post #676 of 3031
what stands are you guys using for your Sr-009s? I decided to not get my from Price Japan and will be getting them from Justin instead. So they will be here much sooner, figure I need to get a stand lined up. I don't like the stands that have the pads against the body of the stand, I want one more where it just suspends the headphones by the headband. I was looking at this one http://www.amazon.com/Just-Mobile-Direct-HS-100BK-HeadStand/dp/B00BR3OPKU/ref=pd_cp_pc_1

A question for the experts: I recently purchased a 007 mk. 1 from Yahoo.jp, a seller that calls itself a "store."  I've purchased there before without issues.  The headphone arrived in good shape but with no serial number, which sent off alarms.  I've been comparing this to another pair I own, and the sound appears very close.  I've written to the seller for clarification, but wondered if anyone has  experience with this sort of thing, and any thoughts.  Thank you in advance for your advice.

I had a custom one made out of stainless steel at a local weldshop. Had the curve done to match the arc, and put some padding/leather over top. Total cost was about $40. It doesn't have 009s on it yet though, just waiting until PJ comes through.

It could possibly be that the serial number sticker naturally just came off.  On my former pair it was actually already starting to come off a bit on the corners.

Thanks K19, wanting to think it's nothing more than that.  But if so, is there ever any way to verify authenticity?

No such thing as fake 007s...

Stax earspeakers without serials is rather normal amongst Lambda models possibly the same for the O2's. Prototype units?

I use both of these for 007's, 009's, Omegas, etc... The one on the left is available from Thomann and the one on the right from Woo.

oh I like that one, thanks!

You'll see they have different woods to select from.... not cheap, but nice build.  

 

I wish they were a little higher so that when you are hanging the headphones form the plastic frame (in the case of the 009) instead of the leather band it would sit higher giving more room for the cables leaving the bottoms of the headphones.  If they are hanging on the leather headband, no issues...

Thanks DefQon, it's probably nothing, and the two pairs sound very much alike side by side, but was disappointing to be minus the serial tag.

ah, that was gonna be my next question was whether it was tall enough to hang from the outside frame instead of the leather suspension part...

Just barely, 

 

Really bad picture, but you get the point, they just barely touch when hanging from the outside frame.  The Woo is actually the best for adjusting so they hang from the outside frame and don't come close to touching.  Two 007's hang on that Woo perfectly.

Thanks for the picture! I think I will probably just go with that Woo stand then, I just want to give them a bit more space.

I use that same Woo Audio stand and it's all I would want in a stand. It's nothing fancy but works for my SR007 and HD800 :)
