But to his srm 001 mk 2 works

I haven't hooked my adaptor to my Srm 002

Later on I will try it and let you know .

We also looking and trying to build DIY adaptor for our Srm 002
Because the battery can last only 5 - 6 hours
We try use rechargeable battery to cut the cost but one use battery biggrin.gif

I have the answer from Stax Japan as follow :

Cables for SR-002 SR-003MK2
Yes, you can change (Use) SR-003MK2's Cable with SR-002, and the contrary way is also made.
(Can connect (use) SR-002's cable with SR-003MK2)

2. Driver unit for SR-003MK2
Yes, of course you can use any type Drivers like SRM-252S, 006tS, 007tII and 727II, etc.

Wow, I had no idea they made the cable detachable now. That's excellent and saves the hassle of having to make an adapter. Thumbs up to Stax.

Yep it is as said in our pm discussion, don't pull by the cable though, it requires a slight of force but detaching/attaching it too much you will stuff up the small pins in the plug.

Do you have a source for which you can buy replaceable cables for these, (either the proprietary portable amp cable or the pro-bias SR-003 one) ?

LOL, yeh the thing is, where does one buy replacement cable's from? Now that is the question...

 

Stax's idea on self-replaceable parts is pretty awesome but getting those parts (except the new in production line stuff) is PITA.

The cable has always been detachable, ever since the first version.  Pull off the cover on the earphones and it reveals the metal contacts.

I wonder how many people never realize this? I just told a friend of mine, and he too was surprised.

Indeed, initially I found about this from the original SR-001 thread thanks to Catscratch and HeadphoneAddict. Little surprises.

Are these comfortable? And can one use these portably? I think these are open-aired right?

post #161 of 441

These are nice, thought the stax was dead when hearing they were bought.

I won't say they're comfortable but they're not painful either. Would love to see if some kind of more comfortable mod can be made to it - custom tips maybe?

They kinda just hang off my ear at least (during demo, didn't buy one in the end).

Definitely can be used portably with the SRM-002. But yes open-aired - wouldn't recommend using it on the streets nor cafe unless you crank the vol up...in which case everyone else around can hear your music.

Here is the inside of the portable amp, for those who are interested in this stuff.  Could probably double the battery life, and lower the weight, by replacing the 2xAA holder with a lithium polymer pack.

Comfortable? They are just alright depending on your ear though, you can slip other tips on but the standard oval rectangulish tips don't go in your ear-canal, hence why these are not called earbuds or your regular IEM. I get a itchy sensation in my ears after few hours of usage but hey that's just me.

 

You can use them as portables only with the SRM portable amplifier units though.

 

They have an open design, poor isolation and not good in noisy environments due to its large open meshed port on the faceplate side but given the way stats work they need to be open aired.
