The closed Audeze has not been scrapped--it is still very much a go.

 

 

Huh? Here's the thread I posted about it, after my one session with the only version of it I've heard:

 

Audeze closed-back prototypes! Yeah, this is one of the headphones at the top of my wish list.

 

Based on what I heard, I'm eagerly awaiting the closed Audeze, and will order one the moment the opportunity to do so opens up.

 

Are you a fact-checker for The Onion?  I keed, I keed.  tongue.gif

 

Okay, with that, back on topic.

I heard vintage amps paired really well with the Maddogs and I have a couple laying around here and I'm not sure if they're any good?

Got the Mad Dogs yesterday and already madly in love. Pun intended. Anyways, do these guys benefit from any significant burn in?

A couple of hours at most was my experience.  Dead stable after that.

That is kind of what I noticed, they sound slightly less congested than they did last night. May it has something to do with that 8 hour binge... Thanks for the reply!

Mad dog vs HD650 ?

post #667 of 2999
Thread Starter 

The 650 is more of a complementary hp to the MD. They are pretty different.

Very complimentary.  One is open, one is closed.  Similar sound signature, though the Mad Dogs are a bit more engaging, a bit more PRAT (which boils down to "makes my foot tap" to me), while the HD650's have a bit more breadth to the sound stage, are a bit more polite.  Both are similar, both can be listened to for hours, both are great headphones.  I own both, and plan to keep both.  If one had to go, it would be the HD650, though more because I need closed headphones, and less that it is "worse" in any way.  That said, I prefer the Mad Dog by a bit, and they get the most head time by far.

LOL!

Couldn't be more different answers here!

Matt and Greed say they are different.

aamefford says they sound similar...

 

Based on the HD600s, I would actually tilt to the "similar" sound camp... but haven't heard the HD650s so I wont say anything... :-p

As we can see.  Anything can be compared.  Great job aamefford.

The two phones I've got are the HD650s and now the MDs. I love the 650s for their quick and clear feel. IMO, anything acoustic sounds great; add vocals and the cans shine. Although they aren't angled, I prefer their soundstage to many phones that are angled. I like the 650s in that they offer and airy top end but don't skimp on the bass (I'm looking at you, HD598s).

 

I got the MDs because I require a portable headphone that seals, doesn't slide off my head, and... well, sounds good. I've only had the dogs for a day but I'd say they compliment the 650s well. By no means a portable 650 but they are satisfying my soundstage needs. I'm sure that the more time I spend with them, the more I will discover their own unique musical qualities.

 

But holy hell, Elton John hasn't sounded this good in a while!

Anything an ounce less clear and quick than HD650 would be straight out bad.

Our differences in hearing never ceases to amaze and amuse me.  One really has to listen to headphones to know if they will like them.  This is always fun to me.

Not sure if that's tongue in cheek or not.  If I had an M6 to go with my crappy old PT cruiser, I'd be comparing them as well...  If it was tongue in cheek, no offense taken, my skin is quite thick.  If not, thank you.wink.gif
