Talking about tuning. I seriously can't tell a difference between disks or no disks.
i am a little doubtful i'll be able to tell much, i'm not sure i hear all that well at the upper frequencies , i'm old !
I'm old(er. I lived "that 70's Show" in the 70's) as well, but I've always been sensitive to upper octave brightness. Disks and dots work for me.
i think my hearing is pretty good, i know when i like what i'm hearing ! lol
i had the bell bottoms and platform shoes, and converse chuck taylors were about the only sneakers !
I'm also treble sensitive and prefer darker high frequencies. They dots and disk make a big difference to my ability to wear the AD for longer sessions.
When I first got the Alpha Dog three weeks ago, I noticed immediately that they had a sonic 'glare' about them -- trumpets in particular were emphasized and sounded zingy at times. I was coming from the LCD-2v2, so I figured I would give them a few days to see if my hearing would adjust.
About three days later, I noticed the four Doggie Treats discs in the box. I found Dan's YouTube video and learned how to install them. Then, it was like Goldilocks.
No discs on each side (stock in my case) -- too bright.
Two discs on each side -- too dark and muffled.
One disc on each side -- just right.
I've been using one disc per earcup since and couldn't be happier.
I was also at the Dallas meet last weekend and brought the Alpha Dog. It was well received. People were amazed when they heard about the Doggie Treats. More manufacturers should have adjustable sound via physical changes/treatments, especially if it involves something that is easily reversed and brought back to stock.
LOL! I also danced to the tunes of the Bee Gees and Saturday Night Fever!!
I am in my mid 50s but I clearly heard the difference between discs or no discs. With no discs they were too bright for me and with 1 disc each side they are just perfect.
musicman59 - hmmmmmm.... I'm mid fifties and was born in '59. Or perhaps a '59 Fender?
They gave us a shiny badge, too!
Same year here and started my journey on this music and equipment world since 1970. Since then it has been a never ending upgrade story.....
well that's just the bee's knee's !
and i got a pair sitting on my head right now !!
Are you allowed to order the Alpha Dog without the stand for a slightly lower price? I really don't care for the sheet metal type design and it's not even big enough for the headphones so I'd rather not have to pay for it and just have it sitting around in the box unused.
My guess is no. Pretty sure Dan offers them at the best price he can. Worth asking either way.
What you might consider is selling the stand, using it for different pair of headphones, or repurposing it.
Eh, it's probably not worth a lot so it's not like I'd be paying a great deal for it. Probably just keep it in the box, I guess. I wouldn't mind getting a Sieveking headphone stand.
The Sieveking is nice. But at 180 beans it's a ripoff. I bought a knock off on the bay from China. I paid around 50 bucks and you can hardly tell the difference. It gets the job done.
