It was just delivered today, and I have some work to get to so I will listen to it tonight.
Get excited! I just got in a demo pair of Paradox in from LFF. I brought my pair to the Dallas meet a while back and it received favorable impressions, so I wrote to LFF to see if I could snag a pair for the Austin crowd to listen to. He kindly agreed to loan a pair, so y'all will have a chance to hear them this Saturday.
I was one of the first to purchase the premium Paradox, and wrote about it briefly here: http://www.head-fi.org/t/614134/is-it-true-that-modded-t50rps-specifically-lffs-paradox-mod-is-comparable-to-high-end-headphones-such-as-the-lcd2/150#post_8726341
This new pair is just drop dead gorgeous. The color shift paint on the cups is flawless and very, very attractive. A couple pictures:
So they look great, but how do they sound? Decide for yourself after listening to them. Do be careful with them. Loan = I'm responsible for keeping them flawless!
This audition might be the one that gets me. The Paradix were extremely good in Dallas but I resisted.
Well, you'll have plenty of time to check out the LG without even having to leave your rig unattended as you'll be right by my table...
No, after he beat me out on that BA, I did offer to buy his S7, but he said he wanted to keep it a while for comparison. The upgrade fever took hold, so I just bought one new. I hope I don't like the liquid glass much more than it at the meet, I might have to sell both and buy one :P
I'll bring an extension cord and probably my Monster power conditioner (it's not great, but it's got plenty of outlets for me). I should be there pretty early.
Looking great. This is going to be an awesome meet.
My sony 3ks may not make it. I replaced the connector last night and there are still channel problems, I think they may need a full recable since they aren't cabled per ear. All this meet is missing is a vendor who can fix headphones on the spot!
Oh well, other than having a sound stage that may even rival the 800s, they aren't that remarkable these days.
