Actually, the Paradox (singular) is a hermetically sealed Fostex headphone that is devised of various modifications by LFF (A Member of the Trade on This forum). However, if you are interested in buying some Paradoxes, as you like to call them, I'm sure LFF would be more than happy to sell you two pair or more.
The Mad Dogs are another variation of the Fostex modified headphone as offered by Dan, who is also present on this forum and a Member of the Trade. The Mad Dogs offer you the Dog Padz ear pads for the Mad Dogs headphones. These are custom made for the Mad Dogs and are constructed of real leather. The previous ear pad offerings on the Mad Dogs were the Shure 840 pads.
Additionally, I believe that LFF will work with quite an assortment of ear pads with the buyer who may consider something a bit further up the food chain. However, you should consult with LFF a bit more on what he can specifically offer.
I have heard both, and I like both offerings. Each has a nice amount of bass, well rounded mids and pleasant highs. Sure, there are other variations, but the individual buyer would have to see how each headphone sounds to them and how pleased they might be with the headphone from either of these sellers.
