Default Bybee Fraud Protection

After looking at ways to improve the sound from my iphone 6 (earbuds and earphone reviews always pointed back to what I already use), I made an impulse buy of the Bybee quantum signal enhancer!!! (Ultimately I thought tearing it apart would be fun).

The result was that American Express blocked the payment to parts Connextion due to fraud protection.

Even though they gave me a second chance, I told AmEx to go ahead with the payment.

Stay tuned for the fun part.

nailed it!

I doubt the fraud protection had anything to do with Bybee. It was probably your first transaction to a Canadian or international business and that's what triggered it.

AmEx's E-Mail said "Fraud Protection" in large, bold, text. AmEx's phone messages said "Security Concerns".

Also, I've also order way too much stuff from them.

You forgot he probably didn't get the correct paperwork from NSA.

Credit card companies will often block foreign transactions (especially if your card is not often used for such) in an effort to prevent fraud.

The biggest thing you can do to improve the sonics of an iPhone is to use full rez ALAC or AIFF format files.

They make incredibly satisfying sound when dropped from a 10 story building, but it is rather short-lived.

I actually like the sounds coming out the idac. Last weekend I finally made my 20' long mini stereo RCA to dual mono XLR cable, to compare my iphone with my highly modified Marantz cd63's.

Initial A/B tests make me want to cry, more to come.
