Now it wouldn't be any problem to get the Mad Dog headphones and return them if they disappointed but I'm not in the US so I don't have that option, which is why I am a bit worried that it might disappoint since I do like some bass impact.
Anyone that have owned both and that would care to comment?
Two different cans, at least to my ears.
The Beyers were inconsistent to my ears. Sometimes, on some songs it sounded sibilant, other times the bass was OVERPOWERING everything, veiling especially Male vocals. Although very comfortable, isolating, etc. for my preferences the Mad Dogs walk ALL OVER the Beyers as a complete package.
Now, you WILL not get the same bass Quantity! The quality is better on the Mad Dogs. As for impact or "slam", the MDs do have some but definitely not like the Beyers...
If you are really looking for powerful, impactful cans, I don't think the Mad Dogs will be your cup of tea. You could look into M-Audio Q40s, V-Moda M100s, or the ones I'm trying right now, Yamaha Pro 500s...
