I think what's needed for Stax 'phones are the headphone equivalent of speaker wire trestles. Little ceramic holders that you stick to your clothing and furniture with velcro, they hold the headphone cable away from touching you or your furniture so your electromagnetic field doesn't contaminate the music signals ( or whatever the pseudoscience behind speaker wire trestles says they're supposed to do...)

 

Really dedicated headphiles would super-glue the trestles to their skin.  

 

And I thought of a great name for this product -  they could be called "Tresticles" -

Today I am going to try my KGSS-A with Stax Sigma normal bias. :D

Never seen one but it's just a couple of chip amps driving transformers.  The pics you posted were useless though.

Does your vintage lambda's have that 'special smell'? Like a smell of old electronics...

My old Lambdas smelt like cigarettes couldn't get the smell out so sold it.

My LNB's smell as clean as the day we bought them.

Hi everyone, looks like we moved to a new thread eh?

Has anyone tried building something similar to the ED-1 to try and equalize the lambdas? Seems like it could be a fun DIY project if I could build one that did roughly the same thing the original did.

My Stax headphones all have no special smell. But I see what you mean, smells are very hard to get off headphones.

According to spritzer the Stax mafia has attempted on a diy version but ended up too complicated to build and to get right if it were to be released for the masses.

Dang, that's quite unfortunate. It would be fun to build one for the lulz.

Stick your smelly headphones in a sealed bag with a bar of nice smelling soap for several months. I find that gets rid of nasty smells like that.

Also worth changing the ear pads (or washing) if velour as smells can get ingrained in them, even the after shave you wear wink.gif

When I first got my pair of Denon AHD-7000 (new) they had a light but very nice smell that I think was related to the wood finish.  Hard to describe.  It faded after a week or so.  I found I almost never listened to my AHD-7000's. They were kinda nice in some ways, and certainly pretty to look at, but the sound wasn't really what I like.  I sold them so I could afford more electrostatic stuff smily_headphones1.gif

 

All of my Stax 'phones were used when purchased, but had no smells.  Guess I've been lucky in that.
