Thanks Birgir.

One other question that sounds silly but you may be able to answer Birgir which is, with an adapter, could Stax headphones work via the Senn headphone socket and vice versa.
This is something I'll never try, but I'm just curious.

Yes, it will work but you will need a Stax to HE90 adapter.  My BHSE has both Stax & HE90 jack and I also have the Stax to HE90 adapter as well.  However, the Stax phones will sound better out of the Stax Pro outlet as the bias voltage is less on the HE90 socket.  So the Stax phones out of the HE90 socket will not be driven with the optimum voltage.

Thanks purk. As I said, I'll probably never try what I've ask, I was just interested to know.

In fact I'll never buy a Senn stats headphone, unless Sennheiser was to start building headphones like the HE-90 again, then I might be tempted.

Yup, that pretty much covers it.  The only differences between the outputs are the plugs, bias voltages and the ballast resistors used to load the diaphragms.
