A few pages back in this thread I posted a close-up photo of this plug inserted into the Mad Dog ear cup.

 

I did read your post. I just don't feel like making irreversible modifications to my MD.

I just got the vmoda cable yesterday and it like it much better!! It's about two feet short for my desk though. Is it made in a longer length? Or is someone making a similar cable or longer sizes?

 

thanks...

I saw Tyll's video about the V-Moda M100 and I think the cable was much longer. Maybe you want to check that out.

After listening to the Sig Pros, M100s for weeks without having the Mad Dogs nearby, just received my updated ones and... it still takes a bit getting used to... but once your ears/brain settles... BLISS.

Why don't you use the stock cable? Its longer, don't know about the sonic difference though as I never tried to compare cables.

I do like the vmoda cable better than the stock. It's more flexible, lighter and just easier to use. If it were just a couple feet longer it'd be perfect.

If you are using it at home, then lighter more flexible shouldn't be a problem right?

It may have been your thread that I read about the cable / cup mod. A minor scraping here and there is pretty easy to accomplish.  Which cable did you use for the mod?  I've used the Neutrik 90 degree 1/8th plugs before and it's pretty neat how they go together. However, I've found that one can't really use a cable like the Mogami Gold Neglex,as it tends to have a diameter that is a bit overwhelming for that connector.

 

Thanks,

 

Edit: I found your thread.  I realize that you used the original V-Moda cable with the Neutrik connector.  I hate wires that are enamel coated and thin as you've described.  Some of the Sennheiser headphones (HD-428, 429, etc.) series has some real thin conductor cable that happen to be treated also.  But, Sennheiser has stuffed the three cables into one outer sleeve and I believe they've used enough enamel on the cables that they didn't use any plastic insulation on them.  A real PITA to work with and solder.

 

Which pads do you have on your Mad Dogs?  Are those the Dog Padz?

Anybody know if Dan will be having any sort of black friday/cyber monday sale on the mad dogs?

post #1796 of 6388

Haven't heard of anything like that. He did say that he does sell the returned MD's at a nice price through his blog I think.

He sends out alerts on twitter when he has a return up for sale.  @MrSpeakers I believe.

Strange duplication error.  Sorry...
