From the impressions thread:
Thanks again Mullet for organizing the meet! I think I actually enjoyed talking with the members more than trying out gear this time around. I've gotten to the point where I don't feel like I need anything other than my modded hd800s and the UERMs as my home and portable headphone/iems. I liked how the alpha dogs sounded for a closed can, but they were a bit bright to my ears. Dan of course was also a pleasure to talk to, and I'm hoping for a future revision of the alpha dogs with perhaps a bit less treble! The LCD-X didn't impress me at all; I felt like the modded hd800s were just better in pretty much every way when I did a quick comparison between the two. The WA7 was a very beautiful looking unit and sounded good with my hd800s. The K1000s were very nice to try; it was my first time and they are definitely very unique. I might consider getting a pair sometime down the line. The UE4s were really great sounding for an entry CIEM. Baby UERMs, as some people have said. Was kind of disappointed that JH wasn't able to get a demo pair of the roxannes for Julie for the meet. I was also pretty impressed by the sr-007 and he-90 clones. They sounded pretty good for DIY stuff; could use a little less treble though. I also got the chance to try the he-6s for a little bit. They really do require lots of power to get volume out of them! Still, I preferred the HD800s. Wish I could do a better comparison between the two though, with better conditions.
It was nice seeing familiar faces and meeting new ones. I was hoping that more people were able to try the hd800s w/ anax 2.0, as I feel that the mod really fixes the problems that the stock hd800s had. The sound is just so much more balanced sounding, without any harshness even with a solid state amp.
Alex, PM me for the hd800 mod info!
ALPHA DOG HAD TO MUCH TREBLE... OMG I must hear one NOW q.q most of the time anything with "TO MUCH TREBLE" is usally the right amount to my ears :D and the Mad Dog really need some bright ness to them :D :D :D
Darn it... I just spent like $600ish on a D2k [Cocobolo wood back cups, and I'm selling my Wii U to fund a DIY Mod kit from Lawton Audio]
