I actually really liked the 009 and BHSE I listened to at CanJam.

Did not care for the comfort of the O2 mk1 or mk2 and liked the sound and comfort of the 009 more.

The Abyss AB1366 is better than the 009's. You know how the logic works here right? The bigger the digits in cost, the better.

Unobtanuim headphones matched to unobtanium amp. I just can't seem to find it.

 

And, if I did, I wouldn't be able to afford it.

 

After all, they are made from unobtanium...................

Omega's have been popping up a little more often lately though still very scarce. Prices go sky high for them.

 

The Orpheus on the other hand....there's wiktor if you want a set for $30k - lol

I cannot think about something better than a pair of SR-009, and I´m powering them with a SRM-717, I don´t want to think about a BHSE.

 

Any news about that new amp that Stax was designing?

It has that magical mid-range quality that other cans do not have. IMO, a steal when compared to more pricey headphones, including the current Stax lineup.

From conversation with the sales director last fall, plans were on hold... And indeed, from recent CES event, stax has been working on the other end of the segment with refreshed portable amps/dac combo.

Stax works on one product at a time, my guess is an sr007mk3 next before the amp...

As for myself, I am simply waiting for the bhse that's supposed to arrive by xmas. Oh wait, xmas is well past already, not in time for chinese new year either. So, headamp schedule as usual, I am ok with this smily_headphones1.gif.

Christmas 2015 or 2016 for the BHSE? ;)

 

Hypothetical Stax SR 007 mk3 with less or more lightweight membrane ? ( compared to the 007 mk 2.5). Vents is clogged or not? Your pronostic ?

I've heard rumors that a new Stax amp for SR-009 would be quite costly.

 

Good thing that is you don't have to think about a BHSE anymore :)

The perfect balance between the "all for the mids" sound of more vintage Stax cans (SR-3/5, SR-X) and the extension of recent cans.
