MrSpeakers Alpha Dog Revealed! - The World's First Production 3D-Printed Headphones - Page 154

post #2296 of 7824

http://www.ebay.com/itm/XLR-4-Pin-Female-Jack-to-1-4-Right-Angle-Audio-TRS-Guitar-Output-cable-2m-609B-/120903639137?_trksid=p2054897.l4275

 

Is there any reason this wouldn't work with the XLR version of the Alpha Dog? Pretty sure I'll be getting a HiFi-M8 for an amp, but would like to have a TRS adapter for trying other amps and the like.

 

I would much prefer one in this style-

But I can't find a 4 pin XLR version, all 3.

played the 7 drums imaging test track from Sheffield Lab and the AD is spot on. It's surprisingly easy to drive too. Running the Wyred4Sound uDAC in Class A mode. Nice paring. Gonna move to bigger amps this weekend. So far, I can honestly say it's worth owning. I may turn up the bass one pinch, maybe...

Please confirm if any leak issues. Need to know (work related, if they leak I have to stick with the Maddies...which isn't so bad, really).

It doesn't look out of place on the mad dog because the cups are ugly on that, too. That's an all round ugly headphone. It's different with the Alpha. You've got sexy pads, glorious cups and an eww stock plastic monstrosity headband.

 

 It's like putting Bargain Basement furniture in a $12m mansion, or an obese unkempt neckbeard in a $3000 suit. You just don't do it.

 

Actually the cliche does apply because you did in fact say that you hate .... so that makes you a hater .... 

 

That said, I dont particularly care for the headband either. I wont go as far as your statement of it being fugly or an unkempt neckbeard but I agree its an area for aesthetic improvement

 

I think the phones look good overall even with the current headband .... Do they look as good as my V-moda's ? Not in my opinion ...

You're right and honestly I'm not trying to 'slay him' as I agree that the headband is the least attractive part of this headphone. I was simply pointing out that him saying he hates the headphone, does in fact make him a hater ..... 

 

For the record, that was my lame attempt at being tongue in cheek .... No flame/slay war being started on my part ....

Sort of tangentially related to the AD, but Jude has revealed that Fostex is releasing a new RP headphone - didn't give a model number, but my initial reaction was :eek:

Potential direct competition to AD? Very cool.

Doubtful from Fostex; they wouldn't try to step on the TH600/TH900 with a new RP-series can. I bet it's more of an MD competitor than one of the AD.

That would be my guess, but there weren't any other details besides the news that something is coming. I wonder if Dan has an arrangement with Fostex to ensure a steady supply of drivers.

Sorry, but the appearance issue is borderline irrational with full size headphones.

 

I don't know about you, but I cannot see the top of my head.

 

When I wear full size headphones, anyone else who would be in the room, is someone whom has already established my status and position in the tribal hierarchy.

 

So, it doesn't matter.
