"Mad Dog" by MrSpeakers, modified Fostex T50RP review - Page 380  

post #5686 of 6388

The XM6 did ok with the HE500's and Mad Dogs at lower volumes IMHO.

 

The XM6 just broke up at medium-high volume and packed it in on the HE500's

 

Bit off topic now... The Mad Dogs ran well through my old O2 I'd recommend it

I've decided they're not for me.  They'll be up in the F/S section soon.  The journey continues....

Yeah, the XM6 is surprisingly powerful.

Just return them as you have a 15 day trial period being that you're in the US.

Why don't you just return it?

Based on his customer service and participation, I've got a lot of respect for Dan and I don't want to screw him over like that.  I'd rather take a loss than have him do so.

Nice and a nice deal for someone.  Saw your post - they look as new.

I was a bit skeptical of the Leckerton and decided to go for the D6 based on the power output and some comments from Hiflight (the topkit guy).  I ran across a nice deal on an iBasso PB2/DB2 combo and ended up getting that.  It drives the Mad Dogs quite well.  I would expect the D6 to do the same.  If memory serves (and it may not at this point) the Leckerton is 175 mW/channel, the D6 is like 500 mW per channel.  That said, the Leckerton does get a lot of love around here...

I've read good things about the Leckerton too on here, but forgot about it. Price point is similar so it'll come to one of the two. Can Anybody tell me the differences between the op-amps they offer?

Carry on gents........................

 

I hate to go off-topic, this this just made my day. (And it's past midnight here! biggrin.gif) Anything similar for Pandora's app?

There is not. The gent who developed the Equalizer app has been trying to work with Pandora but they don't seem to think they need the support or something. I tried by contacting the Pandora customer service team via email as I'm a Pandora One member, hoping they would consider it to no avail yet. It surely could use the tool. Never know.

Ah, well. We can hope, can't we?

I have some customers who own dozens of phones, and others who worked overtime and saved for months to buy these headphones, so I take my obligation to deliver value very seriously. The price is low compared to summit gear, but that doesn't mean this isn't an important investment for a lot of people.  Thus I want to make this a special, lasting product, not a launch point to upsell.

 

Is our approach unique?  I think so.  Perfect?  Doubt it.  I can't solve global shipping costs, yet, so it's more of a burden for overseas customers.  But I get this, and hopefully we'll address it in the EU, then other locations over time.  Patience will be appreciated!

 

In the meantime, anyone with other ideas is always welcome to send me a PM.  I have no monopoly on good ideas, that's for sure.  

 

And yes, I promise the frequency of updates will decrease; the pads are not going to change, and they are the main driver for other changes (plus I have the new balanced phones to get out the door!).

Thanks Dan, I hope with that the complaiants will cease lol [ofc they won't] 

 

Non the less, hopefully I'll be getting another job here soon and in a better position to save up for these again!
