So, I want to start playing with the bass port. But before I do so, I just want to verify this...
 
The sticker in the box mentions that the right side is 5 turns and left side is 3 turns. Does that mean if I fully close the vent, and I do 5 turns on the right and 3 turns on the left, the headphones will be back at factory settings?

What I'd suggest is only doing half turns at a time in any direction, and if you happen to leave it in a position - to write down exactly how many turns you made. Turning the screw fully shut can damage the internal part of the cup where the port is - likewise fully turning it out can stuff up the cups as well.
 
I only notice it to be a minor difference with my AD, so I don't usually use the screw.

I was just curious from which point the 3/5 count was made so I can always accurately recreate factory settings.

Yes. With 5 turns there probably isn't much range left though.

If they're not the "Rocket Logo" Voskhod 6N23Ps then I wouldn't buy them.

My right cup slider keeps falling down. I tried to tighten the screw but it is still slowly falling down, any other ways to fix this?
 
EDIT: Getting a part sent, problem is getting solved even it is small :D

I wouldn't mind getting some input on this.
I'm a brand new owner of the Alpha Dogs of a pair purchased in April.
I find certain frequencies sound very rough while others are smooth.
Another issue I have is the sub bass is loose and not well defined =[
Anyone else feel the same way?

Not at all.
 
We may need to know more.  How is the seal?  And what is your associated equipment?  Lastly, what kind of music are you listening to?  Your description reminds me of some Black Metal I have listened to...

It could also be that the previous owner has messed with the bass-tuning. You should check that too. Otherwise, I don't know how you got that problem.
