That they are, but I tried the MD and again to thick in the mids It's the MIDS you guys, they sound just too soft and thick

no no no, I like sub bass mind you, it's the MIDS that sound thick, not thick but they lack any tactility, they are just overly soft almost veiled. Like the difference between Raw bread and fully cooked bread, the fully cooked bread [even dense bread] has a more solid texture, yeast breads can still be fully cooked and have a softness to them, but raw dough is... gummy and overly dense and thick
