I finally received my repaired Alpha Dogs back from Mr. Speakers today.
Several days after initially receiving them, i noticed a weird distortion/vibration in the right cup.
The strange thing was it was only apparent on some songs, and intensified as the volume was increased.
I sent it back to Dan at Mr. Speakers and initially he was unable to track down the issue. He was ready to send me a brand new pair of Alpha Dogs, until he finally found the issue.
Here is what he sent me:
"We were worried we couldn't track it down so we tried again. Turns out it was the wires on the driver were bent "just so" and would vibrate, so you'll get your phones back, with the tuning dots installed. We've adjusted how we bend them to avoid this in the future."
So basically, he solved the issue on my Alpha's and figured how to prevent it in the future. Dan was also kind enough to include the new "Doggie Treats" Tweaking Kit for free!!
Needless to say, Mr. Speakers has amazing service and I wouldn't hesitate to do business with them again.
Sounds amazing with the tuning kit installed and paired with my Norse Audio Norn 8 Wire Balanced cable.
*Note the cable is a darker brown than it appears, the LED flash on my GS3 just drowns it out.
