I don't think those are as wide as the O2 though...

Battery pack to supply constant 16V swing to the PB2 and the DB2 for my laptop/computer and the Sony was my DAP

Just got this nifty stand for my Mad Dogs on mp4nation: pretty nice for a $15 sale. They actually have a picture of the fostexes on them, so you already know what it'd look like!

Nice, but I wish it didn't have brainwavz plastered all over it
post #2873 of 6388

Yeah, that's true, but it isn't too much of a big deal for me since I own a pair of brainwavz anyway. :P (IEMs, though...)

If only the "brainwavz" part was just a sticker...

Mr. Speakers, 

 

Any technical reason the mad dogs make the ground loop buzzing/humming I am getting with my magni and bluray player and cable box so much louder/noticeable than with my D2000's?

 

Buzz/hum is almost inaudible with my D2000's when running RCA cables from cable box to magni, but with MD's the buzz is very loud is constant and noticeable even with volume cranked.  Should I actually take this as a good thing?  Shows the MD's are superior phones with more accurate and detailed reproduction?  Any tips on eliminating the loop other than a ground loop isolator I just ordered?  I've tried all combinations of plugging the magni and my sources into AC outlets and then power strips etc etc..

^^ It seems that you have an electrical problem with the amp/dac, as it is reproduced with both headphones even if to varying degrees. It could be a pure electrical issue that is also unrelated to the Schitt equipment. I'd ask Jason at Schitt what his opinion on that one.

x2.  I would look at the DAC/Amp setup first, as I don't see how the headphone can cause a ground loop.  Essentially, the headphone has a common ground, and if there is any issue with the headphone wiring it would cause one or both channels to simply not work.

Yea I do have an issue with a ground loop in my home theater setup, which happens regardless of which headphones I plug into the magni, I just didn't know why the buzz/hum is so much more pronounced with the MD compared to D2000.  I will update with how the ground loop isolator works when it comes in. $10 from amazon.

 

On a side note the MD's blow my D2000 out of the water properly powered.  Now I actually know what midbass sounds like.

Looking for a portable and was strongly considering these. They will be driven out of a O2, from which I understand, can drive them. My budget is $500 and lower, I listen to alt. rock and folk. Mad Dogs the best I can get?

It depends if you're talking about best closed can you get. If not, there's always the HD650, HE-400, and HE-500 used.

 

All of the aforementioned will sound fine out of the O2. More importantly, what are you doing about a source?
