You'll probably be hearing from their union rep though... something about better hours and more cookies.

Mmmmmm, thumbscrews.

Dan, Matt or Aaron, any thoughts on this?

Dan,

 

Are you going to start doing re cabling on the Mad Dogs?

Yup it does.

I had my doubts that it would be substantially better than my Pico Slim, which is one of the reasons I went for the iBasso DB2+PB2 combo.  That said, the Pico Slim drove them adequately, and it has a gain that goes from either -2 or 0 to about 6.

Actually, I emailed Dan and he said they would be shipping out tomorrow via 2-3 day shipping. By my calculations, they should get here Saturday if the USPS keeps their guarantee...

Wow, thats pretty quick. I thought they took a lot longer!

We are usually able to keep in stock these days, sometimes a part is short and there's a brief delay, but it's seldom more than a few days.  Our goal is to ship most orders next day, and orders received before 10AM Pacific go out same-day when possible.

Having ordered from Dan twice, I'll confirm that he's really quick.

I've lent out my headphones for a few try to, however Etsys is trying to put together a little loaner program.

I think it would be a great idea, if it takes off. Bring a nice sense of community (which seems to be lacking), while offering a way

for people to demo headphones that otherwise may not be feasible.

 

In the beginning the idea is demo'ing the Mad Dog, while sending in your current headphone or leaving a deposit or perhaps just by

being vetted. Still haven't worked out the details.

 

I think it would be great if this grew beyond just the MD's, my headphone inventory will hopefully be available to other's.

If things go smoothly.

 

Anyways, check the thread out, subscribe and show your interest. If you'd like. LINK

^^ Great idea. I really believe that the maddogs are unappreciated and that most of the community just doesn't know how good they are. If I were Dan, I'd be circulating a demo pair for sure to get the word out.

I know this is off topic but I've been in this thread since the beginning and need some votes on my poll. http://www.head-fi.org/t/642072/make-my-day-vote-my-poll

 

Don't worry I already own Mad Dogs tongue_smile.gif

post #2295 of 6388

Seriously considering ordering a pair of these.

My dilemma at the moment though is that I can't justify owning too many pairs of headphones, and at the moment my office/chill close headphones are Pro900s.

They're not the greatest with their piercing treble but they're good for when I feel like intense bass for genres like DnB / dub

 

I absolutely love my he400s, and it sounds like the MDs are a somewhat of a closed version of these, with maybe a tad less bass but still that unique planar sound.

 

One good thing about Pro900s for office and other use away from home is that they sound good out of portable amps/dacs like Fiio E17 / Audioengine D1, whereas it sounds like these MDs need something a bit beefier?

 

I assume my Mstage would power them OK at home, but if I wanted to use them away from home would I need to get another good desktop amp or would my E17 be OK?

I guess I could get something like a Meier Rock/Jazz if that would be a significant amp improvement (fed by e17 dac-only) ?
