MrSpeakers Alpha Dog Revealed! - The World's First Production 3D-Printed Headphones - Page 265

post #3961 of 8776

Hi Guys,

 

I have just arranged to have both the Mad Dog and Alpha Dog at our headphone open day tomorrow, can't wait to experience these as I have always been an open back user so can't wait to experience the Alpha Dogs, if anyone is in the UK please feel free to come along :-)

Slapped on the ALPHA pads, fired up the DV336se, hohoho...glorious sound,

the bass is well focused with impact from the shape of the alpha pads i believe.

Superb isolation..Never heard this can so good b4.

(Mr Speaker should come up with more pad-variations and start another $$stream. just saying if he is not bz enough :P )

:beerchug:

 

I can only imagine a one up from the Princess Leia look with the AD pads.  Seriously though, was there any difficulty installing the alpha pads on your DT770?  I'm thinking about getting the 250 version.

I'm coming up blank, maybe something with oversized cups,  but am impressed to find a Howard Stern Fan from Vietnam.

How DT770 compares to AD?
post #3966 of 8776

^^ It doesn't really. They are completely different. 

post #3967 of 8776

I just finished up my thoughts on the AD.

Thanks again for the opportunity, Dan.

You see I never heard DT770, so I don't know. If you could describe in more detail pls?

Ordered my Alpha Dogs. This is is going be hard waiting, but I am sure it will be worth it! Now I just need to decide on the Asgard2 or Lyr with Bitfrost, anyone use these combos with the AD's yet?

Ordered the AD´s on Saturday and will use them with a Meridian Explorer (hoping it works for the first time). I´m also thinking about getting a Schiit AMP/DAC.

I tried them both and the lyr was clearly better to me across the spectrum. More punchy bass and better dynamics overall. The Asgard 2 was clean and very resolving but somewhat thinner sounding than the lyr.

Has anyone use naim V1 with the AD? I ordered AD and want to buy V1. People said the V1 is great for HD800, What is the best matching for the AD?

+1 for the Lyr. I have the Alpha Dogs, Lyr & Amperex Orange Globe tubes, Grant Fidelity TD-11 DAC/ preamp, Mac Mini dedicated music server, & Decibel player for 16/44.1, 24/96 .wav files. The AD's & Lyr are a very synergistic match for me personally. Resolving, neutral sound signature with the tubes adding a touch of warmth.

Bass is very clean & powerful, not boomy or bloated. Mid & high end is detailed, but very sweet sounding without any sibilance or harshness. Non-fatiguing, extended listening sessions are a welcome result.

Unfortunately I downloaded OS Mavericks & can no longer play 24/ 192 music files, as my J Keny MK II M2 Tech Hiface USB/ SPDIF needs a new driver to play nice. Still though, the Alpha Dogs sound great even without a key component in my system.

Bravo, Dan/ Mr. Speakers ! cool.gif

Mavericks has really trashed my audio IO.  Just getting things stable again...

Thank you for the warning on Mavericks!
