    KOSS ESP-950 Thread

    I have the M1060 as well as the ESP 950, and I would agree on the comparison. I listen a lot with the ESP 950’s, not very much with the M1060

    Monoprice Electrostatic Headphone

    Yes you should keep all electrostatic headphones covered when not in use. One member used a shower cap to keep dust out when not in use. I use either the case or a gallon sized zip lock bag.

    Monoprice Electrostatic Headphone

    Yes you are lucky to get a set. I am hoping that they will introduce an improved version, better bass and maybe they could fit it with a Stax plug. Improved amps, portable and desk top would be nice as well.

    Shoxlab Electrostatic headphones on eBay

    So while l looking on eBay, I stumbled across these listed as electrostatic headphones. Ni info from the seller as to bias and any other specs. I looked at the picture, and at the yoke hinge , it has ATH-M50x ! So it turns out it is a rebadged Audio Technica dynmaic headphone set.

    Stax SRM-1/MK2 hum question

    I purchased a SRM-1/MK2 that has one socket modded for pro bias. After nit is on for 5-10 minutes I get a hum in the left channel, The pro bias side is louder than the normal bias. It looks to me that all the electrolytic caps have been updated. So any ideas as to what may be causing the...

    Monoprice Electrostatic Headphone

    If I was to venture a guess, I would say the amp. I looked at them on eBay, both channels are mentioned as having static.

    Monoprice Electrostatic Headphone

    Since Monoprice has a 30 day money back guarantee you only have postage to loose. I have been tempted to buy a 2nd pair just to have in reserve, but then again I could say the same about the ESP950.

    Monoprice Electrostatic Headphone

    Yes, but they do lack bass. They have a very clear picture of the recording being played. They might be a bit cleaner on the mids and highs than the Koss ESP-950, but very close.

    Monoprice Electrostatic Headphone

    Ya that is a very good price for them. The Koss esp-9XX are $450 on Drop. Both are good prices, the Koss are a bit better over all, but the Monoprice arer still good.

    The Koss ESP950 thread (ESP owners, please contribute! :)

    Sorry, you could keep an eye on Drop, they sometimes have earpads for the Koss. Avoid the protein leather ones on ebay that sell from $10-$20, they are cheap copies of the tock pads at a higher price.

    Vali 2 tube rolling

    While that works, it may make things worse. Buy a 9 pin socket cheap, and use it. Just insert the tube and they will come out straight.

    Monoprice Electrostatic Headphone

    I have tried them on my recently purchased Stax SRM 1/MK II, and they really do sound better that way. Some increase in bass, shows great detail with it.
