Yeah I'm never going to stem the tide of disinformation... but... snake oil was known to work and that was the point.  Snake Oil Salesmen put vegetable oil in bottles and labeled it "Snake Oil".  Nowadays, there is scientific proof for snake oil (look up Omega-3 Fatty Acids).

 

So a ridiculously expensive item, made out of cheap parts, that does nothing, is not "snake oil" (but it might be sold by "Snake Oil Salesmen").

You are completely discredited by saying Omega 3 is "snake oil". Play again.

What would be the main fatty acid in snake oil then?

Never mind- you win...

 

Stanley's snake oil—produced by Clark Stanley, the "Rattlesnake King"—was tested by the United States government in 1917. It was found  to contain:

Great.  Someone somewhere is going to equate headphones with prostate cancer.  Sorry for adding to the clutter- I guess the wait for the AD is getting the better of me

Enough with the derail - use private messages for that stuff.

I am looking forward to upgrading my MDs to the Alphas. Looks like the perfect combination for me right now, I might even sell my HE500 based on how good it sounds. Hmmm...

It seems like someone was trying to imply "B.S." but couldn't come out and say it as such.  Thus it was done cryptically.  Hmm ...

Right,

I'm sure all the people will have dozens of changes to suggest ,as to color,or having the rails changed & painted-once these things start to ship.

Must of this thread has been taken up with certain people suggesting other colors,& modification, the AD's haven't even gone into production yet..

The only reason ,I read this thread is because , guys like Matt & a few others ,who contribute solid reviews and opinions about what exactly these new headphones will sound like.

 

Thats what I meant by other" BS "-OK?

Head-Fi posts are often filler posts with very little inherent value.

 

Just like this post! :D

A moderator or "guy-in-charge-of-the-thread" should mark the useful posts (those with information on the product in question) and add a filter in the thread to get only the relevant information.

Can anyone speculate how these will perform with the likes of the HRT MicroStreamer? I know orthos generally need a lot of juice, but wonder if - akin to how the Audeze LCD3 apparently worked brilliantly with the MicroStreamer (per the Positive Feedback review) - if the AD will perform similarly well with it.
