This is the reason why I'm torn between MD 3.2 or AD as an upgrade for my current 3.0 (if I don't sell them before I move, that is)...

 

I can well end up having both... tongue.gif

Geez I just plugged my newly acquired Mad Dogs into my desktop amp after a day with it on my portable. The sound opens up so much more. I can't believe these are closed cans.

I know myself and others have said it countless times...the T50RP is not a particularly easy headphone to drive, especially if you're looking to maximize its performance. And they can indeed sound surprisingly open for closed cans.

I know people have said it before but it was only words until now. It seems my HE500s are easier to drive. Now it's off to find a portable amp that can drive these. Anyone know a portable amp that's not too dear (about $300) that can do the mad dogs justice?

Try the iBasso PB2, plenty of power and good synergy with the MadDogs plus rollable too.

The HE-500 and MDs have pretty much the same power requirement.

The thing is, the MDs sound closed in and congested when they are under-powered, the 500s never will because they are more airy by nature (and open).

 

Throw in a good amount of (quality) power and both will open up a good notch smily_headphones1.gif.

Looks like a good suggestion but my Mad Dogs are SE, wouldn't it be a waste buying an balanced amp?

They are single ended too.

Yeah I just read the review against the SR71B, pretty convincing and more than enough juice to drive my planars. Thanks for the tip

Does anyone know if there is a specific name for the curved 3.5mm jack that comes with the Mad Dogs. I'm looking to find a cable for portable use and I just can't find any with the same type of curved end that fits snugly into the jack. Right angled cables don't work by the way as they're too short and don't insert all the way in due to the cup getting in the way.

 

I'd be looking for a cheap cable that is about 1m in length.

I'm also interested in getting one. The supplied cables are way too long

The Vmoda cable works, but it is longer too.
post #1318 of 3191

Im pretty sure it's the V-Moda cable. (if that's what you're talking about)

post #1319 of 3191
Anything shorter than the vmoda cable?

Hi all.  FYI I will be on vacation Aug 22-Sept 3 and not available.  Gus from MrSpeakers will be holding down the Head-Fi fort and answering email to info@mrspeakers.com.  We'll be open and shipping while I'm out.
