    Focal Bathys - Wireless ANC Over-Ear Headphone

    Any s22 ultra owners here? Does DAC mode work for these phones?

    The Stax SR-L500 and SR-L700 Impressions Thread

    Is it crazy to ask for velour pads on L700s? Leather is nice and all but in terms of comfort, I still prefer velour/suede over leather/pleather (plus less sweat inducing).

    Fostex TH900 MkII

    I know that they are technically two 'different' types of headphones but, do people prefer 900s over 909s? Or vice versa? I heard that a lot of people hated 909 for losing 900's V-shape signature sound with lukewarm bass and bloated mid.

    The Stax SR-L500 and SR-L700 Impressions Thread

    My bad I was referring to headphone/earspeaker outputs, not inputs. Having said that, do you guys rotate the grills so that the thicker plastic part is on the other side and not touching your ear tips? Or do you guys use an adapter with oval pads?

    The Stax SR-L500 and SR-L700 Impressions Thread

    Quick question: in relation to 2 pro bias inputs on 353x, which one is the best one to connect to? Or it doesn't matter if you use to top or bottom one?

    STAX SRM-D50

    Thanks for the info. I remember my previously owned SRM-252S (paired with L300) had buzzing issues. I remember trying various troubleshooting from plugging the power brick to different wall outlets to trying different cables though, none of them fixed the buzzing noise so I had to return it for...

    STAX SRM-D50

    Ah I see, it's just that D50s are priced same if not, similar to L700 MK2s so I wasn't sure if it's worth getting it over 353x or even 252s if you're not too fussy over input options. Having said that, can you elaborate on the 'warranty issues' that D50 has?

    STAX SRM-D50

    I'm curious to know if pairing D50 with L700 is worth it over D10 or other cheaper energizers. I feel like D50 is more geared towards Omega series...

    Stax L700 MK2 or Sennheiser HD800s?

    Hi guys, I'm having a hard time choosing between HD800s and L700 MK2. I have auditioned both headphone/earspeaker, and both were excellent to my ears. I love the large soundstage from HD800s while, detailed and fast sounds from L700 MK2 are hard to ignore as well. Comfort wise, there are no...

    Are the L700 MK.2s free from dust problems? Can I treat these like I treat dynamic headphones (e.g. hanging the headphones on a stand with dust covers)?

    Anyone using 800s with JDS Labs element/el stacks? If so, what is your experience with them?

    The AKG K712 Pro Support and Impressions Thread

    This might be a wrong thread to ask but, what is considered an "upgrade" from K712 Pro? Been looking for a replacement for a while and I've yet to find a true upgrade from K712.

    JDS Labs Element

    Hmm, it looks like people are using tubes for these headphones, especially that produces fairly "warm" sound. I'm ready to pull the trigger on either HD800s or T1 2nd gen but, at the same time, I don't think I can stretch my budget to get a decent tube amp to replace my Element.

    JDS Labs Element

    Will Element be able to drive HD800s or T1 2nd gen without any problem? I'm interested in getting either of these headphones which, I'm not sure if I need to "upgrade" my current amp/DAC setup or not.

    Sydney. I'll go to any of those places and see how it goes... Though, it might be hard to test it in loud environment as the humming noise is very subtle. The thing is, I use a UPS for my audio setup. I forgot to mention this but, I also tried using a surge board with filtering (Belkin)...

    But where though? Like I've said, I can't test this at my work or go to friend's place since I've just moved. Do I just go to a local library or uni to test it?

    Hey guys, just an update regarding to hum noise in my SRS-3100 set, the local STAX distributor got back to me and told me that there's nothing wrong with my STAX set as they weren't able to identify the humming noise. They have tried different sources and listened via different staff members...

    Thanks for the swift reply. I'll send it in and see how it goes. There's one thing I don't quite get regarding to this issue: why didn't it happen earlier? Like, when I first acquired STAX srs-3100 a month ago? Did the parts inside the amp or power adapter "degraded" slowly to the point where...

    Yes, it also hums when I turn off the 252 (i.e. turning the knob counter clockwise until it clicks and the led goes out). And while the unit is off, when I place my hand on the amp the hum is more prevalent and audible. It's only when I unplug the power (either from the adapter or from back of...

    Hey guys, I'm having this weird noise issue with my L300 + 252s. Basically, I'm hearing this constant weird humming/buzzing noise (?) from the left channel of my L300 whenever I turn on the 252s. It's a one note noise where there are no fluctuations. The noise is present all the time regardless...
