Are the Dog Pads the same as the Shure pads? o.0

 

I like Lenny White, Jamey Haddad, Mark Sherman's Explorations in Space and Time album.

 




WOW! The music sounds like it's coming from waaay outside my Mad dogs. I haven't listened to Lenny White since Twennynine's "Peanut Butter." This is a huge departure from that! This may be the first album I listen to when I get my Alphas.

He may be able to improve on the comfort if he decides to make his own headband (I'm sure that would have to be the case for him to go through the trouble - he strikes me as a utilitarian sort of person). Whatever the case may be, it sure is fun watching the new stuff come out in drips and drabs, and of course the reactions.

 

I must admit that I don't know what it takes to manufacture drivers. But that is a good Idea.. specially the intel inside-like logo part.

...it's not a novel concept/shape for a headphones stand...

 

 

And for ease of manufacturing, I think it would be easier to use a single sheet of steel instead of multiple parts like in other headphone stands' shapes.

I didn't say it was a new idea (I knew all about those 99% profit margin stands, lol), I am just pointing out the "pun"...

That looks like one piece, bent on a press brake.

Thanks for pointing this out to me. I manage a sheet metal facility.......and we powder coat. May try a different design for my other headphones. Dan did good on this and the anodized arms, I think the Alpha will look amazing........

I cant wait to send in my MD for the upgrade. Going to do a full review comparing the AD with a magni, sx650 and through the speaker taps on the 650. Give people an idea about power and scalability. Really excited to see what they can do through the taps. Jump from magni to 650 is noticeable and the magni hits a wall as far as power goes. Once i get past 1oclock on it the MDs dont really get much louder.

Came here with 100 new posts marked on my subscriptions thinking that he suddenly announced he was shipping early or something.

 

Nope, we're all flipping out over the headphone stand. Nice work, by the way, Dan!

Yep, I don't know if I should wait for the 6 weeks or just order a MD and upgrade it to the AD in the future. 

post #1874 of 7562

oh wow 6 weeks... and then I have to wait for the regular orders to go out before I can send the one I have in for upgrade. hmmm

 

I'll prob just get an akg k712 and upgrade the one I have to the 3.2 and call it quits for a couple of months. 

 

The AD isn't going anywhere. Meanwhile I'll fight covetousness as I am reading reviews from the tour.
