If i get the Mad Dog, i'll probably get a half decent portable amp as well (NuForce MMP, Digiziod ZO2).
I'm still kinda on the fence about the Mad Dog. I see some people talking about how they love how low the bass goes, and that it has just the right amount of punch and weight, but other people say how they are defenitely not for bassheads.
I wouldnt really call myself that much of a basshead (but then again, my idea of a basshead is someone with 4 subs in the trunk, and XB500s around their neck)
Do you guys think that the Mad Dog will statisfy on stuff like this?
So i listend to Pretty lights - Hot like dimes on both the MD's and my V-Moda M100
My impression is that the MD's can easily handle this music but they need power to do so. There's plenty of bass present although on this song, you can hear that it's not really low low bass. The V-Moda's by comparison needed much less power but they reach their full potential of volume well before the Mad Dogs. At that point the M100's were blowing me away with power on the bass end but there is NO way even I (certifiable bass head) could listen very long. The MD's, on the otherhand, seem to just ask for more volume and never hurt you.You can feel the bass, the never seem to get distorted and you can hear them get louder but the delivery is different.
If the vast majority of your music is like this you may be better of with the Moda's (you'll just need to have your ears replaced in 4 months lol).
Seriously the MD's do as well across multiple genres as any phones out there, but if your intent is to stay just with D&B/dubstep/EDM then you'd be better off with something with more of a V shape. (IMHO)
