No, if you take them further back, then you are changing the design relationship between the ear, driver and enclosure.
Alpha Dog takes the T50RP driver and changes the relationship to the ear (Alpha Pads) and to the enclosure (new 3D printed ear cup).
So, you are agreeing with me on both points:
* Previously you stated that one identified technically superior drivers "Because they sound better". That was my point arguing against the other poster's comment that the drivers were identified as superior because they were more expensive, bigger and had graphs.
* Now you are agreeing with me that the relationship to the ear and to the enclosure is crucial to whether a driver works well or not.
We can only evaluate a driver based on its sound quality in use in a headphone. As people like Dan and LFF make better and better headphones from the T50RP, we find that our estimation of the T50RP driver increases. So, the original argument "it can't be that good because it uses a T50RP driver" is a circular argument.
