then go ahead and buy it. i never insinuated that YOU shouldn't. i just find it foolish that a company who's entire line of headphones is drastically different in price would come out with a DAC/amp that's twice the cost of any of their headphones.

V-MODA also sells a $600 shirt that doesn't play ANY music at all! What the hell is this company thinking?

At least it's portable.

They're thinking about the $590 profit on the shirt to finance  headphone and Vamp R&D :wink_face:

Can anyone confirm if the Vamp/Verza can properly drive the Mr. Speaker's Alpha Dog?  After hearing these at the Philly headphone meet, I can say with confidence they will be my next headphone purchase assuming this is the case.  If anyone is wondering why I didn't just try them with my Vamp and Verza at the meet, it was because I couldn't find a 1/4" to 1/8" adapter there! :angry_face: 

 

I learned a hard lesson and just purchased one from Audeze ($20) for future meets.  The Alpha Dog made the M-100 sound muddy by comparision.  Just in time for Halloween I am transforming from a basshead to an audiophile, h-e-l-p m-e......AAAAHHHHHHH........

Is it just me, or are these NEVER around when you need them!!  I have at least 20 of the opposite adapter and 2 of this one.  I lose them all the time!

Should keep'em in your nifty M-100 case! I got my first 1/4 to 1/8 adapter last month. It came with the Fidelio X1. Will put the adapter with my M-100 case when I get home since the X1 never goes out.

the case v-moda gives you with your cans is super convenient

That impressive eh Craigster?  I don't know why but I'm shopping for my next HP too.  The Verza made a huge difference in my listening.  Now I can't listen to anything that's not FLAC/ALAC through a Verza with my Fidelio X1 or M-100.  Not sure if I want to go IEM or not, Mr. Speakers or the latest gen of Fostex HPs.  IT'S SO OVERWHELMING!!!!!  This head-fi thing is out of control!!

I hear you.  I am limited to 256K Apple Plus files since my music taste is eclectic and I want as much as possible on my Iphone.  The Alpha Dog gives Audeze a run for their money.  The mids are astounding and the entire range is well represented.

 

I am as fixated now on the Alpha Dog as I was with the M-100.  When I want to listen to vocals/acoustic guitar instead of EDM and pop, it is great to have a superior option from M-100 and Ultrasone Signature DJ with the Alpha Dog.

Uh oh...  I think my Verza just crapped out on me.  When I connect it to my 6th gen Nano the VAMP toggle blinks a couple times and then goes dead.  I've tried the iAMP and USB DAC mode and I've also restored my Nano to factory settings and have tried switching cables but with the same outcome; blink blink dead.  It still works with my Macbook Pro though.  

 

Anyone got any ideas on how to troubleshoot this or is it going to have to go back to V-Moda?  Thanks!

I don't have an answer, but my experience with these GoDAP-made amps is that they are unreliable.  I was at a headphone meet and someone with an Iphone 4S wanted to try Versa, but couldn't get it to stay connected.  Fortunately, it still works with my Iphone.

Just reset the VERZA, or it wasn't charging.  Get a Trox 6 and open it up to check the battery connection, or get a volt meter and test the battery.

I never have any major issues with all of my V-MODA / VC stuff...
