    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.

Insane Transparency

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.
