Is it too much to hope that Tyll (InnerFidelity) receives a sample for review?

^ I've been wondering that as well.

+1 for the Taboo, it goes great with the LCD 2's and more than a few love it with the HD 800.

 

I'm betting it would pair really well with the Alpha Dogs, we will have to see

Looks like I was exactly right - except that it took 5 MONTHS, not years.

(Please don't take this to mean I'm implying that someone took this idea from me. Anyone could look at the T50RP modding community and look at the 3D Printing scene and put two and two together, and Mr Speakers most likely had this idea years in the making.)

Contrarian, here.

You know why all of you young guys have no money, no job, and diminishing prospects?

Because everyone under 30 wants everything to be free and/or cheap.

If the price drops, margins drop, income and revenue drop, and then you don't have a job to buy the goodies you want because all of the jobs that used to exist, are gone because revenue for the business dropped and salaries and hours for the jobs at that business had to go down.

Technology is eliminating more jobs than it creates and the ones it creates are lower paying, fewer benefits, fewer hours. Every single job I had to pay for University as well as half the ones I had after, are gone.

In other words, your 3-D headphone revolution will create many cheap phones that you can all print at home while you are unemployed as your standard of living continues to drop lower, and lower, and lower.

Brilliant.

Allrighty then, I suppose the answer is the 3000 dollar headphone that takes 100 man hours of manual labour to produce.

IMO, for its price, the MDs is really a pair of great headphones, and it sure can deliver a very engaging and musical sound. However, in term of technicalities, it just can't touch the top dogs like the LCDs, HE-6 or HD800. When these top headphones are driven well, they simply scale much much higher than the MDs.

While you may be right to some degree, we're really talking about the AD here. You might wait and give it a listen and then see how you feel about it compared to TTOL.  :D

I don't do reviews but I sure do enjoy planar headphones :D

Well, if everything becomes dirt cheap, that might help living standards a little bit. It's not that the Englishmen are worse off now than they were before the Industrial Revolution. Still have a long way to figure out hot shower but otherwise they're pretty much OK.

Keep innovating MrSpeakers, the buggy whip makers will always complain.

I wish some of those were actually reviews though. It might be hard to because these mods go through so many revisions and would make his review dated. If the ALPHA DOG isn't expected to go through many revisions because of the 3d printed cup then and waits more than a year it would make a lot of sense for him to review it.

And me..:biggrin:  I pretty much like open headphones opposed to closed.  However, the ADs are some really good closed headphones.  They even do mids better than the TH900:eek:  IMO of course.  Bass - the TH900 gets the nod.  However, the ADs are not far behind.   The treble while both are pretty smooth the TH900s are brighter and the ADs are on the dark side but doesn't seem to be recessed at all.  The Th900 are more lively up which I happen to like, even that becomes ones preference.  

 

Price no option I'll take the TH900s

 

Price per performance I'll take the ADs all day long..

 

Never hearing the Th600 - the ADs may come even closer to them than the TH900s.  

 

From memory I'll take the AD's over the D2K and D5K either way.  The D7K puts up a better fight.  Really have to have them side by side to decide..
