I loved my SRH440s (with 840 earpads) and I had it for like 2 years or more! The Mad Dogs are a different beast. In fact, more than a few posts ago I wrote that me and some of my co-workers at first found the Mad Dogs to be underwhelming, it was almost "bland"... until our ears got used to the sound and then... oh boy... I believe that the MDs have enough clarity and detail all over the spectrum and does not sacrifice anything. It gives more bass (way more), more soundstage, excellent mids (I still find these mid-centric), than the SRH440s. If you loved the 440s you WILL appreciate the Mad Dogs.
Of course, YMMV, but I firmly believe this.
Good luck! ;-)
BTW, enjoying Calvin Harris - 18 Months Continuous Mix right now after listening to Rush a few minutes ago! lol Yep, these cans can play everything well!
