MrSpeakers Alpha Dog Revealed! - The World's First Production 3D-Printed Headphones - Page 241

post #3601 of 7995

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.

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.

I'm that feel happy to listen to a clear sound even outside

Very nice photos, thanks. 

 

@Bolded Text - The cable running through the headband is because the original MD is single-entry. With the new universal and now the AD using dual-entry, the cable run is no longer needed. Which IMO is a plus and as you said much better looking.

I agree that the dual entry headphones look cleaner since they can be separated from each other. It's a nice touch in the design department. And are you saying that the Alpha pads are different now than they are on the 3.2?

The pads are the same but the Alpha mounting system is better and allows the pad to assume the correct geometry more easily. We designed the mounting for the pad vs fitting a pad to an existing design with the Fostex.

Yeah I can imagine the alpha pads being stretched unnaturally when it has to be wrapped all the way onto the stock T50RP cups, rather than having it wedge into slits i.e. the Alpha Dogs mounting system so the pads stay slacked.

Well that works. XD
I was eating lunch and pulled out my drink. If you're still wondering what the claret colour looks like, it kind of looks like the same colour as the XXX Açai-Blueberry-Pomegranate flavour Vitamin Water. That and add some sparkles in it and you've got the Alpha Dog's colour.

 

 

I tried the Alpha Dog on the bus today with the above portable rig and it sounds pretty good! The noise isolation is superb since I couldn't even fully hear the words of a couple speaking Mandarin Chinese right next to me on the bus and while walking around the university, I can barely hear the people around me.

I'm really wishing now I hadn't canceled my order placed on September 15. I was having some real comfort problems with the Mad Dog I had just received; thought I was allergic to the leather maybe. Turns out it had nothing to do with the Mad Dog and some irritation on my scalp. If I hadn't, I'd have it hand within a week or so from now!

I have a Halloween tradition in which I listen to Sunn O)))) "Monoliths and Dimensions".  Decided to see if the AD's can handle it.

 

Verdict:  :bigsmile_face:
