Since you ask, detail and clarity were the parameters in the first quote, and genre bandwidth in the second quote.

 

For example, if you are listening to Skrillex, the detail and clarity are less of a factor, and so the greater bass quantity of the Mad Dog makes it more enjoyable for that particular artist/genre.

 

Again, take anything further to PM please, out of respect to other members' wishes.

@kstuart The last time I checked the Thunderpants don't have the T50RP stock enclosure.

Yes, you're right, I misspoke.

 

And in fact, until recently, they were regarded in an almost mystical light, in terms of their improvement over the other T50RP mods - see:  http://www.headfonia.com/standing-ovation-smeggys-thunderpants/

 

Just to take one quote from that review:

Quote:
 One word is that it has a crystal clear and clean sound, and in that aspect even better than the LCD-2 and the Hifiman HE-400/500 perhaps only rivalled but the HE-6.

Which is very similar to what I had mentioned about the Alpha Dog, and which was what the argument was really about, that a T50RP mod could not be that good.

Ah, I see my point was missed entirely, then. Explains a lot...you were arguing about something I was not. I do apologize if I am hard to follow at times.

I am certainly hard to follow a lot of the time !

 

Often, technical people are not the best at communicating.

 

Actually, given that now anyone on Earth can (in theory), post in these threads, I am amazed that there is mostly good communications.

A thread is a long line of posts in chronological order.  So one thread is a terrible format for "information" and a perfect format for discussion ("arguing").

 

If someone wanted to make it easy to find information, then each headphone should have its own sub-Forum, and every time that someone received their headphones and had "impressions" to post, they would start a new thread "Joe's Impressions" and "Fred's Impressions".  (If someone has a question with Joe's use of the word "transparency" then that would occur in the thread about "Joe's Impressions".  Then if the MOT (headphone maker) was posting, they would have an "Announcements" thread where they would say " We are now shipping October 30 " and " Connectors are now available on the web site ".  Just looking at the sub-Forum thread list would instantly tell you whether there was anything really new.

Or we could stay generally on topic. That makes it a lot easier to deal with. Nothing stops us from starting a new thread when we want to argue about something (and linking it here), and leave this thread so when people want to learn about AD headphones, they can.

 

Case in point, the last 9 posts in this thread (including this one), has no valuable information about AD's. I know if I look at a thread with 305 pages in it, and the last page is a bunch of bickering, I tend to think that the last 50 pages are most likely off topic crap, and I go look for information elsewhere.
