Great, thank you. The set I am planning to buy are the SZ2.

Thanks a lot!

 

I'll try to manage it :-))

BTW: I was yesterday in Frankfurt talking to a gib audio dealer who is the Stax person in town. He didn't know about the SR 009!!!

For SR-009 owners, have you noticed the sound signature change over time? My SR-009 arrived today and I'm curious about "break-in" concerning STAX headphones.

Agreed mostly here. While some changes may happen over time, I usually find them very little and nothing to concern myself with. With regards to the SR-009s, I heard no changes.

Electrostatic transducers don't benefit from burn-in as it does not exist to the concept of how it works compared to a conventional dynamic or planar magnetic driver due to moving parts. So far the only person that says burn-in exist for stat's is pkshan, but he must've been high or drunk biggrin.gif

The only thing I notice with my 25+ year old Stax is that they take a few minutes to charge up.  Other than that they have not changed in all that time.  What does make a difference is the amp or energizer you use but not due to any kind of burn in.

In the Stax factory tour interview, it is clearly stated that they burn in their newly made earspeakers for continous one week (I assume its continous) so that make 170 hours roughly.

 

Also I am reinsured in my choice of the 006TS as until recently they were always testing their earspeaker designs with the T1.

Still don't hear no differences here and I've got two pairs of Lambda Pro's now. One that's been used with almost 5000 hours on them and one that is NOS sealed until I started using them. Maybe the 009's benefit from burn-in? I don't know.

This has been discussed many times before. The reason they do it is to weed out defective ones, not to burn them in.
Besides, what the interview stated or what they do or don't is not necessarily gospel.

What gospel!? There is no magnet and paper cone to routine, but there IS a physical mechanism that is in play, otherwise they would not need to burn them!

Don't spread gospel please while you said not to believe to it wink_face.gif

Well you are Lucky to be able to do A/B test easily thus we are inclined to believe burn in don't affect sonic performance.
