Headstage Arrow 4G, Pico Slim (Used), FiiO E12 

 

Any of those are slim enough to be very portable. They all will work well.

And don't forget the Leckerton UHA-6S.MKII.

Very good unit as well. I did forget about the Leckerton. Actually, the Leckerton might be better because it is a USB DAC and amplifier, the value is much higher. But I have heard all of them, and I'd say the Arrow 4G, is really hard to beat at its price. Sounds much better than some portable amps I've heard that cost much more. The features are a huge plus as well. They all are great though, I would suggest doing some research and finding out which one suits your preferences the best.

You could even rename....Mid Dogs?!

Hope you get this resolved, probably just a small problem overlooked or something, then send Tyll out your best pair and watch those graphs shine! no more question's to their recognized potential.

Well, in the end how it sounds is the most vital thing, but yes.  :-)

No, I do agree! And you're right that plenty of well-regarded headphones show similar or worse imbalances on IF measurements. I just know when you double checked my pair and were awesome enough to provide measurements, my pair matched up really well below 100Hz. That's primarily why I was curious. :)

 

Very interested to see what you end up finding out about those measurements in the future...but all I know is that I'm really happy with my pair!

If anyone is looking for a hard case for these... I picked up this:

Fits well, case seems pretty durable.  Here's how they fit:

Good to know it fits. I remember asking if this would work and got ran over by the no-parade. Thanks for the pic.

Nice find, the fit looks prefect.
post #4994 of 6388

Wow.. funny I just ordered these like a couple of hours ago. I guess I know they fit now. beerchug.gif

I wouldn't recommend the E12 for Mad Dogs. E12 has a more closed in soundstage, and somewhat of a treble roll-off.

 

When I plugged the Mad Dogs into E12 at the recent SF Bay Area meet, the sound was extremely congested and warm. It just destroys whatever good point the Mad Dogs has.
