I would agree but I would think that's to do with the price!

if i remember right, the pricing is similar with the paradox being a little bit more expensive.

It depends what options you go for with the Paradox i think. The basic sound modded Paradox is 195 USD more and then increases from that so a fair bit i think!

true, i keep on forgetting that i already have the stock t50rp so sending it to lff to mod will be cheaper than someone who has to buy the t50rp and then send it to him tongue.gif

No mention of ATH W series? redface.gif

I think the Denon AH-D2/5/7 are recent enough to warrant a mention (you could still find one, but maybe not BNIB). And the Kenwood KH-K1000. smily_headphones1.gif

Guys, keyword is "still in production".

 

So I'd go with TH600-900, W1000X-5000, Sig DJ, Edition 8 and D7100.

Woah, lets not get carried away. The D7100 should never be mentioned in the sentence. At least as far as performance goes.

 

Edit: But yea, "still in production", the ones I mentioned minus D5000 and D7000.

ATH-W5000 if you can make them work for you, i.e. proper fit and matching amp.

i have read a headphone flagship review on here that the reviewer really did not like the w5000. you think he didnt have a good fit or a matching amp?

I still miss the sound of the DX1000. It's been so long that I barely remember what they sound like, but I still want one.

how much did you get it for?

post #30 of 243
Could be anything, that just one individual opinion. Do a search for W5000 in the title, it has pretty wide fanbase. On my setup they get same or more headtime than HD800, I think of them as of HD800 with soul as they have comparable details and soundstage but W5000 adds very nice euphonic coloration to midrange, some do prefer more neutral presentation. Another thing, with wrong amp and bad seal they sound thin and distant.
