Are you allowed to order the Alpha Dog without the stand for a slightly lower price? I really don't care for the sheet metal type design and it's not even big enough for the headphones so I'd rather not have to pay for it and just have it sitting around in the box unused.

My guess is no. Pretty sure Dan offers them at the best price he can. Worth asking either way.
What you might consider is selling the stand, using it for different pair of headphones, or repurposing it.

Eh, it's probably not worth a lot so it's not like I'd be paying a great deal for it. Probably just keep it in the box, I guess. I wouldn't mind getting a Sieveking headphone stand.

The Sieveking is nice. But at 180 beans it's a ripoff. I bought a knock off on the bay from China. I paid around 50 bucks and you can hardly tell the difference. It gets the job done.

post #7312 of 7948

Yeah, I know. I can get the Zebrano or Walnut (I like those two best) for $160 but it's a hell of a lot for what it is. I probably won't even bother with a headphone stand, really. I only want one desktop headphone, and when it's not in use I just rest it next to my keyboard like so:

So, my cable is in the box, never used, he could do the same thing you suggest with the cable, I don't like the sound with the stock cable.....and I would also like different pads, they get warm, I'd like velours!  My point is, for $600 you have a headphone that sounds like a headphone up to 3 times it's price.......well worth the asking price in my opinion, a fair package deal!

Both the MD and AD are, IMO, the best bang for buck in their respective class. 

post #7316 of 7948
Well I see that as kind of different, since you absolutely need a cable and earpads to use the headphone. Headphone stands are a much more optional accessory. And I really do think a headphone stand that can't hold the headphone it's designed for with it's cables plugged in is a pretty worthless addition in my opinion.

But I do agree that it is a great value headphone package, I can deal with an unused headphone stand.

It be a good thing the alpha dogs are now pedigreed, for it shows how marvellous these cans are to behold.smily_headphones1.gif

What other headphones do you put in their "class"?  I think for the AD price, they would be very hard to beat until you spend more that $1000!

The addition of the foam pad to hold the headphones up helps with this.

I thought the AD were a little too bright until I placed 1 Dog Treat in each cup so based on that what aftermarket cable do you guys recommend for them?
