Finally, AD's are expected to arrive tomorrow.  I expect to have a little time Saturday, and a little time Sunday to post some initial impressions vs. the HE-5LE. I expect to have no serious time until next Friday- but even if I only get 10 minutes, I will post about those 10 minutes.

That's great! I'll be looking forward to your impressions!

The T50RP (and thus the Mad Dogs and Alpha Dogs) have an omnidirectional pivot right at the earcup.  The solidity is thus due to the clamping force that prevents the pivot from moving.  Of course, any bass notes create force in opposition to the clamping force, and cause the earcups to move slightly, blurring the imaging.  The SRH1840 avoids this problem by having a less than great bass response ;) .

 

Oh... so that is how imaging works. It all has to do with the headband/yoke and how solid it is... 


It is interesting that every time I post something about engineering principles, it causes sputtering or ridicule.

 

Note that I did not say "It all has to do with..." that was you reading between the lines, and finding something I did not say.  It's also interesting that subsequent posters will accept the misinterpretation. :rolleyes:

 

I merely said that this was a deciding factor.

 

For example, you can have two cars, both have engines with great valve design, great cylinder design, stroked, bored, etc. and then one has nitro or turbo, and that one thing is responsible for the greater speed.   It is not the only thing, it is just responsible for the difference.

 

Headphones and Speakers are the same in many ways.   The ear pads are the "room treatments" of headphones, and the headband, and yoke are the "speaker stands" of headphones.  If you think that speaker stands don't affect imaging, then you need to go back to school.

 Huh, so a headphone made of concrete must have much better imaging than the HD800. Interesting...

 

Not very far off:

So Matt... already selling your Alpha Dogs?!?!?

I just noticed that your trader feedback score is +121, holy crap! I almost can't believe someone who's been on Head-Fi since just last year has bought & sold that much... :blink:

Believe it. :atsmile:

I noticed with interest, the weights posted earlier of the Alpha Dog vs Mad Dog.   Apparently the 3D printed ear cup, with its internal chambers, weighs more than the Fostex cups, and perhaps the Auto Paint, while it looks great, adds yet more to the weight...

I'm the lucky buyer of Matt's Alpha Dogs. I can't wait to hear them! Will write a full review after spending a few days listening to it

Dan was kind enough to refund and cancel my pre-order. He knew I must have been the buyer if Matt's Alpha Dogs.

Buyer?  I thought Matt said he liked the Alpha Dogs more than the HE-500.

post #2655 of 8454

For me, they are better than the he500. Right now I'm having trouble wearing hp's period. The hd650 is really the only one light enough for me ATM. And the ma900 whenever it finally gets back. I will likely spend a few weeks listening with speakers give my neck a chance to recover.
