The Neutrik 90-degree plugs are much easier to source.  With the help of a small Dremel bit, you can safely, and carefully remove enough of the plastic to make the plug properly fit.

This is exactly what I did! I used a dremel I got from work, still haven't returned it lol

I pulled the trigger for the mad dogs with dog pads,

Wish me luck, if everything goes alright I'll be getting them on 2 January.

I hope that I like them, they are going to be my first ortho.

 

One last thing, Dan have been great to deal with, always prompt to answer my questions and to help me with the shipping.

 

Thanks everybody for the help.

The MD is a wonderful hp to listen with. You won't be disappointed. Incredibly comfortable, very well balanced. One of if not the best $300 hp out there IMO.

Dan's so responsive that i assume he barely sleeps. due to timezone differences i've set him emails and received responses in minutes despite it being the early hours in the USA

Oh by the way Dan – thanks for the MD’s I’m 100% satisfied.

 I just send an email to him, an it's 1h20 AM where I live, and he simply answered right away. I sent the email less than 1h ago.

 I've never seen this kind of costumer service!

It was about 7 pm his time. I think he's got a smart phone that steals his sleep!

Any news about Oyaide plug (straight or right angle)? Does it fit into the cup with no need of using a cutter?

 

I've no luck meeting with my friend who offers DIY cable making service yet. He has the Oyaide plug. Sorry.

Found the Mad Dog's, remembered I needed to send them in for repair. Might as well upgrade them too!

 

When the money gets here (school takes priority - at least at end/beginning of a semester) I'll be doing that and posting my own opinions on comfort with the Dog Pads vs. the old Shure pads.

I'll reiterate - I really, really like the Mad Dog signature, and that is coming from a few bass heavy cans - the Denons and the Ultrasone Pro 750 and HFI 780 (Note - it took two pairs for me to determine I am not an Ultrasone fan).

I tried same song, with my Beyer dt990 pro 250ohm (despite being rather bass heavy) driven off by my iPod classic+fiio e17 and it doesn't even skull rattle... and I'm having no eq

I wondered if someone could post visit picture tutorial of reseating the headphone for better clamp.

 

thanks...
