Compared to many of my other headphones, when I run frequency sweeps (using a free ipad app), my AD's don't really have much by way of peaks and valleys in the trebles, but I still look forward to giving the "treats" a try.  Thanks again for offering this Dan and for the very helpful video demonstrating how to install them!

 

 

Hey Skeptic, I almost hate to ask this, but how do the AD's compare to your HD800's regarding transparency and 'natural' sound?

Don't have too expensive AK240 but tried Alpha Dogs with stock AK100 and RWAK100 and think that RWAK100 has just enough power to drive Alpha Dogs without boost (will not recommend to use one since it boosts bass too, not just volume)

I hope that the AK240, from its BALANCED 2,5mm jack out, will be much more powerfull than the RWAK100....

 

But still, besides the output power, there is also the question of "synergy".

 

this is why a listening report of  AK240>AlphaDog  will be welcomed :-)

The synergy between RWAK100 is here for sure otherwise I wouldn't spend over 2 hours to achieve sound I'm after, the issue for me is comfort but DIYer can fix it

Sorry I meant comfort. The issue is that I have small head and because of this comfort strap installed is to long it almost touching Fostex headband so the fix is to make it shorter so that weight is destributed evenly instead of one spot

I have not read any post or comments about upgrades lately.  I signed up for the upgrade on 10/15/2013 and have not heard or received anything.  Does anyone have any information about the upgrade list or how much longer it may take?  Just want to make sure I don't miss my window for upgrade.  Thanks for the information/assistance.

I signed up for the upgrade the day it was made available and mine are currently off to MrSpeakers to get the upgrade. I believe it was 9/27 when the sign up list was made available.

I signed up for the upgrade the first morning it was available. I received the go ahead email on 3/13, and sent them off to Mr. Speakers the following morning.

Just got my upgrade notice yesterday, so it is progressing. The email said to expect 2 weeks at the dog pound.

I received my Alpha Dogs on Friday and I have tried them with both my head-fi rig (Audio-GD NFB-12 dac and Schiit Lyr amp) and main system (Teac UD-501 dac and Luxman L-550AX amp) and I must say these things are fantastic.  I bought a balanced pair and am using them with a Moon Audio Black Dragon balanced to 1/4" adapter cable.  They compare favorably to my Vienna Acoustics Beethoven Baby Grand SE main speakers.  Fit and finish are top-notch.

 

I am going on a road trip for two weeks and these are coming with me (along with the Lyr) so they will gets lots of listening time. If you are on the fence about buying a pair just do yourself a favor and get them.  You won't be disappointed.  Well done MrSpeakers!

Does the choice in cable that they ship with have any effect on the sound?

 

Have been looking at these today and have noticed that you can buy them with 4 pin XLR or 1/4" cable.

 

At the moment I have a Schiit M&M stack so I'm guessing that the 1/4" cable is the way to go just curious as to how/if the sound would change.

 

Towards the end of the year I will probably be buying a new amp so will one or the other restrict me in regards to this?

 

Cheers,

I have both the 1/4 and the XLR; I didn't notice a significant difference.  I'm listening on a ALO International (I don't have a desktop rig..yet), so YMMV.  I *do* plan to get a nice custom cable, though, to address some of the microphonics of the stock cables.

Ahh okay I will probably pickup the 1/4" terminated cable.

 

Now just to decide if my wallet can take the pain/ what colour to get :wink_face:
