Thanks.

 

I always wondered if there is a list of HEADFI reference songs that all reviewers could peg their listening to..and give their comments..

maybe a HEADFI REFERENCE CD..??  That should cut down one level of ambiguity,

Where is Jude....

:D

I'd probably hate that CD.  Please, no Allison Krauss, anything but that.

I would expect a lot of hipster and ancient music.

If it had a mix of different genres, ranging anywhere from electronic to classical, and not just a few types of music would probably be best. And definitely branch out from generic audiophile stuff. Probably be beneficial to range in "quality" as well, from regular 44k files all the way to 192k or dsd files. 

 

Most members libraries are 44/16 files so some of those would definitely need to be in there.

Mad Lust Envy is second on the Alpha Dog Tour right? So I guess it will take at least one week to see his review. Ah what do I do now? Just want to post some comments while waiting and try to improve my English a bit.

Was there any mention of how tall these stands are. I would like to compare to my omega replica headphone stand

 

It does look short.....or maybe you need to retract the headband all the way to have better clearance.

Dan himself even said the stand would be a little too short for the cables, because he had to fit it within the dimensions of a flat-rate box.  He recommends putting a spacer on top of the stand-- like a layer of rubber or something.

No. I'm LAST, lol (asked them to switch me to the end so I can spend just a little more time with them for reviewing purposes, as 3 days just is too fast to form a solid opinion of the AD when I have to do (music, gaming, and movies). I might take myself off the list because I may be borrowing someone else's AD quite a bit before my turn on the list. That, and my days with the AD might fall on my work week, which DRASTICALLY reduces the time I can actually use the AD).

No Allison Krauss. :eek:...blasphemy. Here is what I'm using to test AD's with:

 

1. Patricia Barber: Modern Cool. The first track has wonderful bass extension and Patricia's fantastic raspy vocals. 24/96

 

2. Daft Punk: RAM. Just how well can the AD handle electronic and super deep bass?  24/96

 

3. Muddy Waters: Folk Singer. One of the most intimate and realistic studio blues recording I know. 

 

4. REM: Murmur (MFSL recording) Just a great pop album. Stipe just really rocks this whole album out. 

 

5. Ann Akiko Myers: Air the Bach Album. One of the most beautiful classical violin recordings I've had the privledge to hear. Masterfully recording. 

 

6. Doug MacLeod: There a Time. Second track Black Nights has fantastic slide and bass guitar. 

 

7. The Fairfield Four: Standing in the Safety Zone. Great raw gospel vocal recording. Great test for mids. 

post #2426 of 7679

I try to include ****ty recordings into my tests too. 

post #2427 of 7679
I don't know if any of the more experienced head-fiers are willing to do so, but I'm curious to see in a review to what extent you can turn up the bass with the bass port.

So more Justin Bieber for you. Not what I'd go for, but enjoy nonetheless.

Actually, yes.

Of course it is all subjective. The detail and sub bass is very nice on the he-500 though. Let me know what you think of it in a pm, will ya? I also really recommend the jergpad mod and the grill mod if you don't need the dust protection or have time for some DIY.

 

noooo lol

 

HE said the ALPHA leaks a lot. I need a closed headphone with some bass now to go with the he-500. I have had the he-400, hd650, x1, and some d2k's so  I get it...

 

quoting mad lust:

 

"I have some new info on the Alpha Dog:

It has some SEVERE NOISE LEAK, but seems well suited for outside use, which seems to be a contradiction."
