Stax SR-009: Best Headphone Ever Made? - Head-Fi TV, Episode 008 - Page 16

Mulberry you have no clue what you're talking about, sorry.  Why don't you tell me what the impedance curve looks like for a K1000 vs an electrostat?

post #227 of 393
I have both palms on my face. And I'm thinking about asking the bartender to put a couple more palms on my face.

The K-1000 is NOT an electrostat. It's a dynamic.

I know. I have one right here.

As for a portable powering it... I'm going to print that out and use it to fertilize the lawn. That's some mighty fine nightsoil. (Caution: do not use nightsoil to fertilize anything you grow as food.)

If you look at the K-1000's owner's manual, it states that you need a power amp (one for speakers) with at least 8W of power.

From personal experience over the past five years of owning a K-1000, that's about right.

No... it's not that bright. But it's a lot brighter than using the 007.

Uh-oh.

The SR-009 are fairly priced given they are at the very top end of headphones, it's nothing like paying out $57,000.00 for a Meridian DSP80000 speaker,

Where is that random dubstep at the end of the video from?

post #232 of 393

It's from a track by Twis7 called "Ghetto Bass - Original Mix" from the Bass Rinse EP.  It's used courtesy of Play Me Records.

post #235 of 393

There is no denying the value proposition of these beauties. Affordability makes the difference.

I am not sure how anyone sitting in a bar alone late on a Monday night, viewing head-fi and typing away on his i phone can be condescending!

Have any of you guys tried the SR-009 with dubstep?

 

How is it?

 

Btw, is the SR--009 the most neutral headphone in existence? From the FR graphs at Innerfidelity the LCD 3 seems more neutral. Anyone who's listened to both here?
