And I don't think that a wooden cup would make the Mad Dog any more neutral than it is.

The Thunderpants is also poorer quality and the manufacturer Gary is flaky.

 

Best not to give him your money.

Oh I do like ss Dacs, I will NEVER own a Tube DAC, because I want my dac to be neutral. N that is because I amp with tubes <3

 

Still, even with mah clean odac n my clear top tube Mad Dog had to much mids, and it was underpowered on my ss portable amps

 

I'm interested to know what a "Tube DAC" is. Never heard of that before.

Thanks, Kamakahah.

 

Next question.

These Mad Dogs are compared to the HD650.

One of the virtues of the HD650 are the way they handle sibilance.

How are the Mad Dogs with this?

I think they handle sibilance very well. Some tracks just are, but I find the Mad Dogs make it a lot less noticeable for me. I can't comment on how they compare to the HD650s in this regard.

MD deals with sibilance very well, to the point that it's not a worry/problem. The HD650 is darker and has more shelved treble.

I'd certainly agree with this and own both.

+1  (or is it +2?)

post #4285 of 6388

^^^ +3, except don't own the HD650, but have heard them several times.  I've had very sibilant (ultrasone HFI 780) as well.  The MD's are some of the least sibilant I've heard (D7000's and 1964 Ear quads also come to mind).

post #4286 of 6388

Yeah, the MD and hd650 both give a nice lush, smooth sibilant free presentation.

agreed, the treble was really never sibilant at all... it also laked sparkle for me.

 

Although really and truely it is a THICK neutral can, I think my issues was I don't want a closed neutral can. The dt 880 is my refrance and for on the go sound I might want to pick the color I like and go with that 

 

Still I'll miss those big sexy pads q.q

Do you have picture of those by chance? That would be pretty cool to look at.

Yeah, the MD is very good at subduing the siblance of headphones, practically none unless it is present in recording. Agree with the other poster with it lacking sparkles, some may like and some may not.

still all day the Mad Dogs had some SERIOUSLY awesome isolation! That alone makes it worth while! Good neutral sound and great isolation.
