Of course, this is the exact opposite of reality.  Here are the unmodified ones (actually T40RP) in the studio:

 

 

The only difference in the Mad Dogs is the decals.   The Alpha Dogs, on the other hand, have custom cups and custom red automotive paint job and seem "less modded" ??

I took that to mean that the author found the Alpha Dogs to seem more like they're manufactured by Mr. Speakers, instead of being a mod.  That they have the appearance of being OEM, apart from the "Fostex" band.

^^ +1 I didn't take the comment as derogatory.

FYI we're moving to a bigger facility on Feb 1.  This will likely slow our shipping next week.

Does this mean after a slow down there is a potential speed up? ie more headphones can be done at time.

Yup.  We're moving more and more of the process in house, the new facility supports that and gives us more room to work.

Just wondering will the move be affecting the first batch of upgrades you have received? To my calculations that move is around the 2 week period of 1st batch upgrades. Not to rush or anything, or to sound anxious. Just would like to keep a tab on things.

I didn't take it as derogatory, it took it as confused and inarticulate.

 

Here is the whole quote:

 

Quote:
As much as I liked the Mad Dog, they look and feel like a modified headphone. The Alpha dog, on the other hand, does not, but the big question is: Does the sound quality stand up to it's looks.

 

The blog, on the whole, has the sort of styling that makes you think that there is something significant going on.  Whereas, the Head-Fi member reviews on the bar to the right ---> (Recent Reviews) are people's opinions written with whatever skills they happen to possess, and everyone is welcome to do so.

 

But in the quote above, not only is the comment pointless, but it is not proofread at all (Dog capitalized first time and not second time, and the classic " it's " where he means " its " which occurs several times).  "Stand up to" is the wrong phrase, he means "match".  Basically, the whole paragraph is clumsy.  What he meant to say was:

 

" As much as I like the Mad Dog, they don't look like anything special.  The Alpha Dog, on the other had, has a unique custom look with more style.  So the question is - does the sound quality match its good looks ? "

 

Also he may not be aware of this, but he compared the Alpha Dog to the Mad Dog 3.0, not the corrected version 3.2... so I don't think there is anything more significant to the blog post than any other impressions in this thread or in the Head-Fi members reviews.

Sorry it was an error, I would like to write : "Maybe it's a stupid question but i have an akg k545. Do you think guys that the Aplha dog should be an upgrade ? ..."

 

Do you have any opinion about it?

Bahaha, I thought the modded MD/AD statement in that review was pretty funny. I get what the guy is going for, but that was a poor way to word it (but the review itself is pretty poorly written at times, so I guess it fits?). At least it's better than 6 Moons in that, you know, you can actually make sense of it.

 

Settle down, I can assure you this did NOT in any way affect the sound of your headphones or associated equipment, nor should your writing ability affect your hearing ability.

A little HTML and CSS makes it looks significant?

 

Also, you own the headphones, and have read half a dozen reviews. We know what it sounds like. What new do you hope to gain by reading it?

sometimes reading too much into a product just deters you from buying it, now I am under the impression that the bass is not there, as for me I need at least a bas as in the audio technica m50, but with better sound stage and better mids and high, but not highs and mids that hurt the ear. I love to find a headphone that gives a mellow effect when listening as if in a 3d environment

The AD definitely doesn't have the same level of bass impact as the M50; in fact, nor does the MD. I think you're looking in the wrong places.

Great thing it does not have the same level of bass as the M50!

 

In my opinion, I consider the M50 a basshead can. I can only enjoy them for 10-20 minutes before getting irritated/tired with all that bass.

 

 The Alphas seem to fit my sound signature preferences much better in that matter.

I agree with this. While I would hate to deter people away from a can if they like bass, I much prefer the cleanness of bass of the MD and I am pretty sure the AD (just hate to comment on something I have not tried yet). While the ATH M50s were awesome when I could not afford the better gear. I really find the bass overpowering now, and a little sickening. There are so many other options if you want a bassy can though.

I can't comment here from experience - haven't heard the M50 - gotta do that, it is sort of a roadmap can - one that frequently comes up when describing other headphones.  Kinda as Grado and Sennheiser do.

I find the Alpha's the least fatiguing of any closed can.  That is hard to do - a closed headphone just has so much opportunity for resonance, peaks, etc. that they can easily be fatiguing.

Alpha is clean, slightly dark of dead neutral.  MD is a bit darker, with a bit more low/mid bass presence.  Neither is really a bass-head can to my ears.

 

Basshead - ??? (elsewhere)

Fun, along the lines of the Denon (AHD 2k, 5k, 7k) triplets - MD

Clean, neutral, touch dark - AD
