post #1621 of 2839

Does the sibilance ever go away because it's quite bad... It's actually gotten worse the more I've used them. Just got mine in today and I can't wear these for very long without my ears getting tired.

 

I'm really disappointed atm because I've tried 6 headphones in the $300 range and like these the best but the sibilance and stuff is killing me. :(

I find it only with source material I know to have sibilance, or lower bit rate lossy files.  I don't find it otherwise.  In my experience of course, ymmv...

I've never had sibilance no matter which amp I've tried it with. IMO the mad dogs got a signature that you can listen to forever without fatigue

You might want to consider defective...

 

I haven't had much sibilance with the MD. Only with badly recorded material.

Hey guys, so i was considering buying the mr speakers mad dogs, but i wasnt sure if my sound card alone can drive them.

 

I have a xonar phoebus, or would it just be better to stick to portable headphones,

 

thanks guys :D

I'm using 320kbps. I had no problems with sibilance and fatigue with other headphones in the $300 range.

I can barely wear them for 30 minutes before my ears just get way too fatigued.

Would be my luck but I'd have no way of telling. I just want to be able to keep a pair that I'm satisfied with already...

And we all hear differently.  NO headphone works for 100% of the people.  The MD does work for a lot of us here.  This is kind of a discussion/advice/fanboy (guilty as charged) thread after all.

Does burn in help with them at all? I don't want to have to lose out on $40 on these.

Yes, brain burn-in does help.

It does sound like a defective unit - I've never heard anybody complain about sibilance. Email or PM Dan at Mr. Speakers and he should be able to tell you if you should return them.

Do you have the wide part of the pads on the back ?

Mine sounded horrid for the first 30-60 mins of use.
Harsh. Fatiguing, strained bass.
After an hour i circled back and it was like a different pair of headphones.
Day 2 they still improve. Some of this improvement is phones, the rest is probably brain burn in as jerg said lol
post #1633 of 2839

Do the 3.2 phones still sound balanced? I disliked the DT 770s for their overly thumpy and muddy bass. I like neutral bass if you know what I mean. 

 

With the 3.2 set, does metal sound ok? Is electric guitar textured and not stranded like it is in V shaped responding headphones?

I mainly listen to metal and I think they sound great. They have punch where it is called for but I don't find the bass overbearing at all.
Mine are still burning in so I can give you a better impression in a few more days but very happy with them so far.
That is listening to:
Pantera, megadeth, Metallica, sabbath, gojira, lamb of god, king diamond etc so a fair range within the genre also.

They're not bassy imo and are very balanced
