Flat Sound Signature

A Flat sound signature offers an accurate presentation of sounds without adding colour to your music. Simply put, this sound signature presents audio without boosting any frequencies. As a result, it’s the most natural-sounding signature and provides the closest reproduction of how a track was recorded and produced. Due to their accurate sound reproduction, flat sound signature headphones are preferred by Music professionals, Sound Engineers and used in professional studios for mixing and mastering music tracks and are also loved by audiophiles for immersive listening sessions. You can listen to Classical, Rock, Jazz, Blues, Folk & possibly every genre in music.

Ideal for Audiophiles

These Wired Headphones are designed for discerning music lovers. If you are someone who cares about audio quality deeply, you'll want a pair of Wired Headphones like these. You can expect these Wired Headphones to present you with a refined listening experience. The audio quality exhibited by these Wired Headphones is a beautiful mix of musicality, technical brilliance and high precision. These Wired Headphones deliver a spacious and open soundstage that compares listening to music on actual speakers.

Electrostatic Drivers

Headphones with Electrostatic drivers operate on a radically different principle than conventional driver technologies. They feature an extremely thin diaphragm suspended between two electrified plates and use static electricity to move the diaphragm, meaning there are no moving parts inside. This means when audio signals are released across the plates, the entire diaphragm membrane moves back and forth due to electrical attraction and repulsion. Headphones with Electrostatic drivers are highly sensitive and present an accurate sound. Electrostatic drivers are virtually distortion-free due to their technical build and require special amplifiers to use them.

Open-Back Design

Headphones with an Open-Back design are rather special in that they allow air to pass through the headphone ear cups to the speaker. What this means is that since open-back headphones don’t block surrounding noises as closed-back do, you’ll be able to enjoy an immersive sound experience. The sound is more natural and high fidelity due to the lack of pressure build-up. Open-back headphones create a feeling of space, presenting a feeling as if the musicians are all sitting around you. These headphones are perfect for critical listening sessions and mixing and mastering music due to their accurate soundstage presentation.

STAX INTRODUCES A UNIQUE EARSPEAKER + ENERGISER COMBO - THE SRS-3100

STAX, founded in 1938, is a Japanese company that makes high-end audio equipment. Twenty-two years later, in 1960, Stax released its first Electrostatic Earspeaker, the STAX SR-1. Over the following thirty-six years, STAX produced a variety of amplification, Earspeaker, tonearm, CD player, DAC, phono cartridge and loudspeaker products. With STAX SRS-3100, they have introduced an Earspeaker + Energiser combo. The earspeaker is STAX - SR-L300, an open-back Electrostatic Earspeaker which gets its power from the STAX - SRM-252S Energiser, which acts as a driver unit for the STAX - SR-L300. This Earspeaker and Energiser combo delivers an exceptional sonic performance with clear, transparent and flat sound with delicate highs, soothing mids and deep bass.

STAX - SRM-252S ENERGISER FOR STAX - SR-L300 DELIVERS CLEAN AND DISTORTION-FREE AUDIO OUTPUT

The SRM-252S is an Energiser for STAX Earspeakers. This driver unit works as an Amplifier/Energiser. Pair your Earspeakers with the SRM-252S and enjoy the best world of music. With its premium PRO-bias 5-pin connector, the STAX - SRM-252S serves as; an output terminal for connecting your Earspeakers. The connectable equipment is a pre-/integrated amplifier ("REC OUT '' or "PRE OUT '' terminal), CD player, cassette deck, tuner, video deck, DAT/MD deck, etc. You can directly connect line output or the headphone jack of a portable audio player to the driver unit. You can also simultaneously connect it to a loudspeaker thanks to the parallel output terminal. The "PARALLEL OUT" terminal is a direct output connected to "INPUT". To drive a loudspeaker, it can also be connected to another driver unit or an amplifier. When the Earpeakers STAX - SR-L300 are paired with SRM-252S Energiser, it brings the Earspeakers to life, delivering clean and distortion-free audio output. New high-voltage transistors and low-noise FETs are installed for the best audio experience. The emitter-follower design enables the output stage to generate a smooth and rich sound. The SRM-252S features a simple design that is high on functionality. The class-A amplification does not have any coupling capacitors allowing you to hear your music with every detail and subtle nuance. This driver unit is the size of a CD jacket case. The aluminium extrusion chassis does away with the heat caused by the inbuilt Class-A DC amplifier while, at the same time, improving its reliability.

NOTE: When the pre-/integrated amplifier connected to "PARALLEL OUT" is powered off, the sound might be distorted because of the lowered input impedance. In this case, either power on; the pre-/integrated amplifier or disconnect the cable.

Pristine!

Hi there, if you are considering pulling the trigger on the SRS-3100 system, please have a look at a small snippet of my experience with them:

After spending thousands of rupees on different types of headphones & IEMs over the last 10 years, I was finally in a space where I sought something which can be considered to be 'endgame' gear i.e. something which will satisfy my expectations and requirements on the reproduction of sound and prevent me from loitering around the market for new gear within a week or month of purchasing it. I prefer genres like rock, post-rock, ambient, down-tempo, classical, vocals and not into EDM, or hip-hop which would be enhanced by bass heavy headphones.

I had come across Stax a few years ago but was always put off by the price tag. However, after having researched on the way they reproduce sound (electrostats) and the (few) reviews available online, I decided to pull the trigger.

Some of the issues regarding the build quality are true and you would not expect them to be all plastic. Having said that, I felt that with a bit of care it should be manageable. The cable is long, heavy and sturdy and in general the system is not meant to be portable and best enjoyed when connected to your desktop/laptop in a fixed place. The 'energizer' unit is sturdy and made of metal and is responsible for driving the headphone appropriately. Do note that the headphone does not have a 3.5mm jack and mandatorily requires an amp/energizer to drive it. The energizer unit is powered using a 12V adapter and gets a bit warm over prolonged usage but that's nothing to worry about.

The headphones themselves are pretty comfortable to wear in my case contrary to the reviews available publicly. The pads are thin indeed but I did not face discomfort over long term usage (2-5 hours) however, your mileage may vary depending on the shape and size of the ears. The clamping force is not very strong and in general provides a comfortable fit. The headband can be further adjusted as needed to achieve the fit needed. To summarize, the headphone needs to be handled with care and you may face some discomfort over long use (I didn't).

Coming to the sound, I will refrain from using technical jargons and instead stick to describing the experience in simple words. As told above, my music taste does not involve music requiring heavy bass (which the headphone lacks). However, the bass response is tight, responsive and appropriate without overpowering the entire experience. Considering the music I listen to, I found it to suffice without leaving me wanting for more. The mids and highs are exceptional and music which has been mastered/recorded well really shines! Hearing music with vocals makes you feel like the singer is sitting right next to you. Binaural and stereo effects and other minor nitty-gritties in the song are prominently reproduced and I got to re-discover and enjoy a lot of tracks from my old catalogue. The music sounds airy with lots of detail and overall a huge leap from what I was used to!

Being open-back headphones, they offer no isolation whatsoever and consequently leak considerable sound outside and hence best enjoyed in a quiet room without too much ambient noise.

Having used the system for around a week, I can confidently recommend the Stax SRS-3100 to anyone who seeks to hear music as intended by the folks mastering//mixing them with pristine clarity.

Hey, this makes us super happy! So glad to know that you love them:) Happy listening !!

I started my Audiophile journey by purchasing Fiio Q1, expecting it would improve my music listening experience. But unfortunately I could not hear any difference. Hence I brought Audio Technica ATH-MSR7, still could not hear noticable difference. Then I moved to Chord Mojo, still was not able hear noticable difference for the price I paid. Then kept trying Tin hifi T2, KZ - ZS10 PRO, BEYERDYNAMIC - DT 770 PRO, iBasso - DC01 with Balanced cable with Tin hifi T2.

I had started to believe that my hearing are not meant for audiophile gear, as I can't make out the difference between the gears I had purchased. As a last try, and as part of my collection, I thought I will buy a mid range audiophile headphones. Contacted Headphone Guru to talk about Auduze LCD-2 Classics vs LCD-X. First Varun called me and checked my preferences and schedule another call with senior member. To my suprise Raghav called me. I was also interesed in Stax, so enquired about STAX as well with Raghav and Raghav also suggested my STAX. Immedialy placed order for SRS-3100 combo.

Man they just awesome. Songs I had listened, earlier sound allt ogether different in very possitive way. There are minute details in the songs which I had never heard. Now I am able listen to songs they way they were meant to be listened to. Finally a music gear which made me feel money well spent.

Listen to dilbur[Satyameva jayate] song, on other headphone, you will feel the recording is not great, but listen through STAX it will reveal the real sound in the song.
