Can't say, never heard the 'man. They may have cleaner treble. Frankly I too am worried by the Unipolar's modded wiring, so I don't use them so much.

After electrocuting myself on a Stax SR-3 (only a little buzz while messing around with the open drivers) I suddenly noticed how uncomfortable I was with the whole idea.post #1368 of 137310/13/14 at 5:37pmpost #1369 of 137310/13/14 at 6:41pmQuote:

AHEM. oops sorry forgot about that part in my enthusiasm.post #1371 of 137310/13/14 at 8:04pm
The Stax are tiny little things, I wouldn't worry about them. Wrap the Unipolar's bare, face-sized drivers with partly-exposed wire running all over around your head - that's a different thing. But they sound better than the SR-5, anyway, so maybe it's worth it.post #1372 of 137310/14/14 at 12:26am
First I have to compete with the over-enthusiastic German headphone community... good 'vintage' senns have gone for stupid prices recently... heaven forbid you try to bid on anything with it's original box.
