Some outdoor photos from my mostly meh p&s (sorry for the wait, this message board software is different from what I'm used to )
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?
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.
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!
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...
It is just the "name" given to a more stealthy, blacked out Mrspeakers Mad Dog headphones. The new plain black stickers are stuck up instead of the Mad Dog stickers is all. Looks great I might add.
I see, thank's for answering my question. You could perhaps do a test to see how the stickers would hold up in regular envelopes, maybe even padded for extra space so you put a cardboard insert in to prevent flexing? I imagine something like that would end up cheaper making it much more appealing to people outside the US
I wanted to ask a question to any of the taller people out there, or people with big heads. I want to get this headphone but would like to know what the fit is for people with large ears/heads. I have a problem with my ear lobes and top parts of my ears hurting after a very short listening session with most headphones like the ATH-M50. The only headphone that I've ever found comfortable is the Sony MDR-XB700 but the sound isn't that good on it.
I'm 6'4" if that helps at all.
