Dan replied to email very very quickly and yes his service has been excellent even to me who hasn't spent anything so far! The return policy is very fair, but the website isn't consistent - some places still say "returns only for people in the USA" - a minor oversight as his emails suggested otherwise. Totally respect the small business, the service, and doing what you love - I run my own business too :)   I'm just trying to work out if I want a $75 pair of...
  Yep, massive threads, I'll have a look through :)
Thanks Kamakahah. I have a PPA with a DAC in it that I use with the LCD2 at home, fed with optical cable from the PC, but at work I really just want something comfortable and closed that blocks out noise and makes the music sound good. A900's were perfect, other than size. I could take the PPA in, but I don't want that stolen too, so any amp I have at work needs to be small enough that I can easily throw it in a drawer at the end of the day. In practice I'll probably not...
Digital audio output - now that's an interesting idea. I'll have a bit of Google around to see if I can work that out. May save a little battery too, though the phone's pretty good with batteries.   Thanks for the suggestions :) I guess I should try it with my PPA first to see how necessary an amp is huh? I'm less fussy than many.
Good to know about the isolation, that would be a good benefit. Can you compare the sound signature, and how comfortable they are to wear?
Thank you, that's much appreciated. Can you compare the sound, and the comfort? I'd be driving from a weak source, can get a little amp but it's easier if I don't have to.
Just posted this on an older thread... but can anyone compare them with the DT880? I listen to music quite quietly, at work, I saw a comment that suggested Mad Dogs were better at higher volumes.
Can anyone compare them with the Beyerdynamic DT880? NobleHiFi says "The DT880's bass is a little leaner than the Mad Dog, but it kicks harder. Overall the detail of the DT880 is more crisp and the upper ranges have a lot more presence and sparkle, but this makes the Mad Dog a lot more forgiving of higher volumes, where they really open up in the bass and soundstage." I listen to music reasonably quietly, from a mobile device at work, so I need headphones that work well...
I drive them to work in my Toyota Samsung Galaxy S4. Obviously I'm not going for audiophile sound quality, I just want to make sure the headphones are driven well enough to sound pretty good.
Thanks for the suggestions. The ATH is "heavy bass", which isn't me. The Sony relies on electronics and batteries to fix poor drivers, and they look a bit flimsy.
