Generally fine if you're purchasing parts, but if you see something for an abnormally low price, probably a fake. I spotted some fake goods when I was there last time.

Care to share some links?

I spent around around 30mins down there I've not say over priced and he  was helpful.

Don't get me wrong i could be wrong :) 

I can't comment on the quality, but he did let me demo a lot of stuff.

 

Any other places you know of that can do custom sockets and cables ?

We could get the bulk cable of WireWorld Platinum Eclipse from this authorized dealer locally

Is there someone trustworthy in Hong Kong who could make great quality headphone cables?

 

So far I only saw Peter Wong who might have the skills according to his DIY products. Those WireWorld cables are really serious stuff and I would prefer not to take any chances at all. Thanks.

 


 

BTW, I just found the address of that Wan Chai 298 shop

May offer doing a headphone cable at a cup of coffee :biggrin: (just interested in testing that cable)

I'm still figuring out what connectors to get at the moment so we could start with something small like just a foot for 1K first.

 

Then make something simple like a very short interconnect to go between Solo -db and Rx Mk3-B+ just for fun.

 

Actually they're selling 3 different flavors over there so we could always work on the baby steps at the very beginning:

We could actually see what's inside each type

i don't think its that one. the store im talking about is owned by an old man and he only does custom/ repair work.

I just came across this thread now. I have the green light and am in the market to make my next purchase. I've usually bought used in the past but given the HPs that I am considering for my next purchase, I think new this time will make more sense. Currently thinking about the TH900, TH600 or Hd800. If the latter two, I may be able to add a desktop dac/amp (maybe something like the Audio GD 11.32).

Any recommendations for a shop that carries all three (to sit comfortably and try) and will agree to a good discount?

Jaben does carry all three models, but not sure if they're up for demo-ing. You could call them and ask (: (I recall the HD800 being locked inside a beautiful glass display cupboard)

In addition to TH900, TH600, and HD800, they seemed to have tons of brands available

Thanks seeteeyou, that looks exactly like what I am looking for. Looks like they have everything that I could possibly want to try. Hopefully they will be negotiable as well.

Any of you shopped around for these three headphones recently? I would appreciate it if you could PM me to share the prices that you have been quoted. Thanks.
