(btw, I'm the guy who bought the MadDogs from you last weekend @ the NYC Audio Meet; the 1st one who paid by credit card ... I'll just be much cleaner shaven Saturday -hehe)


Too busy to hear it today!  Bummer...

Yep, oh well, maybe some other time.  Hope at least the meet was fruitful for you.

 

I was happy to read this in another thread, so it tells me it's not some placebo effect I'm hearing and I'm not over-blowing how well your MadDog and the Little Dot III+ mesh:

p.s. to any readers interested in picking-up a (probably lightly used) Little Dot III+, daveDerek mentioned he has a LD3+ he doesn't use and is interested in selling it.

The asus xonar essence one stock/muses sounds extremely good with the Mad Dog, just thought I should trow it in in the recommendations here of amp/dac to the Mad Dog.

Our first order of The Mad Dogs have arrived.  I'm loving it through my Wadia 121 at present.  Can't wait till the balanced version arrives.  Aside from generally loving the signature, it's great that my girlfriend can be sound asleep and my listening doesn't wake her.  I can't wait to hear it on my iFi-Micro iCAN, iDAC,Gemini Cable and so forth.

I'm loving the sound signature as well. Probably "brain burn in", as some of you guys put it, but the sound seems to have gotten smoother to my ears. The sound sig is just very pleasant to listen to.

I have just ordered these headphones from Mrspeaker's web site. I filled in all the required information. Now my money is withdrawn from my credit card, but the headphones is still in the shopping chart... And no confirmation order has been sent to me.

If your card is charged, then the order is placed. Just wait to get a confirmation email. I believe Dan is a the NY meet this weekend. Just shoot him a pm for confirmation.

Thanks for this reply. Then i Just can calm down a bit ;). I did leave a message at his site, but I just did the ordering 20 min ago.

 

All the nice replies in this thread, and the fact that the Mad Dog is closed made me choose this over Audeze and Hifiman.

I was at the NY meet yesterday with Dan. I will be reviewing the Mad Dog's  with the Woo WA7 as well. I have the headphones and starting listening this morning.  Dan is a

 

super guy as well. These headphones sound very impressive and I am looking forward to my time with them. I will post when link when the review is complete in about 4 weeks.

I am up to my nose in frustration with my eCommerce engine and am looking to move to a new platform.  Once in a while orders don't get a proper "completion" status after payment processing.  

 

I do always get the money, and your order is in the database but PayPal and my engine don't complete the transaction and I have to do it manually.  If you ever place an order but don't get a confirmation, be patient, I'll contact you within 12-24 hours with an invoice and confirmation. 


We are working on it, it's just been infrequent and hard to isolate.

Thanks for your replay Mrspeakers. I understand your frustration about the ordering issue. When I now logged in on your website I can see you have handled my order. Thank you :).

Pulled the trigger and ordered some Mad Dogs today!  Definitely my first jump back in full-sized phones after being done with the IEM scene (XBA-40 filled it for me). Looking forward to what these baby's can do, and happy to support a fellow native San DieganL3000.gif

I found this in the forum: 

 

I have always thought about this, and some one finally confirm this.

I used an existing cable I had laying around in the parts box, made from Canare L-4E5C.  It already had the right angle Neutrik on one end and I added a Switchcraft plug at the other end.

 

Using a medium file I knocked down a bit all around, paying attention to angle the file toward the plug but being careful not to kick or score it.  Then I worked it all around with 1/4" strips of 150 grit sandpaper, "shoeshine" style, until it fit the jack easily yet firmly.

 

It's important that you do the trimming of the plug after you have constructed the cable.  I'll give it a coat of black paint as the filing/sanding knocks off the original black finish.

 

Now to put together some nicer cables...

Interesting stuff with the cable. I'd prefer something like the vmoda...just a bit longer and with a full sized plug on the amp end.
