I've been reading this forum for a couple weeks now as I'm considering the balanced Mad Dogs. I, too, am curious about whether the Mad Dogs have enough bass as I listen mostly to electronic music. That said, the highs and mids are just as important for computer generated music. Presently I have a pair of Grado SR225i and I'm looking for a less fatiguing pair of headphones that has more bass, the warmth of ortho dynamic headphones, but with great detail. The HE-500s or HE-400s are also an option but I will use when working in my art studio so I sometimes move around and work with my head down so I worry the HiFi Man headphones will be too big and heavy.
