According to the Stax website, Stax’s “major technology advancement is the ‘MILER-3’ (Multi-Layer-Elect-Rords)—a four-layer fixed electrode combining mesh electrodes and conventional etching electrodes crimped together by thermal diffusion bonding. … The SR-X9000 diaphragm is made of ultra-thin engineering film that is 20% larger than the previous flagship SR-009S.” According to the Woo website, the diaphragm mass has been reduced “to create a lightning-fast reaction speed and more extended high-frequency response.”

On the SR-X9000, the Omega’s heavy enclosure has been replaced by a lighter, machined-aluminum one: Now the entire well-fashioned, superbly finished, open-backed headphone weighs just 432gm.
