Makes me really appreciate what Dan has been able to do with the technology and incredibly good pricing on the Alpha Dogs!!!

But it also makes me curious what he could do if he had the resources to design his own driver.

 

The 560's are probably the best can I've ever heard, although the AD's are in the same league.

I'm hoping he is working on a completely open mad dog.

Yep- smoothed things quite nicely!

I did the same thing with my HE-6...:atsmile:

Good to hear because I'll also have both within the next few days. I'm more excited about receiving the Alpha Dogs for some reason. If only customs would release them.

The bass on these headphones is just jaw dropping. Everything sounds so separated even on this hip-hop track from Three 6 Mafia I am listening to in FLAC.  The slam just sits right below the rest of the sound without breaking separation even with the deepest 808 lows. The bass isn't the kind that shakes the earpads, it's the super clean kind that you feel air moving from the ortho pushing with authority.

 

EDIT: This is coming from a guy who owns 2 12'' subwoofers. One for my car, one for my house :]

I would gladly buy a open mad dog. I am still in awe at how great the alpha dogs sound, especially for a set of closed headphone. A open ended MrSpeakers headphone would greatly please the audiophile with in me.

I would buy a set too, I hope they can make a Reference product that can take on the Top 5 for about the same as the MD's or MD Pros

should we start a new thread - New Open MrSpeakers Headphones who wants one? if the community get behind this maybe they might do it 

post #7856 of 8341

I'm pretty sure that I've read that making an open fostex mod is considerably harder than the closed versions - there don't seem to be too many DIY jobs of those around.

well they could switch driver types to say Grado with their own custom cups, frame and cables and paint especially paint, love the AD's finish

post #7858 of 8341

Have been listening to AD for a while, and for me (having also Fidelio X1) excels with classical and vocal centric music. But ... the biggest gripe is the weight. I listen while I work, and while the difference between X1 and AD don't seem much on paper in real life feels a bit different. My question is for recommendation for similar sound signature to AD ... in open type headphone (I don't need closed cans so much, but wouldn't mind if they would be lighter). It could be a bit warmer also (AD with dots are still a bit bright for me), but just a bit ... I want to keep it for classical and acoustic/vocal stuff.

Maybe Grado (I fear they could be to bright) or Hifiman 400i?

Grado will be too bright/aggressive - not really alike to the Alpha Dog. HD600 seems like a reasonable option if comfort is desired. Haven't heard a 400i to comment. HE500 is just as heavy/bulky as AD. 

post #7860 of 8341

yep the 600/650/700 more comfortable however, for me the 600/650 were lacking in detail at the top end. HD 700 were better than the 600/650 but much too expensive (700 should not be more than 550 to 600 USD). that is why i bought the ADs. the Grados were very detailed but I did not have a long session yet with them so cannot say if they are harsh in general or just with poor source material.
