So, obviously you like the Paradox's more. ;)

Very helpful, thanks.  beerchug.gif

How can someone debate what you like?  Well I suppose they can but so what.  Share your impressions man...  

 

I've owned the Mad dogs, Paradox, BMFs, and the Thunderpants all at the same time.  Even at that time, not sure what version the Mad Dogs was at, maybe 1.0??  I still preferred the Mad Dogs as a more enjoyable listen.  Yes the Paradox was I guess the correct word is more technical.  But for me that = a tad bit on the boring side.  Not involving or engaging at all.  Now if I wanted to use a headphone as a tool to compare DACs, Amps, and even recordings - The Paradox would fit the bill.

The current MD is so good, I wouldnt mind it being my only headphone. That says a lot.

^^ That's quite a complement for someone who doesn't really care for closed hp's. wink.gif

True. I mean, for the main purpose of MUSIC (specifically my specific tastes), I can live with the MD alone, just as I lived with the D7000 alone. I do prefer an open one for everything else though.

I did not imply that.

I'd rather not crash this thread.

Well, I don't know about you, but when/if I do get Paradoxes, I WILL post about them here and compare (just as most of us do with any new headphone we get! lol). ;-)

Easy solution to avoid confrontation.

If you liked MD better post impressions here, otherwise in Paradox thread. biggrin.gif

Not counting comfort:

Faves for music:

D7000 > LCD2 > SR-407 > HE-400 = Mad Dog 3.2 = K702 Annie

Overall

D7000 > LCD 2 > SR-407 > K702 Annie > HE-400 > (more or less) HE-4 = HD650 = Mad Dog 3.2 = ESP950 = DT990 (certain things I like better on the last few which are interchangeable)

If rating about how I feel they sound technically and not subjectively:

SR-407 > LCD2 > ESP950 > D7000 > K702 Anniversary > HE-4 > HE-400 > Mad Dog 3.2 > HD650

Isn't D7000 at least semi-closed? Have you tried the TH900 as a comparison? 

post #6073 of 6388
This is based on what I've personally heard. I have yet to hear the TH-900, but I have a feeling they wouldn't dethrone the D7000.

I'm not basing this on technicality, but my specific taste in response curve, etc. The D7000 has my favorite sound of all headphones I've heard, even if it's technically bested by others.

I absolutely LOVE the MD for music. No question. Dan has made an absolute winner with the 3.2 for me.

So while, no, the MD is not a budget LCD2, it is a VERY engaging, and rich sounding headphone that despite a few drawbacks, brings me nearly as much enjoyment to my music listening as the LCD2.

I'm glad the MD has it's OWN sound, as it makes them unique and gives them their own identity.

If I could rate the MD, I'd give them an 8.5.

Sarah's voice sounds PHENOMENAL on the MD. I mean an actual good file, not a youtube stream, which slightly downplays how good her voice sounds off the MD.

I'm sure we all have our favorites and would rank them very differently.  The way we "feel" they sound technically is still subjective biggrin.gif

 

My top 5 slots are no question:

 

HE-6

HD800

LCD-3

T1

Th900

 

From here on is a toss up.

 

HE-5LE = HD-500 = HE-4

ATH-AD2000 = Annies = HD600 = HD650

D7000 = W3000 = Mad Dogs (Dog Pads)

LCD-2.2 = SRH1840 = Q701

post #6075 of 6388

This is worth hearing for the electronica/bass fans, and yes, there's some nice acoustic elements rolled in.
