MDR-V6 + A728



Waiting for Beyer pads to restock.
Sorry about the quality, taken with my phone.

I mainly use this setup in bed and during break at work. I'm honestly surprised I don't see more SR-001s on here considering how unwieldy some of the rigs are.
Always wondered about those. I've read there poor in the bass apartment and are fatiguing to wear. What are your comments on that?

And speaking of "big knobs", is your callsin also known as 40 ounce Kevin? I really hope that is the weight of your portable audio setup where talking about

40 oz. is a popular size for cheaper beers here in the states lol.

As far as bass goes I believe the SR-001 MK1 which was made in the earlier half of the 90's was weak in the bass department but the current version definitely doesn't lack bass at all. There is some roll off in the high end but that kind of non-fatiguing presentation has grown on me.

As far as comfort goes these were uncomfortable for the first couple of weeks but you adjust and learn how to insert them into your ears. I think the reason for this is that the shape of your ear canal is oval and so Stax made the nozzle oval. The discomfort comes when you incorrectly align the nozzle with your ear canal. Also you don't need to push them into your ear canal at all they just rest comfortably on top.

A match made in heaven:





Finally, I've found an earbud that doesn't sound like crap, and actually stays in my ear!!!!!

Last picture is for size reference. The magnum is now my primary DAC when I'm out and about with my SR80's....

Using somebody elses camera...so pardon the date stamp. I didn't realize it was there until after I already gave it back

Is it true that the SRM-001 only runs for 5 hours on a pair of batteries?

Really nice!
I still miss my SR-001 MK2. Too bad I could not stand the wearing comfort...

Depends on the batteries.
But from my experience, with some 1800mAh (I think) alkaline batteries, that seems about right.

Niiiceee, shame about the battery life

Mains chargeable? Would be handy.

Oddly enough, they fit my ear PERFECTLY. I'm going on 2 hours with fresh duracells...we'll see.

The set-up is ideal. The footprints matching makes it for an extremely slender and good combination physically, and the sound....awesome. I think I've finally found my permanent portable rig.

Thanks for the compliment!

Of course any body would love to have longer battery life, but I'm going from a logical standpoint. I hardly EVER listen past 5 hours (typical battery life from people reporting) where there wasn't an outlet available for a wallwart. And what's carrying two AA batteries to get 10 hours? Hardly any problem at all. So really, it's not bad at all considering the SQ I'm getting.

Good question - does the SRM-001 have charging circuitry for NiMH? Didn't read anything about it, but would be nice.

Looking at your sign, i guess your a fellow basshead. So how does the stax sr001 perform in your opinion in the bass apartment? Also, is it a MkII model or the MkI model? And from an other tread, i hope i am not offending you, but do you have small ears? There was a theory that people with smaller ears are less sensitive to low frequencies, so the need more signal, and thus prefer headphones with a bassboost.

Edit: I've came across a website once that was about modding the amp of the SR001 system. There seems to be enough room to add a charging circuit if it does not have one already. Maybe swap out the normal batteries with some kind of flat cellphone battery pack.

Here's my rig for now:

In the bag


And out



I have a Minibox E+ on the way since they are supposed to have very good synergy with the Etys. Can't wait to see how it does.
I'm also going to go to the Audiologist next week for molds, so I can have some custom buds made for my Etys. I use the smallest Olives, and I'm still uncomfortable.
So the setup may look very different in a few weeks.

Hah, I do STILL have small ears. I can hear lows just fine.

The 001 has a Grado-like bass, not a DT770 bass if that helps out. I.E. I've grown to appreciate articulate and accurate bass more than HUGE bass. But I do like it from time to time.
