It's loud enough but doesn't sound that good. It's sounds closed and much less dynamic

Would an amp fix those issues?

Yes, it depends on the amp. My PB2 worked well with the mad dogs when I had them

I'm not sure about the e12 but the c5 didn't have enough juice to drive the mad dogs when I had both

Not quite enough IMO.

I'm using the E12 with my MDs right now. I have no other reference to other amps in terms of sound, but they definitely have the power to push the MDs. I know the E12 is a bit on the warmer side, and the sound stage is more closed, but I do really enjoy the sound.

Going back to one of the cans you asked to compare, the md3.2 beats the k701 on depth by a lot. This will make vocals appear more distant, not hollow, though. If that's fine by you and your tastes, the 3.2 vs 701 driven by a: a neutral bus powered audio interface with weak power, fiio e11, and fiio x3 resulted with the md still winning in depth, despite not being driven as well. The md is a much better investment if you plan to one day upgrade your source.
Have you considered the vmoda m100 since you're in this price range? I own the m80, but i suggest checking out the new xs as well if you're okay with on ear. Might be right up your alley, based on some of the feedback.

In SQ the VModas are at a lower level, not just a different sound. The M100 I had had for a few days had bloatier bass, less detail and mids which were affected by the bass. Its just a less refined sound overall

Hi all...  

 

As a FYI, tomorrow through the end of the day Monday we will be out of the office and not shipping.  Shipments will resume Tuesday.  I will not be online or responding to email during this time.

the pads are deeper,

bass sounded more focused, separation better...

a toss between this alpha n jmoney.

 

Doubt the apha can squeeeeez onto the akg k550s....Beyers, pro900s  should be fine. 

Wanted to ask if the pads had a decent sizer on the inside for the ear because they look like relatively smaller holes but this could be the picture, I know the the DT990 stock pads have about 6 or 7 cm for you ear to go in. I wanted to use these pads with the soundMagic HP100( because though the headphones are very comfy they tend be too shallow) So any info would be much appreicated.

Yes definitely. I have huge-ish ears and they fit completely.

In my opinion they don't. There's hardly 5 cm space left for the ear (from left to right).

DT 990/880 and DT770 pads have more room around the ear. The Alpha pads have more depth space.

I found the Alpha pads opening too small for my big ears. But maybe the opening is wider on other headphones then the T50RP.

As a example for this: my DT150 pads are wider on the ZMF then on the DT150 itself.

Yeah I have heard that depending on the frame of ear cup that you are putting the aftermarket pad on it can very with the dimensions of the hole a bit. I wonder if this is due to the stretching of that said pad you are using. I know that the DT 990's and the soundMagic HP100's pads are about the same size in width from the edge of the cup to the next, but also about the same in ear hole dimensions roughly 6 and a half cm. I think I want to order some black velour DT 990 pads to try them with the HP100, but I am a little nervous about the sound changing ina negative way. I know there was a previous owner of the HP that used the DT770 velour and said it was a nice fit and sound, and the DT990s are very similar with just a bit of extra softness. Also wanted to know how the COP from Beyers are on the HP
