    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...

    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.

    The Stax Thread III

    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...

    The Stax Thread III

    Hey guys, I've just received my srs-3100 set with L700 pads/arc assembly though, I was wondering if the L700 pads are really compatible with L300? I've tried snapping the L700 pads onto the L300 (just like stock L300 pads) however, it wouldn't "snap on" like the L300 pads. Instead, I had to...

    Ah, I see. I might consider getting a complimentary speaker to set up along with STAX though even before that, I might consider upgrading to L700 first before thinking about speakers and other headphones. Also, I heard that the driver unit (srm-252s) needs to be warmed up a bit before...

    The Stax Thread III

    Sorry i think I've confused "driver unit" with "energizer". Or vice versa. The driver unit/energizer that I'm getting is srm-252s. I got confused as this unit was referred as both driver unit and energizer. I've put the orders in for srs-3100 (L300 + srm-252s) due to great deal. The shop...

    Thanks for the clarification. That was very easy to understand. Just to confirm, this is for line output from energizer right? The input should have no problem pairing with a desktop DAC to listen to L300? If I do intend to use a speaker along with L300, than I should be getting a suitable...

    The normal L300. Is it still worth it though? I heard that the comfort on L300 is just atrocious where, most users are using thicker pads to fix the comfort issue. Some even go as far as getting the L700 arc assembly so that the clamp force is not tight as the L300 one. I don't know, mate. I'm...

    Hey guys, if I swap out the L300's arc assembly and earpads with L700 ones, will it be same as L700? Or at best, sound close to L700? From what I can see, replacing the pad to L700 will make the sound "warmer" while having slightly wider soundstage which, is similar to how L700 sounds. This...

    Beyerdynamic DT1990 Pro or Sennheiser HD660s

    Yeah, it looks my current K702 Annie is similar to DT1990 while, HD660s is more of relaxing and laid back. I'm more than happy to go for something that is "similar but better" DT1990 Pro, over "new" HD660s. I'll go with DT1990 Pro. Although I mentioned that I was looking for something new in...

    Wireless IEM for exercising

    Hello, I'm looking for a decent quality and durable wireless IEM that I'd like to use it with my phone for doing cardio exercises. There seems to be quite a few options to choose from though, if possible, I'd like some recommendations from the users of head-fi. I also tried looking at...

    If possible I'd like to hear your opinions before I pull the trigger on Schiit products.   I was wondering if the Magni 2 standard and Modi 2 Uber combo will do the job on the PS4?   I've been looking at different amp/DAC for PS4 exclusively for a while which, I was torn between getting a...

    The AKG K712 Pro Support and Impressions Thread

      Thanks for link. This is what I was looking for: http://www.thomann.de/gb/akg_k_702_gel_ear_pad.htm   Still expansive (combined with outrageous shipping fees) but looks like I save about 60 bucks compare to buying it off from my local distributor.   Those gel pads are sure something.

    The AKG K712 Pro Support and Impressions Thread

      K712 uses the memory foam pad so yes, they're the same.   If that's the case, then I guess it will fit on K701 as well?

    Still waiting on restocking of optical modi 2. I've asked the them for availability which they said it will come out "pretty soon".   After months of waiting, it's still not available for purchase.

    Stupid question but can the pads from K712/Annie (memory foam) fit on K701?
