Over in the tweaks, cables, etc, i've started a thread that perhaps would better have been over here in headphones. Alas.

In any case, if you live in the UK you know it's not a simple proposition to find a replacement headphone cable supplier/distributor.

If you have experience of buying cables direct from the company in the US and bringing them into the UK, or have a dealer that doesn't end up costing you about double the price of the source, please headfi over to

and share your experiences with importing, shippers, duty, vat, etc

Many thanks

If you are thinking of ordering direct the useful link makes interesting reading:

If you can get someone to send an item as a 'gift' you may get away without paying anything! Also, sometimes the Post Office doesn't enforce the charges if u r lucky!

The £/$ exchange rate spot rate isn't quite so favourable nowadays unfortunately. The spot (money market) rate is currently about £1 = $1.72 and the tourist rate is only about £1 = $1.66.
