MrSpeakers Alpha Dog Revealed! - The World's First Production 3D-Printed Headphones - Page 560

post #8386 of 8397

I just listened to "Elderly Woman Behind the Counter In a Small Town" by Pearl Jam.  That is the song that goes "hearts and thoughts they fade.. fade away" for those who didn't recognize the song by its abnormally long title.

 

So awesome to listen to through the Alpha Dogs!!!

 

It's going to be hard to upgrade to the Prime when I'm already loving these headphones too much!!! This Saturday I will finally get to demo them!

Looks like there is one upgrade spot left (under mad dog to alpha prime upgrade) - maybe email/PM Mr Speakers to see if you can take that last spot?  He switched around the upgrade slots earlier as the AD upgrades were the first to run out.

I've really been putting the Alpha Dogs through a workout the past few days, in preparation for their upgrade to the Primes.  I've been listening to a lot of stuff, from Anna Calvi's first album, some Fionna Apple, Tori Amos and some Cowboy Junkies.  I just got done with Procupine Tree's Fear of a Blank Plant, which is my most beloved recording of the past 10 years.

 

If I had never heard the Hifiman HE-560 or the 400i's, I seriously doubt the Dogs would have gathered dust for the past few months.  Especially with the Porcupine Tree material, their ability to render complex recordings with depth and control is pretty amazing.

 

I really wonder just how much the Primes can improve things...

I heard the Primes  at RMAF and I'm sure you will be happy! I was thinking about upgrading my AD's but I am too much of a completist, so will order new  Primes in November...  My AD's sound great with a Vanquish cable...

I'm a fan of Porcupine Tree as well and feel the A-Dogs totally deliver the goods. No intent to upgrade to the Primes as I've gone down that path before and felt I've exceeded the point of diminishing returns. Sold 2 pair of Stax Omegas and amps a while back feeling that my well-amped LCD-2 filled the bill just fine. Same with HD 650 vs HD 800. Too much increase in resolution exposes the recording's nasties and destroys the illusion.

Good thing the isolation is great, otherwise you'd hear your tummy rumbling. :D

Huh. I thought the rumbling was really good bass!

I understand exactly what you saying. I have just one Stax headphone left. Just read my last review on the Alpha Prime and the issue I had with guitar music on the Stax.

It was my ears that won the debate fortunately and I am on limited income but found a way for my first headphone from Mr.Speakers.
