LFF's Enigma (new from the maker of the Paradox) - Page 7

post #91 of 616

Doesn't the strap accessory only cost like $15? I wouldn't be suprised if it was cut out pieces of belts.

The strap on my own modded T50rp is literally an old broken belt that I cut up.

Thread Starter 

LFF has been using elastic suspension headbands since the original Paradox, and in my opinion they offer superior comfort compared to fixed headbands. I'd go so far as to say the Paradox is one of the most comfortable headphones I've ever worn.

 

The swatch of leather with studs is the latest iteration. It can also be found on the newer Paradox Slants, and when I tried them a while ago I thought it offered the same level of comfort without curling in on itself as the older version had a tendency to do. 

 

So yes, above all else it's meant to be functional. Reports from the Bay Area meet suggest the Enigma is indeed quite comfortable and actually not that heavy at all despite the solid wood cups. As a result of this I suspect folks will be too busy enjoying the headphones on their heads to really stare at them for extended periods of time, but if the aesthetic of the headband bothers you that much (and I do get the importance of aesthetics), you can easily replace it with something you prefer or---from the looks of it---remove it altogether and just use the top band like on the Paradox.

Is it me, or does the overall shape of the new Enigma look strikingly similar to the Sony MA900?

 

Aesthetics usually come behind actual sound and comfort for me though.

MA900? I think it's just you.

I have to agree with MuppetFace, my Paradox to date is by far the most comfortable headphone I've ever worn. For me, if in means I have to sacrifice some aesthetics to get comfort on par or better then the Paradox then so be it.

Everybody here understands the importance of comfort and performance over aesthetics, but it's simple enough to change up the suspension strap to not look like a riveted belt that's been chopped 90 degrees on either side.

 

Considering the aesthetic quality of the wooden housing and metal framing on the headband, the 'belt' just sticks out like a sore thumb.  It's not so much to ask to refine your design by making a simple change-- especially for something of which I assume will cost a pretty penny, given the price of the regular Paradox packages.

Not to knock this matter...when i first sighted the foto, i tot the top headband was made from some cut up rubber tyre...being v honest here..or the foto was not the best.

 

For home use, aesthetics only last a few secs...those polished wood cups like d7000 give me nightmares ..one scratch n the value dropssssssss.

i actually taped up those cups. :P
