HD600 and HD650's soundstage is not very dimensional or precise IMHO... It's almost closed in. How Alpha Dog compare to HD800 or x7xx line?

^^ Haven't heard either of those. I don't find it as large as he-400/he-4. More comparable to hd650.

So it seems no miracles going to happen here... (at least in terms of openness)

Honestly, I'm not the best judge of sound stage. My ears just don't seem the ability to make much of sound stage. I can only hear big differences.

I completely understand... That said, if you take AKG x7xx or HD800, you just "physically" feel the openness to the left and right. With HD800, you also almost "see" the depth, the scene in front of you. There are other attributes of soundstaging as well, just explaining that you would immediately notice the difference if Alpha Dog were THAT great in soundstaging.

 

Basically I was asking because from some people's comments, I thought these are going to rival HD800 even though they are closed-back...

That will be a bit to much to expect IMO.  I haven't really heard any headphone that rivals the HD800.  However, the TH900, a closed headphone that still cost 3x the price of the AD would be a pretty good comparisons IMO.

Jude said something about their openness but nobody in general compared them to something like the HD 800. 

 

How would a closed headphone beat the HD 800 anyway?

Most probably true... Have you heard the AD yourself? Are you going to compare with LCD-XC? :) I do like the concept behind Alpha Dog a lot and impressions so far are very impressive... therefore these LCD-XC better be HUGE to even get some serious attention.

post #2484 of 9033

Yes,

 

I had a good listen to the prototype.  I now own a pair.  But sadly haven't got a chance to listen to them yet.  If the LCD-XC is anything like the LCD-2.2 then maybe not.  If Audeze fids a way to make these sound open and airy, then yes.  Just have to wait and see.

Not a true believer in burn in.  However, did you notice any difference in the sound as time went on?

post #2486 of 9033

^^ Do you mean did I notice any difference in the signature over the first several days? If so, then no. They don't seem to go through a "burn in" process if that's what you mean.

HD600/650 "closed in soundstage" hmmmm

Oh just forget that comment. Possibly to his ears the HD600/HD650 are not dimensional because they were underated by some amps that he listened. To my ears high-end Sennheiser headphones have beautiful dimensions not the best but good (especially the HD800 has the best soundstage).

+1 on HD800 but HD700 soundstage is very wide and 3D
