    Never heard Stax before but I took the plunge, 3100 kit is on its way!

    Thanks for your comments. I agree about the transparency, neutrality and speed of the L300. Do you think that bass is more cut off on L300 than HD800 or could be similar.
    This is the point that I am afraid.

    Dont know about you guys, but I listen to all sorts of music genres and to me, the L300's bass is just 'on point'. Never too boomy, never lacking, never bleeds and always..always fast

    I heard more sub-bass roll-off in the HD 800. Effective EQ can fix this for any headphone, but I never felt the need with STAX.

    The SR-L300 is a bit bassier than the SR-207 and SR-Lambda overall.

    Welcome to the Stax world! Fair warning though, you may never want to go back to Dynamics :p

    I use TH-X00 Purplehearts as my bass-heavy "fun" cans to pair with my Stax. Everything else in my collection just sits.

    Just got my STAX SRM-3100s in. They sound good! Clean tight bass that stays clean coming into the mids. Everything sounds defined and punchy and detailed. I like the sound so far! The highs are good and the headphone seems very neutral to me especially with the energizer that comes in the pair. I like the sound and really cant complain. Id just like someone to verify with me that the highs are sibilant before i think im crazy.

    maybe im just not used too so much detail?

    I’m in for a treat then! Excited to share my thoughts.

    All three Lambdas I owned were a little peaky in the 7-10 kHz range, but that's much less of a problem than peaks around 4-6 kHz (which is more common in dynamic driver headphones that tend to sound a lot more sibilant) and it's easy to fix with EQ.

    Quick question, does the l700 pads work on the l300?

    If so, worth the upgrade?

    Quick answer, search function.

    Got it, thanks

    Yes and maybe depending on your goal. If you find the stock pads are uncomfortable (as i did), then the L700 pads will cure that. However, don't expect an improvement in sound. In my case, the lowest bass is not as pronounced with the L700 pads.

    I will try the l300 pad first then go from there!

    So it’s day 3 and now I’m having a pretty big channel imbalance in my L300s! The right driver is significantly lower than the left and seems to distort very easy. I’m not sure what happened to them

    Imbalance still? I thought they would have gotten to the bottom of this problem by now.
