    Audeze LCD-X vs Stax 007 / 009

    Question For Stax 009 & HD800 Fans Who Like Electronic Music

    I've been steadily upgrading my gear over the last several years. Currently, I'm running a Headroom Max into HD800s.   I went through several different upgrades on my way to the HD800s, with the previous step being the HD650s. Of course, both are awesome, but the HD800s are SO much more...

    How much of an upgrade would a Stax SR-007a Mk2 be over an HE-500

    Like the HE-500 but the bug has bitten.  How much of an upgrade would the Stax be?  Night and day or subtle?  Thanks   I assume the plug on the Stax is a standard balanced plug, and any good amp can be used correct?

    STAX SR007 Resonance Problems?

    I don't recall seeing this issue raised before about the 007A.  The other day as I was listening to my 007A (Serial # SZ2-1286) I noticed that if I tapped the metal bands in the arc assembly (as Stax calls it) I could hear a low frequency  ringing for a bit over a second. Now I have always...

    Stax-SR007 Is there a way to change the ear pads so that they don't scratch against my ears?

    I need a slightly longer or wider earpad to increase the distance between my left ear and the surface of earspeaker.  I know that this might alter the sound signature but when I am listening to them; I just don't fell relaxed and it ruins my listening sessions.  Is this also going to be a...

    My Stax SR-007- - Does It Need to be Repaired?

    When I replaced one of the ear pads on my 007s the part of the metal spring that fits in the center of the pad attachment plate slipped through the plate and made a small tear in the plastic membrane (?) below the plate.   The sound, at least for now, is unaffected. Do I need to get this...
