    Mr. Speakers Mad Dog 3.0 - 3.2 Amp Pairing Recommendation/Discussion Thread

    Is it likely that I would get a warmer sound out of my MD3.2 from a Schiit Vali compared to the headphone amp in an Essence STX card? I've been comparing a Fiio E10 and the Essence STX and while the E10 definitely doesn't sound as good it gives the MD3.2 a much warmer sound which I definitely...

    new akg k323 xs

    Just got a pair of these, have to say I'm impressed so far. Only thing I'm a bit worried about I guess would be build quality, they seem sturdy and well-made but they are also tiny so I bet the cables will give out soon enough.

    Mr. Speakers Mad Dog 3.0 - 3.2 Amp Pairing Recommendation/Discussion Thread

    Yeah, I've even looked at the E12 myself. Most likely one of the better choices for a portable amp at that price. Let's just leave it at that? :)

    Pretty sure there is a separate thread for Alpha Dog.

      Thankfully we're all here for the headphones and not the spelling, and you are amazing at making headphones! :D

    **MrSpeakers Mad Dog: Impressions and Discussion Thread**

      Just thought I shoud let you know, only have the E10 for a few days so I have to run the Mad Dog trough it. After discovering Linux had suddenly put the volume at 46% I now only need to run it at around 2-3 on volume. It definitely does not sound as good as from an STX though, but at least...

    **MrSpeakers Mad Dog: Impressions and Discussion Thread**

      The best part in my opinion is that they work so well with everything I've thrown at them. No genre I've listened to so far has been disappointing on them. From bass-heavy dubstep, rap, trance to piano music to classical music to rock, whatever I feed them comes back out in amazing quality...

    **MrSpeakers Mad Dog: Impressions and Discussion Thread**

    Tried them on my Fiio E10 that I have for my laptop, I'm actually really impressed at how well they run from this little thing. I do have the gain at high and volume knob at max, but it doesn't sound noticeably worse than my Essence STX and the bass boost makes the lower end very nice.  ...

      This track: http://open.spotify.com/track/0ehoKu1X3cwKz9LdAaBWxH   Not sure what word to use (Recessed?) as English is not my first language and even then I don't know that many terms when it comes to sound, but it feels almost the same as when my DSP desktop speaker system clips from too...

      They are pretty damn amazing! Spent countless hours just listening to music I was previously bored of, only one track so far has sounded quite weird on them.

    Shipping from the US to Norway must have bee like 1 working day (Crossed the sea over the weekend) but now customs need info so it will probably take ages. Really hope they get here soon, I can't wait!   Hope they won't be disappointing being driven off my Xonar Essence STX. Definitely will...

    No worries, Dan! Got the tracking number and all, just wondering what it meant. I've heard a lot of weird stuff about USPS tracking. I have no doubt that you have done your part. :)   We do have some hifi-websites that have some events once in a while. I can't say I've ever been to one, not...

      Doubt mine will arrive that quickly, they are going all the way to Norway. I chose express shipping though, hope it's worth it.

    Thanks for the good info! Definitely will have to play around a bit, I hope they will impress me as much as I think they will. :D   Dan, saw my headphones were shipped today, awesome! Getting this message when I try to track the shipment though: Guessing it's just a bit early to try...

    So when I get them I might want to let them play for an hour or two to loosen them up a bit? Good to know that if I am disappointed at first, it might still get better.

    DT770 Bass rattle

    So I searched for this issue again and surprisingly I found quite a bit of info this time while having found nothing when searching earlier.   Firstly I tried giving the right ear some slaps as described in a thread on here, seems to have improved it but there's still rattle.   Secondly...

    "Mad Dog" by MrSpeakers, modified Fostex T50RP review

    Yeah, Dan seems like a very good guy. Obviously you can't blindly trust someone who's trying to sell a product but he seems very honest about his product and doesn't try to sell it as something it isn't. Even now that my Beyers seem fine again I still quite want a pair of Mad Dog Alphas. :p

    "Mad Dog" by MrSpeakers, modified Fostex T50RP review

    So I opened up my beyers, blew some dust away from the terminal area and put them back together and they seem to magically be fixed, strange...   Anyways, I still doubt that the issue could all be because of dust and the signal on the right side seems to not be perfect. If(/when) the issue...

    Not sure if my soundcard is a proper source for the Mad Dog's though but I guess I'll have to worry about that later. How can you people have the money for head-fi?! :p

    "Mad Dog" by MrSpeakers, modified Fostex T50RP review

    Think I'm convinced now, Mad Dog Alpha's might be my next pair of headphones! :) The chance of a bit less bass punch seems like a worth tradeoff compared to all the other places where the Mad Dog's absolutely trash the Beyers.   Yeah I doubt it will be hard selling them at at most a...

    Upgrading, need some help

    Almost tempted to just go for a new pair of DT770's, maybe 250Ohm this time. :p Anyone know what the Pro LTD version is? Costs a bit more than Pro.

    Quote: Yeah really love the STX, with UNi Xonar drivers it's pretty amazing. :) Quote:   Hmm, thought that mostly meant that they leak a lot of sound, which would not be a problem. Definitely want something that is good at blocking out background noise when I listen to music. Noice...

    Upgrading, need some help

    Well I am definitely happy with my soundcard so if I can get by without an amp then that's only positive. :)   Are the HE-400 good at blocking out background noice?
