MrSpeakers Alpha Dog Revealed! - The World's First Production 3D-Printed Headphones - Page 443

post #6631 of 8754


I have had the Alpha Dogs for a few months I find they "Shine" on some cuts and a "Flat Box sound" on some cuts.

Amps used are Ha Info,Darkvoice and Yulong A28 (balance) DAC Yulong D100II.

Also pair it with my commute rig DX-50 and C&C BH2.

Do you notice a SQ difference or is it more snake oil than anything? I understand the microphonics, looks and ergonomics but paying over $200 seems unreasonable when the cable that comes with it is good

Interesting.  Where did you buy the adapters?

The plug is available to cable manufacturers at www.evalucon.com, and the part number is SN-8-4(P).  We will have these available for purchase on our site begining October 9, 2013.

They were also made by Steve Eddy at Q-Audio.

OK, thank you,  I suppose sending them an email is in order.  :)

Has anyone tried the AD with the Vali? I like the design of the AD more and want a nice all-rounder closed headphones with a little bass kick. I heard the mad dog pros are excellent with the vali and I assume it's all the same with mdoded t50rp but I've heard the ADs are harder to drive or don't bring out the best of the ADs with the vali? Can anyone add to this?

I listen to my Alpha Dog with my Vali sometimes. It's a very good pairing and I recommend it (even if I prefer good pure solid state).

Ok, that's relieving. Would it be worth on investing for another amp? I just don't want to fork out $500+ for like a soloist sl. Considering I also just got the vali.

V2 allows you to add, I could go balance RSO/ALO ect. Go to image and you can see what the V2 can do.

SQ depend on the Amp.

Are there any other options under $700 closed headphones that compare the the ADs before I get these I would like to see every option available. Also is there a video out there that can show the sound leakage of the ADs?

Fostex TH600 are around that mark I believe, don't know how they compare.

trust me dude, there are none as comfy, good sounding and better value, I been looking for a while. if you dont want to fork 600 then you could always try the MD or MDP to see if you like it.

 

dont feel like you have to buy it, I feel like you being pressure to buy it. This phone isnt for everyone, bass head will not like the sound. It gave me enough bass but someone who love rap and hard hard bass wont like it as much.
