It's HeadFi's best kept secret. Despite a couple of (fairly mammoth) threads going about it (and orthos in general), I feel the T50RP is still being slept on. For the sake of many competing headphone manufacturers w/ much more expensive lineups, I can safely assume they'd like to keep it that way.
One thing is for sure, when you do get the T50RP modded and are able to hear what's it's truly capable of, it's helluva lot easier to get rid of one's other cans. There's a definite adjustment period going back to many dynamic driver & BA phones.. music simply isn't as immersive or "real" like it is with the T50RP. And that isn't just HF forum-speak.. I think it's quite noticeable.
My T50RP's are going to be Paradox'd by LFF, then it's onto finding a matching, desktop amp.
BTW, I'm listening to Kevin Yost's deep house classic, "One Starry Night" as I type this.. it's an album that's sent shivers down my spine with it's atmospheric and skillful production.. but I had to grab a coat when I pumped them through the T50RP. With my brighter flavored T50RPs, the hypnotic cymbal work sounds so crisp and detailed, it's like I can cut glass with it... yet it isn't fatiguing.
