I couldn't log in for a bit. Hitting return, or clicking 'login' did nothing once my ID and PW were entered. Obviously I got in now though.  cool.gif

We will offer an option for people who order to get a Mad Dog with 840 pads and ship Alpha pads at our expense, for those who don't want to wait for their headphones, and I will extend the return policy for those users, as the 840 version will be sub-optimal.

Indeed, I jJUST GOT MY INTERNET FREAKING BACK... OMG SO HAPPY

 

so new cans will be MUCh appreciated since I'll b able to review them as soon as they hit my house!

Anybody have the Purity Audio KICAS?  I'm wondering if mine would be sufficient to power the Mad Dogs properly.  I've thought about getting the Magni (due to its alleged ample power), but part of me thinks it'd be a downgrade.

Lawl, the post office delivered me cans 5 days ago... not only that but they didn't get any one at my door so they took the package TO the post office and never left me ANY kind of notice...

Go there early and you should be fine :)

Good luck, I think you'll like them a lot!

I found the specification of the Fostex T50RP over B&H as 330 gram only, how come after the modifications to Mad Dog they became so heavy.

I have the KICAS Caliente, and have heard the orginal Asgard. Suffice to say I don't think the Asgard is an upgrade over the KICAS, and probably the Magni no better.

 

Like yourself I am sceptical the KICAS can power the Mad Dog adequately, I am waiting to hear the Burson Soloist SL which may be a better match with the Mad Dog.

Hi folks! Has anyone here compared Mad Dog's to the unmodded Fostex? That would be nice to hear some impressions. I am also interested in buying this model but maybe to do modding myself.

The bigger heavier pads, leather strap, and all the cup damping add to the weight...

Think of it as "Pimp My Ride" for the T50RP headphone.

Or if there's any way to get already completed cables. I'd love to hear silver cabling on the MD's....

 

I'm currently using the V-moda cable on mine.

 

Homegrown only sells solid core stuff, unless they've changed, so I'd advise against that.

In addition to the standard/longer Fostex cable right?

 

The MDs soundstage is nowhere near as big or "airy" as the K-701 IMO(driven on the same M-stage amp).

 

BUT: that's not a bad thing per se, the K-701 have a big unatural soundstage that is barely a circle with instruments placed on it. This give a sense of space in the soundstage but I don't hear it as natural.

 

By comparison, the layering is much better on the MDs and the resulting soundstage more natural. The only cons is that, at times (= on some recording) the sound is slightly closed-in (how suprising for closed headphones :D).

You should look at another way, the way and cost to make a a t50rp sound as good as mad dog yourself. It will cost you alot of time and money to get good result and even then I bet you will struggle to even be close to the Mad Dog. Yes it cost more than a stock one and that is natural as it is a upgraded product that is far better than the stock headphone.
