For those few who've heard the Alpha Dog...
I've got a conundrum. I do 80-90% of my listening at work, like lots of us, mostly classical. I can get away with either open or closed. Closed can be nice, because I can leave my door open. Open can be nice, because when the door is closed, I can hear people knock. I may prefer closed though with the door open.
Here's the choice: Do I get a HE-400 to compliment my HD600 or do I sell the HD600, not buy the HE-400, and get the Alpha Dog? The HE-400 would be to something fun and different to compliment my HD600 and because I got a little room in my budget. The Alpha Dog would be the pursuit of the next level, as close to TOTL as my budget will likely ever take me. Either way, its likely to be the end of my headfi search for quite some time. So I guess what I'm asking, with the HD600 and HE-400 both being great cost to ratio phones, is Alpha Dog > HE-400 + HD600 or is the HD600 + HE-400 > Alpha Dog?
(If it helps, my at home headphone is likely to be the 3.2 Mad Dog, where I need closed. I liked the 3.2 more than the 3.0 for classical but I probably prefer the HD600 at this point... The 3.2 is much more of a challenger to the HD600 for classical than the 3.0 was.)
