Sonnie,I know those are big time name brand "ear speakers", but I don't anyone that owns any. I guess because most of them are so expensive, especially those that have that signature Stax look to them... starting with the $420 SR-207's. You don't see them discounted much.
Another problem is that there are three lower priced models, which I do not recall. Without being able to listen to them, I hesitate to order and try to return two of the three. There is also the problem if my listening fifteen feet from my receiver. The extension cord would add another expense and possible deteriorate the sound.I would love to be able to contribute to this thread, meaning I wish there was some place in the neighborhood where I could listen to some. I have never had the pleasure, have only heard good things about them though, except for the cost. Stax headphones are a unique bird to be sure, but it seems that once you've listened with Stax, there is no going back. Considering the cost, maybe it's better not to hear them after all!
