"Mad Dog" by MrSpeakers, modified Fostex T50RP review - Page 214  

post #3196 of 6388

Yeah, I jammed the thing into the headphone jack. I don't think it's the cable itself (it's the v-moda cable) as the headphones render fine when connected to the line-out.

^^^ sounds like a dead E10.  Can you try it with other phones?

post #3198 of 6388

When I get home I will. Hopefully the DAC is still intact. Ugh, I've heard about the build quality issues in the E10, though I thought the updated version would've addressed them.

Ok im quite confused. If i order by mad dogs with dog pads and strap for $299 when they come back in stock, will they be coming with alpha pads? If not. Do i have to buy them seperate or will there be a full mad dog phone coming out on the market with the alpha pads on them?

I don't like Mad Dogs, oh no, I love them! (shout out to 10cc - Dreadlock Holiday)

 

These are smooth sounding and phenomenally comfortable.  I've been using a pair of Denon D5000 with angled leather pads, similar to the Alpha pads.  The Denons tend to have a bit of a V-shaped sound, which works well at very quiet listening levels, and the bass quantity seems more impactful than that of the Mad Dog's bass.  Yet, it was immediately clear to me that the MD's are more natural sounding.  Due to the better sound stage and isolation, I found myself looking around the room on several occasions as I thought I was hearing something farther away in the room, but it was just part of the music.

 

While I am not one to jam at loud levels for extended periods of time, these headphones are ideal for listening to music very loudly.  It has been stated before by others, but there seems to be no harshness or overpowering frequencies, anywhere.  When I cranked up my D5000's, sometimes the treble or vocals would become a bit too much, or the bass in some songs would drown out everything else.  Nothing happening like this with the MD's.  

 

What can I say, just smooth so far.  Very pleased.

 

I was going to use the Mad Dogs to replace my work headphones (AT M50), but now I might consider getting a second pair to use in place of my Denons at home.  

 

Thanks Dan!

So here's a mod for everybodey but dan. Take a beyer headband pad and attach to the topside of the leather comfort strap not the bottom. Will make the headphones feel light and airy and ubercomfy, supercheap as well. Dan just punished me for not returning his headphones to him within my fifteen day alloted time so if I see a premium leatther comfort strap out I'll be seenin ya in court dan. I also found your arguments with your $1400 headphone and the schiit asgard 2 example to be extremly smug an disrespectful. Like I've never had to return stuff or ask for an upgrade. 98% of the times whether it was walmart or joe schmo's headphone shop if I wasn't happy wit somthin it was taken care of. Sorry I gota be the jerk to treat you this lesson but the customer is always right even when they're wrong. You might be the world's best headphone builder right now but you could really use a seminar on how to take care of your customers.

Man I have no idea what this guy is even saying ... how about this, we'll get Dan to one of those seminars ... which he obviously doesn't need ... if you go back to school. Just start back at the beginning, preferably.

How were you able to decipher that jargon?

Please don't remind me. As a metalhead, the smoothness of response makes blasting my death metal waaaay too tempting. beyersmile.png

Send a message to Leather CPR about their product and here is the reply that I received:

 

Thank you for your email!  Leather CPR is the only leather cleaner and
conditioner on the market that has been dermatologist tested, and safe when
used on leather items that come in contact with skin.

As far as using it on earphones, that's a first for us.  I really depends on
how sensitive your skin is.  If you have highly sensitive skin, we would not
suggest using it. 

Please let us know if you have any other questions.

Best regards,
CPR Cleaning Product


-----Original Message-----

I was interested in using your Leather CPR to care for some Lamb Leather ear
pads on a higher-end pair of headphones.

Is there any information available concerning the use of the product on
something that will be in contact with the skin for prolonged periods?

 

---------------------------

 

Basically the recommendation I gave. Seeing as their probably aren't many other products that even claim to have done testing, this might not be a bad way to go.

While I don't really understand or agree with the rest of antimatter's post, I am curious about trying out the headband mod he mentioned. The Mad Dogs have been really comfortable so far for, except clamping force a bit, but if this would add even more comfort I'm willing to try it. 

Has anyone done this the way he is mentioning?
