Thank you for your prompt service and superb workmanship! Niesamowite!
Ordered 28 July, shipped 31 July and received a week later (Italy).
 
Cable: Claired Hybrid HPC 4pin XLR for HD600 
First impression (compared to stock): More slam and air. Dynamics and soundstage opened up. Bit more clarity and definition.

Looks great! I have a couple of curiosities because I want to get one for my HD650: Do you think the 2-pin connector is sturdy enough and will last? Does the cable/connector seem heavy for the headphone in such a way that it might cause damage (become loose) over time?
Thank you.

Its sturdy and well built. And definitely better than stock IMO.

A few weeks ago I asked Matt to make me a short 40cm Hybrid Series cable to go with my Noble 4/BTS setup that I use with my phone. I ordered it primarily from a comfort point of view as I'm not a fan of the memory wire that is used on Noble cables. I have no doubt that the Noble BTS uses a quality cable so I wasn't expecting the improvement in SQ that came with the Forza, quite outstanding. I could wheel out all the usual clichés, but I'll just say the cost of the cable was worth it for the SQ alone, never mind the comfort I'd been originally looking for!
 
I was also leaving my order a bit late for my impending holiday and was getting nervous that the cable wouldn't arrive in time, but Matt pulled a rabbit out of the hat and got the cable to me with a day to spare! Thanks Matt (and team), you guys rock!

I'm planning to get a Claire HPC Mk2 but I don't see the Astell & Kern 2.5mm TRRS as an option, is this possible? I already sent them a message though I was wondering if people have had it terminated to 2.5mm here. Also how long is the build time for you guys?

Hi Matt,
 
I sent you an email a couple of days ago. It's about the dual 3 pin male XLR to 4 pin male XLR adapter. Hopefully it's not in your spam folder!
