I'm sorry you didn't like the way I came off to you. But yea, apart from that, what's the update?

I have an IDEA about what may be causing this issue (channel imbalance).

 

I used to work as an IT and the company CEO insisted on wearing polyester shirts. His (expensive) laptop

kept crashing, and eventually required a new hard drive. This happened 4 times in less than 12 months,and

to 3 new machines. Eventually the only thing left was STATIC DISCHARGE from his clothing to his laptop casework.

 

The problem went away once he started wearing cotton mix shirts.

 

So, anyone having a channel imbalance with the 009s or other Stax headphones, it may be worth looking at this.

I know from swopping out PC chip sets, I had to wear an earthing strap around my wrist. And some folk do carry

around more static than others. Some cars can get static build up as well.

 

This would also explain why storing the 009s for a week fixes the issue (for a while), as they would then discharge.

Remember, laptops running of a battery cannot discharge static away down the main cable. Also units mounted

on wooden shelves or glass shelves likewise.

 

Something to consider you guys?

Yes this can also apply to some types of furnishings. I remember certain types of man-made materials like carpets used to suffer from static buildup. In some circumstances you could get one hell of a jolt from them!

For those that have had to send equipment back to STAX from the US (or comparable distance) to have something like an imbalance issue fixed, how long did it take to make the repair? Is it fairly easy to send, say, an SR-009 or SR-007 to STAX to have it repaired? This question might be too general but I'm just curious about the options after one's warranty has expired.

post #324 of 638

I have the same problem with my SR-009.   The left side gives out half the volume of the right side.  I will wait for a few weeks to see if it will return to normal.  I have to say I am quite disappointed with Stax.  

 

I bought mine from PJ 3  months ago.

I believe mine is still under warranty, I bought it from pricejapan a little over a year ago. I was just asking in general, as MacedonianHero pointed out :p

 

I think I also need to try to keep a "straight face" so to speak, to avoid so many STAX farts.

I AM SERIOUSLY WORRIED ABOUT THE 009 ISSUES GUYS!!!!!!!!!

I am about to buy a new pair of 009s tomorrow, and I see still some are having problems with the dreaded imbalance thing.

I was told by my dealer in the UK it was the first batch only back in 2011, and the UK importer stopped importing the 009s.
Then it was sorted. But here we are, today Samsie has a 3 month old model from PJ that is going wrong.

I AM SERIOUSLY WORRIED ABOUT THIS. 5,000 US is a lot of money for a headphones with 12 months warranty that
could become USELESS JUNK in 13 months time.

Why or how can a company like Stax get into a situation like this beggars belief.

Riight now I am thinking stick with my (working) 007s Mk2s...............
