It looks like it's a standard 2V source.  It's got up to twice the output of the iPod.

So it looks my only option is to swap out the amp, bummer the Mad Dogs sound killer out of the D6 when I'm not using the iPod haha!

It almost sounds like a fuller, closed-back DT880, though not bright. Though it's been a very long time since I heard the 880s, so take that with a grain of salt.

Does the new revision still sound congested though? That's my main issue with the 3.0 MD's.

I wish Dan posted FQ graph comparing 3.0 with the latest 3.2 revision.

Good god. This thing is kicking ass. DAT BASS

I honestly want it if JUST for that alone. It's SOOOOOOOO good.

 

How do the new Mad Dogs compare to the older Denon DX000 series and HE-400 in deep sub-bass frequencies below 50 Hz? Is it enough to satisfy a bass head?

 

How about soundstage, imaging, and instrument separation?

It look like it sparks up the whole bass performance again.

Hi I've been reading about this particular headset being able to isolate sound particularly well especially aboard passenger planes... As I am a frequent traveler mostly on military aircraft, would it still be able to isolate noise fairly well?

Pretty decent isolation, pretty durable, pretty big physically.  I might consider them for flying (all commercial for me), but would likely choose my custom iem's instead for convenience and even better isolation.  I'll let more experienced travelers weigh in as well.  I travel a couple times a year give or take.  Always the iems, likely never the Mad Dogs, just based on the physical size, weight, etc.

It will isolate quite well but I wouldn't call it the best portable. Mostly a home hp for me. Maybe out on the porch.

I assume you are talking fixed wing.

 

Given the conspicuous lack of noise insulation on most mil transports that would be a challenge even for an iem.

Have a refurb special for one unit for deal-watchers... 

post #6027 of 6388
+1 on the refurbs. I was lucky to pick one up and you'd never know it wasn't brand new. Great deal. Snap it up.
post #6028 of 6388

Thanks!  This one actually is new, it was just an old "gold riser" stock unit we somehow missed so it'd been in inventory for a long time.

yeah fixed wing. KC-135R to be exact(CFM 56 engines). I've actually used some "IEMs" by a company called AirBuds that worked somewhat well in the jet, however I haven't found any fullsize headphones that would do a decent job of protecting my hearing from the outside engine noise

What exactly are the differences between "Gold risers" and the new ones?
