Man, I've been sick half a week and it feels like I got sick yesterday, but it's been half a week!
Anyway, the Paradox headphones, especially the Vader variant, are extremely good looking! In fact, they are so good looking that I'd be willing to "forget" to tell my wife that there are exactly the same headphones significantly cheaper out there as well as I'd totally forget to tell her from where they come from or about the Mad Dogs, or anything else. What keeps me from forgetting all of those things is our economy. We're not rich by any measure. Oh well..
The Amperiors looked really good but as Ardgedee mentioned, probably not for listening. I can see them on a collectors headphone shelf though. But they do in fact lead me to two questions:
1) They have a rather asian look, but they are voiced and engineered by Germans, right? My question: What if they would be voiced by some Asian headphone gurus? How would they sound? What would differentiate them from the regular Amperiors in terms of sound quality?
2) Follow-up: Is there any kind of distinctive Asian sound? Could someone explain that? I know it's been on the topic a while ago, and I also know that MuppetFace wanted to ignite that discussion as well, in which I didn't participate, still it has left some kind of curiosity within me. What's a typical Asian sound, and are there headphones that can truly examplify that sound? Are there ... typical Asian ... headphones?
