So me to be really really honest, I do like SS-100 very very much and find them best sounding headphones till now for me :)But have no experience with Stax... finding only them to be real competitors for them.
In some aspects they are really unique, lushness, smoothness, coherence, vocals, 3D presentation, presence of sound, non fatiguing style, all are exceptional. But You have to know that these are old. The foam holding inner foil with planar coil may be in bad condition, they are over 35 years old.

OK Guys, who ordered 002 model? I have been asking Łukasz and he told me tham some units are going to be send, so I have to wait for mine for feb/march.

And of course more classy and smooth than other headphones I give them to try (even th900 or hd800)   Cheers and congrats
