If the change will be to the tuning but not the outer design we can start to compile notes on what we think of the design and style anyway, plus we will have an idea of the sound as well. I may also add some dampening to get an approximation of the final sound.

Not sure if I have the Acero as I have not received my package but if I do I would like the final product if possible just so I am giving an accurate depiction of their sound.

In any case I hope to have a package waiting for me when I get home smily_headphones1.gif. They are supposed to be out for delivery smily_headphones1.gifsmily_headphones1.gif

It would be like us reviewing stock T50RP's and then someone receiving Mad Dogs as a final product.

I'll get some Paxmate and report on the differences, but I'd be surprised if the difference was as radical as a stock T50RP and a Mad Dog.

 

Though this does give me a few ideas. I wonder how much these will respond to modding if such a simple mod makes them so much better.

If the difference are really huge, perhaps, we can do the mod on our own to reduce cost? Should be easy to mod I guess? I believe everyone have got the experience to do minor modding eh?

I don't find the bass to be loose thought but I do agree with sub-bass and the midrange near the upper region.

My only problem with that is that we'd probably each use a different type of damping material and create a slightly different sound so our impressions would be slightly different.

In fact guys. I know the powers that be will not thank me for this. ...but I am going to send you all new units.

 

These will be the final sound sig,  the other small tweaks will go into next cycle.

 

As pointed out it would be wrong to test this way and expect you guys to mod.

 

This way I guess you can see what we have done and changed etc.

 

Apologies to those that have already tested, but we just want the best for everyone and the end consumer.

 

Is everyone ok with this?

That's fine with me... Decent of you to do so.

Sure, thanks!  Do you want the old unit back to update?

 

Cheers!

Thank you for the kindness Bob.

 

Just to say that my package was received yesterday (Monday) afternoon, when it was posted out from the UK on Friday, absolutely amazing service I must say...
