Some Sony MA900 comparisons.
The Sony MA900 is a bit darker and has slightly bloated and slower bass compared to the Alpha Dogs. The MA900 being an open headphone, unsurprisingly has better soundstage. The MA900 sounds closer to the Alpha Dogs than the HD600 and K701. Will add more details to my review thread.
This image turned me on.
And I do find the MA900 on the warm side. I don't tend to use the word dark, because to me that sounds like it's lacking in detail/veiled. the MA900 is not veiled. It's smooth in the upper range, but veiled is a stretch.
As for when I talk about mids/vocals, I don't test that with my EDM, actually. I DO listen to more than just those genres of music, you know. Lol. One of my fave test tracks is 'Skylar Grey - Words'
So the MA900 and AD have a similar-ish tonality? That sounds appealing.
I could see how the MA900 have slower bass. I've also been telling people the MA900 isn't bass deficient. It has a slight hump in the mid bass, where it gentle rolls towards the mid section. The MA900 is quite linear, other than the lower and upper extremities sloping downwards.
