Is it true that modded T50RP's (specifically LFF's Paradox mod) is comparable to high end headphones such as the LCD2? - Page 13

post #181 of 284

out of curiosity, what are you pairing the HP-P1 with?

With a modded fostex t50rp, whether its mad dog mod or paradox mod. I have yet to decide which mod to pick if I'm not getting both together. Currently in my subjective opinion, my best sounding headphone is my Sony z1000 that is in my avatar. Hpp1 with z1000 I'm also expecting them to match well together.

I have never heard the t70 though I own the beyerdynamic dt990 and its fairly fatiquing like a lot of people have mentioned here. A lot of people say that's the beyerdynamic house sound, so I'm steering away from beyerdynamic as a brand. I would advice you to audition the t70 before pulling the trigger, just my 2 cents...

Have done a relatively short one with them, probably will do a longer one with a friends T70 soon. 

 

I wonder how much more fatiguing it can get compared to Shure :O

Is the shure fatiquing?

Not to me no, I find it pleasant actually
 

EDIT: Just that many here have commented they find the SRH940 fatiguing, which to me it is not - so I am wondering how much more fatiguing the the T70 as compared to the SRH 940.  Back to the original topic, I'm not decided on my mod yet either

Just got my new Paradox today.  Opened up and plug right to the Mjolnir first thing to notice is there actually a bit more bass in this "new rev"?  I said  that because I have my "old" Paradox with Hifiman pads using stock or V-moda cable.  The new one has a BTG audio 4pin cable that I already had a while.  The new Paradox comes with 003 pads and its a little more comfy than the Hifimans.  Aside from the bump in bass its the same great sounding Paradox as before.  I suspect since its 4pin compared to stock cable Im able to take full advantage of the Schiit amp.  Great job on the paint Luis.  Very satisfied again with your work.  

 

LFF have you tried the pads I send you yet?

What pads did you send him?

LFF's been experimenting with Kotex for his new revision.  They're unobtrusive and very absorbent for heavy sweaters.

If you are getting more bass then it means one of two things:

 

1) You were not getting a proper seal with the first set or

2) Your amp emphasizes the bass a bit more.

 

The Paradox is very sensitive to seal, amp changes and sources.

 

I have tried the pads you sent me and I actually use them on a personal set I have.   normal_smile%20.gif

You might be right on the two counts LFF, the new 003 pads clearly isolate better than the HIfiman.  Also the amp has a strong bass emphasis.  

Glad the velour pads are put to good use.

I tried Kotex but found the Paradox to get too moody and way too sensitive around anything. Most guys who tried it with the Kotex found them difficult to understand. No longer trying that. tongue_smile.gif

So you're able to get good sound out of the velours LFF?

I am but the velours that are readily available lead to quite a bit of loss in the bass.

 

Both of the velours I am using have been modified to prevent this.
