I can enjoy my T50RP if I forget what Dan told me!

Can you please tell us what Dan told you - before you forget it ?  :cool:

 

Thanks.

I guess Audeze just ain't your cup of tea is general? More detail on how the XC's lagged behind the Alphas?

I'm having some neck issues and while I find the AD improved considerably in every way over the MD, I plan to go with lighter hp's for a while.

Buy the LCD2, use for 15 minutes a day and increase by 15 minutes every 2 days till you reach 2 hours.  Sell LCD2 and buy AD.

 

Your neck problems are fixed.  You own me $600 for the consultation.

^^ haha. The neck problems started with the lcd2 ironically enough.

Now I'm a confirmed basshead but not an XB 500 type if you get my drift. I like clean, hard hitting bass and my Denon D7000, D5000 and D2000 are my reference class headphones, as is the TH600 since I did have it for a week.

I am on the audition list for the Alpha and will get it by late this week if everyone only keeps it for three days as Dan asked, and I can NOT wait to hear this. I have read such conflicting feedback on the bass that the only way to clear the mud, as always, is to hear them myself. I have the playlist set, my Pioner Spec amp warmed up and ready to feed these beauties.

This should be interesting. Very. biggrin.gif

All of this talk about neck problems...I'm still waiting for the day when a headphone made of solid concrete will be released to have the most natural-sounding soundstage.

Might as well get a pair of speakers at that point :p

Speaking of speakers. I also using active speaker monitors with my tube amps. I just brought the JBL LSR305 monitors recently and they have the best price/performance ratio money can buy!

I have a remarkable memory! Now, what was your question? smily_headphones1.gif

To give a little context, I told Dan that I was a fan of EQ and had done some significant EQing of the T50RP to improve its sonic character. His response was that the stock enclosures have some significant resonances, especially at the low end - I don't recall exactly, but it is on the order of a couple hundred Hz - which can't be fixed by EQ along (and I both know and agree that simple EQ can't adjust decay time constants caused by resonances). It is one of the reasons why he went with a totally new enclosure for the Alpha Dog. All of this was after I listened to the Alpha Dog and Mad Dog, so my listening experiences and initial conclusions were not colored by this discussion.

Hope this helps.

Same here but I toughed it out and the problem went away.  Later so did the LCD2 and the MD has been my primary ever since it was introduced.

I will be looking forward to your impressions.  My Lawton tuned/recabled D5000 are my favorite headphones. I prefer them to the stock D7000 for most songs I've heard.  The bass on the Mad Dog 3.2 is great on some music, but a little too thin at my normal, low-level volume settings.  I've always been one to boost the bass and treble a bit with an EQ or even a bass/treble knob from stereo receivers.  I prefer the V shape.  The D5000 sound perfect to me with no EQ because of their natural sound signature.  I've adjusted to the Mad Dogs quite nicely, and I do love them immensely, they just aren't quite as fun as my Denons.  That said, if the Alpha Dogs improve the bass in a way that makes it closer to D5000 in quantity, and not further away, these could potentially be the last pair of headphones I will ever need...until the next time. :regular_smile :

I think you should be looking at the TH600 instead.  I highly doubt the Alpha Dog will be 'improving' the bass by making it more closer towards D5000 quantity.

Are the Alpha dogs deeper in cup depth than the TH600/900s? My ears are so awkward that I get ear pains even with the TH900s (it touches the driver grills)
