"Mad Dog" by MrSpeakers, modified Fostex T50RP review - Page 230

I think I'll just call myself a satisfied customer.  Four days in, and I know for sure these are not going back.

I know, its getting worse.

Has anyone had a chance to compare the new alpha pad version with the paradox by any chance? I'm not really interested in a 'which-is-better' debate so much as I am about the 'objective' differences that can be found between them. I just listened to the mad dogs for the first time yesterday and they were really surprisingly awesome! So I'm likely to be getting a pair soon, but I'd just like to settle my curiosity about where the paradox fits in relation to this newest version...

So I'm looking into making my MDs portable. As usual, the problem is budget. Looking for best bang for the buck. I looked into amps and the C&C BH looks like it could be a good pairing. Then comes the source. Unfortunately my Galaxy S2's dac sounds terrible. I was thinking maybe a Colorfly C3. My goal is to stay at ~$200 combined price. This combo seems like it could work. 

 

Can anyone offer any incite on this combo with the MDs?

How about some alternatives?

wink_face.gif awesome Hifiguy, looking forward to your review and comparision with top headfi headphone that you own (HD800, and hope there is LCD2.2) ......

Or you should buy an additional one to do a give away L3000.gif

I decided to keep my stock T50rp for now just to compare the two.

I was able to compare the Paradox with the Mad Dogs + dog pads, but not the alpha pads. They sounded surprisingly similar, with the Paradox having more of a hump in the 80-300Hz range and the Mad Dog having more of a dip (though relatively smaller) around 40-80Hz. Both are easily "fixed" with a bit of EQ. The alpha pads mainly boost the 200Hz-5KHz range along with some other changes, but I no longer have my Paradox on hand to make direct comparisons.

I was wondering anyone that saw HiFiguys San Fran meets videos could you tell me amps/dacs Dan had running on his MadDog table.

1 part curiousity, 1part I am in the market for a new amp for the MadDogs and my DT990/600. The Maverick is a great Dac not so good an amp. I know I saw a Modi/Magni there, but there were others.

 

My budget is around 600. I am not tube nor SS shy.(Though tube rolling does frighten me, the addiction of it.) Right now the A-GD SA-31 and ALO Pan Am are my top choices. I will need at least two analog inputs. I would sort of like it to not get blazing Schiit hot. If it does it does though. Black is preferred color choice. Again sound comes first though

 

I have read so much info that my brain is sort of melting. I am reaching out to you kind people.

Hey there, 

 

Out of one rig MrSpeakers had the Lyr/Bifrost combo. The middle was the Magni/Modi stack and I believe the far left was out of a Burson (I'm not sure which one, I didn't get a chance to listen to that one :/ ) 

post #3448 of 6388

Just a question (think I have read about this somewhere before but can't remember where), do the Mad Dog Alpha's cancel out background noise well?

My DT770's are fairly good at it, would the Mad Dog's be worse or better compared to those?

 

Sorry if this is a common question but if they are considerably more isolating than the Beyers I am 99% sure I will get a pair. :)

post #3449 of 6388

The Burson was a great match.  

post #3450 of 6388

I think it depends on how loud you play your music. I'm sure someone else with the mad dogs can better answer this question. From my own experience, they blocked out a lot of noise. I was auditioning them while looking at MrSpeakers speak to another head-fier next to me. All I could hear was Stevie Wonder's Isn't she lovely L3000.gif
