Your best bet is to purchase them to try 'em.  Worst case you have 15 days "no questions" gaurantee.  Just a thought...

FYI, for anyone interested in a transportable and protective case for the AD the Pelican 1300 fits like a glove. :biggrin:

NIce.


Mine will be getting used on a train so would be handy.
Wonder if there are anymore form fitted cases that will fit.

Need to get it into my bag.


Though in saying that I used to cart my LCD2's daily in the travel case lol so I am sure I could deal in a pinch.

 

Very eager to hear your impressions once you get some time with these things :)

He stated "slightly", which is a lot more believable than "OMFG I WUD THINC ITS N OHPEN HEDPHONZ IF I DIDNT NOE N E BETTR"

I assume the perception of more openness is going to be more due to the tonality change, than some magical soundstage difference. Kind of like the K702 sounding more open than it's warmer/smoother Anniversary sibling, though realistically, it's about the same size, just that the Anniversary has thicker notes, which give the user a lesser sense of space in between the notes.

The warmer the headphone, the less spacious it will sound compared to a comparable headphone that is brighter/more neutral. At least my past experiences have shown me this. There are exceptions (Sony MA-900 being warm and incredibly spacious), but that's quite rare.

Not saying the AD might not have a significant difference from the MD in soundstage, but I'm going in with realistic expectations, staying away from the hyperbole.

I thought the cups were supposed to improve the sound stage by a lot?

To me, Matt is speaking the truth.  I compared MD vs AD quite a bit at the CA meet.  I was ready to buy the MD for the office and was told by BillP to go check out the AD.  That was the first time I heard the 2 and it was side by side comparison.  While there's note worthy improvement in sound stage for a closed pair, it won't be out of this world like some eager fans are hoping for or making it to be.  For such a fanatic AD supporter, Matt is very honest about his evaluation.  I respect this very much.  :beerchug:

Time will tell for me.

You got it so dead on and said it all.  +100.

Just wanna state, that I ABSOLUTELY love the MD, and I'm honestly more inclined to prefer it's tonality over the more neutral/linear headphone. So out of me, you can expect some realistic impressions on the AD, that isn't all glowing and hyperbole. The AD is going to to be fighting against the MD, not the other way around. I'm less about technical ability, and more about actual enjoyment. Not to say I wouldn't love a brighter/more neutral tonality either. I loved the Stax SR407 (among my favorite headphones), and it was certainly on the brighter, super speedy side of what I'm accustomed to.

=O  That's what Jude said.

post #2263 of 9040
Did he? Lol, I was making that up. If that happens to be true, then I'll be quite amazed, but somehow, I don't see that happening. Jude agreed with me on the Slyr and Plyr 1, so perhaps it's something I may have to look out for, but I'm a little more skeptical than most.

Yea it's 8:00 of video in very first post of topic.

 

I for one would love to see down to earth reviews too, I can't stand hyperbole just like you.

I also agree with this. The dt990s seems to act this way. It may be a combination of the treble and soundstage, but the treble definitely plays a part in the soundstage.
