I use SPL meters (Rat Shack for loudspeakers & iPad app for headphones) to set volume listening range around 80- 85 dB max peaks.

just run a sound pressure level test on "Fade to Black" at the level that sounded just right and it peaked at 84dB

My workplace requires hearing protection if noise levels meet or exceed 85 dB. I used this as a maximum listening level maybe 15 yrs. ago. I also use ear plugs when mowing, leaf blowing, around loud machinery, etc.. I wish that I had been more proactive in protecting my ears prior to this, but better late than never ...

I agree with others that the Alpha Dogs retrieve inner detail so well, that lower listening levels are adequate & moderate listening levels are "perfecto" for kicking out the jams. cool.gif

Six more weeks to go (hopefully)...

I'd think your 6 weeks will really be more like 3 to 4 at this point. Unless you're getting the matte black option.

Another one of my favorite albums. I will make a note to play that early on once my ADs are here.

If you had a fiio x5, would that be enough to drive these headphones, or would you need an separate amp?

 

The only amp I have at present is the dragonfly, not sure if that is good enough for these headphones?

It does an okay job I think, but it's not an optimal pairing. I think the X5 shares similarities with the E12 amp, so my experiences with the E12 and the Alpha Dog are similar to that with the X5.

so i could have been listening to them the last 11 days, but...yikes!

 

following up on a lost dog...

 

i went to the post office this morning to inquire about this supposed delivery on feb. 03. all they could tell me was that something was delivered - a first class package. hmmm, that's odd. first class packages in the USA are for items 13 ounces or less. the ADs weigh more than that.

 

so i came home, emailed dan at mrspeakers to let him know what happened. literally a minute after sending the email, the postman comes and drops off a box from mrspeakers - my ADs. however, a totally different tracking no. than the one dan gave me last friday. and the shipping label was created on Feb. 07, after the supposed earlier package was delivered on Feb. 03. 

 

dan sent me the wrong tracking no. for a pair of adapters i had bought separately, so that's where the mixup was...in the end, the ADs are now in my possession. bad thing is, i have to make my balanced to 1/4" adapter before i can listen to them as i only have SE amps at the moment.

 

one piece of advice: dan said that he cannot send out shipping notices unless you use Paypal. i paid via credit card and did not receive a shipping notice, which partly led to this confusion. i think he's looking at fedex and some other shipping methods to help alleviate this problem...so for those of you who are about to make a purchase, make sure you use paypal if possible.

I have absolute HAD IT with the USPS.  For the first two years they were great, but we've had almost a dozen packages that were two weeks late without explanation and no tracking updates and two lost packages (fortunately cables) in just the last month or so.  USPS doesn't answer the phone anymore, either.   I was on hold for 2.5 hours today before I simply had to hang up.   I wanted to use USPS, but it is becoming untenable.

 

We're going to turn on Fedex this week and we've got good rates.  It's not yet clear if the notifications for the system will be more reliable, but I have verified the integration is working to get accurate shipping rates so we're getting closer.

 

For notifications, we use PayPal for all our payment processing and shipping, but the problem is if you register at www.mrspeakers.com with an email that is not in use at PayPal they won't send a shipping notice.  If you use a credit card and an email registered with PayPal they do send a notice.  I call that a bug, they say it's a feature, and that it won't be changed.  This may not change when we add Fedex, this is something we're working on.

thanks for the update, dan. too bad USPS is stinking it up...

 

fyi, i paid for my ADs via credit card and used an email address that's registered with Paypal. but i did not receive a notice. so that's not working, either. for the adapters i bought a couple weeks ago i did use paypal and the notice was sent fine. thanks.
