We are accepting payment at the time of order.  If our backlog gets longer we'll start a wait list, but we're working hard to avoid that and keep the back log reasonable...

Do you plan to offer a cable with a 1/8" connector for use with portable amps?

Probably but not just yet.  There are great cheap adaptors from Grado and Sennheiser...

Most of my aforementioned acoustic instrument tracks have excellent bass quality and sometimes quantity, but rarely go below 60hz and never below 40hz.

So what tracks do you like to use ?
Bjork - Virus. I'll link you to number of tracks on soundcloud when I'm on a computer tomorrow.

I have that track... it seems a good test track, since it seems relatively unprocessed, and I'm very familiar with Bjork's voice by now.  I'll add it to my Test playlist.

When/if you do, one like this-

 

with the screw off quarter inch adapter would be amazing.

+1 for me - I love those connectors. It covers all single ended needs for me.  The fancy cable / fancy connector guys don't seem to like them as much...

if the quality loss of that adapter bothers you, you probably should be looking at balanced anyway

Those out there with cable knowledge.
How much would I be looking at for a hirose terminated, light weight approx 1.2m or 4ft cable for the alphas. I want a more friendly cable for my pb2 on the train

I can't believe these use the same driver. They sound really different! The Alpha Dog definitely has a more refined sound overall next to the Mad Dog 3.2. :-o

 

 

 

 

^ part of my playlist

 

I just realised the Alpha Dog doesn't have cables running from the earcup to the headband, which the Mad Dog has. The headphone looks a lot cleaner without that external cable.

 

As for the pads, the Alpha Dog's pads feel a lot squishier to me while being deeper as well.

Jesus, that finish looks lovely.

post #3597 of 8750
Having listened to a pair of these at the recent London Head Fi meet up, must say I also liked the finish of the cups, as well as the great sound coming out of these Alpha Dog phones. They are certainly on my radar to buy in the future...wink.gif

What do you mean by "best headphones to use outside"? I am going to use them for a mobile rig, but I could not see using them on the move. One chip of paint and I would be wanting to replace them ^_^

I interpret as the best sounding headphone, certainly not ideal for a morning run.  For me, a mobile rig can simply mean being able to roam around my house or enjoy headphone listening in any room and not chained to a desktop rig.  As a portable audiophile, I still consider the Ultrasone Signature DJ the best closed portable available for EDM and pop, but when I want to enjoy vocals, acoustic guitar, etc. the Alpha Dog is about as good as it gets in the closed portable category and is as good as it gets for $600.
