I like to know if you decides to try it.

Much to my surprise, yes.  But I'm not including the new cable with the Mad Dog, too pricey.  If there's interest I may have it as an option in the future....

Thanks guys, and yes, there is much that is really excellent in Tyll's measurements, and yes the mids. highs and distortion have a different profile than this (again, I don't doubt Tyll's work here, this is probably on me).

 

There is at least 4-5 more dB above 1K than is shown there.  For those of you in the New York area, swing by the New York Audio show or the Bablyon meet the next weekend and have a listen, including the balanced phones.  I would be surprised if anyone will leave saying they are lifeless or shelved in the mids.  To me, the mids are the greatest strength of this phone, and what I'm most proud of.

Of that I can completely agree. The mids are what makes the MD worth getting.

I don't really understand if, for $350, the balanced cable is included or just the mod for 4-pin XLR plug (and then add our own custom cable)?

Tha balanced includes the 4 pin XLR cable, the pre-order price is $349.  Adaptors for 1/4", 3.5mm, RSA's HiRose connector, dual XLR, speaker taps, etc are not included.  We may add them if there's demand, or just get them from a source like Moon or BTG.

You should definitely be proud of what you achieved with the mids, truly awesome.

That's excellent then!

How much will they be balanced without the special pricing? $400?

Dan, in regards to the channel imbalances that showed up on Tyll's measurements (especially below 100Hz, but not exclusively), do you think that is primarily due to the slight internal differences in each cup (cable jack) or perhaps related to that specific pair Tyll measured? I mean, it doesn't seem out of scope compared to many other headphones around...just curious!

Allnheadphones have imbalances. It can be anything from changes in driver mass to how the pads compress and seal, but you would be very unlikely to hear this small a bass variance. Mids would be more audible. In fact if you compare to most headphones that looks really, really good.

I got my Mad Dogs Alpha Pads in the mail a few days ago and WOW! what a difference from my old pair of Sennheiser HD448  the only problem is my old Creative Zen Vison M broke for good now so I have looked and I think I'm sold on the Fiio X3 that's coming out in june/july. but for now what would be a good portable DAC to use with my Samsung Galaxy S3? I listen too rock, country and pop a lot but do listen to most types of music as well. any suggestions would be great thanks

What is your budget? You should look into a FiiO E12, or if you can't stretch it, try the C&C BH. It is a good amp that has been said to drive the Mad Dogs sufficiently.

The Mad Dog makes music very engaging and fun. It is the headphone I like the most of the ones I have owned. Much of it is in the highs it makes all music I listen to extremmely smooth and clear sounding.
