Do you consider the mids to be more neutral? Or is there more of a V-shaped frequency w/ 3.2?
I may be losing my mind but I think I'm liking the 3.0 these better than my beloved HD600. Probably just infatuation and all...but the HD600 is sounding so thin in comparison..
I think that the 3.2 is the 3.0 done correctly. The Alpha Pads were a significant improvement over previous pads for the Fostex phones, but they change the sound in ways that needed further adjustment, hence the changes in 3.2. This is one reason that Dan offers the $30 upgrade from 3.0 to 3.2 (and even does it for free at meets and shows).
If you have 3.0, I recommend either having the 3.2 upgrade done OR waiting until the end of September when the program will start to upgrade Mad Dogs to Alpha Dogs for $300.
