Stax headphones - cleaning with compressed air?

  1. CT007
    What's the best way to clean Stax? Send them back to Stax, and have them do it for me? Send to a Stax Cleaning Specialist(SCS)? Is a certain air pressure safe to clean with?

    I would highly recommend against using pressurised air. Use a brush or something soft.

    Like, actually take them apart and brush directly on the driver..? Hmmm.

    That's obviously not what I meant. Just don't touch the drivers and brush off the dust around the headphones. If you really want to use pressurised air, feel free too.

    Not sure how that's not obvious, when dust on the driver is what causes the problems. I emailed Woo Audio to see if they have a real answer. So far, they said,

    "Do NOT blow air into any electrostatic headphones", and offered the CPC-1 dust cover to purchase. Also, "we have never had a STAX headphone damaged from exposure to dust."

    Sounds like Stax are NOT cleanable, if they ever do get dusty/dirty. I'll keep asking around...

    From Staxaudio, "A soft brush would work. Be careful not to blow strong air into it to risk damaging the drivers." Still a bit vague, but it seems light air may be ok.
