The T50RP Paradox | reviews, discussion, & mini-tour impressions (index in second post) - Page 27

post #391 of 732

Does LFF make incremental improvements to the Paradox or are they "finished?" There have been a few recently done by Dan over at Mr. Speakers (a total of 3 different versions within roughly a 2-month period) and upgraded mods are going to be a $30 option on his site in the near future. However, I wish I had thought more carefully and realized that I had bought a work-in-progress rather than a finished piece of kit....sorry to derail a bit, but I'm feeling some disappointment with this news.

Man, if I would have thought about it sooner, it would have been really smart to see if we could have had Flysweep's Paradoxeseseses sent down to the Canlanta meet. Poopers. 

 

Doublea71, I believe I've read a few times that there is only one sound for all the different Paradox headphones, as he released them exactly as he wanted them the first time. The different price points, colors and options are there for fun and customization, but don't make any difference to the sound. If I'm mistaken, I'm happy to be corrected, but I believe this is accurate.

Some of my all-time favorite words there... tongue_smile.gif

Theogenes is correct.. all the Paradoxes Luis has released "into the wild" are tuned to the same 'neutral' standards.  He's mentioned there might be some extremely slight variances.. but those differences are unintended & occur 'naturally.'

I've been admonished by some members (Lap Dogs?) for voicing my displeasure, but I don't think it's worth debating people who clearly feel it's okay so I've kept my responses to a minimum. I can't understand why people are so happy to pony up more money even though the website says thousands of tests and tweaks were already spent modding the T50RPs to become the Mad Dogs. Just about every company does this to some degree to generate more sales, but 3 different versions being available in about a 2 month window is ridiculous. Kudos to LFF for getting it right the first time.

Has anyone compared the Paradox to the Sennheiser HD800? I'm wondering if the HD800s would be a good upgrade for me since I love neutral headphones.

My second pair arrived :)) Vader color scheme looks absolutely stunning! Reminds me of Fostex's own TH600, but I suppose Paradox is much better sonically smile.gif

Those look sharp, Remilio!! If you decided to post more pictures of 'em, I wouldn't hold it against you.  atsmile.gif

This is probably the right thread to ask this.

 

I'm thinking about ordering a basic Paradox. No paint job, no cable job, just plain jane basic Paradox.

 

Had a few questions.

 

What exactly comes with the basic Paradox? Does it come with the comfort strap/mesh? Does it have the mesh covering for the headband? V-moda cable? Anything else? What earpads are being used now? Are the earpads the same as a Vadar/Fancier paradox?

 

And lastly. Is this the right site to order them?

When I ordered a basic Paradox it didn't come with the V-Moda cable. I had to buy it separately.

What did it come with exactly? How was your experience with the whole process?

I sent my own pair of stock T50RPs for modding. It took about one month to come back to me. I had to buy v-moda cable and brainwavz HM5 pads separately (I sent it to LFF's address).

 

It comes with the suspension headband.
