Here are some initial impressions about my "new toy"

- Confort is excellent. Even better than my TH900: it's like having 2 big pillow around your head :-)

- Isolation is not as good as I expected: people around still can hear what I am listening to frown.gif   !  This is unfortunate because Isolation was the main reason while I needed an extra Headphone besides my TH900.  Of course it isolate better than the TH-900 but still way less than my Roxane IEMs or my wife's Focal spirit One.  So…in bed I will still have to use my IEMs or the Focal Spirit One if I want to listen while my wife sleep…

- Efficiency : Not as good as the TH900 (or a LCD-X that is VERY efficient for a planar: almost as efficient as my TH-900 !!), but still the HUGO can drive it without problem: I am using most of the time dark-blue level, and I never go above purple.

- Sound: Very good but so far I still prefer my TH-900. Less "fun".  But here may be it is to soon to give a good opinion: My AlphaDOG has only 20 hours while the TH-900 is fully break-in since many months…
-->  Has someone experienced sound signature or quality improvement with break-in ? 


Anyway, it is a wonderful Headphone ...

I listen to my dogs in bed next to my sleeping girlfriend fairly often and she has not punched me yet, might need to rotate the pads to achieve a better seal maybe?

Doing that now.........what a wonderfully balanced and natural sounding headphone! Wonder how they will sound after being run-in for a while

 

Oh...also beautiful-looking and comfortable:smile: and you can smell the freshly built quality.

Build quality and looks match the sound. Having both is a win win :) 

 

I think the mids, vocal imaging, and smooth treble is what makes these sound so natural. Also they don't sound boxed in like a lot of closed headphones do.

 

I'm glad I waited for the black ones. I've been following the Alpha Dogs since September of last year. I would have traded the red ones for black ones any day of the week.

You're right. They sound like music occurring in an open room.

So should we get a notice or something?  Still showing processing on #2304.  They are getting shipped to my office so being able to track the order is important, due to my receiving department.

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

Good to know, thanks.

Received my "defective" coloring Alpha-Dog.

 

Perfect sound!  I prefer it over my mad dogs.

 

Might write a review.  Stellar improvement Dan.

Pictures or it didn't happen!

 

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.
