When it comes to moving air, Electrostatic headphones (or speakers) at ANY PRICE suck worse then a dust buster.
Maybe if your old and only listen to Polka Music then Electrostatics are the way to go. lol jk
But seriously I wouldn't buy an electrostatic even it was free, they don't do what I want them to do.
pretty happy with the bass performance of SR-507 (metal, classical orchestra + piano, hip-hop)... Was not happy with DT48e, K271 or SA-5000...Those all had a major bass roll-off that made you go 'wtf, where is the low end' (sold within days of purchase). SR-507 goes deep enough to be genre-versatile and the low end amount is good too.
Also, Ice Cube disagrees the bass is not enough
.... [FLAC] [04:20] Ice cube - greatest hits - 10 - It Was A Good Day </44 kHz/861 kbps/26.72 MB/> (worst case you can eq the low end + 3, 2, 1 db at 60, 80, 100hz, if you feel it's not enough. I don't really)
The kind of argument, 'it doesn't sound like i'm in a club near a 25inch sub, hence it has bad low end performance' just doesn't cut it.
It's exactly that - it's not a 25inch sub, but it doesn't intend to be one
Aside from that, I hate the SR-507 headband (squeezes the bottom of my ears against the mesh... well, bottom of my face really. great design there stax) and they're kinda heavy. But that's rectifiable by buying an old style headband assembly, which is what I did. I also wished stax made a closed version of them, but yea...Edited by svyr - 8/6/11 at 5:49am
