Depends on where you use your headphone, IMHO a closed vs a open should never be a direct comparison. Its like asking, which is better a Lamborghini Gallardo or a Honda Pilot, they are two different car, the gallardo is fun but I bet you cant haul a family or anything big in there.

Just in case the AD is the Honda, you must mean this one...

I agree. The AD is fast, less beefy and clear like that blue...

alright you guys taking it way out of context but I would say the HD800 is the Lamboghini and the AD is the Honda pilot lol its more practical to use.

 

lets be honest you cannot use the HD800 in anywhere but the comfort of your own home. With the AD you can bring it anywhere, granted you look like a moron, but you own a very good closed back headphone that rival most expensive closed headphone and even open back.

My Alpha Dog just rocked up, looking forward to doing some listening tonight.

Can't speak for the LCD-2, but the HE-500 and AD are both good with price to performance. Different flavors, if you will, but I find the AD to be a slightly better all-rounder (certainly more comfortable) than the HE-500 w/ jerg pads. Your tastes and needs may vary, of course. The open-back nature of the HE-500 can be a problems for some. It's hard to really go wrong with either. The HE-500 does sound pretty good with the alpha pads as well, but the headband still isn't super great.

Funny, I read more good comments about the Alpha + Liquid Glass than about Alpha + Liquid Gold !

Is the Alpha + Liquid Glass offering à better synergie despite the Gold being their TOL ? ?

Other question: anyone tested the Alpha direct out the HUGO's amp ? Good synergy ?

Dan is going around demoing the ADs with the Liquid Glass. The LG is an incredible amp. It had an absolutely black background that none of the other tube amps at the meet could match. The music came out of nowhere with startling "next to you" type feeling. Well done tubes just inject a sort richness that is difficult to duplicate otherwise. I'm sure the Liquid Gold is a brilliant amp, I just haven't heard it.

We got 2-3 weeks behind in delivery as we made the transition to gloss black from Matte, so we're around 6 weeks right now.  

 

The good news is we have our in house paint shop running and producing beautiful parts, and our external vendor is online so our capacity is increasing.  I'll be heading out to Axpona Thursday and since I test and fine tune the units before they ship, this will mean we have a short shipping week.  I will try to get all Alphas ordered by March 15 out before I leave Thursday, but if we don't get them before I leave we will have a large number shipping Tuesday of next week and by the end of next week our plan is to be at least to March 26 orders.

 

We expect to be at or below 4 weeks sometime next week.  Thanks for your patience!
