Are the MrSpeakers MadDogs any good?

post #17 of 25

Grados and tape mod the earpad cushions would be my recommendation.

IF however you are willing to amp and source up the K701/2.... you can build up a K701 rig to go toe to toe with Grados in a moderately amped/sourced rig.

I liked them when I demo'd them at the last bay area meet.

But... they are still closed cans, and have that enclosed envelope kind of sound.
