Default best heads for Mapex Black Panther

i've got a 5.5x14 Birdseye BP and am wondering which heads are best for greatest sensitivity (both snare and res sides)?

currently, i have a Controlled Sound (black dot, coated) snare side. can't remember what's on the res side but i think it's a thinner one than what came from the factory...

I have a 13X6.5 blonde birdseye that I put a stock reso(witch I will upgrade with a ambassador clear) and a remo ambassador on top and she is sensitive like a girl and cracks like whip

As far as sensitivity goes, I have an Evans G1 on the batter and Evans Hazy 300 on the resonant and it is pretty sensitive. That's one suggestion. If you want sensitivity, i'd imagine you go with single ply heads. Huge difference from the batter head you have now.
