Since we're close I can contribute. You get to chose which you'd like to borrow, too. You have to add it to the guide though for me to do it :P

Maybe if you send him the iCan he'll realize it's pretty sweet.

I can't currently cover any shipping unless I sell my Anniversary, though. Yea... I'm that broke frown.gif

Well, its a planar, so I'd want something with more power than the iCan.
post #16220 of 37458
The Alpha is 2-3db more efficient than the Mad Dogs. And the iCAN drives them just fine...

Maybe you shouldn't of gotten rid of your Compass 2?

Needed the money. And the Fostex drivers are known to scale with a lot more power. I noticed it with the MD 3.2. So while they may be more efficient, those drivers still take in a lot.

The Marantz can't push them enough?

post #16223 of 37458

I feel ya on needing the money part.

 

I was just offering because you said "legitimate amp"... as if what I have isn't. I know planars scale better with more power... but I guess we all have different definitions of the word legitimate.

Yeah, $200 down the drain. I had to find another Mixamp on Ebay. :/

I don't see myself buying any for now.

 

I bet you're really wishing that SR-5002 hadn't failed when it did right now...

 

I could lend you a nice amp, but it's not going to power the Alpha Dog, let alone the vast majority of the headphones on the market, as you know.

 

EDIT: MA900 GET! Quickly took it out of the box, put it on, and put some music on. First impressions are VERY promising already, and MLE wasn't kidding about the comfort...though I do have to shift it quite forward relative to my ears in order to keep my pinnae from touching the inside of the cups.

AxelCloris,
Thanks for the update, I'll have to get around to posting my M-100 impressions. Does have more high-end sparkle.

Well if you remember how close I was to keeping the AD700 when EQ'd... I appreciate performance, but I also appreciate value. I can appreciate a headphone on it's own merits.

From what I understand, the M-100 isn't designed to be a more neutral response like the M-80, but rather that it has a V-shape to the sound. Not an overly aggressive one like some headphones, but definitely not a neutral response. But that's just how I processed my reading about the set. I'm still looking to listen to them down the road. Over ear is much more comfortable with glasses than on ear.

 

Definitely looking forward to your thoughts on them. popcorn.gif

Looks like Onkyo has joined the headphone world...
