Yeah Matt - These are my exact preferences as well.  I like an open headphone for classical music.  The ADs are great for Jazz and female vocals, yup also pop and R&B...

See.. I knew I was right. :wink:

Yup, I agree with Matt. Open phone for classical, AD for acoustic, vocals, jazz, rock. Wait, what did Matt say? From memory, I liked the AD better than D7000 for classical. I should finally have my Alphas in a week or so to refresh my memory.

I'm assuming you listened to mine. When I briefly listened to the AD, I would say the AD and the Paradox are on par.

I have to say I don't have much exposure to the Paradox, just got to hear them once at a meet. Based on my brief impressions the AD was clearly in another league aesthetically and sonically. 
Same thing with me, I heard it once at the recent CA meet.  With such brief exposure, I wouldn't dare to compare between the 2.

It's really funny to hear all the Paradox comparisons going on now.  Let's not forget comparisons to the Paradox was done with the first release of the Mad Dogs.  The Mad Dogs and the Paradox was on par then.  Really then I still preferred the Mad Dogs for some things.  

 

I compared a few T50RP mods that included the first Mad Dog, Paradox, Thunderpants TP-1, BMF.  

 

Sense then Dan has released 2 or 3 iterations / upgrades to the Mad Dogs.  I know I sent my first pair in for a tuning.  Now the Alpha Dogs.  

 

The Mad Dogs got better, Alpha Dogs got better than the Mad Dogs.  What did the Paradox do?  Stayed the same = no improvements at all.  Until the Slants come out.  

 

So how is the Alpha Dogs on par with the Paradox today?  One improved the other did not.  I'm sorry at this point the Alpha Dogs are the superior Mod = IMO...

I don't want to start an argument here, so I'm going to dismiss myself from this debate.

Didn't LFF revise the Paradox recently? If so that means DigitalFreak has listened to them.

"Let's not argue and bicker over who killed who."

 

 

For my part, thanks to everyone for sharing their opinions; I appreciate SO much there's been this much interest and enthusiasm, and thoughtful comparison to other products through pros and cons.

I’m wondering what are the different elements of the following AD setup shown at the Tokyo 2013 Fujiya Avic Autumn Headphone Festival.

Thanks.

I have no idea... I listened to the Alpha Dogs for the very first time this past monday, thanks to a very nice head-fier that loaned them to me for evaluation.
