    wow, sorry. you could try labkable though. i met the founder and their marketing manager. and they offered me review units with free shipping. brimar audio i think doesn't really do any promotions, creevy said. but i didn't realize customer service as well.

    I got screwed outta 4 weeks of my life waiting for something that never happened.
    I just copy pasted their stuff and sent it back to them asking what happened and they do not reply.
    I'd rather a company is aloof to everyone than hear they are great for some and zero for others. They still owe some kind of explanation.
    All my cables are custom.
    I know I gotta wait.
    Brimar just flat out screwed me

    Sadly, it seems that Brimar is out of business. Fortunately, I was able to get the beautiful "Monarch Supreme Reference" 3.5mm IC. Will do a shoot out against the Brise "Murakumo" IC. Might be veeery interesting....! :sunglasses:

    Ordered the "Supreme Reference Monarch (The Force)" for my Layla II. Will compare against the Brise Ref14.

    I want to experience some products (particular interconnectors, mini to mini 3.5mm) in Russia. Are they any ways to fulfill it?

    This year, Brimar will launch some new and very special products. Watch this space closely, folks...... :ok_hand:

    This short comparison between the Brimar Audio Labs Omni King 16 Braids vs the Brise Audio Murakumo6 was done by myself on request of Takuya Sugiyama (Hi Takuya!) Maybe it´s also of interest to all of you, so here we go....

    Sound quality comparison Brimar Audio Labs Omni King 16 Braids vs Brise Audio Murakumo6
    Source: AK380 Black Limited Edition
    Reference Earphones: Shure KSE1500
    Music: Isao Suzuki Trio "Manha De Carnaval“ from Black Orpheus, Three Blind Mice Records/1976, Flac 44.1, Ripped by AK Ripper MKII

    Omni King
    Very analog, much air between instruments, excellent bass slam and body, big headroom, excellent flow, spectacular dynamics, great detail, pitch black background, high definition mids, treble has the best extension I have ever heard, sparkly and rich sounding, also best separation I´ve heard.

    More neutral, reference like sound, soundstage is closer but bigger than OK, more in your face, worse pace rhythm and timing than OK, music seems slower, rather metallic sounding, not as enjoyable as OK, treble even more extended than OK, but with less sparkle, even more air between instruments than OK, but also leaner, rather anemic in it´s presentation, better detail than OK, even bigger headroom than OK.

    All in all it´s a matter of preference, although the Murakumo6 for me has almost too much air between instruments, which makes the presentation of the instruments sound rather lean and anemic. Also with the metallic flavor of it´s sound, the Murakumo6 takes 2nd place. The sound of the Omni King with almost 4 x the cost of the Murakumo6 is like a dish at a fine french restaurant: Rich, meaty with plenty of everything you´d ever wish for, but for beginners it might be almost too much to digest.

    Hey guys i just wanted to let you guys know about my experience ordering from brimar. Last year i ordered a grand master 8wire from a retailer in South Korea. The cables were exceptional, nothing sounded better with my custom laylas. However, the retailer messed up the order and didnt attach a bass pod. I was wondering if i should send them back because the bass was just too much, when something went wrong(im thinking the termination) and the sound muffled up and lost balance. I sent the cables back in for fixing and addition of bass pods. Doing this was really difficult because the only form of contact they would reply back from was their facebook site. It took me almost a year to get their address and send it back. A week ago, I checked the tracking and noticed there was a failed attempt at delivery. I told them about it (they didnt reply for a week) and early today they said they will check with the post office. I have lost contact again and have no idea what will happen next. I am told i will have to pay for the terminations if they have to replace it( i have only listened to the cables for 30min and defect started 5 min into listening). Is it normal for such a high end brand to not cover defects in their product? I really love their cables but cant recommend it to anyone because their customer support is non existent. has anyone had experiences with their customer support or know anyone working in Brimar?

    Maybe this is normal. I ordered a stock Brimar adapter two months ago and got a confirmation and then have heard nothing since. Tried contacting through an email provided on the confirmation after a month of hearing nothing and have had no response after two weeks. Tried again and still have heard nothing as another two month passed. I am left with disputing the charge on my credit card unless anyone has another idea.

    I ordered a stock brimar adaptator too, 3 months ago. Paid through PayPal and received confirmation by mail immediately. After that nothing, no email, no answers, no cable. After 1 1/2 months I have opened a dispute through PayPal and was refunded. Never received anything, not really serious company.
