I will answer in complete honesty....
My Paradox headphones (mod'd Fostex T50RP's) kick the living hell out of the FA-003. To me, it's like comparing iBuds to the FA-003...no contest.

Stop tempting me people....I'm poor!!!
Same here... Flysweep.:
Smeggy wrote today that he has "a strip of foam" under the stock pads. If you check out the thunderpants you'll see how stock pads are raised... I think it's just acoustic foam - which is what we've done to our stock pads.
How close are 840's to O2/.... Mabe I'll pick up some 840's... Just can't justify O2 pads right now.
Take 'em with a grain of salt. Not comparable to other graphs, especially those not generated by me. T50RPs shifted up 10db on first graph. Second graph: overlay normalized to midrange (500 to 2k) and compressed db range to better show differences.
The waterfall plots are available via my sig. Make sure you click on the "mods" portion for the T50RP CSD.
Actually I'm just going to run a new set and put them here.

Some CLOSE-UP views from 1khz onward and ending at 3ms. db range is down to -36.
EDIT: these are the modded T50RPs.
One more for reference - HD800
Same T50RP before mods:

And here I thought you were just cutting up random things in your girlfriend's closet.
How smooth are the mids on your setup?
