Hello

Stax had a new headphone. The Stax Omega 2 System. Is it better than Sennheiser Orpheus? What is the price of the High-End Stax Omage 2 ( with tube Amplier SRM 007t ) ?

Step 1: Plug power cable into wall. Step 2: Plug other end of power cable into....umm.... Step 0.5: Order something to power with power cable.

I've heard both and, while I'm not a fan of the Orpheus, it smoked the Stax Omega IIs with the tube driver (007t?). The Stax (both setups I heard) were WAY to bright and sibiliant to the point it acually hurt my ears. The Orpheus was warm and musical and flowing though it lacked detail (yes, I did say that) and is insanely priced for what you get. Put another way, the Orpheus would have been a good deal around $2000 USD.

What else can be better than the Big O....
In my opinion, the Stax has no chance of beating it although I think its the amp thats limiting its ability. I wonder how the Kevin Gilmore amp or Darthnut's ultra rare T2 amp + Omega 007 competes with Big O.....
