All that mountain air does that to you.
If I remember correctly, he lives in a mountainous region and the thinner air tends to deprive your brain of oxygen thus the rambling.

"If you've ever played a system loud enough to get slightly noxious -- not because your ears clipped but because the pressure build-up in the room made you feel like swimming through molasses -- you're already keyed in to what the resonators address."

 

Man, I've read some seriously ridiculous sh** on head-fi and other audio sites through the years, but this "review" may very well take the cake.

Oh you missed the endorsement--------

 

Ex-NSA scientists like Caelin Gabriel meanwhile enjoy the technology and its benefits quietly.  

 

I guess it works best when the sound is off.

Essentially it boils down to the d7k having better wood cups vs. the th-600's metal cups and the th-600 having the beefier driver vs. the d7k driver. Other than that they are same headphone design made by the same company, fostex. I fall into the beefier driver camp.

Reread the review of 6moons with more time and read carefully this time. Sorry had no time in the morning because I had to go shopping.

 

This time I want to point out some of things that I like about the review and they are clear things that Mad Dog can compare to other high-end headphones in the markets such as LCD-2, AKG K701, Hifiman He-500, HD800, T1,...

 

With LCD-2 the reviewer stated that Mad Dog could be a little or younger brother of LCD-2. Mad Dog seems to drier and do not have the famouse LCD-2 bass texture but they are close together.

 

With K702, of course K are Q70x are the monster of detail and soundstage within $300 so Mad Dog does not have the chance to win in this category but overall Mad Dog gives a better conform and better long listening.

 

With Hifiman HE-500, Mad Dog seems to be smoother than.

 

With HD800, surely HD800 looks like a sky or a cloud on the high and look down to Mad Dog. HD800 wins by sound-stage, position in music especially when hear instruments, details. However the Mad Dog seems to catch everything or most of things in the record but can not push these things to the higher texture level like HD800. Other thing would like to mention is the position of HD800 is absolutely better than Mad Dog. This is why I believe Mad Dog is laid-back.

 

To sum up, the Mad Dog is very worthy with its name and value and better with mid-end amplifier such as few hundreds bucks. That is what I read and understood from the review. Lol. Nice work, Mr Dan or MrSpeaker.

 

PS: With poor English and lazy guy like me. I usually need more time to read and understand with the high-end review such as 6moons. And when it happens, of course that review must used a lot of high level vocabularies and implying.

I sent this to MattTCG to test out the bass on the MDs, but I thought I'd share the list for some of you to try. Some trap, chillstep, and some dub to test. Youtube is your friend, and some of these tracks are free remixes, with download links.

The first track lives in bass, particularly.

Koloah - 99bpm

Emika - Professional Loving

91KIDZ - Juriz Ira Klat (this track is pretty is HEAVY)

Adventure Club - Retro City (LOUDPVCK Remix)

Break Science & Micahel Menert - Electric Touch

CRNKN & Protohype - Boom

ETC!ETC! X Brillz - Callisto

Dynastic Electric - Eyes Wide Open (Demure Remix)

Flosstradamus - ITH (ft. Tuneboy & DJ Issac)

Imogen Heap - Just For Now (OZZIE x Hucci Remix)

Jay Z - Public Service Announcement (gLAdiator Remix)

Kanye West - Clique ft. Big Sean & Jay-Z (Stylust Beats Remix)

Kill Paris - The Love We Shared (2012 B-Side)

Ree$e - Molly (LOUDPVCK Remix)

Trinidad James - All Gold Everything (Protohype & DJ Carnage Festival Dub Remix)

This is my personal fave, which is deeeep bass, that kicks in at around 1:10. Chillstep at it's best.

Will u be doing a double entry version for balance mod?
I saw a foto from BTG with such.
post #6263 of 6388

I don't know what future revisions will hold, but Dan's balanced mod is single-entry.

Well, Lawton Audio is already doing mod packages for the TH-900, so I imagine you could always woody up the TH-600 - I wonder how that would change the sound...

What's the advantage of a double entry? I like a single entry since it's less cumbersome.

post #6266 of 6388

my ears are super sensitive to the micronanosecond difference in transcient attack betw the left n right drivers...

caused by the extra 10inches of wire on one of the cups;

or at least my mind says so..lol.

 

( or its simply not as big a headache trying to find an angle adaptor to take in the upgraded/thicker cable? jus a guess  )

======================================================

 

found an old grado 225 from the thriftshop...

omggg, it has a way of presenting oldies that no other cans of mine can. perfectperfect.

very upfront vocals without being sibilant, thru my darkvoice.

It is single entry.  I find it more comfortable, and it keeps the costs down by reducing the number of connectors.

Your ears aren't THAT great....... 10 inches would be about a full nanosecond ........

Yup, it's about one nanosecond (perhaps a little less depending upon the dielectric).

 

You could think of it like moving a speaker back and out of phase from the other channel.  The issue is that even with a 10 foot difference in cable length, it would be like moving one of those speakers a distance that's about 15 times smaller than the width of a hair (smaller than you could adjust them on purpose).

post #6270 of 6388

The electrons move about 11.784 inches per nanosecond.  Let's keep it accurate, people!!!
