You do know that this is the high end forum right? This question needs to be asked in the headphone forum.

how about the koss tony bennett headphone for much less than 300 bucks? and the remaining amount of money can be used to buy an amp... like a fiio e17

AKG K550/Beyer DT880? If you already have an amp these will probably scale very nice

Buy a pair of Mad Dog T50rp or LFF's Paradox that crush anything in the sub $500 headphone range. More like everything sub $1200 IMHO.

I don't know about ps500 never heard it. But yes, IMO those listed my Mad Dogs are "better" and many people have left LCD's for LFF's

Paradox. Though his phone is very neutral, it's not for everyone.

There isn't a "best" just a preferred. The Mad Dog mod is what I went with, I do plan on getting the Paradox..sometime...

I think if you're interested in either you should contact mrspeakers for the Mad Dogs and LFF for the Paradox.

Yes, it is also one of the most active threads. LFF's Paradox is a T50RP mod as is mrspeakers Mad Dog, as is Smeggy's Thunderpants.

I didn't mention/recommend the Thunderpants because they're above the desired budget. I also don't think they're as good as LFF or mrspeakers.

ok so lff's paradox and mrspeaker's mad dog, how do they compare to each other?

post #14 of 40
Hmmm - hearing being the subjective beast that it is, I can only share my 2 cents. I've heard both (though I've only heard Mr. Speakers mods briefly), and my preference is for Paradox. As I've heard a couple different versions of mrspeakers modded T50RP, I will say that the most recent build I heard (at the Village in LA) were the best (in comparison to his earlier efforts). That said, Paradox is more neutral, more dynamic and more spacious. Three qualities I greatly value.

i see, and how much is lff's paradox? the same as mad dog? does he also have a website?
