post #2596 of 2932

Why did the price jump up to $450? I thought when the sale ends it will be only $379.

The price is the same, we simply reconfigured our store so the cable price is included and you select your cable. It was very confusing to people to have to order a cable, and to have to sort through all the options.

glad I jumped on it. I will make plans to upgrade to the AD as soon as I find out something on an option

Anyone know an online store in europe where I can get a new cable for my Mad Dogs? Preferably with a 3.5mm plug.

 

Cheers!

For weeks now I've been trying to pick out what might be my last pair of closed headphones.  The Mad Dog at $299 looks really intriguing to me.  One question though-  how well do they seal out external noise?

 

I like to play atmospheric first person games like Stalker, Skyrim, and Bioshock Infinite, but the fans on my gaming PC are a bit loud. 

 

I have some Shure SRH840s, and to me they seal out noise quite well.  So if the Mad Dogs quiet things down to that level, I'll be happy.

You can order a V-Moda Audio Only cable from the V-Moda website, they ship to Europe. The shipping costs are reasonable.

Thanks.  Sealing noise out matters to me, letting some noise leak isn't a factor at all.  So it sounds like these should work for me.

Are there graphs that show the frequency response difference between the t50rp and mad dogs?

 

I just can't get over that t50rp are only $100 cans modded to be over $300. Someone please explain to me. I want the MDP but is it worth the full $450 or should I pay more and get HE-500s or less and get the HE-400s.

For your information MDP only have rubber headband labeled Fostex and the driver from T50RP all other parts such as comfort strap, earpads called Dog pads, cups where drivers resides and tunning are Dan's creations for which he many hundreds hours of trials and errors plus investment in 3D printing for the cups same ones as in AD. You also have 14 days to try them and can return them if you don't like but i would recommend you also order dog treats tunning kit and try additional tunning before you give up

The HE-400 and HE-500 are obsolete and being replaced by the HE-400i and HE-560 (I have not heard the latter two).

 

The HE-400 are not as good as any of the current production Mad Dog models .

 

The HE-500 are a different sound than the Mad Dog models.  The Alpha Dogs are better than the HE-500 in some aspects.

 

The HE's are open (no isolation), the Dogs are closed (very good isolation).

 

A lot of it is a matter of personal taste, and preferred music.

 

As of 2014, graphs are helpful in designing audio gear, but still cannot yet predict sound quality. Maybe some day...

That's because the drivers are only 1/2 the story. The housing, the material, etc. can change signature quite a bit. In fact, even just changing the pads could change the signature considerably.

No offense to anyone but if it were me I would pick the he500 over all of these. There is nothing like open sound. Even if the AD had things better about it the open sound of the he500 along with its balance and wonderful mids is very much worth the little price over the MD Pro. I like the MD pro a lot. 
 
- If I wasnt dying to hear the hd650 on crack
- wasnt waiting to hear the he400i
- had to choose between open or closed. 
 
I would pick the he500. Actually if the 650 and speedball and crack dont wow me then I will go for the AD/or ZMF vibro for closed back and an he 560/400i open back.
 
choosing one only would definitely be open.

Hey Dan, a couple people have asked me this question and I don't know how accurate my response is. What's the main difference between the MD 3.1 and the 3.2? It seems the 3.1 was not available for very long and was a quick transition from 3->3.2. Thanks!

We improved the tonal balance, smoothing the mids and increasing bass output.
