"Mad Dog" by MrSpeakers, modified Fostex T50RP review - Page 129

^^I agree. The is a very natural lifelike sound to these hp's. Especially the mids. Only beat out by the hd650 IMO.

thanks for the heads up preproman - i had planned to wait until next year to buy these but free international shipping to Australia was too good an offer to overlook.

Nice, you'll love them!

I’m more excited to hear the MD’s (orthos!!!) then the V-Moda M-100’s that I have on pre-order.

 

Actually I was hoping someone could assist me with a newbie query on amping. Looking through this thread it’s clear that the MDs benefit from a little juice from an amp. The home setup that I’m planning on using them for doesn’t have a dedicated headphone amp. Rather I’ve got a DJ mixer that I use as a pre-amp for my turntables.

 

The mixer's HP output is:

  - impedance >= 8 ohms

  - nominal output level 90 db/mW max. at 47 ohms

 

so, based on the 1/8th headphone impedance rule of thumb, the mixer HP output shouldn’t have any trouble running the 50 ohm headphone at close to 90 db/mW... right???

I am currently addicted to the sound of my MD paired with a Topping D1 mark II straight out of my laptop (foobar). It makes the MD sound even more fun with that weighty bass punch. Alas, I have to return it to the owner. I may be getting one soon since it's on the affordable side of price.

I've listened to the MD's with a fiio e09 and Schitt lyr and it's no contest. The lyr and MD sound fantastic. It does come at a price though. I try to get the most I can afford on the first attempt. I know that I'll eventually buy the most that I'm comfortable with so why make all the stops along the way. biggrin.gif

I can say for certain my MDs spund like 80% of my LCD3s.

Love them.

Love them.

 

You are saying that the MD sounds 80% as good as the lcd3? blink.gif

Can anyone comment on how these isolate outside noise in comparison to the DT770?

post #1933 of 6388

Very similar isolation b/w the two. I'd say that the MD isolates a touch better. 

post #1934 of 6388

Five days after, a quick update:

I confirm my first impression: these are really great headphones.

Very balanced sound, in my opinion there is no need  to talk about bass. mids or highs.

Music flows effortlessly and very enjoyable, at low or high listening level.

I did not expect such an impressive soundstage, and not only in relation to a closed headphone.

I find that MD leaks not a little: no problem for me, but the ones looking for a great level of isolation better look elsewhere.

Indeed I am very happy with my MD (dog pads + comfort strap). Just to give a reference: for now I'm not able to decide whether I prefer Mad Dogs or my beloved Rudistor Chroma.

post #1935 of 6388

I'm real eager to hear the Dog Pads, Dan has had mine for a while now but I'm so busy and never get around to shipping my MD's to him :( maybe I'll do that Friday :)
