I literally tried adding bass, reducing bass at all levels on a 7 band parametric equalizer (Equalizer) while driving it with an E-11/ZO double amp setup that is very bass heavy (the ZO is on the highest red contour and on high gain) so I went up with the bass sliders, down with the bass sliders, you name it, I tried it. Tried without the ZO and again, side by side with a known quantity (Q40) I just couldn't have been less impressed.
Let us know if you get them and try - I just don't know if they can be turned into a bass can. At all. Ever.
Unless mine were defective, which I doubt, they could not keep up with the Q40's. Not even close.
I seem to be maybe the only person on the planet who didn't gush over the MD's.
oh i hardly think you're the only one, they pop up from time to time on the used forum. and im not surprised you were so unimpressed either, the MDs arent basshead cans...
but let me get this streight, you REDUCED bass on a software eq, and then boosted it with a zo? why reduce it first? did you try without the software reduction - only double amping together with the zo and e11?
edit: if i ever do try it out, it will be in a very long time, as im starting college soon, and i probably wont be able to find the funds =/ but if it ever happens, i assure you that head-fi will be notified
