You should get a notice on email or the website that gives you that information. I am 2321 and have gotten my tracking, but the number is not activated by USPS yet

Received my "defective" coloring Alpha-Dog.

 

Perfect sound!  I prefer it over my mad dogs.

 

Might write a review.  Stellar improvement Dan.

Congrats!

Just a word of warning, don't get the Qinpu A-6000 MKII for this headphone. I already owned and it was hoping to drive my ADs with them and it distorts at a very low volume.

 

I have just ordered an Asgard 2 per Dan's advice. (He recommended I also check out the Project Ember amp)

 

I wanted to ask if you guys think my Fiio e17 (as DAC only) is significantly holding back my setup.

Did not know I could rotate the pads !  I will try to work on the seal to see if I can reduce leaking...

 

Also I found that the connector of the Left cup do not "click" like the Right Cup does.  One very sharply click when I insert the cable while with the other I need to manually push the outer ring in the lock position ti get it locked.  And this hapend with booth cables (I ordered 2 cables: 1 balanced XLR and one SE 1/4 jack). And if I reverse Left-Right cable, it is still the Left cup that do not click.  So I definitively have somethinh wrong with the conector of the Left Cup.  

 

Once the cable is engaged and locked-in, everything is fine and do not disturb the listening, but...

 

Anyone else experienced this ?

 If it locks but doesn't click, there's probably a little extra paint inside the jack; it should wear over time and the click will occur, but as long as you're locking there's no practical effect.

What sound pressure levels are you listening at?  If you don't know you should check in case you're damaging your hearing.

I have developed habit of progressively reducing sound levels, which conversely results in hearing becoming more sensitive.

High sound pressure levels cause your ears to respond by limiting their sensitivity, which is similar to dynamic compression.

I will take your advice into consideration. May be I listen to loud ...

Compared to a better amp, a better DAC will probably give a more subtle change, but there's a good bit of room for improvement coming from the E17 if you want to get closer to maxing out what the AD can do.

+1  More people who listen to music, especially with hp's, should heed this advice.

These Alpha Dogs are truly awesome headphones! The mind boggles when you consider that they started out as a T50RP. Dan really made a silk purse out of a sows ear :beerchug:

 

I love the balance and neutrality but I really also love how they still provide the essence, energy and vibrancy of the music....nothing is suppressed or exaggerated, and there are no hi-fi sonic cartwheels that distract you from your music enjoyment.

 

For those on a $600 budget who have adequate amplification on hand, this might be your "final" headphone......it truly provides happiness.

I hope paired with the Vali, the Alpha Dogs will make a good combination.
