I believe he said there will be 3 demo models.

Thanks

With 3D printing it's also possible to create cavities which cannot really be made with other means.

Wow.. Sounds like an exciting new technology!

Everything is going 3D printing. Like EVERYTHING.

Even though I just bought a new pair of headphones, I really am considering the Alpha Dogs.


If anyone demos a unit, please write your impressions about the soundstage!  Would be nice to have the isolation of a closed headphone.

Wow... That video feels like an advertisement! Made it sound like the next BEST headphone in the world! Haha

He is supposed to be there with the new Alpha Dog in tow (along with a Mjolnir and iBasso PB2 I think).

Wow, color me intrigued. I have a feeling these may be an early purchase for me. I absolutely love my Mad Dogs, and instead of sending them for the 3.2 upgrade this may be the better option. Can't wait to see the reviews.

Wow, the cat is way out of the bag. I guess it is now ok to disclose that I was one of a group that got a couple of days with a beta pair. All I can say is, you've seen Jude's video, and yes,

They are absolutely that good! I have pre-ordered...

A comparison with the Paradox would be most interesting, as Luis had gone for a neutral presentation, and that is what appears to be the case with the Alpha Dog headphones. Will be interesting to hear what peoples' experiences are who listen to them at the meet.....

The Alpha Dog is, to my ears, the best sounding fully closed headphone I have here--and I have a lot of headphones here.

When we attribute a sense of openness to a fully closed headphone, it's almost always with the for a closed headphone qualifier thrown in. To me, the Alpha Dog presents with openness, period.

And, again, this is essentially a fully closed headphone, not a semi-closed one. The qualities this headphone possesses--speed, neutrality, openness--are, in my experience, not common traits (especially all together) to expect from a fully closed headphone.

So if you sensed enthusiasm from me in the video, it's only because I'm enthusiastic.

Using a set screw to modify how the housing is ported is an interesting idea.
