IMMERSIVE MUSIC EXPERIENCE, HI-CLASS SOUND
For its core wires, SR-L700 has 6NCu high purity (99.99999%) copper wires. The outer perimeter consists of 6 silver-plated high purity (99.99999%) copper wires for a better drive. This Optic Fibre Cable (OFC) uses a wide parallel structure to reduce the capacitance, letting you experience your music as though it were recorded live. The sound quality of the SR-L700 is excellent. Heat diffusion is used in the fabrication of the three-layer stainless photo-etched electrodes for crystal-clear, transparent sound. Special care is taken to choose a thin-film diaphragm for the sound element. Experience the balanced sound with delicate highs, soothing mids and deep bass.
GENUINE LAMB LEATHER EARPADS FOR OPTIMUM COMFORT

The 10-click slider mechanism allows you to adjust the soft headband for a better fit. Once adjusted, it stays put so that you don’t have to constantly re-adjust it every time you wear it. This design avoids fatigue and lets you 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-L700 offers supreme detail and a type of diffuse, airy, almost inscrutable presentation that you won’t find anywhere else. I’d consider it well worth the price of admission. "Read More
"The L700mk2 is the better headphone, should you be able to afford its pricing there is more treble energy than with the SR007mk2. Similar to the mid range performance."Read More
"This Stax pairing is breathtaking in so many ways; an astonishing performer that stomps all over its rivals when it comes to naturalness and resolution."Read More
"The Stax SR-L700MK2 is absurdly good for the price. It is still very pure in quality. The tone of the headphone is just sublime, easily my new favorite of all time."Read More
"They do get better as you move up the range, culminating in the L700mk2, which is certainly the best of the three in terms of overall sonic performance."Read More
1) Plenue 2 + JH Audio Rosie IEM---- I am using this for last more than 24 months mostly while in travel or walking. The sound is very nice..It is musical, crystal clear, good sound separation. Six months back, I also bought AUNE- B1s amp basically for better sound purpose. There is small benefit in sound quality by adding this amp. But found that the same sound effect can be obtained by increasing volume of Plenue 2. so I do not use it ( Aune B1s Amp) much nowadays.
2) Plenue 2 +Audeze LCD2 ... I heard lot about open back over ear headphones. So purchased Audeze LCD-2 one year back. Very nice sound quality. I shall call it-- punchy, deep bass. I like these cans very much. Six months back I also purchased Audeze Dekard amp assuming that Audeze amplifier shall be good and perfect match for Audeze earphones- LCD-2. Audeze Dekard makes remarkable difference in sound quality of LCD-2. One can feel the more openness, free ease/ flow of sound with use of these amplifier. LCD-2 need amplifier for better sound quality and Dekard is one of the best match.
3) Recently I bought STAX L700 with SRM 353X: (Set up- PLENUE 2+ AUDEZE DEKARD + SRM353 + STAX L700) -- I have used it for last one month. I am not audiophile to describe the sound preciously in words. Sound quality of STAX L700 is very-- fast, crystal clear & accurate. The bass and punch of LCD-2 is better than L700. But L700 has also nice bass and punch. Treble, accuracy and musicality of L700 is the best. I like L700 than LCD-2.
For STAX L700 --What I like most is--- I can now enjoy my Samsung Galaxy S9+ with my STAX L700 through Audeze Dekard. When I listen to U-Tube live performance /Musical concert -- I feel like I am in live show. L700 is very good enjoying experience for listening (and also viewing ) to such live music concert.
Before I start: HPZ was kind enough to send me an "Audiophile" T-Shirt along with the package. Thank you for the nice gesture!
I shall not waste your time commenting about the sound quality of these excellent ear-speakers/drivers, instead I'll focus on the overall experience. I am a staunch iem guy, disliked headphones for its ergonomics. STAX made me an immediate convert after the Headphone Connect - Hyderabad (11/24/2019). I was ready to place them on my head, literally; for their sound.
SR-L700 (TOTL Lambda) - I was in dilemma between L700 and L300 LTE. I went with 700 as its diaphragm supposedly belongs to the superior Omega series. Better headbands, real lamb leather lined ear cushions. Resulting in better seal and comfort.
SRM-353X - One of the best out of the box drivers for STAX. Powerful, pro bias; better than 252S. I'm using it in fully balanced mode from DX221.
DSD flows smoothly without the need for any EQ whatsoever.
Thanks to Mr. Raghav Somani (CEO) for putting my purchasing apprehensions to rest.
Shout out to Mr. Salim for the excellent communication, his availability to answer my queries and shipping it out fast. Received the items within 24Hrs, the very next day.
My only gripe - I am T-Shirt size L, but I received an XL Size. I guess I shouldn't be complaining for a freebie :)
