Nice comparison, never heard the Paradox myself, but I'd be curious if one ever showed up @ a meet. If you're going to a local meet, be sure to try and listen to the HD 650s on a better amp/DAC... they scale up very well, and if you get the chance to hear them balanced... the soundstage improvement is a clear step up.
ya this baby scales n swims with the shark$$$
wolf....once again gud write up!
Thanks. I'm hoping to get an HD800 for Christmas. And then a few months after get a Bottlehead Crack and Speedball
