The title of the article sounds like if Enigma is yet another T50RP mod, quite confusing IMO.
Great write up.I agree. For me the Enigmas treble has found the perfect sweet spot between smoothness, extension, air & great detail retrieval. The XC's were my fav closed HP until I got these.
Nice article and mirrors my thoughts about the Enigma as well. When Luis demo'ed his first pair at a meet early last year, it took me only a few days of dwelling on it to contact him to have a set made. I don't use the Enigma too often since my W3000ANV are more my everyday headphone, but they are a nice slightly bass boosted complement to them for rock music.
Good review but why does the Enigma "Recreates the T50RP" if they are not based on the T50 RP drivers?!?
Though I would imagine somewhere in the 38pages of this thread the question has already been asked, but , for those of you who believe in "burn in"(esp with planars) and own these cans, how many burn in hours do you feel the Enigmas would benefit from? I have a pair on the way and they only have about 30hrs on them. Wondering if folks feel they could use a 200+ hr burn in like is recommended for most planars. Tks!
Have you heard the Slants? I was hoping to get an explanation of the differences and then start saving up the cash if the Code X is substantially better. Must the phone be the original HE 5 for Luis to do the mod? I love my Slants in all respects, from descriptions and reviews on headfi's I suspect the Enigma's might not quite be my cup of tea, but the Slants sound like they may potentially do even more of what I love about the Paradox Slants.
Pretty much decided I will stay In Luis' camp as the tuning on these seems to exactly suit my tastes. Hoping the Code X is more of the same!
I have to say, I was sitting here just listening to some ambient music today, and I really wished I had the Enigma on my head. I think I might have to save up. Lots of other cool headphones I've been looking at, but they're all in the same vein of my Sig Pros, and these cans are just completely different.
