For Sale:
Mad Dog V3.2 w/ Alpha Pads - Chicago - $250

Will Ship To: CONUS

FS: A pair of Mad Dog V3.2 w/ Alpha Pads (I ordered the pair on May 20th 2013 so they should be the latest revision). Will ship anywhere in US (price includes shipping)

Condition: The headphones are in great condition. I am the one and only owner and have only used these headphones for home use. When I first received the headphones, I burned them in for around 50 hours by playing pink and brown noise through them. I put in another 50+ hours of listening on them as well, so they are nice and broken in. These come with the stock cables, the v-moda cables, and a velour carrying pouch. Here's some photos (sorry for the ****ty quality, it's from my camera phone): http://imgur.com/a/Q9ORt [1]

Some quick thoughts on these headphones:

  • Why am I selling? I upgraded to the HiFiMAN HE-500 and no longer listen to these headphones anymore. It's as simple as that.

  • A headphone amp is required. You need some power to drive these (they are planar magnetics after all), my Schiit Modi/Magni stack was good enough.

  • These are incredibly comfy. Probably the comfiest pair of headphones I've owned.

  • Don't expect these to sound like open headphones. They do have a wider soundstage than what you'd expect from closed headphones, but they do not rival the soundstage of an open headphone. But, they do a good job of isolating sound so that you can use these and not disturb people (although the lambskin leather does leak out some noise)

  • If you're a basshead, you're probably better off with another set of headphones. The bass isn't bad, but it's definitly not going to give you a nice bass slam if that's what you're after.

  • Overall, I was very happy with these headphones. At the price range, you're not going to find much better. 

  • You can upgrade these to the "Alpha Dogs" for $300. I don't know if Mr. Speakers is doing upgrades yet, but he should be taking orders soon: https://www.mrspeakers.com/index.php?route=product/category&path=69[2]

Let me know if you want more pics or have any questions.
