This is weird... I just fired up the E11 this morning with the Mad Dogs and now it sounds fine. So much so that I decided to match the levels with the LDM+, and swap back and forth several times with different music. Now the E11 sounds the way it should. How this is possible compared to what I wrote yesterday is beyond me. Just like that, the entire sound of the E11 has improved drastically after the second battery recharge. The bass has leaned out a little and...
Of course, I can't find the thread now, but a forum member spun some aluminum cups for his along with some tan/brown leather and used the LCD-2 pads, also included 4 small bass ports per cup for tuning with different pads.
I notice the LDC-2 pads look somewhat similar to the Stax pads, and they go for $80 a pair. I wonder how they compare.
I just did a small write-up in the Portable Amps forum comparing it to the LDM+.
I recently purchased and received a new pair of Mr Speakers Mad Dogs with all the options as well as a new FiiO E11 amp with extra battery and charger. After putting a full charge on the stock battery via USB, I've gotten a total of roughly 9 hours out of it. That's with the amp set to "High Voltage" and "High Gain". The bass EQ has been left off. The volume has been between 5 and 6 most of the time, sometimes up to almost 7, sometimes a little below 5. The LDM+ is just...
Thanks for your input. I may just give them a try if I find a pair somewhere at a decent price. I wonder if Dan ever tried them.
And you have directly compared the Stax pads to the latest leather Dog Pads?
I'm sorry, but I have to disagree with this statement.Between me, my brothers and my father, we probably have close to a 1000 pipe organ CD's from all sorts of recording labels such as Telarc, Dorian, RCA, Sony, etc, etc. Granted, there are some rather nasty sounding ones in there, but the majority of them that contain pipe organs with a 32' stop have the 16Hz still in the recording. Even the few CD's we have of the Atlantic City organ at the Boardwalk Hall Auditorium with...
So what's with these Stax pads and where does one get them? Are they even better than Dan's latest offerings, the leather Dog Pads, the ones that I have?
Considering that the forum members here say the Mad Dogs compare easily to cans costing upwards of $1200 and more, I'm willing to say that they would probably make you very happy, if not exceed your expectations as far as how they compare to your HE-500's. Going strictly off of memory from several years ago, I think the Mad Dogs totally stomp the HD600's, HD650's, and K701's into the ground. They don't compare to the Mad Dogs. And for closed headphones, they are just as...
