^ Thanks much, I'm so glad to finally read a comparison. I mean, I figured it would be palpable upgrade, but it's nice to read some confirmation ;] My reasons for wanting the iCAN are identical to yours, so I'm quite excited to make the purchase soon.

You should not be disappointed. I haven't done any A/B comparing but I can say I am enjoying my Mad Dogs much more with the iCAN.

Update on iCAN exchange program.  iFI has contacted my dealer and now the exchange price is back to $50 plus shipping.  They were very responsive.  Thank you, iFI.

Heard the Mad Dogs at a friends. Nice. So I picked up two pairs of the T-50RP from Amazon US on my last trip to the New York office (and a new Asus Laptop - bye bye Lenovo Thinkpad), including Shure earpads and other widgets. One pair is for Gazza who helped customing them, for now very little work done, just pads and tape over the ports. More to come, when we find time/will.

Very chuffed, not quite a match for my Micro Seiki Electrostatic Headphones in mids and highs yet (or for the HiFiman HE-500, HE-6 or the Sennie HD-800) but very enjoyable and for the money silly good.

I will hear soon what they can do with better mods. Gazza showed me an amazing thread here with 10,000 mods, all with measurements and detailed how to.

But no matter if you own Mad Dogs or originals, upgrade the cable! The original does not sound even as good as the free one that came with my Audio Technica Headphones,never mind my others.

And yes, I'm driving my T50RP "Taped up and Padd(el)ed" with an iCan, Original without those gain switches. 

I now give the T50's about equal time with the Micro Seikei. The Micro's are still a dream on acoustic music, but the T50 tape/pads modded (aka not so mad dogs danglies) are great on electronic/electric music.

I just posted about a new battery I am using with the iCAN. It cleans up and smooths out the sound:

I am really loving this iCAN and its EQ boosts....

Ok, I must be blind. Where is the power switch on this thing? It doesn't turn off when I turn the knob all the way down... I keep having to unplug it to turn it off.

 

Disregard... did my research

Anyone able to comment on how well the ican (and the idac if it helps) pairs with the HE-500? Debating between this amp and the audio gd nfb 11.32.

I assumed that it was meant to be left plugged in and always on. Is there a switch I don't know of?

Nope, no switch. You just pull the plug on the back of the amp when you want to shut it down. Not sure why they did not include a switch.

Keep us posted.

So what is it? Just a boring tube buffer? Enquiring minds want to know!
