WELCOME TO THE WORLD OF EAR SPEAKERS, HI-CLASS SOUND
The innovative SR-L300 is, like all the others in Stax’s Lambra series, an ultra-high fidelity device due to its electrostatic technology. It produces a sound that would only be comparable to other loudspeakers (& not headphones). Hence, it is only fair that this headset be called an Earspeaker. Keeping in line with its predecessors, the SR-L300 has top notch sound quality. Stainless photo etched electrodes are fixed securely for a clear transparent audio. The headphone gives a balanced sound with delicate highs, soothing mids and a deep bass.
WHY ELECTROSTATIC HEADPHONES?, LET YOUR MUSIC SOUND ITS BEST
Electrostatic designed have been pioneered by Stax and they are clearly at the top of the game. The electrostatic headphones operate on a an unconventional level unlike other headphones that feature dynamic and moving coil designs. In most headphones, the drivers are heavier, making it difficult to recreate detail in playback due to mass. To keep the quality of music from deteriorating, the Stax SR-L300 uses an Oxygen Free Copper (OFC). This cable uses a wide flat structure to reduce the capacitance between wires and to drive it effectively so that your music always sounds its best.
ARTIFICIAL LEATHER EARPADS, EXTREME COMFORT
Everything about the SR-L300 is made to enhance the sound and your listening experience. This also includes the artificial leather earpads. The flexibility of these earpads provides added comfort while letting you feel the freshness of your music. The SR-L300 is made for comfortable listening. The stepless slider mechanism, lets you adjust the soft headpad for a better fit. This avoids fatigue and enables you to entirely immerse yourself in the music.

Experience the Electrostatic Earspeaker
STAX was founded in 1938. In 1959, STAX developed the world’s first electrostatic headphone and introduced SR-1 in 1960. Today STAX continues their tradition by offering the finest headphones for both professional and audiophile applications. STAX prefers to call its headphones “EARSPEAKERS”; such Ultra-High Fidelity devices for reproducing music can only be compared with the best cost-no-object loudspeakers, not other headphones. The term ”EARSPEAKER” is, therefore, more descriptive of STAX’s contribution to today’s most advanced level of sonic transduction.
Sound Output Like Never Before
STAX has successfully come to be known as the most well renowned audio brand for producing the world's first electrostatic headphones and amplifiers. STAX prefers making its headphones known as ‘Earspeakers’ and its amplifiers as ‘Drivers’ as they produce audio output like never before.

"The Stax SR-L300 are very good critical listening, open-back, electrostatic headphones with a unique look. They have wide rectangular ear cups with a grill design that give them a retro feel."Read More
"The L300 is a great entry level model in my opinion, and if you are willing to tweak its sound signature with a little bit EQ, it gets even better. The technical performance of the L300 is admirable for its price point."Read More
"The over detail levels of the L300 are very good, beating out some of the planar magnetic and dynamic driver based headphones at around. The L300 is absolutely listenable without Eq’ing this peak."Read More
"So with a top-down perspective, suppose one was to represent the 202's acoustic volume as bounded by the aquamarine trace, relative to that the azure trace would be the L300. Nice job by Stax here."Read More
I have LCD-2C and iSine10 in addition to this Stax SR-L300 (all thanks to the good folks at HPZ). After listening to the Stax for about one month (with SRM-252S) I can say that music has become so much more transparent and detailed. Instrument separation is phenomenal. Bass is of very high quality, tight, impactful and fast, as good as the LCD-2C in quality but noticeably less in quantity. In any case a slight boost in lowest range of EQ would give acceptable bass. Coming from LCD-2C (which has industry standard bass), i do not find the bass quantity to be lacking so much. Mid range and treble are seamless, airy, ethereal and smooth, the best I have ever heard (apart from my practice sessions with unplugged instruments- myself being a guitarist for about 30 years). Guitars sounds as good as the real ones. Distortion is non-existent, so you can listen at very high volumes without any fatigue. Soundstage is same as LCD-2C. No grain as this is extremely fast, so female vocals are represented much better than LCD-2C. Comfortable to wear for long hours for me (if you have large ears the back may touch the inside because of the shallow earpads). To give an idea of the sound quality of the Stax L300 i only wish to say that I recently sold off my 3 year old Senn HD650, and I will keep LCD-2C. HD650 has weaker, bloated bass and is muddy (don't mistake me, it's all comparing with Stax only, otherwise HD650 is pure audiophile entertainment). Stax SR-L300 is highly recommended even if you have the best dynamic headphones.
