Separate names with a comma.
And the conclusion has this tidbit:
"Felt disc" can't fit my AD.
The only way to use "Felt disc" is installing "Felt disc" inside "Alpha pad".
And the DOTs
They are quite different size and height.
If i use two for both sides (means 4 DOTs are used), I feel that the right and left vocal distances are different.
If i use one for both sides (means 2 DOTs with same size are used), there is no issue what i mentioned above.
My English is not good enough. Sorry about that.
That's so weird is the black ring new?
for me the dots came pre-installed and the pads fit perfectly my rings are white
It was strangely ranked so far above the others. While I agree that they are a truly superior headphone, I don't think they necessarily 'blow' away the competition.
In terms of pricing, yeah.
This is one of the strong points I really have to agree on. These have a speaker-like clarity when it comes to the impact of drums and electronic snares. Its startling how much detail there is and separation between such instruments when I realize I'm wearing a closed headphone. 80's synth pop music never sounded so good. I'm listening to Al B. Sure! "Night and Day", The Human League "Human", Depeche Mode "Never Let Me Down Again", Pet Shop Boys "West End Girls". All have excellent clarity and presence throughout the frequency range.
My AD is older one arrived at 2013/10.
“Doggie Treats” was not one the market then.
always buy new products after at least one year on the marketproducts always improve particularly when you buy'in from a enthusiast
wowbvbv, if you are located in the USA, you can find a similar material with Creatology stiff felt, I believe it was. Dan told me they were close, but not the exact same. I wouldn't doubt this, as it appears the material Dan uses is more consistent throughout than the Creatology stuff, but the latter would work OK for personal experimentation (not so well for mass production where consistency is important).
You can also try experimenting with other felts, fabric, tissue papers (even toilet paper), and thin sheets of open-cell foam placed in front of the driver. I actually found using a square of 2-ply toilet paper + thin layer of open-cell foam + 2 of the included felt discs did a good job tuning the Alpha Dog to my tastes and might prefer it over using "dots" in the damping configuration. I was able to get a slightly smoother treble characteristic, at least, without necessarily reducing the intensity.
you will have to give the a more detailed spec on the toilet paper that you used. paper is not a simple thing
The treats are correctly sized, you are installing the discs wrong. The felt discs don't go directly on the driver. See the video around 4:35, the Alpha Pads are on when you put the discs on. https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=osQuY3_mKSo
The black outer ring was the original design. We did make a switch to white when we added a wall to surround the foam, it was a detail mostly for cosmetic reasons but it also makes it easier to align the felt disc. To align the felt with a black ring, all you have to do is orient the felt to the foam underneath the Alpha Pads' driver screen.
Hahaha, uh, I think I had basic AngelSoft on hand or something. I dunno. Parents bought it while visiting and is not my go-to TP for non-headphone purposes. TP will also subjectively lessen the "impact" of the sound, but given my AD had a bass boost straight from the box, I thought this worked well. It's amazing how well TP works at smoothing our or flattening treble peaks. Sounds counter-intuitive, but it is true.
I purchased my Alpha Dogs yesterday. Dispatched within the hour so hopefully they'll they'll be here soon. My amp is the Burson Soloist SL which I'm confident will be more than sufficient. Does anyone have any recommendations for a good DAC, something in the £300-£500 range?
I use the Bifrost Uber + Loki and I am happy with this combination. However, I did demo the Burson Conductor, this product was super smooth and refined with the AD and as far as I can remember the conductor uses a Sabre DAC 9018. so perhaps you may want to look for a DAC with this chip set.
I have not heard this however, it looks as if it might be good from a spec sheet, I know specs don't tell the whole story
Just so you know i need 2 X DT in AD for me to be happy
