisted, with most, if not all discussion of their products deleted.  Again, don't joke around even in the slightest about this kind of thing. It is taken extremely seriously. In its most extreme form it is even arguably illegal. Not to mention, slander and libel is too.
