MrSpeakers Alpha Dog Revealed! - The World's First Production 3D-Printed Headphones - Page 292

post #4366 of 9033

Now that the Alpha Dog production is completely up and running, I know it might still be too early to ask...is there even a small chance that in the coming months we could see a couple of cup color options? I can see how great the automotive/metallic red looks on the cups, but I don't think I could help myself not picking up an AD if there was a metallic black version that would complete the "blackout" look.

And this begs the question, how long are you wearing the hf before making up your opinion? I find that personally it is a 30 minute process to get my hearing relaxed enough to trust the phone itself. That's 30 minutes with no fiddling or amp changes or cable voodoo or anything else. Less than that time and I wouldn't bother to offer an opinion at all (unless they were diabolically bad out of the box).

 

Depends whether or not I've been listening with other headphones or speakers immediately beforehand and how long I have. I decided that they are headphones that I really need to sit down for some time to listen to.

I'm with you, they look nice with their reddish cups but an all black stealth option would look freaking sweet

When i first got mine it took me a good week of close listening to fully get my head around the signature. I also found the sound grew on me more and more as time went on. When you have the chance get yourself one and have a blast my friend, I did.

I would definitely pay an extra $50-$100 for something like a color choice. I would want royal blue.

 

Could call it the iDog, lol

Anyone ordered in the past week or so? What kind of wait time are we looking at?

I noticed the HD700 on sale today for $650, about the same price as the Alpha Dogs.  Any comparisons?

I was in Best Buy in Minneapolis the other day (one with a Magnolia substore), and listened to the 700's. The woman offered me a deal for $550 and that she would ship them to me (I live in NH), but I had already ordered the Alpha Dogs, so I was not interested.

 

I took her card though, so if you want to give her a call and see if the offer still stands, just PM me.

 

EDIT: The other day means last week. She said it was an extended black Friday deal, so that's why I am not sure if today she will still honor the deal. However, Best Buy gets a lot of play in pricing (something a lot of people don't know), so you can usually haggle on price in the stores.

I have both of them but I need more time listening to the Alpha Dog since I've got them recently.

So far the Alpha Dog is the best sealed headphones that I've heard.

They're $550 at razordogaudio.com with the coupon code RAZORDOG100 right now.

 

I haven't them, but I suspect it partly comes down to the age old question of open vs. closed.

love the focus on neutrality and improved treble. Be interesting to see who can compare them to the Paradox, as they seem to have similar goals regarding sound signature.

You're a little late to the party friend. I already did that HERE on my YouTube channel

Timbre is pronounced tamber. :P

Actually, open & dynamic vs. closed & orthodynamic!

I don't use HD700 anymore but for me they close to HD800 but with less details but similar soundstage. Alpha Dogs sound totally different and only direct comparison will tell you which signature you want

Thanks.  Since I prefer the overall listening experience of the Alpha Dogs to the HD800, my curiosity at the tatalizingly low price point for the HD700 has been satisfied based on a similar signature.
