WHY ELECTROSTATIC HEADPHONES?
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.
EXCLUSIVE DRIVER UNIT AMPLIFIER
The SRM-252S is an exclusive driver unit (amplifier) for driving STAX ear speakers with PRO-bias 5 pins. Its line input can directly connect to the audio output terminal of CD player, portable audio player and PC. The SRM-252S has a simple design that excels in sound quality employing the carefully selected newest high-voltage transistors and low-noise FETs. The output stage featuring the emitter-follower configuration reinforces the driving performance and also realized the smooth sound quality.
IMPROVED POWER SUPPLY ON THE SRM-003 MK2
The newly designed driver unit SRM-003 MK2 featuring improved power supply has made it possible to get enough performance also when using a chargeable battery with lower voltage not to mention an alkaline dry cell. Furthermore, the unit can be switched over to ECO and normal modes to enjoy the difference in tone quality.
IMPROVED WEARING COMFORT WITH 3 KINDS OF EARPADS
Three kinds of ear pads (ear piece) are also attached so that the SR-003 MK2 can offer better wearing comfort with the improved form of ear pads. Moreover, an exclusive head band (overhead arc) is provided to obtain more stable wearing feeling.

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.

Yes! Insane and effortless transparency. That's what you get with this Baby Stax. I have LCD-2C, HD650, Grados. With these Stax, mids and treble are glorious, the transition from mids to treble is even more glorious. Bass is detailed, high quality with absolutely no distortion. But bass quantity of course will not match the LCD. But that is certainly not going to affect the pure listening pleasure this baby offers. Once you get a good fit (3 ear canal tips are provided), the bass is excellent. The fit depends on the anatomy of the ear canal, I get a very good fit and it's not at all dis-comfortable. I can listen for hours and hours continuously. In fact the glory of the Stax sound compels me to listen for very very long time. Absolutely no fatigue. The sound is so clear, soft, detailed, incredibly fast, ethereal and divine like a butterfly in paradise. People say the next big stop from SR-003 is only SR-009, I don't know, not heard SR-009. But I know one thing for sure (me being a guitarist for past 30 years), this sounds exactly like the unplugged live instruments.
