Aesthetics goes a long way. It gives headphones a PREMIUM look.

Look at the Alpha Dog. It no longer looks like $100 (T50RP). It LOOKS as good as I'm sure it sounds.

 

Don't get me started on Philips, easily the most overlooked overperforming, underpriced line in all of audio.

That is quite possibly the best mid range open headphone to hit so many marks for so many people. I can't say anything for the others, but I stand by the X1 as the best $300 I spent on Head-fi. Not perfect, but definitely did more things right than wrong.

Kinda have to agree, pricing is low for all the areas the X1 gets right

Not at what they used to cost new... maybe now at their current new/used prices.

I think he was agreeing with you

Yeah, I read it wrong. I fixed it. Lol. It's sleep time. frown.gif

Back to the AD, I wonder how it will stack up to the HE-500 as the half-grand champion around here. Though judging by the tonal differences, probably going to be apples to oranges.

Dan, is the AD's pads going to slip on like before, or did you change the way the pad is placed on the AD? I dunno if I'm remembering things wrong, but I could've sworn this was changing from the MD?

I was just trying to say that there are crowds and products for which aesthetics is of lesser importance than it is for all things Apple. I know there's a lot of happy iDevice owners here on HF but in general audiophiles are geekier than average consumers and might value performance over looks.

That said, I'm excited to see Alpha Dogs have both.

It is changed - it is somewhere in the thread (a clever thread search might find it).

 

Also, I discovered that someone wants Dan to 3D print a unicorn and a flying horse:

Boy...  the black sliders will look cool with the mad dogs....

 

Sorry, no...

The Alpha Dog has a totally different mounting system for the pads.  There is a channel for the pad mounting flange to slip into; you rotate the pad and it's on.  Looks nicer, and is pretty easy.

Can't wait to see it in action. smily_headphones1.gif

Some companies can't seem to get the grasp of pad installation *cough*PhilipsHifimanAudeze*cough*.

The simpler, the better, in case something goes wrong with the pads.

"I never felt the Mad Dog matched up in looks to it's sound. It was a definite sleeper, which is charming in it's own way."

 

Exactly..And after I sold all my audio gear to get the HD800's,the only other headphone I kept,and swore I'd never sell them was the MD's

Now,I'm glad I did.

Just counting down the days here. Is this what it felt like the week before Christmas when Santa still came?
