Don't think so. I prefer the intimate and balanced SS and depth of the MD to wide SS. If you wanted SS width you should have checked out the SB's or just about any other phone. If I want to play w/ EQ I could probably faceroll a majority of IEMs using the M1 or Pro alpha. The only phones that can compare signature wise that I've heard are the DDMs and SM3 but they have their own pluses and minuses that make them un-MD like which some may prefer.
Aren't Sony X's usually rather warm for phones like the MD? Have you heard them amped yet?
Ah okay, well I just really enjoyed listening to them last night. and yes I forgot what the first amp was but the second one was I borrowed my uncles Meier Audio Stepdance and to be used with my iPhone 4 via Twag LOD and it definitely improved the sound though for the price he paid for the stepdance it's not something I'd be willing to dish out for just an amp rather get a new pair of IEM's ;)
