I then listen almost every day at work unless I'm in meetings, so let's say 6 hours average per day all electrostatic. I get a few hours in every night on the home rig and some more extended listening on the weekends... all electrostatic. Sorry, long answer! smily_headphones1.gif

3. What percent of listening is with electrostatic headphones? I'm surprised, my commute time adds up, but I still listen to over 80% stats.

 

Same thing commuting... IEMs are really great against the good ole Tube noise and people chattering around. The other bonus, after the IEMs, the big stat rig is pure heaven. :) I didn't add up the former as they are not technically headphones, they are in ear monitors. :beyersmile: Then again, Stax are considered by some earspeakers... oh well I give up.

1. almost every day. Let's say 5 days a week

2. from 5 minutes (shot of stat's ecstasy) to 4-5 hours

3. 90% stats. SR-5 stays on substitute's bench, SR-009 isn't in my main room (got to get a SRM-252s !), SR-Lambda NB is my every day marvel.

Oh, yes : 10% are for HD600 + O2 amp.

Wow, I realize I definitely don't listen that much!

1. How many days a week do you listen to headphones?

2-3 times + commute

2. How many minutes or hours in a typical session?

2-3h + commute

3. What percent of listening is with electrostatic headphones?

100% except commute (iems + dap during commute).

1. How many days a week do you listen to headphones? 6-7

2. How many minutes or hours in a typical session? 1 - 5 hours typical sometimes a marathon 10+ hours

3. What percent of listening is with electrostatic headphones? um...err...0% right now, the LNB are on a shelf not getting much love, PS500 are tops right now (lots of computer time for me), HD800's with movies and TV, JH Roxanne's for zoning out and shutting out the world.

 

But I will say I am on the edge of a cliff thinking about getting the SR-009 and either a BHSE, or WES...just need a good shove...

Get the SR-009 and the BHSE

post #1401 of 3742

Get the O2 Mk1's and the BHSE

post #1402 of 3742

That too..

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.

Sennheiser Orpheus with Aristeus amp.

 

Stax Omega with DiyT2.

post #1406 of 3742

Those too...but EOL for the HE90 and Lil Knight is MIA with the boards production for KG's amp's I need to buy a Megatron board :(

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...................

post #1408 of 3742

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?
