If I was to sell my HE-400 and purchase a pair of Mad Dogs, would I find myself disappointed?
Things I especially like about the HE-400 is the awesomely deep and textured bass, unreal instrument separation, holographic sound stage, and overall detailed sound. Would I miss any of these attributes if I moved to the mad dogs? I love my HE-400 to death, but it being open means I can't listen to them as much as I would like.
Lastly can anybody with an M-stage can comment on how they drive the MD? I know they are quite power hungry, but im not too sure how much power the M-stage spits out.
I don't have any issue telling you to buy the MD. The he400 is a great hp, but the MD does not have the fatal flaws that the he400 does. The MD has a very good soundstage for a closed hp, but can't quite match the he400 on that front. But the MD just hits all the check boxes after that....balance, comfort and the mids are something special.
