"Mad Dog" by MrSpeakers, modified Fostex T50RP review - Page 308  

post #4606 of 6388

Just received my MDs today and loving them so far.  Can't wait to break them in and open them up (and for my Schiit m/m to arrive to really push them some).  I ordered just before the "Darth" stickers were available, otherwise I would have asked Dan to slap them on there for me.  I looked for it, but couldn't find any video showing how to apply the stickers.  Is the video available yet?  I don't want to order them until I'm sure I can apply them without messing up my shiny new phones!  Thanks!

Got my Vader dogs in today, really excellent quality and finish. The blackout stickers are really the perfect look for this phone, they blend right in and you can only tell they're there if you're looking for them. I took some photos, but its not letting me upload them. Is there a minimum post count for picture posting?

There is a minimum post count or days waited before you can do certain things on these forums, in addition to being able to edit your profile. Something like 10-15 posts or something like that before you can do that.

Yeah, you'll have some restrictions at first.  I'd suggest just hosting the images on a site like minus.

Nice setup you got there. All black errrrthang.

 

Do you use low or high gain with that O2?  Does it clip or distort at all on high again with the Mad Dogs?

post #4614 of 6388

With the O2, any input with 2 Vrms or greater would likely clip with the high gain setting.  The high gain setting is supposed to be for a portable DAP, like an iPod.  I believe your DAC is 2 Vrms.

 

I've actually cut resistors on the high gain setting to make my O2 2.5x or no gain at all.  Default is 2.5x for low and 6x for high.

With the ODAC low gain is plenty for everything I've listened to, I also only needed low gain with my Beyer DT990 600 ohms, but the Mad Dogs reach the same volume a couple of "hours" earlier on the knob. With a quick blast of volume at max and high gain with full volume material I don't hear any distortion, and it is (way too) LOUD. I suspect I'll only need high gain for portables, and then only when I really need to bump. It's a killer combo.

Kinda forgot... I'll try to post a video tomorrow.  It's super easy, except for the left side, where using a lighter (really) is the only way to get the word "Lock" to not look like a blister...

So quick question, why does it cost so much to ship the vader stickers to Canada? 28$ for shipping alone is a bit nuts

post #4618 of 6388

It's a limitation of the USPS online interface to our systems, there's no option for First Class mail to overseas.  I'll look to see what options exist.
