Stax SR-009: Best Headphone Ever Made? - Head-Fi TV, Episode 008

Thread Starter 

 

Episode 008 of Head-Fi TV was just uploaded.  This episode is a video review of the new flagship headphone from Stax, the SR-009 electrostatic earspeakers, powered by the Woo Audio WES electrostatic headphone amplifier.

 

Thanks to Jack Wu of Woo Audio for letting us borrow his personal Stax SR-009 (that he went to Japan to pick up earlier in the spring).  Jack also let us borrow one of Woo Audio's flagship WES electrostatic headphone amps.

 


 

Products mentioned in the video:

Jude, what source were you using in this WES > SR-009 rig?

HD650s? I thought LCD-2s were expensive. Do I want a car, or possibly the best headphones ever created...

:drool:

I don't much like dark headphones. This seems like everything I could ask for in a headphone.

 

Too bad about that price tag!

Great review Jude!

WOOOW this is crazy considering the price. Some people give out even more for speakers...

 

I think my ears will never be treated with something like this X/

That's certainly the last word in affordability, eh?

I wonder whether I'm willing to eat only ramen for the next 3 years...

post #12 of 377

When you follow the video to watch it on youtube, you see 1 user doesn't like the video. 5$ as that was Jude disliking his own video.

post #13 of 377

I wonder if I'll have enough money for this when I'm 60 years old...Goal: set.

post #14 of 377

any comments comparing the detail of these to the detail of the JH3A prototype at canjam? cause i felt those were some of the most detailed headphones id ever heard, and i think many would agree

I would LOVE to hear the SR-009 myself. I found the SR-007 slightly too dark for my likings, if SR-009 is brighter and better, I am sure to rob a bank or something... tongue.gif
