Am I daft for not really digging either SR-007 that much? They sound too much like the JH13 (non-FP) I have and don't confer enough of the qualities I've come to appreciate from other electrostats (namely a level of astonishingly high resolution).
I have heard them from the likes of formidable energizers such as the modified SRM-727, KGSSHV and Liquid Silk. They pleased me but didn't really knock my socks off.
Is it one of those headphones that you need to spend more time to appreciate how little they do wrong, or am I justified in thinking they're overrated?
The biggest problem in comparing headphones is this habit of swapping from one straight to the next.
Comparing the Senn HE60 to the Stax SR007 Mk1 on a KGSS, I find the HE60 totally addictive and put the Stax to the sice when comparing one straight after the other.
After listening to the HE60, I need at least 3 songs with just the Mk1 to realise how much more musical and overall superior they are to the HE60.
This also works for other headphone comparisons.
The takeaway line here is to listen to one for a good while before swapping to the next.
