I've never been much of a writer but I’ll give it a shot. Mids on both phones are neutral. The x1 sort of takes a backstage due to its bass and since they are so wide in soundstage they never really stand out. The Alphas Dogs take the cake on the treble though. They are very accurate and just sound more "right to me" especially when I’m using FLAC files on my home setup.

 

Now the tricky part is explaining the soundstage. X1 being an open can the positioning is very wide. Pin pointing footsteps using CMSS-3D in FPS games it was very easy to pick up how far my opponents were. In fact I was pretty blown away when I heard helicopters fly above my head using the elevation filters as I’ve never experienced that before. The Alpha Dog is a closed headphone and things seem closer playing the same game (BF4 helicopters don't sound farther away during flybys). Don't get me wrong though as this is widest I’ve heard from a closed back headphone coming from HD280 pros that I used for 7 years. It really does fool you that it feels like an open can and I can live with the lower amount of space due to the passive noise isolation it delivers (Noisy Gaming rig with a ton of cooling fans and overclocked video cards).

Thanks, that is helpful. I have listened to AKG712 today and quite liked the sound stage on them. It felt much more precise compared to X1. Vocal also seemed a tad closer and mids overall had bigger resolution. These are a few things I really would like to have in a next headphones.

 

But ... AKGs are open and I need closed. Was thinking about TH600 but I need good isolation.

 

Can someone share a quick comparison with AKG712? AD are almost double price of 712 and triple price of X1. I have to buy blindly so I hope it would be an upgrade ... I will keep X1 - they are good for variety of genres, especially for funk (here 712 felt a bit short), acid jazz and similar.

 

I would need another pair more suitable for acoustic music - jazz and classical in particular. I hope AD would do well here.

I wonder about STAX SRS-3170. How much better is it from Alpha Dogs (driven by Pan Am)...

Any one want to sell me a spare set of Doggie Treats?  I only need one disc per side for another mod project I am doing on a set of T50-RP.

 

Thanks.

  In the brief listen I had to the Alpha Dogs, they sounded quite similar to my 702 Anniversaries which should be pretty similar to the 712's. The bass might have been a little better than the AKG's. I compared the AD's to the Shure 1540's and the LCD-XC and actually preferred the AD's to both

Hm, that sounds fine to me. The only thing is the price ... I guess you pay a lot to get good sound with good isolation.
