Top marks Surf Cables.  I’d been trying for ages to find cables to connect my Cypher Labs Duet balanced amp to a AK SP1000 DAP at one end and a pair of Focal Utopia headphones (with bespoke 2.5mm balanced cable) at the other end.  My email enquiry  to Surf Cables was answered the same day with my custom cables being shipped the next day.  (The standard shipping took only six days to reach me in the UK and that included a weekend.)  The custom cables themselves were reasonably priced and look to be of excellent quality - the resultant end-to-end sound quality is absolutely superb.  This is my second order from Surf Cables and l am more than happy to use them again or recommend them to others.

There's a lot of over the top hype from many of the custom cable manufacturers out there. Surf Cables does not make those types of claims, and their pricing is much more reasonable. That's why I chose to have them mod my Grado GS1000i headphones so I could take advantage of the balanced functionality of my Pono player. The work was done very fast and I no longer think of selling my Grado's. They sound too good!

Wow, just received my Pono Balanced cables for my ATH M70x phones. Great Job by John and the staff. All went well, shipping and work was FAST. John had to modify the phones for balanced mode and they sound FANTASTIC.


Thanks for the super quick turnaround on my Grado headphones mod and Pono balanced cables. Great quality construction and connectors. Pono player sounds even better in balanced mode.
