"Mad Dog" by MrSpeakers, modified Fostex T50RP review - Page 349  

post #5221 of 6388

^^ I'm sorry but your approach is just plain odd. I have daughter with autism and of course I'm always happy to see people get behind the cause. But why take something like a pair of custom modded to hp's to use at an auction? No one will likely no what they are. It wouldn't be like selling a pair of beats that has brand recognition and some parent might bid on them for their kids birthday. And then why try to mod them again with stickers and a new name? Just odd...no offense meant. 

 

If you really are trying to help the cause of autism thank you for your efforts and support to help the cause.

Mad dog, I can't lie I would like to see partydogs, an overweight yellow lab rollin over some guys done cig. butt and the guy has two pitchers of beer in his handsbeerchug.gif. This was just a lil headphone art project I've been working on hoping to raise money for autism speaks. Maybe it was the way I was raised but I always thought imitation is the highest form of flattery. If you thought I was steppin on mr.speakers toes I promise you it wasn't intentional. I was hoping to finish them up and send them off to dan for testing and auctioning. I think him selling would probably fetch the most money since he has much more street cred. I know this is asking allot but I was hoping maybe he would throw in a fr graph or custom case for a good cause. If this bothers you guys then I will def. stop and again I apologize.

My perspective had everything to do with owning such a product and not knowing anything about it.

 

That's just ignorance. Frankly, it's just annoying, personally.

 

Furthermore, I'm all for the cause, but again, I'd simply wonder why you're trying to pass off a already modified can. Seems sloppy as hell.

I'm sorry you find my love of art and headphones so odd. I will stop working on them and will not talk about them again. I do think head-fi has pretty deep pockets though.

I do appreciate the cause and maybe there are other ways to help. PM me.

You dont see people calling LCD2 with vegan pads VLCD2 or whatever.

Denons D7000 with J$ pads aren't J7000. LA7000 is different because it's fully modded.

A swapping of pads alone doesn't justify a name change.

 

 

Hmmm, I wonder?

The Annie isnt just a pad swap. Headband and aesthetics are different. If anything the Q701 shouldve been called K702 Quincy Edition or something.

Thought there was already a 702.

 

I may disagree with the idea of a pad swap not deserving of a new name. Proper pads can make the phone into a completely new device, changing the sound signature completely. While it is not en vogue to acknowledge this currently it is in fact a truth. What real difference is there between stuffing a few ounces of felt behind a driver as opposed to a few ounces of foam and velour or leather on the exterior?

 

As I mused before.  I wonder......?

I figured out why everyone loves their new Mad Dogs so much .. and it's not the sound ... they have a NEW CAR SMELL!  And who doesn't love a new car?!  We're trained over decades to love it after all . ;^D

 

Have you ever smelled a headphone?  No... certainly, No ... I haven't either.  But I picked a set up yesterday @ the NYC Audio Show and more than a few times, on the bus ride home & at home with them I thought I smelled "new car".  Of course it's the leather pads, and I put it to my nose just to get a good whiff.  But it's not only a 'leather' I got, I smelled "new car" signature in there.  ;)  Too bad the smell is subsiding.  I bought a new car in 1999 and then just in 2008, so I'm not due for another new car for a 1/2 decade.  -haha

 

Aside from the sound that endless others have written about much better than I can, another thing I appreciate about them is the dampening.  I'd been buying closed headphone after closed headphone lately trying to find something that I could crank in close proximity to my wife, and her not hear it.  But it's become a joke here that every one I get seems louder to anyone around me than the next.  But w/these MadDogs there's finally hardly any sound bleeding out of them to the environment around me (unless I "go to 11").  Hurray.  Putting your finger on the housing explains why quickly.  With all the dampening added by Sir Speaker, there's hardly any vibration making it to and thru the housing. 

 

Thank You Mr. Speaker!

Tho, you don't have to only wonder.  You can do it to a T50RP of your own.  And I've seen a T50RP mod thread on here where the author goes thru a significant number of permutations of differing pads, putty amount & acoustic fill amount and published the objective measured effect on frequency response and subjective opinion of those factors that significantly affect 'the sound' that wont' show-up in just a frequency response graph.

Hi there,

Is the bass on these cans quite good?
I like bass, especially my sub bass, but I don't want muddy bass at the expense of the highs and mids.

Thanks

Yes. See a few pages back for a discussion on this (look for posts involving Dryvadeum)

The bass on the MD's is clean and hits hard when the track calls for it. There's a little bit of subbass rumble but not to the extent of the Denon's or anything. I'm satisfied by their bass and I like hard hitting bass.
