Plus the stock connectors are awful and difficult to work with.

I don't know why they chose the connector they have now. It is the worst one to work with of any headphone I've owned. A hardwire would be tempting although I am also paranoid the cable is going to go bad and it would suck if it were to go bad and I have to send it somewhere to get it fixed.

You mean besides back to Aphrodite Cu29? Robert guarantees his work on them.

Don't forget the possibility of the cable getting attacked by a supposedly "tame" animal... pretty sure that's not covered... I'm just sayin'...

lol like from a cat? :P

 

I'm not really sure what to do at this point yet. I'll either get them hardwired and sell my two cables for the HE6 or just sell them.

So I took a pretty enormous leap into summit-fi thanks to elwappo99. I'm sorry for taking your cans, man! 

 

I have to say, I'm not sure how many people take such a death-defying leap from a pair of $300 Mad Dogs to these guys, but all I can really say right now is... unh. Wow. I can't really express how horrifying it was first putting them on my head and not knowing what to expect, and between the heat of my room, the stress of having driven a distance to pick them up, a project due later that night, and the foreign sound signature, I actually hated them at first. I was sweating bricks, and not just because of the heat.

 

The day after though? Jeez, flipped that judgment on its ass, hard. Wooooo... everything that has been said about its sound has been said. I'm just tossing my coin into the pot. Cheers, guys.

Did you get the Emo as well?

 

Total opposite sound sig when compared to the Mad Dogs.  Can't wait for your impressions..

At the gym on my phone. Just wanted to confirm I'm driving them with the emo a100. Thank you, Daryl, for informing my decision by the way, as well as para if he's still around. Will check back after iron pumping
