According to DigitalFreak's review:

 

Alpha dogs - better finish, better technicalities (extension/detail);

 

Paradox - better tonal balance / more realistic timbre.

He prefers Paradox's cable but AD's cable is of good quality also.

He calls the cups gorgeous on the AD but overall prefers that DIY look of the Paradox.

Wat. Maybe I'll have to try a Paradox some day! I'll watch the entirety of the video later when I get the chance.

The Paradox is nothing special and kinda overpriced too, relative to both MrSpeakers headphones.

Dan knocked it out the park with the esthetics.  Best looking T50RP there has ever been.

Haha, I had PMs from members in past with not such wonderful impressions of the paradox and that a well done modded fostex is a better option.

I'll take on a flame suit also...
There is just no physical way a paradox can come close to a Apha dog.
When I compared the Alpha to the maddog, to me they were at least 4x better than a maddog, so no way I can believe a paradox reaching that level.
It would defy the laws of physics due to it's smaller enclosure.
But hey if that's what your ears prefer then go for it..

If I go to the Paradox thread, I'll surely see the exact opposite opinions. XD
post #4289 of 9033

Lol, why am I not surprised at some of the comments. Seriously though guys, I stand by my comments that I really like both headphones. I'm quite happy to own both of them and my opinion is either of them will serve its owner well. Of coarse whats a T-bone for me might be considered tube steak by another person. We all have our opinions and preferences in the end. I still hope Dan and Luis one day have a meeting of the minds. I think they could really come out with something special if they worked together.

You all started sounding like fan boys.  At least, you are doing it in the right thread.  :D

(my turn to duck...):p
