that yt link is broken. It works in the quote oddly enough :/

To be honest, I don't want another coloured headphone, I'm more interested in a home studio monitor headphone. And given the LCD-2 is used by some of my favourite producers for their tunes, and the AlphaDogs are the poor mans LCD-2, I think that says a lot about the quality of the AlphaDogs. I'd go for the HD650 but it's also more expensive, for nto muc gain in quality.... But it IS a masterpiece of a headphone. Everytime I oogle the wall at BBR, the HD650 always makes me stop in the moment. That's what I almost expect from the AlphaDogs. 

 

I've also been told the new pads are easier to drive, so I'm banking on my BH doing the trick, in high gain and on output 1 I'll have to experiment with the settings..

 

Oh, how's the bass and treble extension? Actually, let me know how the tracks in my signature hold up ;) No EQ. 

The Alphas hold up just fine. They are able to fully take care of both songs. I think the Quantum Soul track may be better engineered, I know I had an issue on that song with my CALs no such issue this time around. The bass is odd on the High Contrast track, like it wants to be lower then really is, nope there is the sub bass. It is there just isn't front and center. Both are very complex tracks with a lot going on, and there wasn't anything I could point out that seemed missing or out of place. Bass is quick and tight, they are a very fast headphone so nothing seems to drone on.

I am trying like hell to find a fault with them and I can't. Nothing is trying to be front and center. Maybe the upper mids but that is just being nit picky. The flute/pan flute whatever that sound is on the Quantum track is the most forward thing in the track, is that normal?

post #4442 of 5707

I'd say so. Other than the percussion, which is also pretty forward. 

OH! I have another one... It has female vocals, sax, guitar, it's a super busy track, I have full confident the AlphaDogs will hold up but how does the sax and guitar sound in this track? Is there any sibilance in her voice?

 

I've posted the video link before as well as it had a home in my sig for a while, so I'll just link it here http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=v6q4-twGGXk

The sax and guitar sound fine no clipping or distortion I could find. Nope there is no sibilance in her voice with my setup. Another great track man.

 

I felt the need to post something old, NSFW and wonderfully disturbing.

I listened to some Modestep a few weeks back, and must say I enjoy a few songs - Show Me a Sign, Sunlight, and To The Stars were three very good sounding tracks. I purchased the CD from Amazon, but it's delayed shipping... :( Just throwing those songs out there.

Mad dog lovers eh? I got those too. Pro 900's for playing out and when I wanna bass kick and mad dog for making flawless mixed cd's.

The album had some pretty good stuff on it, I like the remixes better than most of their original stuff but still very good.

 

Also, new M Machine is out, and fantastic. Can't get over the scale of this song:

Yeah, the new M Machine EP is beautiful!
I've been really enjoying it.

just saw mikes (hifiguy528) interview with MrSpeakers about the new pads - looking good.

post #4450 of 5707

So normally I been listening to these songs you guys post on my desktop speakers mostly out of pure laziness.  My lappy has the better motherboard sound quality so I hook the Beyers and E11 to that, and its also where I have iTunes installed since I refuse to install iTunes on my gaming rig.  But I surf with an old gaming rig so that's where the speakers come into play.  It's only a 2.1 setup and they're cheap speakers that came with a Dell machine (before I started building my own PCs) but the clarity is insane.  I would easily have to spend $300+ to find a pair of PC speakers better than them and the sub is pretty decent too.

 

With all this headphone talk though I had to fire up the Beyers because well let's face it, unless you have a really nice speaker setup (and 2.1 isn't going to cut it) you can't match the soundstage of a nice quality headphone.   I listened to the last 3 pages or so of this thread and holy hell on the Skream - Exothermic Reaction song!  basshead.gif   I should have cut the gain down on the E11, but I didn't want to lose it.   That song with the Beyers litterally sounded like the ocean was lashing its whip in front of me and the dub wub gave it a 3D effect.   The other songs got a huge boost too but that song was on a completely different level with the DT990s.  That ocean whip was... WOW.   Mind = exothermic reaction.
