I thought my web-browsers have trouble but look like this error has comes from the head-fi.org itself. In morning when I access this thread my eyes and my mind were like "What the hell?" and now I have known that everyone has the same issue too.
I think the screw holes on the Alpha Dog just affect the low range such as bass quantity or something like that, not sure that it can affect the mid and high too or I did miss something in this thread because there are too many arguments by someone who caused. If so then it would be nice for ones to re-review the Alpha Dog to evaluate sound performance correctly. Thanks for that.
About the stock cables with Alpha Dogs I think they are nice and durable with high performance even when comparing performance to other after-market cables such as Q Silk Cable but if Dan somehow reduces the thickness and the weight then it will be a nice improvement. We know that ortho headphones gain weight more and more like the new LCD-XC with 605gram. Hell no, I would not like to put a helmet on my head for couple hours.
