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.
Now that I'm actually listening to what you're talking about right here right now, I can completely agree 100%. I'm giving these T50RP's 30 days to amaze me and keep on amazing me. If they don't fade out of their glory, the others are going bye bye.
I'm listening to Van Morrison - Into the Mystic ... There's some great things going on here. Its definitely one to check out.
