I guess it depends on what style of music you are playing though.
Agreed. I have the 22" and the 18" stock heads on my two 57 kits. If anything I would open up the sound with a none muffling head. I really don't like the slapping sound that the foam ring gives to the drum from behind the kit with the EMAD.
