Would you also include a 'Heir Audio Rendition' amp. Is that also good enough to be considered?
Sorry, I'm not an expert on amps. The amps I mentioned (besides the ones I own) were a quote from another Headfi-er in the Mad Dog thread.
Mad Dogs are also modded T50RP's.
If amps sound good with the Mad Dog (and/or other modded T50RP like the Paradox and Thunderpants), they should also be fine with the ZMF.
So maybe you could ask this here: http://www.head-fi.org/t/666284/mrspeakers-mad-dog-impressions-and-discussion-thread
I've also found that the volume knob is almost exact to volume level from the headphone with the Hifiman he-500, ofcourse I realize maybe not as many people own the he-500 as well though.
Those look great! So many sweet paints out there. I almost spent two hours in hobby lobby the other day. That place is dangerous!
Thankts! I'm still trying to figure out the camera so the picture isn't great. I was actually really close to getting a can of red and blue paint for each side like the DT48A (and other audiology headphones), but the idea seemed tacky when I thought about it in the store. That reminds me though, I should get another one of those heads at Hobby Lobby to use as a headphone stand.
Yeah headphone photography was harder than I thought it would be...I found that an almost reverse three point system with side light and then a harsh back light has worked well then exposing to the headphones so that all else blows out. Still working on it...
Now that's an idea...cool stuff! Certainly an acquired taste I suppose...
I've been meaning to invest in a lightbox, but natural light seems to work well enough if I can find an ideal spot. Also using a camera I'm more familiar with helps...
The idea's cooler for IEMs, but I really appreciated it on my old DT48's because they didn't have indicated sides. Then again, doing it on such large cups looks slightly ridiculous:
