I just love bass, what can I say, and the M-100 with some EQing delivers NICE bass in DROVES
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?
