    Audio is a main hobby, I got back into serious headphone listening in the mid '90's. My first quality headphones were Stax SR-X Mk3 with SRD-7 energizer box purchased late 70's when they were the top performing headphone available. I deeply regretted selling them some years later and eventually found a like new pair second hand which I still own along with the rare PRO bias version.


    Life is too short to listen to bad headphones.... Love dem electrostatics......[​IMG]
