Sorry for not posting before (busy at work, always).   For me when, with listening enjoyment, when one headphone subtracts the other adds.  The main difference between the two is the soundstage. The alpha dog's lateral soundstage depth is huge. It's hard not to notice it or be impressed by it. Compared to a T1 / K812 / HD800 it doesn't feel very tall though, affecting the overall 3D feel of the soundstage. I find it more enjoyable than the sig pro's soundstage but it's...
  I've had this cable for the ultrasones for nearly a year.I didn't want to say this before as it'll start bickering and arguments, but I wholeheartedly agree. The difference is very large.  It's not like swapping RCA/Phono cables, or digital ones where the difference in my opinion is tiny if at all detectable by ear. It's more like swapping amps - that's how big of a change it is. The mid bass emphasis is gone and a bit of hardness in the upper midrange also recedes....
Heard one of these little things today and was very impressed. It showed it's superiority over the audinst mx2 in more than a few ways.   There's always an answer here on headfi - I was experiencing the pops and clicks - and am sure the updated firmware would put it right. 
T5p is very good for classical, though I'm not the biggest fan of this headphone in general, have to say.    I've given it a lot of time and chances (3rd pair) and it just doesn't hit the heights I wanted it to.
Clicked on this thread as I thought someone was asking advice on buying a can opener.     Real let down.
Play around with it and have fun    though keep the volume normal/low!
hmmm, with sinegen it's not the db that I would look at. It's the frequency.    Set the volume (db) at like a level where 100hz can be heard comfortably, then move the frequency control only. You're hearing will follow a curve (http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Fletcher%E2%80%93Munson_curves) but that's natural.
try a free program called 'sinegen'   probably better than the online one.
Your hearing is probably good - the headphone and your listening station may not extend well enough beyond 10khz. Persons hearing dropping off at 11.5khz is natural anyway.   Using them frequency tone generators isn't the way you really find all the differences between headphone capabilities. Listening to music is more useful. 
Sure mate.   It works perfectly fine, but not too great for sound quality. It acts as if to increase the amps output resistance and makes headphones seem darker / muddier / more closed in. This is especially true of the lower impedance ones i've got and say with a T1 it's much less pronounced.    None of this is surprising at all btw as this is how it's meant to work. Basically it does it's job perfectly!   It's quite big though (physically big I mean). I'll post a...
