you must use as source like your desktop rigs for example : CD player and is better if you 

add Dac and use your CD player as transport ,

with this set up your sr 003 + Srm 252s must better than sr 002 + Srm 002

 

you can feel like Stax sr 007 mk2.

 

please try with CD player .

 

Thanks rudi.

I've been using lossless music => audirvana plus on a dedicated mac => audiophileo 1 USB converter with purepower upgrade => audio-gd reference 7 DAC rather than just iphone. I think burn-in HAS helped although i suspect the improvement lies more in the amp section.

 

On a side note..... i've been reading about LL/BHSE and 009 last night.... oh gawd... this is an aweful addiction....

Don't think stats do benefit from burn-in at all the way stators work, but it's true that with stat's you should let them charge for a few hours or so. Given that, these things have great PRat.

I am using the same DC power supply for the SR-002 as I am using for my SR-001-- a Radio Shack 4.5v 700mA adapter with interchangeable tips. Sure beats feeding it batteries. In an earlier thread on the SR-001's the consensus was, as I recall, that the sound is better using an adapter, though I can tell no difference.

I and my friends just found out the best SQ fir your Srm 002 with SANYO ALKALINE battery 1,5 volt .

high : very clean and more detail than with other battery 

mid : more sweet and clean and more clear than other battery 

bass: very deep clean sounding bass

separation : is better thar I can hear where the instrument placement 

soundstage : more 3 D

clarity : more clear and better black background

You make a good point there. At least with how I feel, it's more of a "warm up" rather than a "burn-in".

Fit is important, but not difficult IMHO.  Once I get them right they disappear for me, which sometimes give the false impression that they are going to fall out.  I think the bass response if good, neutral not boosted.  They do not have a big bass "impact", but where the recording has some low end to show off, they will not disappoint.

 

If I am hearing much of anything it's a slight peak somewhere in the mids, maybe 800hz-ish... but it's slight and not overwhelming.  They don't do anything offensive, which is good.

 

For me these are not going to turn into walk around portables, I'm sticking with custom IEMs for that.  They are becoming my full time choice in the office (the limited isolation is about perfect for me in that environment) and I can see me packing them for use on business trips, not while on the move, but after reaching my destination (hotel/remote office).

 

I think proper context is necessary. Consider that the OP of that thread and I myself have had considerable experience or own TOTL STAX (or other otherwise) headphones. The 002 really don't compare with them. On the other hand (since I believe there was a question concerning the 002 in relation to the 009), the UERM remind me of the 009 much more in terms of tonal response and simply "getting out of the way". It's not even close, although the 002 do have that characteristic STAX "relaxed" presentation. 

 

For the 002, I found the best fit to be a good seal but with a rather loose fit. I had to ditch the headband because it was pressing in too much resulting in too much of an emphasis in the low mids. This emphasis is always there however. Fortunately, it's not objectionable. The 002 has a polite and forgiving presentation. Maybe too much so for my own tastes.

With the old SR-001 I found the best fit without the headband to be switching left and right and going over-the ear. ( ie Left capsule in Right ear and vice versa). Fit is stable and seal was reasonable. Use this occasionally as a travelling setup fed by an iStreamer. Tasty...

Indeed I found using the headband and then wiggling the tips from side to side inwards to get a better seal and are fairly comfortable. Without the headband these things don't stick in your ear.
